Not a Kardashian contouring kinda gal and like to keep things low key on the makeup front? We totally get that, but simple doesn’t have to equal boring! Take a little inspo from ModelCo and go bold with these easy-but- interesting makeup looks. No degree in makeup artistry required.
1. Boy brow
One of the quickest ways to completely transform your face is with your brows. Especially if their natural state is more ‘90s Barrymore than 2000-and- teens’ Delevingne! ModelCo’s Brow Pomade is a cream gel that’s perfect for creating a dramatic, full and sculpted look that doesn’t budge. But for an easy, breezy boy brow that anyone can master, More Brows Fibre Gel is the business. With brush-on, hair-like particles, it helps you fake your way to fuller, thicker brows – just apply the quick-dry gel in a sweeping motion with the brush tip applicator and you’re done.
2. Graphic Liner
Graphic eyeliner is big news at the moment, and there are loads of different ways to play around, from strategically placed dots, to our current fave – the disconnected line. Create an inky, winged lineup top, extending the inner and outer wings a little or a lot, depending on how subtle you want to be. Then leave an unexpected finger-width gap in the centre of the bottom lash line. ModelCo’s Waterproof Eyedefine Liner is great for this as it glides smoothly and won’t budge, smear or flake.
3. Flaming Lips
Keep your entire look pared back – think just dewy, lightweight foundation, concealer where needed, and mascara – and let your lips do the talking. Berry, scarlet, merlot, terracotta… we’ve rarely met a red lip that doesn’t wow! Matte’s where it’s at right now, but we also want long-lasting comfort, so we’re head over heels with ModelCo’s Luxe Crème Long Wear Lipstick. The easy-glide, semi-matte formula is the best of both worlds.
4. Flash lashes
Want dramatic lashes without the upkeep, and expense, of extensions? ModelCo are here for you with their AHmazing, glue-free, fuss-free magnetic lashes. Just give your clean lashes a coat or two of inky black mascara, then apply one set of lashes above and below each natural lash, and the magnets will hold them in place. Here’s a handy video to show you how it’s done. Dramatic lashes in a flash.
