5 fresh makeup looks you can try in 10 minutes
When you're busy, you often don't have 30 or 40 minutes to spend on a full makeup regime. So, to help you keep your makeup looking gorgeous all day long, here are five looks you can easily achieve with just 10 minutes to spare.
1. Natural look
The so-called "natural" look is a great makeup design to start with because it also makes for a great canvas for building on throughout the day.
- Use a tinted moisturizer or foundation to create your base, and add some concealer around problem areas like dark circles under the eyes.
- Dust a soft, cream blush over your cheeks and set with some powder.
- You can either just curl your eyelashes or add a light coat of mascara over them for some extra pop.
- Use a very light, neutral color of eyeshadow to brighten your eyes.
- Brush your eyebrows to create a nice, natural shape.
2. Bold eyeshadow
Ready to stand out? Bold eyeshadow is a quick and simple way to add depth, color, and shape to your eyes.
- Start with a neutral base so the color doesn't bleed into your new shades.
- Use a quality brush to blend the eyeshadow so you can avoid any harsh lines.
- For a more pigmented look, wet your eyeshadow brush before you use it.
If you're going for super bold eyeshadow, keep the rest of your makeup fairly neutral so your eyes take center stage!
3. Sculpted eyebrows
Immaculate brows can elevate any makeup look.
- Use a pencil or eyeshadow to gently fill any gaps.
- Run a brush over your eyebrows for extra separation and a "groomed" feel.
4. Stunning eyeliner
Eyeliner can take your makeup from subtle to knockout in just a few strokes.
- Emphasize your eyes by sweeping some pencil liner along your top lash line.
- Or, sweep some liquid liner over your eyelid for the winged look.
5. Thick eyelashes
Eyelashes can really set off your look, especially if you're going for an otherwise natural vibe.
- If you're comfortable using fake lashes, great – they can instantly make your eyes pop.
- Otherwise, run a mascara wand over your top lashes a few times to make them stand out more.
