Low Maintenance Makeup Tips for On-the-Go Professionals

In a perfect world, you would have enough time to leave the house every morning with a glamorous look that builds confidence. But in reality, there often is not enough time to even eat breakfast, let alone master a detailed makeup routine. Multipurpose makeup products are the key to low maintenance makeup that looks professional without the hassle of trends or timely application.

Multipurpose Cosmetics

Let’s face it – you only have so much time and money to spend on makeup. Sticking to the essentials that have diverse skill sets is definitely a great way to keep your makeup bag free of clutter and streamline your routine down to a science.

Beauty color sticks are the most versatile tool for any makeup routine. Designed to deliver pigmented color to cheeks, eyes, and lips, this little device is blush, eye shadow, and lipstick all-in-one. Look for waterproof formulas that are fade-free for long-lasting color and shimmer.

Highlighter pencils brighten eyes, contour cheekbones, and illuminate brow bones. Apply easily without excessive blending or time-consuming application and achieve long-lasting radiant results that effortlessly transition from office meetings to cocktails.

Quick Classic Looks

Sick of the same makeup look every day for work? Looking presentable and professional is one thing, but building confidence with creative style and flawless application is another. Here are a few tutorials to diversify your go-to everyday makeup style.

Fuller-Looking Lashes

Line your upper lash line with a waterproof eyeliner pencil. Vary thickness depending on preference. Apply highlighter to the inner corner of the eye to open and illuminate the area. Coat both sides of lashes for maximum volume and curl with your favorite cruelty free mascara.

60-Second Smoky Eye

Apply a warm neutral eye shadow to the entire lid and blend into the brow bone. Line the upper lash line with a waterproof eyeliner pencil in thick strokes. Before it sets, blend the line with a makeup brush or angled smudge tip. Thinly line the bottom lash line from the outside in, blending similarly to the top lash line. Finish with highlighting the inner corner of each eye.

Sophisticated Cat Eye

Using quick and short strokes, line the upper lash line with a waterproof eyeliner pencil or liquid eyeliner. Let it set for 30 seconds. With a closed lid, extend the line just past the outer lashes to create a tapered wing. Mirror the same process on the opposite eye. Try to mimic length and volume, but remember that wings should be sisters, not twins. Finish off with a voluminous vegan mascara.
