Being mindful of the things you shop for can also be an opportunity to contribute to a good cause. As I looked for a new lip gloss that I could use for a natural daily makeup routine, I came across Mary Kay’s Beauty That Counts program that helps change the lives of women and children and not only felt good about it, I LOVED it.
Here are the basic 1,2,3 makeup tips for the natural look that is fast and easy for everyday look:
Curl your lashes. Just as a flower looks beautiful and alive when its petals open up, extending and curling your lashes makes you look alive and awake, as if you bloom every morning.
After you curl your lashes, use a thickening and extending mascara as well as eyeliner on your top eyelid to open up your eyes even further and have that striking look.
Contouring is very popular but not everyone was the time to add the layers of makeup to get tones, depth and definition while running out the door. Go back to basics, buy a bronzer and follow the contour of the higher cheek bones, swift it over the length of your nose, a little on the forehead jawbone line – anywhere where the sun would naturally kiss your skin.
The final touch is the lips and you can go crazy with it. Because your makeup is so natural, any color goes! So pick a bright red or a soft lip gloss like Mary Kay’s Create Change, either way you will look FAB!
