How to find your signature beauty style

As much as I love trying new makeup trends, (said the girl who perfected the Chanel 2016 quilted eye makeup) if you’ve been with me for awhile you’ve realized my makeup style is pretty stable. Rarely do I venture out of my comfort zone- The reason is straightforward; after seeing my face in countless pictures I know better what my shape and natural color palette. If you’ve yet to discover your signature makeup style, follow three simple rules to discover what’s best for you.

Draw your comfort zone.

I noticed a girl on a bike at 7.30am wearing a red lipstick and it was the prettiest sight I saw all day.ย  The term ‘too much makeup’, doesn’t exist in my terminology. Find what makes you feel wonderful and special. If a red lipstick or a dramatic eyeliner makes you feel comfortable, then by any means you should go for it.

Decide on the features you’d want to enhance.

Whether you love your eye color or shape, luscious lips or high cheekbones, perfecting makeup application in the particular areas, should jump up on your priority list. I particularly like to experiment with my makeup before I take a shower while carefully hiding from M. Lets say I made a ridiculous sight while practicing the iconic cat eye.

Calculate how much time you’d want to spend on it each day.

For those of us out there who love to sleep late, sacrificing each single day 30 minutes of your beauty sleep to basically cover signs of tiredness sounds silly. I understand that, perfectly well, I love sleeping and momentarily I’ve adjusted my makeup routine during working days, to not last longer than 10 minutes. However, I’ve met quite some women who enjoy makeup and in some way, and have no time making an effort. No excuses my darling, you are most young and beautiful right now. Find what works for you and make it a lifestyle.

It will change your life for the better, I promise.

    I loved reading this, and I totally agree with you! Why not wear red lipstick at 7.30am? (LOVE THAT!), it’s about how you feel most beautiful!

    I think our go-to makeup looks are pretty similar. I always go for eyeliner and brows (as yours above). I’ve done this for years and I think it suits my face the best haha. But I do add a lipstick or some bronzer/highlighting every now and then! Xx

    I’ve been thinking about changing my make up routine…however I am not sure what I will do yet.
    Right now its basically face powder to control the oil, followed by a dab of pink or bronze blush. For the eyes: one white or pink eyeshadow plus eyeliner at the top lid and mascara. Add lip color. That’s it. It takes me about 4 minutes.

    Absolutely agree Tatjana! You said very well about comfort zone – there is really nothing like “too less” or “too much”. I wear eyeliner since I am 13 and never put nose outside without it ๐Ÿ™‚ my make up routine taking same 10 min – we are profis, girl ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Great post babe, I found the reading really interesting! After years of practising, I realized natural make up is always a great option for a daily outfit and red lips for a night out…very traditional, but in my case it totally works ๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ’‹
