Sexy Makeup You Can Do in Your Car
Are your mornings so crazed that you usually put your makeup on using your rear-view mirror? Here are the best looks to do in your (hopefully parked) car
Focus your makeup away from your imperfections"Redirect your feature focus," says Bowyer. If you have a zit on your forehead, draw attention to a bright lip, or if you have one near your mouth, go heavier on your eyes. Don't shy away from wearing bold makeup in the office, which Procter & Gamble scientist Sarah Vickery says can "give a powerful, 'I'm in charge here' kind of impression."
If you want to focus on your lips, try a deep lip color like MAC Lipstick in Sheer Plum, $15.
If you want to draw attention to your eyes, you only need three products to do an amazing smoky eye on-the-go: mascara, dark eyeliner pencil, and dark eyeshadow.
Apply mascara first, which frames the eye instantly. Scribble the pencil from your upper lashline to the crease, and blend it out for a smooth finish. You're using the pencil as a base for the smoky eye. Then tap your eyeshadow on top of the pencil to set it. Prior recommends using a brown, bronze, or charcoal color. "But as long as you're using a color that's deeper than your skin tone, you'll get definition and drama," she says.
Expert tip: Brush powder over your lips before applying lipstick. That way the color will last longer and won't bleed -- even without a lipliner, says Prior.
