Let's keep it casual!

Saturday, June 07, 2008

Creating a casual look is quick and easy. Five minutes or less and a few well-chosen products are all it takes.

Going casual doesn't mean going au naturel. You can still wear makeup and some color without looking like you're going to a party! Here are some fail safe makeup tips to help you put on a casual face for lunch dates and malling! Text by Sabs Hernandez

Apply a concealer that best matches your natural coloring to correct under eye circles. Blend in patting motions with your ring finger for this applies the least pressure. Don't tug! Because tugging may cause wrinkles and may cause the under eye area to sag in due time.

Even out skin color with a powder foundation shade that best matches your natural coloring. Apply it all over your face with a large powder brush. Include your eyelids but exclude the areas under your eyes.

Apply a soft, natural color powder blush or bronzer to the balls of your cheeks. Brush any leftover blush toward the center of your upper eyelids to create lift. For a natural sun-kissed look, apply bronzer all over face with a large powder brush.

Keep eyes simple and basic by applying a wash of natural-colored eyeshadow such as mocha, peach or taupe, to the entire eyelid area. Then use a light colored khol pencil on the lash line and smudge with a sponge-tip applicator.

Curl your lashes, and apply a single coat of curling and lengthening mascara.

Finish the look with a lip color that gives your skin and eyes a bright lift.
