Article Published: 5 December 2022
Learn how to create a quick and easy everyday makeup look that can be mastered in just five minutes using minimal makeup products.
Taking the time to apply a full makeup routine is certainly always a pleasure – but in those mornings when you’ve slept in a little too late and have a sleuth of errands to run or those evenings when you’ve raced home from work for a dinner date or special event with your friends a full-blown makeup routine isn’t always practical. With just a few products and techniques you can quickly and easily create a polished easy makeup look with a minimal makeup routine.
Create a Simple Base for an Everyday Makeup Look
Prep and Prime skin for Everyday Makeup
Prior to applying any makeup it’s a good idea to prep the skin with moisturizer and primer as this can help makeup apply smoother and look fresher. For skin prep before makeup try Absolue Soft Cream — it leaves skin with a dewy glow and helps to visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles, while rejuvenating skin with firmness, radiance and 24-hour hydration.
After moisturizing the skin create a base for your everyday makeup routine with a little primer. Our Teint Idole Ultra Wear Blur & Go Blurring Stick is perfect for creating a no makeup look. It’s lightweight, silky and helps to blur the pores and creates a filter like effect. Focus application on any areas where your pores may look larger or you have textured or uneven skin.
Cover Imperfections with a Concealer
Rather than reaching for your favorite bottle of foundation to create a full glam look try using concealer just on the areas where needed... For this look concealer doesn’t just have to stop at concealing dark circles, redness, dark spots, discoloration, breakouts, and any other skin imperfections, concealer can also be used to highlight, contour and sculpt the face. Our ultra-blendable concealer Teint Idole Ultra Wear All Over Concealer can has a lightweight, blendable consistency which is suitable for use all over. Additionally, it provides up to 24H of hydration and dries down to a natural matte finish that doesn’t feel heavy or cakey on the skin. Try using a lighter shade of concealer to highlight the center points of the face (including the nose, forehead, chin, and of course dark circles) and a darker shade to contour under the cheekbones, around the hairline and the jawline. This technique creates a naturally sculpted look for everyday makeup without the need of lots of different products or powders.
After sculpting the face add a flush of color to the cheeks to help restore radiance and glow. Rather than using a powder blush try using our liquid lipstick that can also be used as a blush. For a subtle everyday makeup shade try Drama Ink Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade 274 French Tea. Add a few dots to the cheeks and blend out with your fingertips for a naturally radiant everyday makeup look. With long-wearing properties the liquid lipstick works as a subtle cheek stain that is super long-lasting.
Easy Eye Makeup for Everyday
Simple Eyeshadow Look in Two Steps
Step 1: Buff the medium brown eyeshadow shade in the Hypnôse 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in Taupe Craze to the crease of the eyes using a fluffy blending brush.
Step 2: After contouring the eyes create a small and subtle line on the upper lash line using Drama Liqui-Pencil Eyeliner in the shade French Chocolate at the ends of the eyes apply a small winged eyeliner shape to give the eyes subtle lift. With 24-hour, longwear, waterproof capabilities its perfect for all day wear.
Mascara for a Simple Eye Makeup Look
Defining your eyes and helping them stand out doesn’t necessarily have to require a full-blown eye makeup look with complicated eyeshadow and fake eyelashes. To complement the simple eye makeup look of contoured eyes and subtle brown eyeliner add a few coats of mascara to complement the simple eye makeup look and open up the eyes.
For a beautiful soft lash for an everyday makeup look our Lash Idôle Mascara (also available in a waterproof mascara) is the ideal option. The lightweight gel mascara leaves lashes looking and feeling soft and plush without any clumps. The 360 bristles and mascara wand push up & fan out lashes for an open eye effect.
If you’d like to add even more lift to the lashes and help to further volumize and lengthen take an extra step with lash primer. Prior to applying mascara coat lashes with Cils Booster XL Mascara Primer which leaves lashes feeling luxurious and soft, while allowing the pigment of your mascara to stand out, thus, creating an intense and rich false-lash look.
Finish with Lipstick
Lipstick instantly elevates your look and ties everything together. It’s like the icing on the cake for your makeup regardless of if you’re wearing a full look or minimal makeup. For an easy makeup combination that complements the cheeks and creates a monochromatic makeup style use Drama Ink Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade 274 French Tea.
