Just like clothing, makeup has different uses and can be “styled” to create a variety of looks. My day to day makeup for an all day look at home is not the same as my night time makeup, or if I am shooting a TV segment.
However, “simple” doesn’t mean nada — it means using a few key products that will enhance your features and brighten your face to achieve an all day look that makes you feel ready to take on the day.
Here is a before and after and a few all day makeup tips you can use:
Start with a moisturizer first to dampen the skin: this one has SPF 15!
Add a light foundation (even over the lids: I discovered the ‘egg’ or round sponge-like applicator. Wet it a bit and squeeze out excess water then gently spread liquid makeup.
If you want a bit of sun kiss, add light bronzer then gently apply blush: I even do a light brush on the forehead, chin and nose.
Sweep the lashed with mascara: I skip the liner during the day, but naturally you can include it!
Lastly, finish it off with a moisturizing lip color stick and BOOM!
5 Steps for an All Day Look
Lista to take on the day AND it took no time at all — under 5 minutes! Everyone has their “one” thing they can’t leave the house without. I’m pretty easy, but I do like to have mascara, even if it’s a quick coat, and well, foundation/liquid makeup.
See how natural it looks? Fresh face, light and natural — and I could apply it with one hand. Now that’s some serious super mama powers!
