Yesterday I fond myself in a major beauty emergency. I was just passing by the office to get a CD–I have flexible hours and get to work from home—so I wore nothing except tinted moisturizer and gloss. Then my boss comes running and says, ‘The regional director is here and he wants to meet you!’ I was in a panic! Thankfully I had these beauty items in my makeup bag, and they took me from ‘laid back’ to ‘crisp and professional.’
It hides the dark spots, the blemishes, the redness so your skin looks more even-toned and flawless. That alone makes a world of difference. You may not win any beauty awards but at least you don’t look like the walking dead.
If you must wear only one thing, let it be mascara. It opens up the eyes, so you look bright-eyed and alert. Choose the blackest mascara you can find, since the color will make our eyelashes look thicker even if you don’t have an eyelash curler.
Paired with a mascara it can make your eyes ‘pop.’
Deep pink lipstick
You know why I love this? After swiping it on your lips, you can pat a small amount on your check, blend and voila—instant blush! (Love lipstick? Read more tips on fabulous looking lips.)
Forget smoky eyes and three-step blending. Just apply a light shimmery eyeshadow in champagne or pink from the lashes to just above the crease. This will also open up the eye area.
