We love to experiment with new beauty styles (and encourage others to do so too), but there’s something to be said about developing a signature makeup look—your go-to face that works with everything. You’ll always look amazing and save a lot of time and money while doing so!
Before you create a new signature look or tweak your existing one, consider the following:
Lifestyle. Where do you spend your day and what are you wearing? What is appropriate for your workplace/school/community? What reflects your personality? How much maintenance (if any) does your look require?
Comfort Level. Think about the makeup you can’t live without. Do you feel naked without your perfectly winged liner? Are there at least 4 different lip colours in your bag? Do you sculpt your cheeks to perfection before going to the grocery store? Figure out what you feel comfortable in that is also appropriate for you lifestyle.
Time. Do you need 2 minutes to apply foundation, blush and mascara, 5 mins for 5-6 products, or 10 minutes for your primed, perfected and polished visage?
Get your look together with these steps:
Hone your craft.

Find products that work for your skin type and skin tone.
The only way to see how makeup looks, feels and lasts is through a little trial and error. Go to your favourite makeup counter and ask a salesperson for guidance and a sample! Do a little research online or talk to your friends–there is no lack of information out there, just consider the source! But don’t go over your budget, there are plenty of great products at every price point.
Get it together.
Once you have locked in on your look, get organised and streamline your routine. There’s no need to waste time looking for your products. Just have them lined up and ready to go!
