Having a go-to collection that will have you looking put together in no time is essential on any beauty lovers counter. If you’re new to makeup, you want to keep it simple while you figure it all out. If you’re in a hurry, you also need the couple items that you know will get you out the door fast. Here are the 5 items that I recommend to everyone to create a simple, polished look for the day.
Item 1: Tinted Moisturizer
From the ease of application to the wearability, as it blends into your skin for a more natural look, I always recommend our Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer. It can adjust up and down about 3 shades, so you can get a seamless match. We have 6 shades available, so I can help you find one that matches you. It helps hide the red on my face, so I look like me, but with a more even skin tone. Foundation is the base of your look, so don’t skip this part! If you need a little extra coverage (under eyes or for a blemish) dab a bit of the concealer first before applying the tinted moisturizer.
Items 2 and 3: ShadowSense and Mascara
Adding that bit of mascara and a neutral shadow can help make your eyes look more awake and it always pulls my look together. Either grab our Moca Java, Mulberry or Pink Posey ShadowSense® that will complement your skin tone. All 3 of these colors can be added to your eyes, but also worn on your cheeks for blush. I love the monochromatic look, and this gives you that simple chic look, without having to overcomplicate it. Just swipe the same product on your eyes and your cheeks! Top it off with our waterproof or water-resistant mascara formulas- both work to grow your lashes while you wear it! I apply 2-3 coats of mascara for the best look.
Lastly, apply 3 coats of our all-day lip color and top with a generous coat of glossy gloss. This is where you can add a pop of color to your look without any extra effort. A minimal makeup look with a bold red is so chic and on-trend right now. Or grab a subtle pink that will have you primped and polished for the day ahead. Whichever color you choose to rock, just be sure to grab your gloss with you. That way you can reapply throughout the day to keep that staying power of LipSense.
That’s it! Those are the 5 items that I wear daily when I am about to head out for the day. Whether I’m teaching all day or just running errands on the weekend.
