It’s that time of year again, work colleagues are getting out their whoopee cushions and thinking of new pranks to pull out of their sleeves. April Fool’s Day is a great excuse to have a little harmless fun. Unless of course you’re the butt of the joke! So in the spirit of things, let’s talk about some basic beauty tricks that will have people thinking the Beauty Fairy waved her magic wand.
Flutter those Falsies
False lashes are the perfect finishing touch to any makeup look and in my opinion are absolutely necessary when pulling off a smoky eye. Ardell has a fantastic range of lashes from natural individuals, to strip lashes to double up strip lashes. Ardell is my favorite brand, because the bands on the lashes are both thin and flexible. Making them a lot easier to apply and fit as close as possible to the natural lash line so no one will ever know you spent that extra 10 minutes in the bathroom mirror. Whether you’re looking for a little extra natural volume or some full on Glam, know you can work those lashes with confidence, and if anyone asks… Yes they are real!
Fake it, don’t bake it
Be a bronze goddess. Self- tanners are a great alternative to lying in the sun for hours and a lot safer too. Origins Faux Glow self-tanner for face gives a natural glorious glow to the skin without the sun’s ageing effects. For a full body effect, the Self- Tanning Gel for Face and Body by Shiseido is the go-to option. Its light texture means you can pretty much get dressed within a few minutes without the risk of streaks. Just make sure to exfoliate your face and body first, and moisturize any dry areas such as knees and elbows with a fragrance free moisturizer such as Precipitation from Origins.
Read my lips
Did you know that during a conversation the average person spends more than half the talk time looking at your lips? Pump up the volume in that pretty pout by using a lip plumper like the Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lip Volumizer. Its silky texture glides on so smoothly, leaving the lips with a minty cool sensation and subtle tint and shine. It can be worn alone or is a perfect base for any lip color. Try using a nude lip liner like Marvelous Moxie Liberated from Bare Minerals.
