How to Look Like a Bombshell Babe in 10-min or Less
Looking like a bombshell babe does NOT need to take you hours upon hours to get the look you want. What if I told you that you could look fierce, fabulous, and fun in as little as 10-mins or less. Would you be intrigued?
I hope you're saying, HELL YES!
Listen I totally get it. You're busier than a mutha, you're a #bossbabe, and you have a million and one things to do with probably a toddler tugging at your legs wanting something.
Been there and done that!
However, my one guilty pleasure when life gets to be too overwhelming and I want to feel confident AF is to do my damn makeup and look like a freaking bomb ass babe!
The best part is since I'm a mother hustler, I don't have hours to do my makeup which is why I'm going to share with you how I look like a BOMBSHELL babe in 10-min or less.
Ready to flip the switch from and go from frumpy to fabulous? Let's do this!
You've heard me say it before and I'll repeat it again, your skin care routine is vital to having beautiful skin. Don't believe me, feel free to check out my related blog post: 3 Reasons Why Skincare Routine is so Important!
But seriously yo', having a bombshell look starts with amazing skin and you can't have beautiful flawless looking skin without a skincare regiment that works for your skin to turn back the hands of time.
Now I completely understand if you can't shell out hundreds of dollars every quarter for premium skincare, but I do recommend that you get a top of the line product such as Rodan & Fields and at minimum have a cleanser and moisturizer as part of your regimen.
Could you have more products as supplements? Absolutely, but if you're on a budget but want premium skin care that WORKS, then at the very least have a cleanser and moisturizer to help your skin improve over time.
For the love of Pete, do NOT, and I mean do NOT use SOAP on your face. Soap will clog your pores, cause breakouts, and break down the natural elasticity of your skin which will cause aging faster. Yuck!
Hello, we want to look like we're 30 going on 13, right? Errrr, I mean maybe!
Side note, a little shameless plug, if you want a sample of the #1 skincare on the market right now which is Rodan & Fields, email me and I'll personally send you a sample at email@example.com.
Did you know that foundation is not actually considered makeup?
Foundation is an extension of your skincare routine!
Is your mind completely blown right now? If not, it should be!
Why is foundation not considered makeup and is part of your skincare?
Well, for starters foundation helps block free radicals and protects your face from environmental damage. You can either wear protection or pollution. Which would you prefer?
I choose protection!
Look at it this way. Think of two barns where one is painted, and the other isn't. What happens 5-10 years down the road? One is protected and doesn't look run down, old, or time-tested and the other needs a complete overhaul.
Point being, your face needs a protective barrier, aka foundation, just like the barn does.
Of course, it has other added benefits such as providing a flawless look, reduce redness, hide blemishes or dark spots. Which we all adore it for those reasons too, right?
However, your foundation is not makeup like a lipstick it truly is that important to have on and wear daily. Find one that will work for your skin type, remove it daily before bed as part of your routine, and make sure you match the foundation correctly. No one likes it when you look like Casper the ghost or like you have a mask on from the shade being too dark. Of course, when in doubt blend it out.
Don't forget that there are a variety of foundations that you choose from too. Try them out and find one you LOVE! I mean there's mineral based, cream to powder, liquid, and more. Do your research, test them out, and find the one that works best for you. Your skin will thank you for it!
Alright, moving on to your beautiful peepers! Now I'm all for a dramatic look, but when the time is tight, it's legit ok to use something that's quick, easy, but fabulous. Like cream to powder eyeshadow!
You can find a cream to powder eyeshadow through your local Department store at their beauty counter, with various Direct Sales/Multi-Level Marketing companies, as well as Wal-mart or Target.
This eyeshadow is the bomb! So, simple but elegant. You can find some brands with a matte finish or some with glitter for a little extra pop on your eyelids.
The beauty of this eyeshadow is that you don't need a makeup brush to put it on, but you can if you wish. All you need to do is put some on your ring finger. Yes, the ring finger because it's the weakest finger on your hand to use on the most delicate area of your face and slowly swipe the shadow on your eyelid.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
If you'd like to have a little more dramatic look, then you can blend it up into the brow. However, just putting it on your eyelid will give your eyes a quick pop of color to enhance your overall look. Do what works for you because there's no shame in being yo' fabulous self!
Ahhh, mascara! Now if you aren't one of the lucky ones who has visited us at Eye Candy Beauty + Boutique for fabulous lash extensions then you'll need some mascara to dramatize your look and open up your beautiful peepers.
I personally like black mascara because it's bold and makes your eyes stand out. However, you're more than welcome to get brown, brown/black or some random odd color that is the latest trend. To each is their own.
You have two ways you can wear mascara: (1) on both the top and bottom lashes or (2) top lashes only. Adding mascara to both your top and bottom lashes will provide you with a more dramatic look. I'm all for the only drama in my life to be my lashes!
As for the mascara only on the top lashes, it'll open up your eyes and give you an appearance of looking more awake. Think of it this way; as much as you feel like one hot mess you won't look like it!
I recommend adding three coats of mascara adding a new layer after the previous coat has dried. Do not go for the spider lashes look. It's not becoming on anyone!
If your lashes are starting to look like little spiders on your eyes, then use an eyebrow comb to fan out your lashes and remove excess mascara. Just remember to rinse the comb when done.
And if you’re in the market for some amazing lash extensions so that you can skip wearing mascara altogether, book an appointment with us HERE.
Want to be cheeky? Haha, I couldn't resist!
Cheek color is great to use year-round as it provides your overall look a more polished look. You can use blush or bronzer for cheek color to add that little extra zing to your bombshell look.
Now don't go overboard. Find a color that matches the season + your skin tone. Don't go crazy with it either. Apply the blush from the ear down to the cheekbones towards your perfect little pout. Blend, blend, blend! You can also add a little touch of blush to your chin to make your face appear longer. Remember not to blend the blush lower than the tip of your nose.
Bronzer can be a bit trickier but let's have some fun with it! Sweep your bronzer across the side of your forehead along your hairline. From there, apply bronzer to your cheekbones and then the jawline. Ideally, you want to visualize a three on each side of your face as you place your bronzer. Dust lightly your chin and nose. Don't forget to blend the bronzer down into your neck as well. It's imperative that you apply bronzer there so that your neck and face match!
Lip Gloss or Lipstick
Let's get lit up about your lippies!
Whether you're a lip gloss, lipstick or both kind of gal, it doesn't matter. Finish off your bombshell babe look with some lip color.
Be sure to use a color that matches your skin tone, is in season, and one that matches your overall look. Nothing worse than wearing fuchsia color lipstick in the Fall with a burgundy inspire outfit. Eeew! So NOT on trend.
Alright, you, bombshell babe, you! Do you love how simple this bombshell look is and legit you can do it in 10-min or less? It's perfect for when you're hustling to get out the door but still want to look like a smokin' hot babe in the process.
I hope this helps you stay on trend without all the fuss so that you can be fierce, fabulous, fun, and of course a total BOMBSHELL!
