Congrats! You’ve made it through the work week and now it’s time for happy hour! You can head straight out with friends or co-workers with these easy tips from a celebrity makeup artist!
When it’s happy hour, no one has time to run home and “freshen up” — that it just not a thing, anymore! Having a few key products at your desk or in your purse is all you need to bring your look from desk to drinks, day to night. Celeb makeup artist Matin has worked with celebs like Camila Cabello, Rachel Bilson, Mandy Moore, Claire Danes, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Cynthia Nixon, Liv Tyler, Rachel Weisz and many more. He knows it all and is spilling on some makeup tips for a fun night out. “I was just joking about that, saying just open a couple of shirt buttons and you are good to go!” Matin laughed. “Another way is to add either eye makeup or a lip. If you’re an eye makeup girl, then you add more eye makeup and keep the lips soft. For example, if I am doing a smoky eye, I might use a sheer, peachy lipstick or even just the ChapStickTotal Hydration Moisture + Tint in Coral Blush Tint.”
“It’s a very light color on the lips, but it works if you’re only emphasizing the eyes. You might want to put some pencil on the inner rim of the eye to give it the smoky look, and add darker eye shadow, of course. But if you are a lip girl, then you can just keep everything else clean and go with a bright lipstick — red lips, perhaps. You can dress up the face from day to night with a bright lip. If you are too shy for a bright lip, the ChapStick Total Hydration Moisture + Tint in Merlot is an amazing product to use and it gives you a hint of red without looking like too much. So that’s one way to do it. It all depends on whether you are more comfortable with more eye makeup or a strong lipstick.”
He also says if you go with the lipstick option, you need to prep your lips with a scrub. “A lip scrub is one of the most important things. Try the Chapstick Total Hydration Lip Scrub — there’s nothing like healthy looking lips. Even if you are not wearing makeup, if the lips are hydrated and beautifully displayed, then your whole makeup looks so much better. So scrub every morning and then put on your lip balm or lipstick — that’s the best way to make your lips look good.”
