Whether you are gearing up for a big meeting or a video call with your team, chances are you would want to keep your makeup pretty and subtle. For achieving a head-turning look, start your face makeup with a matte primer to create a smooth, even base and give your complexion a non-greasy finish. Follow this step with a full coverage foundation and some brightening concealer to get flawless look. You can use the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool to find your perfect concealer match and opt for a shade or two lighter to get the perfect black dress makeup look.

Can’t wait to rock your little black dress at a date night? Here’s a quick trick for you. Give your skin a luminous glow by using a dewy primer and keep the rest of your base makeup as usual. Add some drama to your makeup for black dress by contouring your cheekbones and jawline. Apply a highlighter on your cheekbones in an upward motion, and then, apply it to the bridge and tip of your nose and on your cupid’s bow to turn up the glam quotient. If you want to take your eye makeup for black dress up a notch, go for the smokey eye look and finish it by adding a touch of shimmer to your eye.

• Casual meeting makeup look for a black dress
Catching up with a friend for coffee? All you can find in your wardrobe is a basic black t-shirt and a pair of blue jeans? Well, don’t think much, go for it because we have the perfect makeup look to rock this outfit. Start with a primer, and for this look, we recommend skipping foundation and going straight in with concealer for a natural finish. Make your skin look fresh and healthy by using a blush. Next, give a dramatic effect to your eyes by creating the cut crease eyeshadow look. Start by applying brown eyeshadow on your crease. Use a brightening concealer across the lid and cut your crease in a clean semi-circle. Pair your eyeshadow with a kajal to enhance your eyes, and achieve thick lashes by using a mascara. For the lips, use a pink lipstick. However, if you’re not in the mood for lipstick and want to keep it simple, you can go for a tinted lip balm and look the best from the rest.
