Don’t get us wrong, we love a fierce liquid lined eye and bold lip color just as much as the next girl, but every now and then we just want to look like … ourselves. Well, ourselves, only better. So when it comes to looking natural and beautiful we turn to these quick tips courtesy of makeup artist Emily Kate Warren. The best part? Not only do these tips help us look polished and pretty, but they save us time too!
Brows are the most important frame for you face. If the eyes are the picture, then the brows are the perfectly designed frame. So, you need to customize them to look your best.
Sleeping on two or three pillows at a time, or putting a wedge pillowpillow by Hudson – CC3015WQC/1 under your regular pillow will help get rid of dark circles under your eyes.
Exercise while dieting is a must or your skin will be too large (and saggy) for your smaller body. It is much, much tougher to tighten skin after your body shrinks than as you go.
After washing your face, rinse in cold water (fair-skinned people should use cool instead of cold) to close the pores and tighten the facial muscles.
Have clean hair. As mentioned above, find a hair care routine that suits your hair type. Some people find that they need to wash their hair daily, some people three or four times a week. Find a shampoo and conditioner that works for your hair, and stick to it. Take advantage of your natural attributes; if your hair is wavy, choose a haircut that suits wavy hair.
Everyone needs a nude colored lip liner in their makeup bag. You can use a nude lip liner with essentially any lipstick color if you choose a shade that is just slightly deeper than your natural lip color. An easy way to get neutral looking lips that will go with everything is to just fill in the entire lip with the liner and then lay on a coat of sheer gloss.
Stay hydrated. Drink at least 2 liters of water per day (approx. 8 glasses) and keep up those fruits and vegetables that contain a good amount of water in them. The water will keep your skin fresh and your eyes bright, and the vitamins in the fruit will keep you energetic and healthy.
