I’m not afraid to go out without makeup — an anyone who knows me in real life knows that most days, I’m wearing some concealer and a lip color and nothing else. But still, sometimes I want that fresh, rosy “no makeup” look, which requires some makeup. Because without it, I look a little washed out. I teamed up with eos to show you a five minute routine with their new eos Aqua Dynamic Lip Gloss, for those days when I want to look fresh faced with a rosy glow. The cool thing about this lip gloss is that it gives you a natural, I-just-ate-a-popsicle stain (the color changes based on your lip chemistry) with a moisturizing, glossy finish. Have five minutes to spare? Follow these quick steps!
- Dab on some cream blush to the apples of your cheeks. Tap tap tap until it’s blended. I also like using a damp beautyblender to sheer it out, but your fingers will work just fine! I take the leftover and dab it on the bridge of my nose to give a subtle, sun-kissed look.
- Apply liquid highlighter to your cheekbones and right down the bridge of your nose (optional), and blend with your fingers. Don’t swipe, just tap your fingers and blend outward.
- If you have long, full lashes, you can go straight for your mascara and cut out a solid minute. I swear, once you get used to lashes these easy everyday ones take no time. I, however, have short and straight lashes that need a little more of a boost. I grab my everyday, wispy fake lashes for the days when I can’t be bothered with liner. These have a super thin strip at the base, so I can skip liner and make it look a little more natural. Tip for newbies: cut them to fit your eye shape, apply the glue and let it sit until it gets tacky before applying. I use tweezers to apply, looking down so I can get them as close to my lash line as possible. Then I secure the edges.
- Lastly, swipe on some eos Aqua Dynamic Lip Gloss to complete your look. This may look clear, but its color depends on your chemistry! Once applied, it takes on a rosy, iridescent hue with a glossy finish. It looks like a more saturated version of my natural lip color, and is especially great for those days when I want to give my lips a break from my usual matte products and use something more hydrating.
That’s it! All done:)
