Looking for an easy way to look less tired? Haven’t slept all night, but you have a long day ahead? Want to look 25 again? There are some easy tips and tricks to help you do just that!
Go easy on the concealer for a natural look
Forget all that talk about loading up on concealer. It won’t erase those dark circles! In fact, it’s quite the contrary. Using a ton of cover up looks really unnatural and can make you look older. Instead, use a thin layer of a sheer concealer that evens out your skin tone without covering up your complexion completely.
Set your lipstick with powder through a tissue
When your lipstick smears and smudges, and hardly lastly an hour or two, here’s a little trick for you. Set it with translucent powder — but don’t put it directly on your lips. Instead, blot through a tissue so just the right amount of powder accesses your sexy lips.
Use multiple face masks to maximize your results
Skincare is not one-size-fits-all approach, so customizing your routine can help you get the best results for your complexion. You can use multiple face masks at once. Layer them simultaneously on the skin to combat different skin concerns at one time. If you have an oily T-zone but dry cheeks, for example, you can use a hydrating mask on the sides of your face and a charcoal one on your forehead, nose and chin. It’s just like you’re at a spa!
Stamp your lashes to make them look fuller
Say what? A quick way to add depth to your eyes without using eyeliner is mascara stamping. Gently pressing your mascara against the underside of your lashes gives them a fuller, darker look — almost like eyeliner, but more natural.
Pick the right blush
Blush can make your skin look radiant, but if you’re using the wrong color, it can actually clash with your complexion. Always pick the best shade for your skin tone so you can get glowing.
Use face gloss for a natural-looking highlight
This is an easy tip to try. Give face gloss a go. Rather than contouring your face, all you need to do is dab a little light-reflecting gloss along the tops of your cheekbones, on your brow bones, and in the center of your lips.
Apply blush according to your face shape
When applying blush, using your bone structure as your guide will give you the most flattering look. For example, oval face shapes should start the application on the cheekbones, sweeping lightly up the temples. Can’t figure it out?
