Summer is supposed to be all about relaxing on the beach and taking it easy with friends. However, most women don't have this luxury as they typically are running from work, to sports and then heading out for the night. Because of all this rushing, you may not have time to head home to take your makeup from day to night. Seventeen Magazine feels your pain and recently broke down the easiest ways to revamp your look in 60 seconds or less.
Play with purple
A fabulous and easy way to take your look from drab to fab in an instant is with purple eyeshadow or eyeliner. According to the news outlet, take a step back from using your typical black eyeliner and bring on the purple instead. Doing so will not only be all the makeup you need, but will help you stand out from everyone else in the room as well.
TheBeautyDepartment.com reports purple eyeshadow is also great for ladies with every eye color. The hue is intense enough to bring brown eyes out of their shells and mellow enough to keep from overpowering blue or green peepers.
Investing in peach-toned bronzer or blush is another fab and fast way to go from day to night, Seventeen reports. For spring and summer, orange is the new pink, and finding a peach product to enhance your cheekbones is a great way to rock this trend. Tip: try to find a compact with some shimmer to give your skin a sun-kissed glow.
We're seeing white
Some ladies out there may think white eyeshadow is so early 90s, however when worn correctly it can totally make your eyes shine. Smoky eyes continue to stun the fashion world and although using black eyeliner with this look works well, trying it with white eyeliner can be 10 times better. To rock this style simply use white eyeliner on the inner corner of your eyes and along your water lines to make your eyes pop and seem bigger. Take the makeup one step further by rocking a touch of white eyeshadow right below your brow lines.
Wake up and highlight
Going back to school can be rough, especially after getting used to sleeping in all summer. If you're feeling a bit dull with your morning routine, why not add some highlighting into your life? Seventeen reports a great way to brighten up before school or work is to try using a shimmering highlighter product on your cheekbones. This will give you the perfect natural glow. To use the product in the right spots, first smile to locate the apples of your cheeks, then apply the powder in a downward slant right above the apples to give the illusion of higher cheekbones.
