How To: One Color Makeup Look
Sunday is back, and so is a night out, or a night in – let’s save some time on getting ready and not be the diva preening in front of the mirror all day – the idea is to have fun, so let fun take centre stage!
Have a white eye shadow that you’ve been using only as a highlighter? This time, apply it on the entire lid & add to your eyes a dash of liner & mascara. If you’re a fan of the smokey eye look, you can use some grey or black eye shadow in the outer corners to give your peepers some depth. Liner styles like Egyptian & Winged look amazing when teamed up with a white shadow. This shade also makes your eyes look bigger and brighter, drawing focus to them. Finish the look with a dash of hot pink lipstick.
Have a deep maroon, almost ox-blood lipstick that you have been saving for something special? Well then, whip it out! Begin with a clean face, that’s adequately serum-ed and moisturized and then add in your favourite beauty balm. Then, fill in your lips with the burgundy lipstick. Don’t stop just there but, using your fingers dab a little of the lipstick onto your eyelid, piling on till you like the colour achieved. Use a hint of blush in soft pink if you feel the need, and add some mascara. That’s it – you are done!
Have a pink blush that you just adore for its super colour? Well, try it on your lips too! Again, a clean face, serum and then beauty balm or foundation and then some a compact for really gorgeous skin. Then, put on your blush as usual. Now pat the blush onto your lips, using your finger till you get the colour required – if it’s a crème blush then you’re done, but if was a powder blush, then just add some clear gloss or balm on your lips. You’re done!
Love your lovely bronzer? Then just use it all over for a gorgeously metal look. Plump out clean skin with serum and then just use a beauty balm for soft coverage. Use the bronzer all over – your face, on your eyes and a tad on your lips. Finish with some clear gloss and mascara.
Enjoy your Sunday with some great looks created with minimum effort! Cheers!
