Wouldn't it be great to spend minimal time primping ourselves in the mirror every morning and still look our best? Whether it be a natural no make up look, a fresh faced day look or something a bit more dramatic. Imagine being able to accomplish any of these in a matter of minutes.....and even better yet, imagine taking that look from day to night in even less time when the occasion should arise. It can be done and We’ll tell you how!
The No Make-up Look: it's all about the skin. Not too dewy or matte, the texture is "candle light looking", Aka something in between.
Start with a primer, let it absorb before applying a tinted moisturizer or BB cream. For additional coverage, use a concealer that matches your skin tone (not a shade lighter) under the eyes and on any imperfections. Using your fingers helps warm up the product to blend better into the skin. Clean hands of course! Set your face with a dusting of loose powder (translucent or tinted if more coverage is desired). Curl lashes and apply black mascara, brown if you have blonde lashes. For an added healthy looking touch, apply blush on the apples of your checks (the fleshy part when you smile). Find a shade that looks similar to your natural lip colour. Finish off by applying some tinted lip balm, don't go any darker than one shade from your natural lip colour.
Add Eye Liner: Eyeliner is always in style and a beauty staple. It’s also a quick and easy tool to take your make-up from day to night.
Use a black or brown waterproof pencil eyeliner and work it right into your lash line. Focus on the top lid for a more natural look. Try to apply the liner into where the lashes grow and maybe only a touch above. Keep it thin! If you make a mistake smudge it in with a cheap non fluffy cotton swab. Don't go right into the corners of your eyes. It most likely will bleed or gather there looking messy.
Bump it up with Eye Shadow: A super easy way to achieve a Smokey eye look (an all time fave).
Take your look from day to night (or wear this look for day if you like more drama) by adding either a bronze, grey or black shadow along the lash line (both top and bottom if you want intense smokey eyes). Blend the shadow into your liner, working it up a bit and fading out completely before you hit your crease. To be extra trendy, use a dark blue shadow in the same manner. Lastly, to make it uber current, let's put a touch of Vaseline, clear non menthol lip balm or even a clear gloss on the brow bone for a bit of highlight. Pair smokey eyes with a nude lip by working a bit of your concealer into your tinted lip balm, a classic, glamorous look.
Red Lips: Another option for evening is a statement lip in all shades of red from berry to a dark vampy shade and everything in between.
This lip can be worn with just the eyeliner or you can go full glam by adding it to your smokey eyes.
For this brow lovers: A strong brow is back and looks like it’s here to stay.
You can emphasize your brows with any of these looks. Fill them in lightly with a powder, pencil or wax. Find a shade that matches your natural brow colour, brush brows downwards to see the exact shape and fill in. Brush back into place.
