Tuesday New Year Party 10 Minute Makeup Routine


Tuesday New Year Party 10 Minute Makeup RoutineDuring the hustle and bustle of the holidays, you may not have tons of time to put on makeup, especially if you’re a busy mom. However, if you have at least 10 minutes to spare, you can look beautifully fresh-faced and ready to take on the day. Yes, you can look great in less than 10 minutesReema Khan, CEO of s.h.a.p.e.s. Brow Bar, shows you her “go-to” tips for a speedy makeup routine. Here is Reema’s 10 minute makeup tutorial — there are only 4 steps. What’s the key to this 10 minute makeup routine? Well-shaped eyebrows!

Step1: Frame the face with well-shaped eyebrows. When eyebrows are properly groomed (threaded*, waxed or plucked), eyes will pop naturally without any need for eye shadow. Make sure that brows are not too thin and fill them in with a touch of brow powder for maximum effect. NOTE: Make the front of your eyebrows a bit darker than the rest in order to give the illusion of a smaller nose.

Step 2: Use a pressed foundation powder for a quick, even application without mess to create a fresh look.

Step 3: Curl eyelashes before applying mascara in order to ensure that mascara goes on evenly and you can get away with a single application. Again, framing the eyes properly is key to a polished look.

Step 4: Finish with a quick application of blush and lip gloss, remembering that less is more! If you over-apply on this step, you will lose the fresh-faced, natural effect.

*Benefits of Threading Your Eyebrows:

  • With threading, you are able to pluck one hair at a time if necessary, ensuring complete precision.
  • Threading is known to be significantly less painful and irritating on the skin. It is an effective treatment for those who use Retin-A or other acne products, and therefore cannot wax.
  • The process of threading uproots the hair, making for longer lasting results than tweezing or waxing.
  • Over time, waxing can make the skin begin to sag. With threading, only the direct hair is removed, keeping your delicate skin smooth and wrinkle-free!
