Every woman does everything to be the most attractive. Some prioritize their natural beauty, while others spend a lot of time in the bathroom to get to work in their best light. If you are one of them, you should take advantage of this time to sleep longer. In addition, using a multitude of cosmetic products is not very useful for maintaining youth and freshness. It may sound amazing, but you don’t have to spend hours in front of the mirror. You just have to go for a healthy and fresh routine.
At Bright Side, we have found several alternatives to use less makeup, while remaining beautiful. Choose the ones that suit you best.
1- Do a light facial massage with a cream :
Before applying makeup, give a light facial massage using your usual cream. Goes through all massage lines, from the center of the face to the ends. This will allow the skin to “wake up” and appear fresher. However, you need to use less cosmetics to have a radiant face.
2- Store the eye cream in the refrigerator :
Some television presenters use this technique. The eye contour cream, taken straight from the refrigerator, will help fight the effects of lack of sleep: dark circles and swelling.
3- Apply the foundation with a damp sponge :
To make your skin appear smooth and even, but without showing that you’re wearing a kilogram of makeup, use this method:
Moisten the sponge with a tonic or thermal water.
Apply the product with the sponge on the T zone.
Spreads the foundation to the peripheral areas of the face.
The excess will be absorbed by the sponge and on the face you will have the necessary amount of product. This will also help to fill in the pores and irregularities present on the surface of the skin.
4- Fill in the space between the lashes with a pencil :
Draw a line in black pencil directly to the roots of the upper lashes, emphasizing the space between them. It is necessary to fill the area between the eyelashes, neither higher nor lower.
For this you have to look down, positioning the mirror under the face.
Draw short strokes, not a solid line. You can find more details on this eyelash filling technique on this beauty blog.
This line will allow your eyes to ‘open up’ and make them more expressive, while making the eyelashes longer visually. If your lashes are naturally dark, you can even do without mascara.
5- Apply blush to the eyelids :
If you need a quick refresh to your face and all you have to do is mascara and blush, you don’t have to panic – that’s enough.
When you apply the pink or peach colored blush on the cheekbones, run the brush over the eyelids and the area below the eyebrows: your eyes will be more open and will bring a little freshness. And eye shadows won’t be necessary.
6- Use tinted eyebrow gel :
A tinted gel for the eyebrows will make them more visible and more natural than if you redraw them with a pencil.
Obviously, this method only works if you pluck your eyebrows on a regular basis.
So, if you woke up late or don’t want to go to work with a lot of makeup on, just put on your eyebrows. It will take you 2 minutes, but you will find that with the eyebrows made up, the face will appear more expressive.
7- Replaces the corrector with a concealer :
The corrector and concealer help hide skin imperfections. However, these are two products that have some differences. The concealer is a lighter product, with a fluid texture, which can be applied to large areas.
Apply concealer to areas where light reflects: under the eyebrows, around the eyes and on Cupid’s bow.
You will appear rested and the product used will have a much more natural look.
8- Use a brightly colored pencil :
To make the eye color more intense, draw a line along the length of the lash line with a bright colored pencil.
Choose a color that is not the same as that of your eyes, but that causes a contrast. For example, people with green eyes can use orange, those with blue eyes can use gold, and for gray eyes, a blue or turquoise pencil. Beauties with brown eyes should opt for gold or a metallic color.
9- Apply the concealer to the lips :
If you are not a fan of brightly colored lipsticks or glitter, but you want voluminous and expressive lips, you can try this method:
Apply concealer around the lips and blend it.
Cover your lips with a transparent gloss.
10- Don’t forget the flashy lipstick :
This technique works the same as it does with the eyebrows. If your time is limited or you don’t want to use a lot of cosmetics, go for a flashy lipstick. The uniform face color, with a touch of color on the lips, will highlight your face and mouth.
11- Use an eyelash primer :
An eyelash primer or primer is a product that can be applied on its own or under mascara. It has skincare properties, slightly lengthens eyelashes and increases the effect of mascara. With a base under mascara, the eyelashes will appear longer, fuller, but at the same time without clumps, without them being stuck together.
The base can be used independently, especially if it is not transparent but black in color. Plus, you can dispense with strict office rules about using cosmetics, creating a nude look and making your eyes more expressive.
