The pandemic effect of staying indoors has affected almost everything in your life. Before that, visiting offices, colleges, and places outdoors gave us a good chance to get ready and use our favorite makeup and beauty products. With this pandemic, we have gotten used to not using any product or using fewer products and letting the ‘skin breathe.’ But as everything is slowly coming back to normal, we think your beloved beauty routine should too. Doesn’t matter if the pandemic made you shrink your makeup collection to just foundations/concealers, lip tints, and your favorite mascara or if you were already the ‘less is more kind girl. This blog post is for everyone who is looking for variations in makeup with fewer products.

Dewy Makeup Look

You can consider this makeup look to be a mix of makeup and skincare. That’s why The glow and shine that you get with this look makes you appear very healthy. To start with, mix a little bit of liquid highlighter with your daily moisturizer and use that as your base. For lips, you can either apply a tinted balm or go for glossy lips altogether. We would recommend you to use creamy products if you want to achieve the best results.
BONUS: Hack for Makeup Looks
Doesn’t matter if you are a pro or a newbie at doing makeup, everyone needs a little tip or hack here and there. Below are three of our favorite makeup hacks that we think you must know.
Mascara to Set Eyebrows
Hang on! We don’t want you to apply mascara directly to your eyebrows. All we’re suggesting is to use the spoolie of an old mascara to brush out your eyebrow hair. In this way, you’ll have no unruly hair and you’ll end up with a polished look.
Lipstick as Blush/Color Corrector
For a natural effect, you can use your favorite shade of lipstick and use it as a blush. You can also use your lip tint as a blush to achieve a naturally flushed look. Also, if you need any color correction around your mouth or eyes, you can use orange matte lipstick. Just apply the lipstick around those areas and put on some concealer like you usually would.
Eyeshadow as Highlighter
Did we tell you highlighter is your best friend? If not, we’re saying it now! It can easily be used with a moisturizer to get a subtle glow from within. But, it can also be applied as an eyeshadow and vice versa. You apply some shimmery eye shadow shade as your highlighter if you want to get that glam look and you’re maybe out of highlighter.
Makeup is a girl’s best friend, but it works even better when you take care of your skin regularly. We all know that sleeping with makeup is a complete no-no, but you must exfoliate your skin weekly to get rid of the dead skin and get your natural glow.
