Beauty Pick Me Up - 3 New Looks To Try This Week!

We've all got our morning makeup routine down pat. Face, eyes, lips ... out the door!


But why not switch it up a little and give your look a makeup makeover? It's not just fun to spice things up and try out a new look, but you may be surprised with all the compliments you get!


When it comes to beauty, it's all about looking your best; When it comes to mornings, it's all about the quickest and easiest ways to save time. We were inspired by backstage beauty at fashion shows and narrowed down three must-try beauty looks that are fast, simple and perfect for day!



The Bold Lip - There's so many bold lip colors in style right now - Cherry red, hot pink, orange-red - and it's such an easy trend to try!

Let the bold lips take center stage and keep the rest of your makeup simple with just mascara or a thin line of eyeliner and a touch of bronzer. Then using a freshly sharpened lip liner, carefully line the outside of your lips. Fill in with your desired color, blot and go!

For extra shine, add a coat of clear gloss.



Vibrant Eyes - Beauty is all about balance. Play up your eyes and tone down the rest of your makeup to make them really pop.

Choose a vibrant shadow or shadow palette. We love teal or violet. The sweep over you lids, with the lighter color first and the darker shade in the crease.

Add a thin line of eyeliner and finish with a layer or two of volumizing mascara. Complete the look with a nude or peach lip and a touch of blush at the apple of your cheeks.



Bare-Faced Beauty - There's an art to making it look like you have no makeup on when you do. Start of with a tinted moisturizer and a little cream blush to give your skin a dewy look.

Using an eyeshadow that's a shade or two darker than your skin tone, sweep across your lid and blend. Line your lids with a thin line of eyeliner and a few coats of lengthening and defining mascara.

Fill in your brows lightly if needed and finish the look off with a peachy pink lipstick or gloss. Fin.
