THE 5-MINUTE FACE
Healthy-looking skin is the ultimate canvas. Your secret weapon? A great illuminator. “It can be added to foundation for a dewy finish or lightly dabbed on the high points of your face for an instant glow,” says Maybelline New York makeup director Nigel Stanislaus.
Your brows and eyes are a powerful team. “Curl your lashes and apply mascara, focusing on the middle lashes to create that starburst look,” says Stanislaus. “Keep lids clean or apply a subtle wash of nude eyeshadow, and groom your brows to create structure.” With a bold brow, apply a little concealer to the inner corner of the eyes and the side of the nose to bring focus to your eye look.
The royal flush
Dramatic contouring has had its day – blush is back. “Layer bronzer on top of your blush for subtle definition,” Stanislaus advises. “Constantly step back from the mirror and assess the level of definition. You’re after a slightly sun-kissed look.”
