Choose neutral colours that will complement any outfit. This will become your signature look. You won’t even have to think twice in the morning as you create a consistent work of art.

Even out your skin tone

Mix some of your moisturiser with your foundation, and keep this with you always. This way, your skin will get moisture and you will get flawless and smooth skin instantly.

Focus on the three E’s

If you’re in a serious rush (or you’ve hit the alarm's snooze button too many times), just focus on the three E’s — eyebrows, eyeliner, and eyelashes. Brush and fill in brows, line your eyes using eyeliner, and slowly wiggle a mascara wand through your lashes for definition. If you’ve got under-eye darkness, a quick touch of concealer may be necessary.

Perfect your pout

Lip colour is the easiest way to make your lips stand out and the options are limitless. Choose a natural shade or one with a pop of colour to compliment your outfit. Remember the lesser pigment there is in a lip colour, the easier it is to apply. With a natural shade, you can safely apply well even without looking at a mirror.
