Zoom Game Night with the Gang
Hanging out online with your favorite girls? Put your game face on when you do trivia quizzes, charades, and the like while still looking gorgeous.
1. Fun, bold eyes
The eyes say it all—you're out to play and have the time of your life, even if it's just for a good one hour or so. Go for a creative, bold eye look! Since you're with friends, you can show up in quirky fashion, and no one's ever going to judge you. On the contrary, everyone will love how your eye makeup is fun and fierce at the same time!
Date Night with Your SO
Being on home quarantine doesn't mean you can't have your date night—although it does mean meeting up via Zoom for the time being. The good news is, getting your face done is as simple as these makeup application steps.
2. Flushed cheeks with a luminous glow
Faces can look washed out on video because the light tends to drown out your features. So if you feel like you look a bit dull on screen, it's just the video working against you.
Bring back that vibrant flush by adding a pop of color on your cheeks with the Maybelline Cheek Heat Gel Cream Blush. With this, you'll look as glowy as you naturally do in person. Top off your look with the Facestudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter over your cheekbones and down your nose bridge to give your complexion an ethereal glow
3. Tantalizing cat eyes with a nude pout
Feeling feisty and beguiling? Let the eye-cat look show this side of your personality. We bet you your special someone will fall head over heels over again with you! The Line Tattoo Impact Pen will come in handy.
Draw a winged line from the inner corners of your eyes, going outward and extending past your eyebrows. Pair your feline eyes with the perfect pout by wearing earthy shades from the SuperStay Matte Ink Coffee Collection for plump- and soft-looking lips.
4. Nude lids and red lips
You can get away wearing a lightly pigmented lip gloss or none at all for some occasions or events. But a bright or deep red lippie from the SuperStay Matte Ink™ Spice Collection can make all the difference to make you feel glammed up— even if you're wearing plain loungewear! As for the eyes, you can go with a simple yet sultry look with The Nudes Palette No-Nonsense Business Meeting
5. Fresh, no-makeup look
During super hectic days, your usual 10-minute makeup routine probably goes out the window and, with it, your cat-eye makeup. So how do you pull off still looking good for your social catch-up after work?
It all starts with clean, well-hydrated skin to make you look fresh even with no makeup. Plus, a soft, natural look can do wonders to save your day—and face too! A quick dab of the Sensational Liquid Matte Lip Tint on your cheeks and lips can make all the difference. It's amazing how a tiny amount is enough to make you feel confident and in charge.
If you have more time to spare, slap on tinted moisturizer as your base, Instant Age Rewind Concealer on the center of your face, and Sensational Liquid Matte Lip Tint as your blush, eyeshadow, and lip color. Don't forget to spritz your favorite mist for that dewy effect throughout the day, especially before going live on a call.
6. Simple monochromatic eyes with commanding red lips
Red lips work wonders for boosting your confidence level during Zoom meetings, even if the reality is you've barely slept the night before. When you wear one of the daring red shades from the SuperStay Matte Ink™ Spice Collection, you make a strong statement that you're ready to get down to work.
Pair it with a simple monochromatic eye using the City Mini Pallete-5th Avenue Sunset, and you're good to go!
