When you’ve got no plans to leave the house, your instinct might be to forego a makeup routine. But putting effort into your appearance and giving yourself some TLC might just boost your confidence and help stimulate overall personal motivation—even if no one sees you but you. So, with an edit of easy-to-use, hybrid products that require almost zero skill to apply, let's establish your new at-home makeup routine!
Start with a dewy, multi-purpose BB cream all over skin, instead of foundation. These hybrids of skincare and makeup are the perfect in-between, complexion-perfecting option, and you can just rub them on like moisturiser with your fingers. The effect will be like your natural skin, only brighter, smoother, more hydrated and more even.
Add a kiss-of-color with a flattering-yet-natural-looking tinted lip balm. Baby Lips Lip Balm moisturises lips for a full eight hours leaving your pout visibly renewed after one week! Plus, it’s available in clear, a sheer-cherry tint, and Pink Punch, a translucent cool-pink flush. No need to look in a mirror or anything, just swipe on like lip balm and let it do its magic.
So seamless, so natural—so hard to get wrong! A little pop of fresh, flattering color to cheeks will make a huge difference, so don’t skip this step. You’ll thank yourself later when you catch sight of your glowing, pretty self in your toaster reflection. Again, ease of use is paramount here. Just smile, dab a tiny bit of gel blush on the apples of each cheek (a little goes a long way) and blend in with fingers. Voila!
Here’s where you might say, Maybelline, get ahold of yourself! There’s no way I’m putting on eye shadow today! But—a little of this creamy nude eyeshadow on the lid is swipe-on easy and brightens up the entire eye area. You’ll be amazed at the subtle but noticeable results: fresh-faced, awake and more polished overall. It’s a beauty editor secret to looking amazing but not like you’re wearing any makeup.
Have you ever tried our super-skinny liner? It’s total magic. It’s skip-proof and glide-on easy, and just traced along the upper lash line, makes you look like you grew an extra set of eyelashes, as opposed to looking like you have eyeliner on. Try it. You will never want to go without it again.
Time to play with makeup! Now that you’ve got a glowy, natural look going on that’s also camera-friendly, fire up your phone or tablet or computer and go to our virtual makeup hub. Here you can click and try on literally every single product and every single shade in our lineup, from major liquid liner to lip gloss to foundation. We even have a virtual eyebrows hub that lets you experiment with new arch styles, from thick and natural to bold and sculptural. Snap some selfies, have some fun! No need to wash your face off after.
