Expert Makeup Tips For The On-The-Go Girl

by The Zoe Report

The fall season is sure to find you hustling from one chic event to the next, but will your makeup stay in place? LA’s team of experts from Blushington (think a blow dry bar, for beauty) is here to ensure that it does with day-to-night pointers, on-the-go essentials and their fall beauty faves!

How to take a daytime, office-appropriate makeup look into night…

“To change a daytime look to nighttime, add black liner to your upper and lower water line, then gently smudge the applied liner across the rim of your eye. Next, add an additional coat of mascara, and a pop of color on your lip. If you aren’t a girl who is into bold or bright lip colors, opt for a really pigmented nude. Either way, with adding a lip, you will achieve a polished and finished look.”

The best way to remove your makeup when “resetting” your face between the office and happy hour…

Embryolisse. The product acts as a moisturizer as well as a remover. This will give your skin a glow, instead of drying it out, like other removers may do.”

The Blushington-tested strategy for making makeup last from day to night (essential for fashion week!)…

“If you have normal skin use Stila’s Stay All Day 10-1 HD Beauty Balm, this will help the longevity of your makeup while giving your skin benefits. If you have oily skin opt for the BECCA Ever-Matte Priming Perfector, this will help your skin remain matte through the entire day. No matter what skin type you have, always use Model In A Bottle setting spray! This product will keep your makeup on all day long, through the shows and after-parties.”

Secret weapons you should always have in your bag for on-the-go touch-ups…

“A multi-purpose cream blush. You can dab on your cheeks and lips and look fresh faced. Also a mini tinted moisturizer. so you can dab some on and look glowing in no time. Tinted moisturizer is a great under eye concealer too; an easy touch-up to refresh your under eye.”

Blushington’s favorite fall beauty trend…

“We’re obsessed with the darker plum lips with a bit of an ombré effect! Also, we love the all-around color for eyes, by using a purple or blue shadow, then mascara, and finishing it off with liner, all in same color but different tones—amazing.”
