Post Work Makeup Hacks You Can Try Right Now
Do you like to go out with your friends after work? After a long day, you might not look and feel your best. Go from work to play in a few easy steps! Here are the post work makeup hacks every woman needs to know:
Refresh in the Car
If you’ve ever tried reapplying your makeup in a poorly lit room, then you know how uneven your makeup can end up looking. Instead, opt for natural light. Don’t have time to head home after work? Refresh your look in your car! Even on a cloudy day, your car is the best place to touch up any imperfections. Before you hit the ignition, hit your makeup bag.
Dust on Translucent Powder
Whether you have oily skin or dry, your foundation probably doesn’t look the same at the end of the day as it did in the beginning. There’s no need to start from scratch with your foundation. A touch of translucent powder will eliminate excess oil and make your existing makeup look fresh.
Apply an Extra Stroke of Blush or Bronzer
Add a little color and definition to your cheekbones with bronzer or blush. This will give your face the pick me up you need to go from day to night.
Add White to the Inner Corner of Your Lids
Use a light, shimmery shadow or a white eyeliner pencil to make your eyes look bigger and brighter. Apply it to the waterline and the corners of your eyes. If you want to look fresh for a night out, this subtle detail can make a big difference.
Darken the Crease of Your Lids
Add a darker shadow to the outer corner and crease of your eyelids. You don’t have to create an entire smoky eye; just add some depth to your eye makeup.
Add a Bold Lip Color
To complete your nighttime look, add a bright lip color. Choose a color that’s fun and suits your skin tone and your own personal style. For example, if you have light skin, go bold and avoid anything too pale that might wash you out.
