“The brighter the lips, the brighter the smile.”
As the world struggles with the COVID-19 crisis, authorities are recommending that social-distancing and self-isolation practices are key to help control the spread.
In simple words, we need to stay home as much as possible to protect ourselves, family, friends and loved ones.
So, this is the perfect time to give yourself some extra self-care to look beautiful. This is important because when you look good you feel good and you keep anxiety under control. Now more than ever you need to feel good to stay healthy and strong.
As Coco Chanel so wisely said: “If you are sad, add more lipstick and attack.”
Plus, when you are at home you can go wild and try different looks. So, take out your makeup bag and let us begin.
Now, is the perfect time to find two eyeliners and see which one looks better on you. Or you can go wild and use a different colour in each eye.
One of my favourite ones is Etude House Bling Bling Eye Stick which adds sparkle and bling to your makeup. You could try Rose Star and Pink Meteor to complement each other. Using these pastel colours will give you the right amount of softness to be at home.
You can also take this time at home to perfect your black winged eyeliner.
A great tip to do winged eyeliner is to first create your wing with a felt-tip liner, which has less pigment and is better for mistakes. Then trace it over with a liquid or gel liner to deepen the colour.
A great option is Tonymoly Back Gel Eyeliner Long Brush that is a precision gel eyeliner to define your eyes. It comes in four colours brown, pearl brown, black, and latte brown.
This gel formula allows more control and precision than liquid eyeliner, so it is perfect to practice your black winged eyeliner.
Remember, to combine this look with feathered lashes and red lips.
Now that you have time, you can look at makeup tutorials and try out different eyeshadows looks.
A powerful and distinctive look is to get inspired by the moon. If you want to try this look you can use a dark blue eyeshadow and extend it past the corner of your eye.
You can also try complementary shades that create a phenomenal look. If you are a makeup beginner, you need to try MISSHA Triple Shadow that will allow you to easily achieve a natural gradient look.
It is available in 16 colour variations including Rose Fondue, Lilac City and Orange Parade.
Put On Some Mascara
If you want to make your eyes pop, you need to apply mascara. The first you need to decide is what you want out of your mascara. Do you want to volumize, lengthen, or define your lashes? The good news is that many products combine these effects.
For example, Tonymoly Delight Circle Lens Mascara that is available in:
- Volume Circle: Adds volume to thin eyelashes, creating a more defined and luscious look.
- Curling and Long Lash Circle: Naturally lifts and lengthens your lashes.
- Clear Circle: Perfect when for staying at home as it will give just more definition and natural length.
Remember, you can try to layer them for a more dramatic effect or just used one coat and enhance your natural beauty.
Finally, it is time to take care of your lips. During this challenging time, you need to take care of yourself and a great place to start is in your lips. Have you noticed that your lips are often the first to get affected when you are stress, anxious, or sad? This is because the skin of the lips is the thinnest and the most sensitive.
Set aside 15 minutes every day to take care of your lips:
- Exfoliate your lips with honey and sugar scrub
- Apply a lip balm such as Lip Sleeping Mask
- Apply a long-lasting lipstick such as Romand Zero Velvet Tint that is available in 11 colours. This lipstick will enhance your lips for a dreamy look.
Even though you don’t need to use makeup at home believe us you will feel much better. Wearing makeup, makes you feel happy and with more energy!
