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.
Let's get something straight - the last thing my makeup collection needs is another lip gloss that I obsessively collect but won't actually use. But if you're a gloss fiend like me, you know you're inevitably going to buy more lip products despite your better judgment, so the least you can do is limit your spending to quality products that multitask! Take L'Occitane's Pivoine Flora Lip Shine, for instance. The shimmery, lightweight formula, which ranges in shade from shiny nude to ripe ruby red, doesn't just provide the perfect sheen of flattering tint, but also pampers lips with soothing properties for a smooth application and soothed lips! Infused with peony extract, the Pivoine Flora non-sticky gloss contains peony extract for a delicate floral scent and to protect and pamper lips, helping them look and feel fabulously smooth the more you wear it! If this triple-duty lip shine isn't worth adding to your never-ending collection of makeup, you might as well give up the gloss cold turkey!Brought to you by our friends from TheFind!
