While the past year has made some of us alter our makeup routines by cutting down on products and opting for more natural looks, it’s also given us the freedom to experiment with our makeup. The truth is, for beauty lovers, makeup can be therapy, and an outlet for some much needed “me time.”
That was the case for influencer Doralys Britto. Despite being at home more than ever, she wanted to wear makeup as a way to express her creativity. While she was still wearing makeup just as often as before, the time at home led her to experiment with her products.
“The pandemic definitely gave me an opportunity to tune in with myself and use my favorite products in a more creative and versatile way,” she says. “I started using products that were meant for one thing and applying them to other parts of my face.”
It was during this experimentation that she discovered that her favorite lipstick could be used in multiple ways in order to get effortless, quick and beautiful monochromatic makeup looks. Rather than reaching for several different products to create a look with a uniform color palette, Doralys found that her L'Oréal Paris lipstick was all she really needed.
“I love my L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Les Nus Intense Nude Lipstick. I use it on my lips, but I also started using it on my cheeks and nose for my natural ‘signature’ sun-kissed look,” she says. “I also love applying it on my eyelids for a romantic vibe and a pop of color.”
The Les Nus lipsticks are non-drying, smooth in texture and ultra pigmented, making them perfect for application in multiple areas of the face. Follow these three simple steps to shake up your makeup and turn your new favorite lipstick into a multitasking beauty must-have.
Start by lightly patting the lipstick straight onto your eyelids, building up the color until you’re satisfied with the payoff. Then, using an eyeshadow brush, blend the color into your crease until the outer edge looks smooth and diffused, leaving you with a simple, one-and-done eyeshadow look.
To add color to your cheeks, apply the lipstick from the tip and blend in circular motions with your fingers or a damp makeup sponge like the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender. Start at the apples of your cheeks and blend upward towards your temples for a lifted look.
A trick to make your makeup appear more cohesive is to apply a bit of your blush color to the bridge of your nose to more evenly distribute color throughout your face. Using your fingers or a sponge, tap on a small bit of the lipstick on the bridge of your nose and blend out until you have a natural-looking radiant finish.
