Theres a time, place, and look for everything. Below I’ve matched four different occasions with their makeup types.
Everyday Natural Look– You’re natural everyday look is for things like class, campus events, and everyday errands. Personally, I try to wear the least amount of makeup on these days. Spot covering blemishes with a concealer that matches your skin color is always a good idea if you don’t want a full face of makeup. Clinique’s moisture surge colour corrector is an awesome product for a clear natural looking face that blends with you’re natural skin tone. Using a clear mascara over your eyelashes and eyebrows will also give you a natural looking shine. Lastly, finish off the look with a light colored lip gloss.
Night Out– You’re night out makeup is going to be a bolder and more dramatic look than your everyday natural look. Of course, it depends on where you’re going. If you’re going to a night club, you want your makeup to be a more dramatic so that it’ll stand out in the darker lighting. If you’re going to a more causal sports bar/restaurant, you don’t have to go as dramatic. Some looks you could try:
- Bold Cat Eye
- Arched Eye Brows (Thickness based on your natural brows and shaped face)
- Smokey Eyeshadow (Black or navy blue)
- Dark Lips (Burgundy/Red/Pink)
- Shimmery Highlighter (Cheek bones)
Date Night- First impressions are everything. You don’t want to show up to your date with your “Night Out” makeup face on. It’s important to bring out the best of our features. Using light colored eyeshadows will make your eyes pop, and choose colors that compliment your eye color. You could also add your style choice of eyeliner, but the less dramatic the better. Give your face a glow by using a natural colored face powder or moisture surge with blush only where its needed. My personal favorite is a cherry red lip, but choose a color that your comfortable with but nothing TOO dark.
Professional– Your professional makeup is for situations such as class presentations, interviews, internships, and of course future jobs. This is a look you don’t want to overdo ladies. It would be a good idea to use your everyday face powders and concealers for the professional look. Applying a thin line of eyeliner and a light brush of mascara is all you need to do for your eyes. You could add a little blush on your cheek bones depending on the natural rosiness of your cheeks. The finish off this look, I would add a neutral colored lipstick, preferably matte and nothing to shiny.
Choose your face wisely ladies! XOXO
