Want to sex up your make-up in an instant? Whether you’re transitioning from office to after-work drinks or even a hot date, these beauty tricks will take your look to the next level in a few minutes flat.
LIPS:For date nights, pick a lipstick shade that compliments your natural lip colour for a minimal yet glam look. Choose a long-wearing yet moisturising lipstick which won’t dry out your pout. L’Oréal Paris Infallible 2-Step Lip Colouris smooch-resistant and contains hyaluronic gel to keep your lips hydrated.
FACE:A BB cream enhances your natural complexion, offering coverage while making your face look soft, dewy and luminous. This will also prep and prime the skin for make-up.
LASHES:Give yourself a sultry stare with lashings of mascara. We can’t go past the Volume Million Lashes Mascara for its ultra-flirty effect. To add extra thickness, dust your lashes with translucent powder prior to applying the wand, using a lash comb between each coat to prevent clumping.
CHEEKS:There’s nothing flirtier than naturally flushed cheeks. Want to know how to fake it? Apply a smidgen of rosy blush such as Life’s A Peachon the apples of your cheeks and finish off with a dusting bronzer, blending it out towards your temples.
BROWS:Eyebrows are important as they help to frame the face. Tame strays by combing upward with a clear brow gel, before filling any gaps with a brow pencil, such as Brow Artist Shaper, that’s close to your natural brow colour. To accentuate their shape, use a touch of highlighter or illuminator under the brows.
HAIR: A tousled ‘do will do the trick. Save time by prepping in the morning. After you wash your hair, dry it until it’s slightly damp, pulling it up into a bun and leaving it there for the rest of the day. Just before you go out, take it out and spritz it with a curl spray.
