10 Ways to Look Fancy in Under 5 Minutes
These 10 hair and makeup fixes will get you pretty in a wink, whether you’re partying after work or seeking a spontaneous mistletoe moment.
1. MATCHING LIPSTICK AND EARRINGS
Big earrings and a statement lipstick will dress you up instantly. Just ask Anne Curtis.
2. TIGHTLINED EYES
The gorgeous Lovi Poe proves that a fine-tipped eyeliner can take you from day to night. Tightline the eyes to make them look bigger by filling in the minute gaps between your lashes!
3. A NONCHALANT BUN
The topknot is the lazy girl’s answer to an elaborate updo. Make like Kathryn Bernardo and let a few tendrils fall around your face. Then set everything with a lightweight hairspray to maintain the look all night.
4. BARELY-THERE MAKEUP + BIG LASHES
We’re all for no-makeup makeup like Megan Young’s! By adding a pair of falsies, you elevate the look and create an instant “cat-eye,” sans eyeliner.
5. STROBED SKIN
Score Pia Wurtzbach’s glow with a good illuminator! A few swipes in the right spots will make you look wide awake (and wonderfully angelic).
6. FLIPPED HAIR
Channel Julia Barretto by raking your mane to the side, just over the eye. The messier the side-part, the better! We promise it’s as simple as combing through it with your fingers and finishing your work with a texturizing spray.
7. EARTH-TONED SMOKY EYES
A smoky eye is a holiday must-have, but black eyeshadow is tricky. If you use a brown or brick shade, the results are way more forgiving. An easy wash of earthy color will summon your inner Solenn Heussaff in no time at all.
8. THE ONE-COLOR FACE
A multi-purpose pigment will give your lips, lids, and cheeks a cohesive color scheme. See the chic treatment à la Lauren Reid?
9. MINIMALIST PONYTAIL
Turn your pony fancy with a center part and a slick of pomade, just like Kim Jones.
10. WEAR RED
If all else fails, pop on a red lippie and call it a night. Maxene Magalona does this all the time, and it never, ever lets her down.
