Makeup Look #1: Running Errands

Just because you’re running around grocery shopping, doing laundry, and completing other errands, doesn’t mean you have to skip putting on makeup. After all, you never know who you may bump into in the produce section!

What you’ll need: Shaping stick, highlighter palette, mascara

Step #1: Apply your base

To start your makeup look, use your shaping stick in a shade that matches your skin tone to cover up any blemishes and create an even complexion. Treat the stick like a concealer and apply it only where necessary. Blend the product out using your fingers.

Step #2: Add some color

While you don’t need to go all out when it comes to contouring, it never hurts to pop some color onto your cheeks! Grab the blush shade from your highlighter palette and apply it to your cheekbones using your fingers to give yourself an instant flush.

Step #3: Coat your lashes

Finish your no makeup, makeup look by applying a few coats of mascara to your lashes.

Makeup Look #2: Sunday Brunch

Sunday brunch calls for a natural makeup look that’s still glam enough to be Instagram-worthy. Here’s how to get the look:

What you’ll need: Shaping sticks, highlighter palette, eye shadow palette, mascara, lip gloss

Step #1: Perfect your base

When it comes to creating a flawless makeup look, it all starts with your complexion. Apply your shaping stick (in a shade that matches your skin tone) in an upside-down triangle under your eyes, on the center of your forehead, down the bridge of your nose, on the center of your chin, and along your cheekbones. Then, take a shade that’s one to two hues darker than your skin tone and apply it to the hollows of your cheeks, sides of your nose, and temples. Blend the formula out using your fingers for a perfectly contoured face.

Step #2: Finish your base

To complete your face makeup, apply a little blush to the apples of your cheeks. Then, pop some highlighter—from the same palette as your blush—onto your cheekbones and cupid’s bow.

Step #3: Grab your eye shadow

For your eye makeup look, you’ll want to keep things cute but simple. Try placing a trendy neutral hue on your lid, like the coral shade from your eye shadow palette. Then, use a medium brown shade to define your crease, making sure to blend well.

Step #4: Fill in your brows

Use a shade of eye shadow that matches your brows to lightly fill in any sparse areas. This will make all the difference in pictures—and we know brunch is a total photo opp.

Step #5: Apply mascara

Complete your eye makeup look by coating your lashes in mascara to amp up the volume and length.

Step #6: Paint your pout

Tie your look together and give your pout a subtle pink flush with a swipe of lip gloss.

Makeup Look #3: Girl’s Night Out

Getting ready for a girl’s night out? We have a makeup look for that! Here’s a step-by-step tutorial:

What you’ll need: Highlighter palette, eye shadow palette, mascara, lip gloss

Step #1: Define your features

Start by emphasizing and flattering your features using your highlighter palette. With the palette’s bronzer, lightly sculpt the hollows of your cheeks, your temples, and the sides of your nose. Complement your contoured cheeks with a dusting of blush on the apples of your cheeks and a little bit (or a lot) of highlighter atop your cheekbones.

Step #2: Create a smoky eye

A girl’s night out calls for a smoky eye! First, apply the gold shade from your palette all over your lid. Then, add some drama to your eye makeup by applying the darkest brown shade in your crease. To brighten your eyes, place the lightest shade in your inner corner.

Step #3: Line your eyes

While this step is totally optional, you can take your eye makeup look to the next level by lining your eyes—and no, you don’t need to have eyeliner! Use your palette’s darkest brown shade and an angled brush to line your upper and lower lash line. Feel free to smudge the shadow slightly for a sultry look.

Step #4: Apply mascara

Round out your eye makeup look by applying mascara.

Step #5: Grab your gloss

Almost done, just coat your lips with a layer of your pink gloss.

Makeup Look #4: Date Night

Whether it’s a first date or you’ve been together for years, a date night definitely calls for a new makeup look.

What you’ll need: Shaping stick, highlighter palette, eye shadow palette, mascara, lip gloss

Step #1: Contour it up

Use your shaping sticks to give yourself a beautifully contoured complexion. Grab a shade that’s one to two hues darker than your skin tone and apply to key areas in need of sculpting. Then, use a shade that matches your skin tone and apply it to any areas you didn’t already cover. Blend out both shades for a natural look.

Step #2: Add some color

Your complexion needs a little color, and blush is the perfect solution. Apply it on the apples of your cheeks, then complete your face makeup by sweeping highlighter onto the highpoints of your face.

Step #3: Grab your shadow

It’s time to do your eye makeup! For a date night, you want to keep things simple but defined. Start by applying a cream shade to your lid. Then, use the coral shade to define your crease for a fun yet subtle pop of color. To take the look up a notch, use a brown shade to line your upper and lower lash line.

Step #4: Coat your lashes

Reach for your mascara and give your lashes a few coats as a finishing touch for your eyes.

Step #5: Paint your pout

Pucker up and color your pout with your pink gloss.

Makeup Look #5: Work Appropriate

Of course, a polished makeup look for work is a must. Thankfully, you can also use these five makeup products to get workplace-ready!

What you’ll need: Shaping stick, highlighter palette, eye shadow palette, mascara, lip gloss

Step #1: Prep your face

Before topping your cheeks with blush, bronzer, and highlighter, you’ll want to give yourself an even complexion. Use a shaping stick in a shade that matches your skin tone to hide any blemishes and discoloration.

Step #2: Add dimension

It’s time to break out your highlighter palette. Take the bronzer shade and apply it to the hollows of your cheeks and temples for a subtle, contoured look. Then, create a naturally flushed look by applying the blush shade to your cheekbones.

Step #3: Define your eyes

It’s time to move onto your eye makeup—aka you’ll need your eye shadow palette. Apply a cream shade on your lid and a light brown shade in your crease for just enough definition without being too much for a workday. After that, brush on a coat of mascara and you’re done with your eyes!

Step #4: Grab your lip gloss

One last step, get ultra-glossy, pink lips with a little help from your lip gloss.
