Amp Up Your Eyes
Start by applying eyeliner to your lower lash line, and smudge the lines slightly with a clean fingertip. One of my personal favourite products to use is an eyeliner crayon that can also double as an eyeshadow.
For lashes coat them with a curling mascara from the mid-lengths of your lashes to ends. Curling mascaras with hold curl and volume much longer than any other mascara. Apply 2 coats and you can add false lashes for the evening or if you just want to add a bit more glamour.
Simply brush brow gel through your eyebrows this will give your brows added colour and depth to your brows which will give them a thicker, fuller finish.
Add a good concealer to the under-eye area and to any other areas that need a bit more extra coverage.
It’s All About The Lips
Apply a bright lipstick if you’re using red make sure you use a lip liner this will help sharpen the edges and keep the colour from feathering. You can also dot the lipstick on to your cheeks and blend to add a bit of colour instead of carrying around blusher.
Bring Some Colour Back To Your Face
Bronzer or blusher is the perfect way to add some colour to your face. Suck in your cheeks and sweep the brush in an upwards direction, this will give you colour and a bit of contouring too. You can use the bronzer or blusher as an eyeshadow too.
To freshen and complete your look add some moisture by spritzing over a setting spray.
That’s it your done simple quick and affordable way to keep your makeup bag minimal but get the absolute most out of your products.
