Get your eyebrows manicured. They frame you face and even if you just like to wear lip gloss, having them done makes you look more polished. I prefer threading, but whatever floats your boat.
Wash your face with your daily cleanser and pat dry, but leave a little moisture on your face and neck. I use Neutrogena Naturals facial wash daily and Jason apricot exfoliant twice weekly during the Winter and more often in the warmer months.
Moisturize your face and neck. In the Winter, I use Jason Vitamin E 25, 000 units moisturizer. In the warmer months I switch to something lighter.
Moisturize your lips. I use Vaseline cocoa butter. I am addicted.
If you do this everyday, or a similar routine, your skin will love you for it and will look great.
First I apply concealer under my eyes and to my eyelids (it helps to keep your eye shadow on), then to the sides of the base of my nose and anywhere else I need concealing. I use a make up sponge to apply it by gently dabbing it into my skin until its blended.
Next, using my kabuki brush I apply bronzer to my T zone. I usually skip this in the summer because I have a tan and that area is highlighted already.
Then I apply a pink or coral (or whatever color would look fab on you) to the apples of my cheeks.
Lastly, I curl my lashes, which makes a huge difference and apply dark brown/black mascara to each eye. Then I brush my eyebrows.
Some days I may add a little pizazz with a purple or turquoise eyeliner or some gold or taupe eye shadow.
I usually have this done in about 5 minutes and like the subtle difference.
