3 Quick Makeup Tips for a WOW Look

After a long work week, it’s finally the weekend. Time to let loose, have some fun and more importantly feel great about how you look. It’s common to think that achieving a glam look for an evening is time consuming. But these 3 simple tips will help create a “ta-da” look in a matter of minutes.

Brighten up those tired eyes. After a tiresome week in the office, your eyes might need a little pick me up. First, dab a white or cream shadow with a hint of shimmer in the inner corner of your eyes. This will give you a well-rested, brighter looking eye. Next, you’ll want to coat, coat, coat those lashes in layers of mascara. A deep black mascara will make any eye color pop. Think about applying your mascara in a way that your lashes frame your face. Use small wiggling motions to really separate those lashes and get as close to the root as you can. This can eliminate the need for eyeliner!

Color up those cheekbones. A subtle bronze sweep applied right under the cheekbones will give you a more defined and sleek face. Start by applying your bronzer at the hairline by the top of your ear and working your way down to the middle of your cheekbones with a blending motion. This technique will give you a gorgeous glow without looking too “muddy.” Other key places to dust your bronzer are at the top of the temple and at your jawline.

Lacquer your lips in a vivacious color. Or for a more classic look choose a bright red lip color. Your best bet is to start off with a red lip liner, outlining the shape of your lips and partially filling them in. Leave the center of your pout open to allow your lips to have more plump when the lipstick is applied. If you’re feeling bold,  try a fuchsia or bright berry. To play up the look, dust some of the same highlighter you used on the inner corner of your eyes on your cupids bow. This will give more shape and shine to the lips. A true wow look!

A wow look doesn’t have to take long. These three easy steps will leave you feeling fabulous and ready for a night out on the town.
