The goal of achieving a tone-on-tone makeup look is to show off your skin in the very best light. Highlighter is an essential beauty buy, in shades of pink, peach, and bronze, and keep every product you use around two shades darker than your natural skin colour. And then finish this look with well-groomed brows and well-dressed lashes.
