Quick Vacation Makeup Ideas
If you’re on a vacation, the last thing you want to do is spend a lot of time inside getting ready and missing out on the fun you could be having. However, that doesn’t mean you don’t also want to look good. Below are a few tips from Amazing Lash Studio Houston that will have you looking great and out the door in no time.
Glowing skin is all the rage right now. It makes you look younger, and lit from within skin looks good on anybody. Highlighters can make you glow when they are applied to the sections of your face that the sun normally hits, such as your nose, the top your cheekbones and your forehead. You can also apply a highlighter all over for a subtle, luminous effect.
Like highlighters, having rosy cheeks can make you look younger and fresh-faced. One easy method for getting a subtle blush that will last all day is to use a stain or a cream blush. Starting from the center of your cheeks, blend it out and down. Creams and stains can also do double duty as lip colors, so just blot off any excess product on your lips.
Go (Sort of) Naked
A full face of foundation is not likely to last through a day on the beach, and any foundation with enough coverage to do so will probably end up feeling like a mask. Instead of messing with foundation, embrace the freedom that comes from just using a concealer or a BB cream. BB creams can provide moisture, SPF and coverage, and they take only seconds to apply. Cover up any remaining trouble spots with a stick concealer, which will last longer than a liquid, and you’re ready to face the day.
Give Your Lips Some Gloss
Wearing lipstick can be a pain because you have to make sure it doesn’t transfer and that it doesn’t fade. A quick alternative is a nude gloss. Glosses make your lips look plumper, and a nude gloss can do a little bit of wandering without it looking like a three-year-old did your makeup.
Highlight Your Eyes
If you want to draw attention to your eyes, highlighters are the way to go. A subtle highlight added to the inner corner of your eyes and your brow bone can make your eyes look larger and only takes a few seconds to apply. Choose a highlighter color that is slightly metallic and compliments the colors of your skin. Peachy and champagne colors are great for fair skin, and olive and bronze highlights do well on darker skin.
Exaggerate Your Lashes
Long lashes are gorgeous, but few mascaras can stand up to sweat and salt water, so applying mascara at the beginning of the day may leave you looking like a raccoon after a few hours. False eyelashes are a popular alternative, but they often require mascara to look natural, and they can be a pain to apply.
However, you can still have long and luscious eyelashes all day by taking advantage of eyelash extensions. Extensions last for up to two months, and they are available for $79.99. We offer a variety of styles, so you can pick the one that’s right for you.
