If you want to look natural, polished, and professional but don’t want to spend a lot of time on your morning makeup routine—the tips below are for you.
Have Your Lashes Lifted And Tinted
Lifting and tinting takes about an hour once every 5 or 6 weeks. Unlike lash extensions, it curls or lifts your natural lashes in an upward position. Then a vegetable dye is used to temporarily tint your lashes jet black, or your color of choice. This opens up your eyes and eliminates the need for morning mascara—as well as the racoon-eye effect when mascara smears.
Moisture, Prime, Color, And Set
Next up, you need to apply an SPF moisturizer to your skin. Between your skincare products you need a minimum of SPF 50. I like to blend my primer in with my moisturizer to minimize how many products I need to apply. Let your primer and moisturizer set for a minute or two, then apply a tinted beauty balm or a fuller coverage option like Revlon’s PhotoReady Foundation. Apply blush and eyeliner if you want. To set and create an all-day hold spray MAC’s Prep, Prime, & Fix.
I believe that if there is a place to splurge and spend a bit more on makeup it’s your lipstick. I’m not a fan of the long-lasting lipstick formulas that need a special makeup remover, as they dry out my lips. Instead look for a lip stain or tint. If you really want to splurge Givenchy’s Le Rose Perfecto really is as impressive as it sounds. It creates a flattering color for every lip and skin tone, is moisturizing, long-lasting, and easily washes off at the end of the day.
Here’s to looking your best with a simple morning routine!
