When you know you'll be on the go from early morning until late in the evening, start the day more naturally than usual to maintain a fresher look.
Before you head out, apply light powder or foundation, swipe cheeks with a peachy or pale pink blush and then dab soft shimmer on the eyelids.
Bypass heavy eyeliner to avoid raccoon eyes once five o'clock rolls around. Instead, to achieve a wide-eyed look, curl eyelashes and follow with a quick swipe of mascara. Keep in mind, applying less during the day will help you keep a fresher face hours later.
Reach into your travel makeup kit and go for bold eyes by outlining lids with a dark shade and accenting inner or outer corners with a flirty color such as plum or emerald green for extra drama.
To camouflage tired eyes, touch up inner corners with a shimmer shade and lightly sweep it underneath the eyes as well. Don't forget to add a few extra swipes of mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
Finish your look by applying a beige bronzer to the cheekbones and a subtle gloss to the lips to balance out dramatic eyes. Slip into something comfortable and chic, and the night is yours.
Once the work day ends, use a Biore daily cleansing cloth for fruity, refreshing exfoliation. These individual, portable cloths pack easily and require no water or towel, leaving your face as clean as if you just woke up from a good night's sleep. Next, smooth on Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture
, which will moisten skin in preparation for your makeup transformation as well as provide great SPF 15 benefits.
