Brunch, errands, or trips to the beach—whatever your weekend plans, your off-duty ensemble still deserves a touch of glamour. Proving that low-stress can be oh-so stunning, Our April Look is all about elevating your everyday through easy-yet-impactful touches.
The easiest way to add glamour to an everyday look? A bold lip. More laid-back than bright red, a wine-stained pout is perfect when paired with barely-there makeup. We used two different colors to create this dark, bordeaux lip with an ombré effect. Start with the darker hue, then dab the lighter shade onto the center of the lips.
Since lips are the focal point of this look, we kept the base barely-there and matte. We chose BECCA’s Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème for it’s full-coverage, breathable finish. The lightweight cream melts on like a second skin and stays put all day for a flawless, airbrushed look.
To subtly contour the cheek, we used TRÈSTIQUE’s Color & Contour Bronzer Stick. The silky-smooth formula makes emphasizing your assets a breeze, even for contouring newbies.
To bring balance and light to the face, we set this look with Kevyn Aucoin’s Neo Setting Powder. We’re obsessed with the versatility of this formula—whether you want a satin, matte or shimmery finish, this one powder offers all three.
To give eyes an effortless look, we kept brows and lashes immaculately sleek, but not too strong. We used ILLAMASQUA’s, clear, multi-tasking formula to create subtle definition and structure.
Lastly, we used Studio 10’s double-sided I-Lift Longwear Linewear to define and brighten the eyes. We love Studio 10’s skincare-infused formulas, since they flatter every age and skin type.
We finished the look with super textured, second-day hair. Our go-to for creating that “I-barely-tried-but-still-look-amazing” look is Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray. Part dry shampoo, part texturizer, it soaks up oil while giving hair a “just-rolled-out-of-bed” texture.
During your time away from work, you should be relaxing—not stressing about what to wear. That’s why we love the versatility of this easy, casual look. Whether you dress it up or down, you’ll look chic and be ready for anything.
