    Shoo away shiny skin

    Using a matte powder is a great way to absorb the shine in your skin, and it’ll cover up any blemishes you may wanna hide. It’s super easy to apply, so no one will even notice that you’ve put in the effort to make your skin look so perfect.

    Cheery cheekbones

    When choosing your blush, pick a color that’s close to your natural flush for the smoothest look. Add just a little bit of shine with a shimmery cream blush and blend it into your cheek bones with your fingers for a look that will have your friends begging for your beauty secrets.

    Mask your mascara

    Mascara that’s been opened for more than three months can form clumps, so toss it out if you’re going for a natural look. Make sure to curl your eyelashes before moving on to applying your mascara. Start with the wand at the root of your lashes and gently wiggle the brush back and forth as you go toward the tips for smooth and flirty lashes.

    Fun, flirty eyes

    Stick with nudes and natural colors on your lids for everyday wear–something close to your skin tone works best. Try a cream shadow that you can smear across your eyelids effortlessly to make your eyes pop without making it too obvious that you’re wearing shadow

    Touch of lip balm

    Don’t even think about leaving your house without a little splash of color on your lips! If you’re putting on balm anyway, choose a tinted one for some extra sparkle. Your lips will be smooth, shiny and colorful, all without any extra effort on your part.
