There are certainly occasions to let loose and go for the avant-garde look seen on the runway. But real talk — for us busy women trying to balance it all, sometimes it’s best to stick with a classic look that’s not only gorgeous, but also easy to achieve quickly on your own.
Makeup.com has partnered with L'Oréal Paris and Walgreens to bring you three looks that are anything but boring, yet simple enough to recreate at home on a regular basis.
Look #1: 10 Minutes to Effortless Beauty
That whole “I woke up like this” concept — we’ve got you covered. A harmonious combination of skin, makeup and hair products coming together for a 10-minute routine, this look could be your new staple.
Let your eyes take center stage and make a statement with your lashes. Keep your hair and skin more subdued for a balanced look. It is always best to pick a focus and not try to highlight everything at once.
Look #3: Hair 101: Create Soft, Luscious Locks With a Touch of Volume
And then there are the days to give your hair the life and volume it so deserves! Again, keeping all of the elements of your beauty routine in balance, this look is light on makeup and skin, but big on hair. Boost it, and lock it.
6. Blow dry hair upside down or upright while fluffing it with your hands. Blow dry until damp (but not completely dry).
7. Using a round brush, blow dry the hair in sections, starting from the root and working to the ends (this allows for a smoother blowout). Quick Tip: For maximum volume, blow dry the section in the opposite direction.
