If you spend three minutes making your lips a statement piece, the rest of your makeup can be as simple and as understated as you want. Remember to invest in a good lip liner, as this will keep the colour confined to your lips – you’ll have a neat, strong line, which is very important with strong colours.
Your eyes can be just as an important a focal point as your lips, and the way to accomplish this is trough shimmery or metallic eyeshadow. A flattering, classy way to incorporate it is through a smoky eye technique, as this will prevent the glimmer from looking cheap and overdone.
The false lash look can take very long to perfect and if you don’t use the right product you can end up looking very tacky. Guarantee your glam look by investing in a good mascara that can give you the length and volume you could never pull off during the day. Now is the chance for you to be ultra-feminine with those fluttering lashes – no glam look is complete without them!
Keep your eyebrows straight
An arched brow is a quick way to make your look too overdone, and it takes very long to make this look work. Straight brows are all the rage now, and the good news is they take almost no time to perfect. Just make sure you have a good eyebrow pencil in the right colour, and you won’t need any time at all.
Contouring can be quick
You may not have time for a full contouring session, but that is no excuse not to highlight. The faster version of contouring is to use powders on the surface of your makeup instead of using cream foundations at the base.
