Step 1: Generously apply sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 35, tinted moisturizer, and bronzer. Don’t forget to reapply sunscreen throughout the day.
Step 2: Play up those lashes with some fabulous waterproof mascara and even a little eyeliner.
Step 3: To take your look to the next level, add a swipe of gold shimmer eyeshadow across your lids or a bright summer gloss.
Woke Up Late
Step 1: Apply moisturizer evenly across your face with your fingers or a foundation brush and follow with cream blush to the apples of your cheeks for a pop of color. This will brighten your whole face and make you appear awake.
Step 2: Quickly curl your lashes and then swipe on two coats of volumizing mascara. If you have time, use a pencil to define your brows. Filling in your brows can help make you look neat and pulled together.
Step 3: Apply lip gloss.
Step 1: Apply primer which offers protection, evens out skin tone, and does a great job resisting heat. Top it off with a golden mineral powder for a natural finish that will keep you from looking oily. Apply blush using your clean two middle fingers. Smile and apply the blush to the apples of the cheeks and blend the color backward.
Step 2: When pressed for time and in a sticky situation, opt for liquid waterproof liner that won’t run. The best way to apply is by gently stretching your eyelid at the outer corner so it’s taut. Start your line at your inner corner and stay as close to your lashes as possible. Instead of drawing one straight, create a few dashes. Then try to connect them. With practice, you’ll eventually be able to apply it in one quick swipe.
Step 3: Finish your look off with a red lip. I chose Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Live It Up because it is very creamy and a great red for all skin tones.

Step 1: Apply foundation on your skin, following with concealer over any blemishes or dark circles.
Step 2: Prime your lid by patting on foundation to form a base for your makeup to stick to.
Step 3: Recreating a smoky eye is easiest with a multitonal eye-shadow palette. Rub the softest color in your palette above the creases and up to the brow bones to highlight. Sweep the light, pearly shadow around the inner corners of your eyes to make them seem larger. You can even dust a little of this shade under your lower lashes to offset dark circles. Next, dip the tip of a dampened makeup brush into the darkest shadow, and draw a line across your upper and lower lash lines as well as your crease. Smudge it with your finger, a brush, or a cotton swab for a blurred effect. Trace on one last layer of the darkest color as liner and smudge as well.
