With just a few steps you can completely transform your look! This is an easy everyday makeup routine, and it makes all the difference in the world!
Step one: Apply your primer, then apply a foundation that matches your skin tone to your entire face, including your eye lids. This creates a nice base for the rest of your makeup application, as well as evens out your complexion. Hint: find your perfect foundation by matching it to your chest. This way- you don’t look like a floating head!
Step two: Apply a light application of blush to your cheekbones, starting at least two fingers away from the corner of your mouth. Apply JUST to the cheek bones for a sleek, contoured look!
Step three: Line eyes with your favorite eyeliner. Try lining the top with a liquid liner, then line the bottom with a pencil. If you wish, add a cat eye for a more dramatic look. Place your liner at the outer tip of your eye and sweep a line upwards towards the end of your eyebrow. If you are looking for a more natural look, line only the top of your eye and in a lighter color, such as brown, tan or even grey!
Step four: This has given your foundation a chance to settle in all the nooks and crannies, pooling up in areas where too much may have been applied, and has now mixed with all of those skin oils of yours. So this is a critical step- take oil blotting paper and blot all that extra stuff off. This will keep you looking flawless, as well as prolong your makeup wear.
Step five: Sweep a nude lip gloss, or lipstick across your puckers!
Finish off by spritzing your favorite makeup setting spray. I like to do two on each side of my face and one in the middle.
Of course there is so much you can add to this look; filled in eyebrows, eyeshadow creations, bronzer, highlighting and contouring… The possibilities are endless. This is just the bare minimum for a complete makeup look that doesn’t take too long to do on a daily basis, and still keeps you looking your best. After a few days of this routine, it should only take you maybe ten minutes to complete this look, and you’ll look more bright, alert and fresh for the day ahead! Relish in what a difference makeup makes!
