Would you wear a cocktail dress to work? Or jeans and a T-shirt to a wedding? Like your clothes, what you wear on your face needs to be occasion appropriate. There are even times when bare-faced is best!
Here is a round up of how to create the right look for any occasion:
If you are spending your day outside, try a good bb cream or tinted moisturiser with an spf. Don't cake on too much full coverage foundation, because it will look overdone and artificial in natural light. I recommend applying primer, a lightweight bb cream and then buffing on mineral foundation for a completely flawless look. Overdoing shimmery shadows and highlighters can also look a bit OTT during the day. Keep the look dewy and fresh, without being shiny or glittery. For more about a fresh, daytime look click here.
Evening is a time when you can really smoke up those eyes, play with shimmer formulations and get those lashes out! Avoid products with spf if you are being photographed as it can cause camera flashback and give you the dreaded ghost face look in photos. Keep you makeup lasting longer with these amazing tips.
For those going to work in the office, fluorescent lights can be very unforgiving. A good, full coverage concealer is an essential step, followed by buffing in powder to stop it from creasing. If you don't have time, just a coat of mascara and lip gloss can be enough to look office-ready in minutes. To find out some great time saving looks for work click here.
Keeping skin bare and makeup free is a very wise move for regular fitness fiends, but there is nothing wrong with you if you do want to wear the little lip gloss or mascara. Outdoor sports an spf is an absolute must. Get your gym-friendly looks with these makeup tips.
This is the time to have a little fun, experiment with shades and formulations and enjoy interpreting your face. But try to avoid heavy coverage formulations, as these can clog pores. For acne-prone skin, use these tricks for clearer skin . To beat the back to school blues, here are some great colour ideas to cheer you up.
The most important think about that first date is just be yourself. And to be at your most natural, forget the fakery. Keep it simple, elegant and avoid too much fake tan, fake lashes and long long acrylic nails. Unless your purpose is to scare them off, of course! To get a flawless date-ready look click here.
Type 'bridal makeup' in any search engine and thousands of looks will prop up. At the moment, the natural look is all the rage, which I absolutely love. Shimmery, heavy, over the top, poorly blended bridal makeup is dated and looks awful. So whatever you do, avoid these fails.
You can look good in the sun at any age with the right products and formulations. Remember the spf, a decent lip balm, your favourite waterproof mascara and these age-defying tips.
