Easy makeup tips in this post aren’t your stereotypical makeover tips! Trust me, don’t run! But you are about to feel fabulous in less than 3 seconds flat!
My take on makeup is very different than what you make see on some beauty vloggers channel. One, I’m dealing with a chronic illness so ANY effort towards putting myself together has to be low energy to make it worth it.
Also, my number one rule about makeup isn’t about if this or that goes with your eye color or your skin tone. The number one way to find makeup you love is how it makes you FEEL, but more on that later!
Easy Makeup Tips: 2 Steps to Feeling Fabulous
These easy makeup tips are so easy a toddler can do it, and if they are like my kids they probably have!
Wearing makeup isn’t about spending hours and hours in the bathroom, and worrying about being good enough. It’s about how to express yourself!
The only piece of makeup I can absolutely not live without is lip gloss! Winters can be really harsh here in Minnesota so lip gloss allows me to moisturize my lips while putting a little glimmer in my look.
Neutrogena has a new line of Hydroboost makeup products that I recently had a chance to try, and I’m in love with their new line of Hydroboost lip glosses.
Neutrogena’s Hydroboost lip gloss adds just a hint of color to my lips, but a whole lot of moisture and shine! Plus, it’s not gloopy and gloppy like a lot of other brands’ lip glosses.
They have a ton of colors to choose from. My favorite are berry brown and soft blush.
Neutrogena isn’t just limiting their Hydroboost collection to lip gloss. They’ve got concealer, foundation, and cleansing gels and more!

2 Easy Makeup Tips to Put a Smile on Your Face
1. Screw Rules: This step could also be titled throw out the “rule” book. Screw rules. You are more awesome than rules!
The first step to rocking your awesome, with these easy makeup tips, is to forget everything you’ve ever been taught about skin shade, eye color, or how-tos! This is YOUR face and you know how to rock it more than anyone else. You don’t need no stinking rules.
2. Try on lots of colors, even ones that scare you: Now that you’ve taken that rule book and thrown it out of the window, you’re ready to find a shade that YOU Love!
If this is the first time you’ve thrown out the rule book don’t freak out. You can still take baby steps. Start with colors around what you normally wear, but take baby steps out of that comfort zone.
If you love pinks, try on tons of pinks and maybe a few shades that lead a little bit towards reds. The point is to have FUN, and don’t judge!
3. Winner, winner chicken dinner: When you find that perfect shade you will know! How will you know? (if he really loves me……..sorry Whitney Houston solo there for a second) Because when you find that perfect shade for you, you will light up like a Christmas tree in Rockafeller Square.
Makeup is about how it makes you FEEL, not how you think you look. It’s about putting a little pep in your step when you aren’t feeling so hot. A little lip gloss does that for me, and so does wearing some funky jewelry, or listening to a kick butt record.
If it takes a while for you to find that shade that makes you light up, don’t stress! This is meant to be fun, and maybe at the end of it, you decide just some plain clear lip balm is for you. That’s ok too!
At the end of the day, you need to find the little things in your life that make your life rock just a little bit better than it did before. It’s all about self-discovery and what YOU like, not a bunch of people telling you what you can and can’t do.
Break the rules, live a little, dare to be different! That’s how we roll here at Quirky Inspired! We’ve got your back, and you are fabulous just as you are!
