How does a busy bee stay glamourous 24/7 this season? Here are 12 easy ways to achieve a great beauty look while on the run. Guess what? Light make-up users are definitely welcome!
1. Romance Ain’t Dead.
This season is all about romanticism. So look out for a burst of fresh romantic colours like Rose, Peach, Buttercup, Coral and Lilac and get creative incorporating it into your eye, cheek and lip makeup.
So instead of going completely bare, express your inner-self with hints of floral colours. You might find that just a touch of colour can help enhance your confidence and bring out a better you.
“These colours transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
2. Wink and Flutter
If our eyes are really the windows to our souls, why not brighten those lids with delicate floral colours?
Update your colour palette with the new KBeauty product range Cosungah 22 and their Jello Colour Kit. For 60 bucks, it provides 6 colours with both matte colours for delicate shading, and dazzling colours for a pearlescent finish. What’s cool about this is its jelly formula and cushion technology.
How to use: To create a spring-time look, apply Sparkle Pink on the inner corners of your eyes to give the illusion of bigger eyes, Matte Beige for delicate shading on the mid to outer lids, and Sparkle Bronze on the outer lids to up the sophistication.
3. Cheeky Monkey
Here’s how to create that cheeky, natural flush – like you’ve just pranced through a field of wild flowers while somehow maintaining really great hair. It’s also a great must-have in your make-up bag for a refreshing touch-up!
Try the Argan Glam Cushion Massage Blusher by Cyber Colours which comes in the perfect spring colours – Lavender and Coral Paradise. The Argan Glam Cushion Make-up Series is enriched with an anti-aging and highly moisturising ingredient, Argan Oil, and our favourite feature is also the built-in soft cushion which helps with easy, natural and soft blush application.
Here’s how to use it: Apply the cheek colour on the highest point of the cheekbone and brush towards the hairline, apply lightly and remember to tap the brush to shake off excess powder before applying. Remember we are going for a more natural look, so don’t overdo the colour.
4. Double the Kiss, Double the Love
Note to self: Lip colours no longer come in just one colour. Trending now are two-tone lip glosses which create a multi-dimensional effect on the lips!
We can’t wait to try Cosungah22’s Dual Lip Tint & Gloss ourselves because it comes as a smart dual package with tint on one side and gloss on the other.
Sasa recommends Velvet to create an alluring lip-look with both a burgundy hint and a sexy red gloss. How to use: First, apply the lip tint outward with the flocking tip for a natural gradation, then apply the lip gloss smoothly with the brush on top of the lip tint for moist, thick-looking lips.
The Dual Lip Tint & Gloss has a gel-like texture which results in a rich, vivid, long-lasting tint and it is made of Cupuacu butter for the ultimate lip hydration and nourishment. Of course, this product creates a super cool effect when layered. Don’t believe us? Check out the tutorial.
5. Match Your Lipstick to Your Skin tone
Although the lipstick shelves are always full of gorgeous colours, make sure you pick the ones that match your skin tone. Yes, the blood-red lip is always sexy but is it really the right tone for your skin?
6. For The Busy Ladies
It’s tempting to run out the door bare-faced, but it never hurts to let your natural beauty shine. In just five minutes, you could easily apply a quick coat of mascara and lip gloss which actually helps open up your eyes, and add a soft radiance to your face!
Looking for something fuss-free and really easy to use? Try the Argan Glam 2-Step Lip Paint from Cyber Colours. It makes creating sexy 3D lips super easy with its smooth delicate texture and cushion-tip blending brush. It’s also long-lasting and really nourishing for the lips as it contains Argan Oil!
To accentuate your eyes in no less than a minute with no risk of smearing, the Rocking Volume Mascara by Chosungah22 provides an intense black colour and a dramatic voluminous effect. Not only is it easy to use with a bullet-brush design, it’s also rich and healthy for the eye lashes because of its black jam-complex and silk amino acids.
7. Tidy Up Your Brows
For office ladies, we always need an easy-to-maintain yet classy look. Sasa says it’s all about the eyebrows. We often neglect them and underestimate how a well-groomed and tidy pair of eyebrows can help frame the eyes and result in a more polished look.
Here’s a product that will help you with that – Cyber Colours 3-in-1 Eyebrow Pen. It not just helps to fill in gaps but comes with a special brush that gives the brows a soft definition. It comes with a brow pen, brow powder and a brow brush, all at only $16.90!
8. Day to Night in Five Steps
Going out with the boy after work? Turn your day look into a va-va-voom night look by:
- Adding a darker colour to your eyelids,
- Adding more liner,
- Adding two to three coats of mascara,
- Using a darker shade of lipstick and/or
- Using shimmery powder just above the cheekbones and décolletage.
9. Summertime Freshness
It’s not easy to achieve a fresh, natural look. So Sasa recommends that with our hot and humid climate, we should go for nourishing and light-weight foundation.
Use something like the Chosungah22 Bounce Up Pact, which maintains skin moisture yet smartly absorbs excessive oil and sebum. It’s also smooth and light without leaving that oily feeling on your skin.
10. Perfect Coverage
Alternatively, if you are attending an event or wedding and require picture-perfect coverage, always start with a good primer which gives your skin a nice glow. Then, use a concealer and finally a foundation which suits your skin tone and skin type.
A foundation like Chosungah22 C&T Blend is an instant skin-brightener. It also uses a special ingredient – honey. The honey acts as a natural humectant which retains moisture in the skin for up to 24 hours. Healthy and fresh!
11. Remember to Blend
One common mistake we usually see ladies make is that their foundation is applied too hastily, resulting in a patchy or cakey look. Remember to take a little more time to blend it out first.
12. But first…
…beneath it all, healthy skin is the best make-up trick yet. Sasa recommends these daily habits for glowing skin:
- Drink 6 to 7 litres of water a day
- Drink warm water with lemon when you wake up
- Do not smoke
- Include fresh fruits, vegetable and lots of fibre in your diet
- Manage your stress levels
- Follow a daily skin care regime that includes cleansing, toning, moisturising and sun protection along with weekly treatment masks
