Back to Basics – Everyday Makeup

As the headline says, you should concentrate on the basics here.

Good foundation, perfect brows and a bit of contour is everything you need. When it comes to the lips, our suggestion is to go with neutral, nude or meat shades. They will match all outfits, and you won’t need correction – as you need with a red or burgundy lipstick.

Add a bit of black eyeliner, and you will be ready for a day!

Ready to Work – Makeup for the Office

Makeup for the office has to be professional and polished. The first thing you need to do is to pick the perfect moisturizer, to keep your skin hydrated while you are inside of your air-conditioned office. The good foundation is important, as it will hide all the imperfections. #makeuptipsPhoto: Instagram/@amandaensing

Your working hours might be hard or relaxed, but either way, you will need a right makeup to stay fresh and still to look beautiful.

For your office makeup, the first thing you need to do is to pick the perfect moisturizer, to keep your skin hydrated while you are inside of your air-conditioned office. The good foundation is something that will hide all the imperfections, while the concealer is there to hide the blue bags under your eyes.

Even if you are a fan of no-makeup makeup, we want to encourage you to try an excellent colorful lipstick for your office makeup. You won’t regret it!

Get Ready For the Gym – Workout Makeup

Yes, you can actually wear some lite workout makeup as well. Make sure you don’t wear heavy foundations or concealers. #makeuptipsPhoto: pinterest.com

Some of you might say – I don’t even wear makeup in the gym! And we can’t agree more with you.

You shouldn’t wear heavy foundations or concealers, but there are still a few things you need to pay attention to. Sweat will definitely ruin everything you decide to put on your face. That is why it is best to leave your face minimal, without foundation. Instead of that, try some nice mist or thermal water. Spray it before training, and you will see the results, we can guarantee you that.

When it comes to lips, you can put on nude, neutral lip color.

Getaway Plans – Travel Makeup

When traveling, you shouldn’t overdo with makeup. However, there are some things you can do. #makeuptipsPhoto: pinterest.com

We all love to travel, do you? If you are nodding (hope you are) then we should see how to do your travel makeup.

Similar to the workout makeup, you definitely shouldn’t overdo it with your makeup when travel. Especially if you are traveling by bus or plane.

However, there are some things you can do. You can pack your hydration masks, facial wipes, BB creams, and concealers. They will come handy when traveling on the plane.

To refresh after a long trip, put on eyeliner and a bit of your favorite mascara.

Teenager’s Favorite Night – Prom Makeup

The prom night is one of the most important dates in one girl’s life. That day you have a chance to show off your perfect dress, as well as your excellent makeup.

And that is precisely why both of these things have to be flawless. You can choose heavy makeup without wondering if you will look like you have overdone it. No – it is a special night, and it deserves a unique makeup as well.

If you are following trends, you know that bright pastel colors took a throne in the makeup industry as well. You can mix the colors and add some matte finish.

However, if you are not impressed with pastels, go with glitter.

Waiting for Mr. Right – Date Night Makeup

For a date night try to stay natural with your makeup. Put on a good foundation, the one that you are using every day and don’t overdo it with the eyeshadow and contour. #makeuptipsPhoto: pinterest.com

Date nights can be really tough. You are thinking about your Mr. right, and along with him, you are debating with your besties – what to wear and what makeup to put on? Tough question, isn’t it? Don’t worry, here are a few tips for you.

First of all, try to stay natural and to be you – don’t pretend you are a blogger from which you have taken notes for makeup tricks. Be yourself. Put on a good foundation, the one that you are using every day and don’t overdo it with the eyeshadow and contour.

Choose your lip color when you make a perfect outfit combination.

Business Gathering – Polished Makeup

Business and office makeup has to be polished and professional. No bright colored lipsticks - red, pink or magenta. Stay neutral with nude, meat shades or light pinks. #makeuptipsPhoto: pinterest.com

As we have already mentioned, you can move your boundaries when it comes to office makeup.

However, for a business meeting, keep it professional and polished. What does this mean? No bright colored lipsticks – red, pink or magenta. Stay neutral with nude, meat shades or light pinks.

The same rule applies to the eyeshadow as well. Try to keep it as polished as you can. Thin eyeliner line and some beige eyeshadow will do perfect work.

Pool Season is Open – Waterproof Makeup

It is pretty simple though – all you need to do is to find a perfect waterproof eyeliner and mascara. Trust me, you won’t need anything else! Sweat and water will take your foundation off, so don’t even try to put it.

You don’t want to look sloppy, right?

Girls Allowed – Night Out Makeup

For a night out you can let your makeup be bit heavier than it is every day. #makeuptipsPhoto: pinterest.com

For occasions like these, you can let your makeup be bit heavier than it is every day. Put on glitter eyeshadow (we vote for gold) and match it with some bright and exciting lip color.

Fix your brows, do a little bit of contour and voila! You are ready for a night full of excitement.
