Here’s some few makeup tips you can sport on normal weekdays. The strategy is to stick to fresh and clean neutrals when you’re in a hurry. Then, just intensify everything to dazzle after dark.
For a Pretty and Polished Morning Look
Smooth Skin – The skin is in it’s most dewy state when you wake up so there’s no need to cover it up that much. Just apply a thin veil of water-based foundation. Thick formulas will make the skin look unnatural, not fresh and oily. Dab concealer over blemishes and undereye circles.
Rosy Cheeks – The cheeks are pale in the morning due to the slower circulation so fake a subtle flush with cream blush. Then dust on translucent powder to set.
Elegant Eyes – Running late for work? Opt for earth tones since they’re the easiest and fastest to put on. Sweep on a beige shadow, hitting your lash line and crease with an extra layer. This brightens and awakens the eyes without making them look too intense.
Lovely Lips – Since the body is just warming up during the morning, your pout needs plumping. Bite your lips to amp up blood flow to the area, then pat on balm. Avoid DARK tins – they can look harsh for day. Take that from Hollywood makeup artist Mally Roncal.
Red Hot Drama in the Afternoon
Sun-kissed Skin – The skin losses hydration as the day progress. Things like air conditioning and heat hasten the hydration process. Counteract the bone-dry effect by mixing your fonda with a light moisturizer to freshen up. Then, hide belimishes with an illuminating makeup.
Gorgeous Cheeks – Stress and caffeine can create extra redness by causing the blood vessels to swell under the skin so the face seems more rosy as the day goes on. So don’t add more blush-just brighten your existing shade with a sweep of translucent shimmer highlighter.
Sensual Eyes – The pupils dilate and turn catlike to help you see better at night. Take that sex-kitten effect up a notch by rimming your upper and lower lash lines with eyeliner. This creates a more mysterious look. Then refresh your mascara by brushing out any flakes with a lash comb before applying two new coats.
Glamorous Lips – Most people’s inhibitions decrease in the dark because the environment is very anonymous. Take that as your cue to wear a slick red lipstick, which looks especially sizzling in dim settings. For longer coverage, choose a lipstick with a sexy, glossy finish to define your pout.
