makeuptips-:

Playing with makeup is great fun, there’s nothing like having a buffet full of eyeshadows, lipsticks, blushes and eyeliners that you can get creative with, but it’s important you also remember the more serious stuff like removing it all at the end of the day.

Why do you need to Remove your Makeup

Whether you choose to breakup your makeup with a cleansing oil or start the first step in your cleansing routine with a makeup wipe is up to you, but one things for sure: removing your makeup is an essential step that shouldn’t be ditched. Need convincing?

12 One-Minute Makeovers
Hot date after work? No need for a complete overhaul. Here are twelve totally different ways to change your look in sixty seconds flat.
Try the Radiant, Dewy Look
Skin with a touch of sheen always looks fresh and healthy. Fake a flawless face with BB Cream. It hydrates like your favorite moisturizer and evens out your complexion like a light-coverage foundation. Make it look even more natural and apply it with a stippling brush for a luminous, airbrushed finish.
Try: Olay Fresh Effect {BB Cream!} Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen. It covers minor imperfections and blotches while hydrating skin for a full 24 hours. 
Amp Up Your Arches
Don’t underestimate the effect your eyebrows have on your face. A pair of polished power brows is every girl’s BBF—beauty best friend and one of the easiest ways to change your look. Make sure your set makes a strong statement by filling in sparse spaces with a few strokes of pencil, then top them off with dark tinted eyebrow gel to set stray strands in place.
Energize Your Eyes
Give your gaze a quick pick-me-up with a hydrating eye cream that diminishes the appearance of dark circles and wrinkles, topped off with an undereye concealer that’s a shade lighter than your complexion. (The combination of the two helps you easily fake a full night’s sleep and look much more awake.)
Try: Olay Fresh Effects {Bright On Schedule!} Eye Awakening Cream. The tri-rollerball applicator massages the skin with a soothing, cooling treatment that instantly de-puffs and reduces the look of dark circles.
Illuminate Your Face
Add a glowy dimension to your skin with a liquid luminizer. Swipe it on your face in three places to make a serious impact: Underneath the eyes to create a soft-focus effect over wrinkles and dark circles; down the center of your nose to give it a slimmed illusion; and on the Cupid’s bow just above your lips to make them more pronounced. (Pro tip: Use your fingertips to blend the highlighter in so it doesn’t look streaky.)
Lengthen Your Locks
Nothing says “new you” like a totally different ‘do. Change your look by faking a longer, fuller mane—or even a fringe—in a flash with a set of clip-in hair extensions. Just make sure they match your hair color and texture to a T so they’ll blend in with your natural hair and actually look believable.
Move Your Part
Chances are you’ve gotten into the habit of parting your strands in the exact same place every single day. Here’s one of the quickest ways to change your look: Simply switch it to the other side. Flipping your hair over the other way frames your face differently and actually makes a world of difference with your overall appearance.
Punch Up Your Pout
Swiping a bold shade across your smile is the quickest way to perk up your face. A blue-based cherry red is the obvious choice (and universally flattering on all complexions), but if that feels a tad too intimidating for you, make a subtle statement with fuchsia or a tangerine-color stain.
 Try Orange Blush
Pink tends to be the go-to hue, so shake things up and try a warmer shade like apricot, carrot or melon for a beautifully burnished look. Be sure to use a cream formulation—it blends right into the apples of your cheeks and gives you a fabulous faux flush-from-within.
 Lash Out
There’s no need to fumble with falsies to achieve a dramatic lush lash look. To quickly create that false eyelash effect, just apply two coats of volumizing mascara all the way through your lashes to thicken and curl, immediately followed by two coats of a lengthening formulation, concentrating just on the tips.
Get Glowing
Instead of visiting a tanning salon for a faux glow, just do it yourself. Mixing a teaspoon of loose shimmer powder into your body lotion gives your skin a temporary (but quick!) beautiful bronzy boost.
Try: Olay Quench Body Lotion Shimmer. Skip a step with this rich moisturizer; formulated with cocoa butter and vitamin B3, it leaves you with supple skin and all the gleam you need.
Glitz Up Your Nails
Applying four full coats of polish (base, two color and a top) can take up to an hour to completely dry. Give yourself a quick and easy “minute manicure” with just a glittery topcoat. Swiping a sparkly metallic shade across your tips saves a significant amount of drying time while dressing up your digits.
Pump Up the Volume
Want to look 5 pounds thinner without hitting the gym? Switch up your hairstyle. Pull your strands back into a low, taut bun, then tease your roots at the hairline. The voluminous boost slims your face and accentuates your features.
