Between work, school, making time for friends and family – or just keeping up with life, we don’t always have hours to spend on makeup (no matter how much we might want to!) – that’s why we’ve got makeup tips to make sure you’re looking gorgeous when you’ve only got a few minutes to spare. Read on for life-changing makeup tips you’ll love!
1. TIGHTLINE YOUR EYES
This is one of our favorite makeup tips for a “barely there” look. It’s the technique of applying liner inside the lashline, on the waterline, for an extremely chic and subtle eye look that instantly brightens your eyes. You’ll need a flat eyeliner brush – like our Studio Pro Brush 11 Flat Eyeliner – and black eyeliner in either gel or cream form. You can also switch it up with the ultra-black wax shade in our Studio Pro Ultimate Brow Palette. It glides on smooth and stays all day.
Begin by looking into a mirror and tilting your chin upwards, and lifting your upper eyelid with your finger to hold it in place. Next, dip your brush into the black product and gently trace your upper waterline with the tip. Move across the eyelid with your brush, stopping before the inner corners for a more subdued effect. Avoid blinking for a bit to let the product dry. This trick instantly lifts your eyes and makes lashes more luxurious and full of life. If you have an extra minute to spare, top off your look by curling your lashes and adding a coat or two of mascara!
2. COLOR CORRECTOR
Some call it the holy grail of makeup. Color corrector evens your complexion, erases dark circles, and hides discoloration. There are a variety of shades – including green, purple, and orange – of this product that have different effects on skin. Yellow corrects purple undertones and minimizes dullness, while orange tones cancel out any undereye darkness and illuminate eyes to instantly look more awake. Color correctors are the perfect quick fix for a morning where you didn’t sleep well and want to look more put-together!
Our Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer is your ride-or-die for a radiant complexion, but did you know it also comes in glorious color corrector shades? Find yours below!
Pink – Corrects purple/blue discoloration on fair/light skin tones
Peach – Corrects dark spots for medium/deep skin tones
Yellow – Corrects purple/blue undertones and dullness
You can apply each of these under your concealer and blend to instantly hide your flaws and start your day looking fresh, flawless, and confident.
3. DON’T SKIP THE BROWS
Your brows are one of your most prominent features.They frame your face and can either make or break your makeup look. That’s why we’re here with makeup tips for beautiful brows in seconds!
It’s tempting to spend all morning creating the perfect arch, but there’s no time for that when you need to be out the door! You’ll have luxe brows in no time at all with just a few essentials – like our Studio Pro Shade & Define Duo Brow Pencil and Studio Pro Brush 13 – Angled Liner/Spooley! Instead of filling in brows in their entirety, just take a minute to shade the areas that are sparse or unruly until they match. With a thin, darker-hued tip for drawing precise, hair-like strokes and a thicker, slightly lighter hued tip for shading, our Studio Pro Shade & Define Duo Brow Pencil is a revolutionary tool with everything you need to throw shade in the best way. After you’re done filling in the sparse areas, comb out with the spooley end of our Studio Pro Brush 13 – Angled Liner/Spooley and you’ll be ready to go! If you have a little extra time, brush on some clear brow gel for all-day staying power!
