Beauty & Style
Since our everyday routine can be a bit lackluster, our complexion can use a bit of a pick-me-up on those special occasions- but who has the time?
When it comes to heading out to work, university or an early breakfast with friends- go for a flawless, illuminating makeup look to help you look a bit more put together. Using just 5 makeup products, this is a foolproof way to achieve a beautiful makeup look within a few minutes. These steps will enhance your features without looking overly caked with makeup.
Prepare your skin to ensure that it’s full hydrated, toned, moisturized and cleansed. Since the base of your makeup should be free of any oil and dirt, using the right skincare regimen is a must before you apply anything on your skin. If your skin leans towards the oilier side, use a mattifying foundation primer all over your skin. This will help your makeup last longer and look fresh throughout the day.
Since you’re going for a natural look, skip out on using any sort of heavy foundation. Opt for a BB cream or better yet mix in a few drops of your favorite moisturizer into your foundation. This will sheer out your foundation for a lighter coverage. If you still see any imperfections showing through, use a concealer to hide any spots, scars or discoloration. Now that your base is done, set it with a light translucent powder.
Add some color to your skin with a bright glowy blush. A shimmery blush that highlights your cheeks can work as a highlighter, try to avoid an overly glittery blush since it can look unnatural and a bit tacky for a daytime look. A rosy blush with finely milt shimmer can add a gorgeous glow to your complexion.
For your eyes, keep it simple with a black or brown eyeliner. Focus on making your eyes look soft yet defined. Avoid using eyeliner on your waterline since it can give a harsh appearance. Curl your lashes and apply a lengthening mascara.
Finish off your look by applying lipstick. There are few different looks you can go for since a lip color can change your entire makeup look. A rosy lip color adds a soft touch of color while a bold and bright lip can enhance your lips for a vibrant touch.
