Ever wonder why millennials look so good while juggling student debt, work, and life simultaneously? Like their predecessors, they too swear by hacks, even when it comes to applying makeup.
Join the club of busy pretty women with the following professional makeup tips.
1. Five Essentials
You can skip out on any makeup product as long as you have these five items on your skin:
- Stick foundation
- Age control concealer for the under eyes.
- Blush kit or highlighter.
- Your longest lasting
If you’re prone to skin conditions, make sure the above cosmetics are suitable for all skin types.
2. Always Moisturize
Before starting your quick makeup routine, be sure to wash and moisturize your face to prepare it for long-lasting coverage.
Once you have the skin looking nice and dewy, pick up your stick foundation and apply only where you see imperfections. Do this everywhere on your face and neck and even under the eyes, but be sure to leave some for the concealer.
3. For the Under Eyes
Your foundation is unlikely to provide coverage for unusually dark circles. Instead of applying layer upon layer of it and risking cakey under-eyes, buy a concealer that’s a shade lighter than your skin to hide your tired eyes. Also, invest in a dark circle primer or corrector to neutralize the blue and keep your concealer to its true color.
You can also use your concealer on redness and other imperfections your foundation was unable to cover.
4. One Last Thing
Making your eyes look on-fleek with eyeliner can take the kind of time you just don’t have for the next few years, but you can always forego it for a quick flick of your mascara.
Before moving on to the rest of your face, be sure to embolden your lashes with a high-quality mascara that can polish down to your last lash. Make it a point to go from left to right, not straight or haphazardly.
5. Lipstick Time!
If you want, you can add some color to your eyelids with the same blush kit that you use to tint your cheeks or a highlighter.
Once you’ve done that, it’s time to move on to your lips. We recommend a bold, shimmery color to distract from the rest of your face. Plus, you can always use it to add some color to your cheeks.
