Essentials for Speedy Makeup Application
You just finished practice and you have a dinner date at your boyfriend’s house with his parents. Or, you’re off to a study group that’s meeting at the hottest hangout place in town after a long afternoon of chores. Or, you’re heading out with your best girlfriends to pick up some essentials at the mall after sleeping in a little too long. In your rush to look proper, you don’t have a lot of time to freshen up. Here are the essential make-up tools you’ll need to look vibrant, bright and well put together.
Wash your face with moisturizing cleanser.
A clean face translates well and it provides you with a little pick-me up.
Add a powder foundation.
Liquid foundation takes too long to apply and may look streaked if put on in a rush. Instead, opt for a powder foundation that applies evenly.
Swipe your eyes with a bit of mascara.
When mascara is applied to the top lashes, it creates the illusion that your eyes are lifted, which brighten your face.
Add lip-gloss in a color that compliments your skin tone.
Don’t worry about trendy colors because they may clash with the clothes you throw on last minute. Instead, have a color on-hand that compliments your natural beauty so it’ll look good no matter what the season.
Do a dual eye shadow.
If you must have an eye shadow, use a dual eye shadow stick in a golden or nude pallet. One side offers a darker color for your crease and the other side provides a lighter hue to fill the lid.
Throw it all together in a trendy makeup bag.
Keep everything together in one dual purposed make-up bag that would look smashing as a clutch, cross body or handbag.
Carry these essentials in your workout bag, backpack or purse for quick and easy touchups at any time.
