We all have those mornings where we just don’t feel like getting up and starting the dayâ€”let alone putting on makeup. Because really, how can you be expected to put on eyeliner when your eyes are only half awake? If that sounds way too familiar, here are some minimalistic makeup tips that will help you maintain a gorgeous look without any extra hassle.
Cover Up with BB/CC Cream
The overall application of coverup can be the longest part of the makeup routine. From moisturizer to concealer to powder foundation, it’s no wonder we want to ditch our routine. To speed up this part of process, use a BB or CC cream. It’ll work as a moisturizer while applying a light layer of coverage. It also adds a healthy glow to give you a nice fresh-faced look.
Strategically Apply Bronzer
Putting bronzer in key areas can make all the difference. Just a swift sweep of the bronzer brush over your temples, along the sides of your face, and right under the cheekbones is all it takes. This will immediately strengthen your bone structure without the need to completely contour anything.
Create an Easy Smoky Eye
On a lazy morning, a smoky eye sounds like the last trick you want to try. And with all the different eye shadow shades and eyeliner tricks around, creating this look can be too excessive. However, it doesn’t have to be! You can create a simple daytime smoky eye by applying a eyeliner pencil on the top and bottom lash lines. Then just use a smudging brush to create the hazy, blended effect.
Focus on Your Bottom Lash Mascara
We love how eyeliner outlines and shapes our eyes. However, it does take a certain technique that we aren’t always up for first thing in the morning. To get the same eye-shaping effect, apply a quick layer of mascara on the bottom lashes. You already have the mascara brush out for your top lashes, so what’s a quick swipe of the bottom ones?
Go with a Bold Lip
If you decide to go bare everywhere else on your face, at least commit to a bold lip. It’ll act almost as a distraction for the lack of other makeup. A girl with a bright-colored lip immediately looks put-together and ready to rock her day.MYNEWSHUB/Text: SARA KHALID
