As modern women, we all live hectic and busy lives that leave little time for self pampering. This is why many women turn to express makeup techniques, especially since we’re all rushing to go to work in the morning. Even home-maker mums struggle to find time to put on makeup before going out, as they have to watch their kids and get them prepared too.
So the question in many women’s minds often is ” how can I apply makeup in the shortest time possible and still look fabulous?” Well here’s a step by step guide you can follow to achieve a glowing yet natural look. The no-makeup look is a growing trend nowadays as it brings out one’s natural beauty.
Step 1: Even out your skin tone by applying foundation and powder. There are many products out there that combine the two in the form of a liquid or powder and all you have to do is make sure you apply them evenly with your fingers or a sponge. There are even some makeup products that combine a concealer together with foundation and powder, and you can definitely save more time if you use one of these.
Alternatively, you can use BB cream or its other counterparts like CC or DD cream that contain moisturizing, anti aging and sunscreen properties to protect your skin all day long. Whichever product you go with, be sure to pick a shade nearest to your skin tone as possible.
Step 2: Pick a concealer that isn’t too bright and start applying them under your eyes to conceal dark circles, as well as on any uneven skin tones or blemishes you may have. Applying a lighter shade of concealer on your cheekbones and the center of your face along the nose line will help highlight your face and create a more contoured look. Remember to blend out well.
Step 3 : Line your eyes with a pencil, as this is the quickest way to do it. Apply some on your upper lids only and give them a quick smudge so that they don’t look ‘drawn on.’
Step 4: Comb your eyebrows and fill them in with short strokes using an eyebrow pencil. Be careful not to draw a sharp line on your eyebrows as this give them a very artificial look.
Step 5: Swipe on some lipstick and cheek tint. If you’re in a rush, you can always rub on some lipstick on your cheeks to give it some colour. Elianto lipsticks are a good place to start looking for shades that are not too garish. Try their Star Riche Rouge and Satin Matte Rouge lines to find shades that closely resemble your lips.
Now that you know the brief steps involved, it’s time to make makeup a simple and fuss free affair. You can now step out in confidence every time you leave the house.
