Step 1: Foundation

Gently pull your hair back and cover it.
In order to get that flawless natural look, we are going to erase what nature gave us by covering up the eyebrows. I achieved this by using only half a stick of concealer and pressing firmly with some setting powder. Stop at this point to do your best Casper impersonation in the mirror. "Can I keep you?"

Step 2: Eyes

With your eyeliner pen, make a nice little cat eye. Just flick it out from the corners to make it pretty. These will not only help you trap a man, but also stare daggers into your his soul when he eventually betrays you.

Next, extend your lid out with some white to give yourself some extra real estate to work with. You can't trap men with your eyes without a place to keep them!

After, with a dark colour, blend out your new lid. We're trying to avoid harsh lines with this look.

To make the whites of your eyes look whiter and hide the slight jaundice from drinking yourself to sleep after your third breakup since the new year, add some soft white under your bottom lashes. Create a new flirty lash line for yourself underneath. If you make a mistake, just cover it in glitter. People are easily distracted by shiny things, and it'll make you look expensive.

Step 3: Contour

Now it's time to create a new shape for your face. Subtle is best. Apply your contour from your ear to your mouth. Remember to blend! If you find yourself being too heavy-handed, that's okay - men like to be reminded of their mothers.

Make sure to contour the rest of your face too: your nose, forehead, and chin. Don't worry, swordfish is a natural look, and you're a fishy babe.

Step 4: Blush

Blush is a nice way to fake you still have blood running through your veins. Whether you want to apply a little to mimic when your landlord said you had a pretty mouth, or a lot to resemble your crush finding your browser history, it still counts as natural.

Step 5: Lips

To make your lips look naturally larger, just lightly hug the line of your lips with your lip liner. Fill in your lips with a lovely pigmented pink lipstick, and then seal it in with a layer of lip gloss. This will leave you with some lipstick left after sipping on your fifth daiquiri.

Step 6: Brows

To make your eyes look more awake, draw your brows slightly above where your covered brows are. Make sure to use a colour that matches your natural nair. A longer brow will make your eyes look wider. Push that brow line gently towards your hair line.

Step 7: Finishing Touches

Set your look with a little finishing powder and marvel in your work! If you did the job right, people will surely confuse you with a movie star!

"Oh my God, is that Brittany Murphy?"
"Isn't she dead now?"

Step 8: You're Done!

Let your hair down, get dressed, and go out on a night in the town. Thumbs up girl, you're a natural beauty now!
