Makeup is like magic that can totally transform the way you feel on a Monday. But if you keep applying the same set of cosmetics in the ‘formula way’, then you would obviously not be able to experience the Wow. Get innovative and try out something interesting like a ‘No Makeup’ look with just 3 Maybelline products like I did.
Here’s how it works for a post-work outing:
# I first applied Maybelline BB cream – Clear Glow – 02 Radiance on my face. I love the texture and the subtle, soft finish it has and makes the skin look flawless.
# Ever since I discovered The Nudes palette of eye shadows, it has become my ‘go to’ solution. I can use the shades of brown, beige and black to define my eyes in as many ways as I can imagine. As an add on, I groom my eyebrow with the tan brown colour and contour my face with the same. It’s a 3 way wonder product for me!
# Since I wanted to keep the lips soft, I opted for a hint coral with Color Show – Orange icon lipstick and felt picture perfect instantly!
Google is informative and sometimes quite surprising as well. This would be just another ‘Monday’ unless I chanced upon the fun fact that it is ‘Kiss Day’! You may find it cute or ‘huh’, I suggest you make it ‘Wow’ your style. Here’s what you can do may be to…
Keep – It – Simple- n- Sweet:
#Wardrobe: If you choose to be fashion forward, sport the quirky lip prints on the attire you wear today. It is trending this season so make the most of it!
#Accessories: You can sport a neck piece or earrings with lip motifs or even hair accessories to keep it cute.
You can try an ombre style that MAC Cosmetics Artist, Manseey Vorra from MAC PRO Store, Juhu created for me.
As seen in the pix, I am wearing a bright red -Ruby Woo on the outer rim of my lips and a hint of a fuchsia pink – Flat Out Fabulous in the inner core of the puckers
#Well, pout for a pretty selfie if nothing else since this dual-tone effect will instantly plump up your pout, make you look stunning and wow!
If you think YAWN can be your style statement for the first day of the week, then it’s time to wake up to some magic of makeup. MAC Cosmetics Artist, Manseey Vorra from MAC PRO Store, Juhu, helped me to perfect the ‘Un-sleepy’ Monday look (as I call it!), with smart use of products.
Here’s how to do it:
# Make sure to apply a good foundation to create the illusion of a flawless complexion.
# Add a dash of blush on the apples of the cheeks to look fresh.
# Pretty up the eyes by playing with a hint of pop colour towards the inner corners of the eyes.
Also, make sure to blend it into a warmer colour that you can use in the socket of the eyes, towards the outer corners.
#Groom the eyebrows with a dust of dark eyeshadow and fill in the gaps between the hair to make them look fuller.
#Keep the pout soft and subtle with a touch of colour that complements this look beautifully.
Shrug off those Monday blues and get glamourous even while you are @work.
