We’ve got tips for girls whose look is more low key and subtle OR if you love to be more bold!
1. Five Minute Prep
Before applying any makeup, be sure to wash, moisturize your skin and apply a primer before wear. Makeup goes on much easier and stays on for much longer throughout the day with a great starting layer.
2. Use Foundation As The Base
Apply a light coverage foundation to your face as the base. This will help set the makeup to ensure it doesn’t melt off in hotter months. Using foundation can also help reduce shine.
3. Hide Those Dark Circles
Glasses tend to cast a shadow under your eyes so you’ll want to use an under-eye brightening concealer under both eyes. This will make the eyes appear whiter and help counteract any dark circles and lines.
4. Brows Are Key!
Your eyebrows should match the type of frame that you’re wearing. If you’re wearing a thinner frame, add some thickness to your brow with an eyebrow pencil. If you’re wearing a thicker frame, keep the brows on the lighter side by applying a transparent brow gel.
5. Eyes Are The Windows Of The Soul
Use liquid eyeliner to make your eyes pop even more! You can have a little fun with the eyeliner by doing a cat eye, lining both top and bottom lashes. You can also use an eyeliner in a fun color. Please note that if you’ve filled in your eyebrows, keep your eyeliner on the thinner side to avoid overkill. Use a volumizing and lengthening mascara to define your lashes and make your eyes stand out.
6. Bright And Bold Lips
A bright lip is necessary for pulling the whole look together. A dark lip gives you a more alluring look look while a brighter color makes your look more playful and fun – maybe even match your lip color to your frame! For this season, we’re loving pale pinks and plum lipstick colors.
7. Blush Is An Absolute Must
Depending on if you’re doing a bold lip or bold eye, apply blush accordingly. If you’re doing a bold lip, keep the blush on the muted side. If you’re doing a nude lip and a strong brow or eyeliner, you can add a brightly colored blush to your cheekbones.
