5-Minute Makeup Tricks

5-Minute Holiday Hair and Makeup Tricks

Metallic Lids in Under a Minute

This season's shimmery eye shadows go way beyond silver and gold—colors such as copper, navy, and violet look cool and fresh and are easy to wear. Simply dust the color onto your lids and along your bottom lashes for a halo effect. The rest of your makeup should be toned-down—just add a coat of mascara, a dusting of blush, and a neutral lip color.

Concealer.Before re-upping your undereye coverage, be sure to dab on a bit of moisturizer or eye cream. It will keep color from becoming cakey.

An eyelash curler.Pumping up lashes perks up tired eyes, with or without a new coat of mascara.

Oil-absorbing sheets.Press one on your forehead, nose, and chin to degrease without destroying your makeup.

Highlighting cream or powder. Add a swipe on the cheekbones and brow bones to brighten skin.

Rosy Cream or Gel Blush. Smile wide and dab it on the apples of your cheeks. This one step alone will make you look ready to face the world.

Add a FeatherNo matter your hairstyle, adding a feathery clip or headband instantly dresses it up. Just get the position right: "Accessories look great when worn on the side of the head, close to the face,"

Warm Up Your Legs. No one will notice your killer dress-and-heels combo if you have dry, ashy legs. So go ahead, Moisturize and Highlight your sexy legs.
