What’s the difference between foundation and concealer? It’s easy to get confused by the terminology. But there is a different purpose for both products. Foundation is used to cover up imperfections on your skin and even out your complexion. Concealer is used to cover up blemishes, redness around the nose or any other discoloration on your face. It should be applied after foundation to blend in with your base layer of makeup.

Here are some tips on how much product you should apply and where:

Foundation: For best results, start with a clean face and apply moisturizer (if needed). Then use a foundation brush or sponge to apply makeup over your entire face. If you only need light coverage, you just want enough product so that it blends in with your skin tone without looking cakey!

Busy women who don’t have time for makeup but want to look professional and casual chic can use these simple tips and techniques to do their makeup. These tips are great for women on the go who don’t have time to spend in front of a mirror every day.

The key to this look is soft, natural colors. Makeup shouldn’t be obvious, so the colors you use should look like they’re part of your skin tone. You want your makeup to enhance your natural beauty, not cover it up.

First, start with a clean face. Then apply foundation or tinted moisturizer that matches your skin tone exactly. Make sure you blend it in well with a sponge or brush so there are no lines where the product meets your skin. Then set with powder or loose powder so the foundation doesn’t get oily throughout the day and start to look cakey.

Next, apply a little blush using a big fluffy brush for all-over color that looks natural. Again, you want the color to look like it’s part of your skin, so choose a color similar to the natural blush in your cheeks when you’re flushed or embarrassed (not too bright).

On eyes, use a neutral eye shadow like cream or taupe all over and then

The idea of casual-chic makeup is great. You can go from day to night, or office to happy hour, without too much fuss. It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s low-maintenance, and you don’t need to bring a ton of makeup products with you when you’re on the go.

There are a few tricks of the trade for mastering this type of makeup look.

First, you’ll want to pick one feature that will stand out — your lips or your eyes, not both. The other half of your face should be quite natural; that way, the features that are accented will really pop. With lips and eyes as bold as these ones are, the rest of your face needs to be understated and quiet.

If you’re going to accentuate your lips, go with a neutral eye look. I’m using my Naked 3 Palette here (as usual), and I concentrated most of the color on my eyelid with “Strange” and “Nooner.” I blended out “Limit” into my crease and applied “Blackheart” very lightly in my outer crease. I also lined my upper lash line with “Blackheart,” but this is definitely an optional step — consider it an extra boost

If you’re a busy woman who doesn’t have time to spend an hour on your makeup every morning, this blog is for you! We’ll be offering tips and tricks to help you get ready quickly – and look fabulous doing it.

Here’s the thing about being a busy woman: no matter if you’re a business executive, a single mom or a college student, your daily routine is probably jam-packed. Whether you’re running around town to meet with clients, taking care of kids or going to class all day, it can be hard to find time to do everything on your to-do list. And that includes finding time for a little beauty maintenance!

But don’t worry. We’ve got some makeup tips and tricks that will help you apply makeup in just minutes. So check out these three different ways to wear makeup when you’re running low on time.

The Five Minute Face

If you only have five minutes to apply makeup, stick with the basics. Dab on some tinted moisturizer, add concealer where needed, swipe on mascara and reach for a neutral lip gloss or balm. This is a great look for those mornings when you wake up late (and still look tired). And because the products are easy to apply and quick to blend, this look takes less than five minutes from start to finish!

I have been wearing makeup for a long time but I have always struggled to find a routine that works for me. I feel like I am always rushing in the mornings and don’t have time to do my makeup properly. I also tend to go straight from work to social events, so having a set of day and night looks would be perfect for me.

How to Makeup for work in the morning and an event after work? Is it possible to maintain that professional look without looking like a clown? It’s certainly possible. Whether you want to change up your look completely or just add some color, here are a few tips on how to make a transition from day-time makeup to evening makeup.

When you’re planning your makeover, keep in mind that you don’t have to spend hours in front of the mirror. Unless you have an extensive makeup collection and unlimited time, there are only a few things you can do at work to transform your look for the night.

1. Start with a clean face and apply moisturizer

2. Apply primer all over your face
