Makeup Looks For Every Occasion
In collaboration with Female Magazine
Looking put together doesn’t have to be difficult! All it takes sometimes is just a few key products (and of course, an outfit you feel confident in) and you’re set. Read on to find out what you need for every occasion.
LOOK 1: EVERYDAY OFFICE

A natural look is perfect for the workplace. For simple looks like these, focus on the skin. A lightweight base with foundation and concealer coupled with a lengthening mascara will keep you looking fresh-faced. Slide a tinted lip balm or sheer lipstick in natural shades over your lips to finish the look.
We love how professional straight cut high-waist trousers look. Pair with a simple blouse or even a tee for casual Fridays! Put on a comfortable pair of high heels and make sure your trousers end just before reaching the floor.
LOOK 2: DATE NIGHT

Whether it’s a quiet dinner together or movie date, you’ll definitely get your date’s attention with this look. Let your lips do all the talking with a bright lip shade. Balance it out with more neutral toned eyeshadows and just a light hint of blush. And of course, highlight, highlight, highlight! Don’t forget to highlight your cupid’s bow just above your lips. Trust us.
Try matching one piece of your outfit to your lip colour to really let the shade pop. The key to confidence is to feel comfortable in whatever you’re wearing so if you don’t feel good about your outfit before you head out, change!
LOOK 3: PARTY TIME

It’s your license to go bold! Smokey eyeshadow in deep browns or greys plus a bold lip to match. If you have glittery eyeshadow on, opt for a matte lip to keep it all balanced out. Contour and highlight around the usual areas like your nose bridge, jaw and forehead.
Opt for an unconventional type of sexy with a low back top or dress. Pin your hair into a bun or high ponytail to really show off that sexy back. Want to go a step further? Take a long necklace and wear it the other way around so it falls gracefully down your back.
LOOK 4: WORKOUT SESH

If it’s a good workout, you’ll probably be sweating so it’s best to keep the makeup to a minimum. Stick to the essentials like a good brow gel and and eyeliner- make sure it’s a waterproof one! If you’ll be working outdoors, do your skin and apply a good dose of sunscreen.
Look for tops with cut outs at the side or at the back to help you keep cool throughout your workout. Plus, they look so chic. Mesh detailing (which are also trending!) will also do the same trick.
