Five Minute Makeup Looks

A great makeup kit allows you to put together a multitude of looks in an instant. Day to night, desk to dinner, having the right tools on hand means you’re always prepared. Our NEW Pretty in a Snap Autumn Collection has been curated to give you precisely that amount of beauty freedom, encompassing everything from the perfect nude lip to the most vibrant of jewel-toned eyeliners, right through to a perfecting skin finish to suit every complexion. While we encourage you to experiment and play with makeup to discover your perfect look, with so many options it can be difficult to know where to begin. Here are our top three five minute makeup looks using our the Autumn ‘18 colour collection to get you started.

Makeup Look 1. Au Naturale

This simple daytime look is all about enhancing your natural beauty - think your skin, only better. Once you’ve applied your base, using the Snap Happy Makeup Kit, lightly dust the PureMatte Finish Powder down the center of your face to mattify your T-zone, combatting shine but keeping the rest of your complexion looking fresh and dewy. Use a blush brush to apply the Whisper PurePressed Blush to the apples of the cheeks to lift the complexion - this blush is flecked with light reflecting particles to give the skin a subtle, radiant glow. Use a fluffy blending brush to sweep the shimmering peach shade from the Brown Sugar Eye Shadow trio over your entire eyelid to brighten the eye area, then finish your look with a slick of PureMoist Lipstick in Tricia.

Makeup Look 2. Vintage Vamp

For a timeless, vampy evening look, dust your Whisper PurePressed Blush up towards the temples, rather than sticking to the apples of the cheeks, to create a subtle contour. Apply a wash of shimmering peach to the eyelids, then add the warm brown shade from the Brown Sugar Eye Shadow Triple to the outer two thirds of the eyelid. Use a small tapered makeup brush to work the deeper eggplant hue through the crease of the eyelid to add depth, then run the same shade along the upper and lower lash lines to create a quick smoky eye. No vintage vamp look is complete without a wine stained pout, so pull your look together using the Lip Fixation Lip Stain in the new shade Content. To create the illusion of a fuller pout, only apply the clear gloss to the very center of the lips - this will catch the light and make your lips look plumper!

Makeup Look 3. Disco Diva

This look will have you embracing vibrant colour in five minutes flat. Create a flawless base using the PureMatte Finish Powder and Whisper PurePressed Blush, then turn your attention to the eye area. New to colour? Choose between the NEW Emerald and Sapphire Mystikol Eyeliners (don’t let your eye colour or skin tone dictate which colour you choose - there are no longer any rules when it comes to colour!) and use the Mystikol brush (inside the lid) to drag the colour along both the upper and lower lashes. Feeling brave? Line your upper lashes with one colour and your lower lashes with the other! For those who really want to bring out their inner 70s disco diva, apply the liner as you would a cream eye shadow - use your finger or a flat eye shadow brush to sweep the colour along your eyelid for a serious pop of colour. As with any bright eye look, it’s best to keep the focus in one place so opt for a nude lip colour. With this look, we love the PureMoist Lipstick in Jamie.
