Whether you had a long day at work or are feeling a bit under the weather, sometimes you simply don't feel like wearing layers of makeup when stepping out for a night on the town. However, you also may not want to leave the house looking like you just woke up from a 3-day nap.
Luckily, you don't need loads of products to create a glamorous look, as long as you are armed with a few essentials - blush, sheer shadow, mascara and lipstick.
First, apply a warm, slightly shimmery blush to your cheeks - it's a simple way to quickly perk up your complexion.
Next, emphasize your eyes with a bit of nude-colored shadow and lots of black mascara. Because you won't be wearing layers of eye makeup, it's imperative to apply the mascara flawlessly as any imperfections will be especially noticeable.
For an impeccable application, O Magazine recommends laying a makeup mirror flat on the surface in front of you so that you are looking down as you coat your lashes.
Finally, for the "wow factor," paint your pout with a bright-colored lipstick. The bold hue will immediately create a glamorous appearance and you'll turn heads without having to apply more than four products!
