Give Yourself a 1-Minute Makeover!
1. Get Stained
Intimidated by deep lip colors? For a more subtle statement, apply three coats of lipstick (like Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in Romantic, $30; chanel.com), then blot it with a tissue to lighten the texture.
2. Darken Your Arches
Take a cue from Scarlett Johansson and frame your face with strong brows. Accentuate their color and texture with brown mascara (like Paula Dorf mascara in Chocolate, $20; pauladorf.com): Sweep upward and then in the direction of your temples.
3. Dress Up Your Pony
With a ribbon fastened at the base (M&J Trimming grosgrain ribbon, $2/yard; mjtrim.com), take any tail from ho-hum to high fashion. We were inspired by the look at a recent Givenchy show.
4. Add Volume Strategically
Using a fine-tooth comb (J and D Pastel tail comb, $1; sallybeauty.com), tease sides to make a long face appear fuller, or increase the height at the crown to slim a round face.
5. Fake Flawless Skin
A light dusting of translucent powder (like Cover Girl Professional loose powder in Translucent Medium, $5; drugstore.com) before your foundation helps to hide pores and fine lines for a smoother-looking canvas.
