Now that your base is sorted, it’s time to fine tune everything else. For on-point brows that still look au naturale, we prefer Benefit’s Gimme Brow to create fuller looking brows that would give Cara Delevinge a run for her money. Containing tiny microfibers that adhere to your skin and hair, it helps create a natural-looking fullness.
Define your eyes with a soft brown eyeliner (black looks too make up-y) like Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil. The formula makes blending a breeze without compromising on its staying power. Line your upper eyelids as per normal, and dot 3 dots along your lower lashes and smudge with a cotton bud for extra definition. If you still need more pop in your eye area, grab some eye shadow that is just slightly darker than your skin tone and apply to the creases of your eye. We like Tarte’s Tartelette in Bloom Clay Palette for this as if offers a huge range of pigmented yet easily buildable skin-tone hues.
Speaking of eye definition, let’s not forget mascara. After curling with a heated eye lash curler, apply a couple of coats of lightweight mascara. It is important to choose a formula that doesn’t clump and is waterproof, so you don’t end up with smudges by the end of the day. Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof mascara features a volumising formula that is sweat and waterproof, adding just the right amount of definition to your lashes.
Add a pop of colour to your cheeks and lips with 2-in-1 formulas like Benefit’s Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain for a natural, radiant flush that’ll have everyone believing you actually do hit the gym frequently. If your lips are in need of a boost of moisture, choose a tinted lip balm like Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip. Loaded with shea butter and mango, it hydrates your puckers like you cannot believe and leaves a sheer tint that’s no makeup makeup-approved.
