Spending an hour on your makeup might be a meditative luxury, but it’s not the reality for many of us. However, we still want to look our very best.
Ali Andrea agrees, and shares three timeless, classic makeup looks that work for everyone and can be done in a rush. The pro artist gives specific product recommendations and application tips for different skin types.
First up, a “soft bronzy look” that features bronzer and blush buffed into the cheeks, temples, and the brow bone and crease of the eye. It’s the kind of makeup application that gives that youthful, awake, glowy look we associate with a day at the beach. Everything is soft and blended, with no difficult techniques or harsh lines.
Next up, the “touch of pink” look, a sheer, shiny base with cream blush and a pale pink inner corner highlight. The most badass bright pink lip brings the attitude. This is the kind of makeup you can apply with fingers only, with a romantic palette (Valentine’s Day, anyone?).
And lastly, the “eye accent” look. Learn how to use black shadow to create a soft, smoky wing (not a liquid liner in sight, phew).
