How to: Quick everyday makeup

Review of new Lavera’s  Trend Sensitive line

I know that many women today want to take care of their image, but usually they don’t have enough time for a complete make-up. Think about busy mums, business woman always on the run,…Today, I’m going to share with you some quick tips to make you look fresh, natural and awake. Recently, I’ve tried some products from the new Lavera Trend sensitive collection and I want to take this opportunity to connect everything together.

 

For a quick but perfect everyday look, you need:

Liquid foundation (and foundation brush or makeup sponge)

Eye liner (brown or black)

Mascara

Lipstick (in a fresh creamy or sheer finish)

 

1.step: Liquid foundation with a medium coverage and dewy finish

After having done your everyday skin care routine, that should consist of cleansing and moisturizing your face, start with the application of a liquid foundation. To get the healthy glow, apply liquid foundation with a foundation brush. I’d suggest Lavera liquid foundation because of its good coverage and dewy look. It comes in 4 shades: Porcelain, Ivory, Honey and Almond. On the picture there are just 3 shades (without Honey). Porcelain is a light warm tone for light skin. Ivory is a slightly darker shade with a cool undertone. Almond is their darkest shade in a warm undertone, suitable for medium skin tone. You can mix together very well these shades, if needed. I only miss one or two dark shades. Otherwise, the coverage is medium and it covers good any imperfections. You have to work quickly when applying the foundation, cause it sets and dry quickly. In my opinion, I would not use a powder to set, unless the skin is very oily. I like this foundation because of its light texture and a natural healthy finish that it gives to your skin, thanks to organic nourishing oils and vitamins.

2.step: Line and smudge the eyes

To enhance your eyes, line your upper lash line with a brown or black Lavera soft eyeliner. It glides perfectly on the skin and you can draw a precise and thin line, if you want. Use the brown shade for the day look, cause it’s more natural and blend it with the included sponge applicator. You will get a soft line and defined eyes. When drawing the line, you don’t need to be very precise, cause you will smudge it anyway. The Lavera soft eyeliner comes in 3 colors: black, brown and gray.

3.step: Lots of mascara

If you want, curl your eyelashes and then apply a few coats of mascara. I have used Lavera Intense Volumizing mascara in black. The positive side is that the mascara wand is very precise, it separates the lashes very well, but I couldn’t say it is volumizing. It’s a nice mascara for someone who wants a natural look, but if you search volume & tons of black, this mascara, honestly, won’t satisfy your needs.

4. step: The right touch of color on the lips is the key

We’re already at the end. The only thing missing is the color. This is a quick makeup, so we want a quick solution. The key is to use a creamy lipstick with a hint of color. Avoid deep berries, deep browns, beige or reds. Instead, choose natural peachy, apricot or rosy colors, that will bring you back the color on your face and enhance it. Lavera lipstick n.2 (peach amber) is a peachy warm shade with a matte and creamy texture, ideal for the day look. It is long-lasting and quite hydrating. If you want, apply on top just a touch of gloss. You can also wear the lipstick by just tapping it onto the lips and even blend it slightly on the apples of the cheeks to get the natural flush.

As you can see, you need just a few products … and no excuses not to always look gorgeous!

When you look better, you’ll feel better about yourself, too!
