With our summer holidays over and online education back in full swing, what better than a quick morning makeover to help mask the effects of the night before. We’ve put together some simple steps for a back to Zoom makeup routine to help make sure you’re looking top of the class on your virtual lectures. 

Prep and prime  

Whether your skin needs a little TLC or you simply want your makeup to last till the end of your lectures, prepping and priming is key. Chose a hydrating moisturiser such as the Murad Clarifying Oil-Free Water Gel to restore balance to your skin. The gel-like texture glides and absorbs fast making it even quicker to touch up your appearance in the mornings. Once your skin is feeling fresh and nourished take a primer to help keep your makeup in place. MAC strobe cream contains iridescent pearls to help create a natural healthy-looking glow whilst this works in Transit Camera Close-Up contains a boost of caffeine to erase signs of fatigue and make your skin look radiant.

Ace your base

If you’re looking for a full coverage glow or just want to gently coverup imperfections, we have the products for you!Too Faced Born This Way is the perfect foundation for a medium coverage with an undetectable finish that gives you a naturally flawless makeup look. If it’s a fuller coverage you’re looking for try Maybelline Superstay 24H Liquid Foundation. The lightweight formula minimises the appearance of imperfections, whilst delivering natural-looking colour for a smooth, even makeup base that stays in place for all day wear. Alternatively, if you’re just wanting to conceal bags and banish blemishes use the NARS Cosmetics Radiant Creamy Concealer lightly over problem areas and you’re good to go! 

Lift your lashes

Awaken and emphasise your eyes with the help of our favourite lash products. Go all out with Maybelline The Falsies Instant Lash Lift Look Lengthening Volumising Mascara in black. Promising results that rival those of the salon, the product glides onto your lashes to help you achieve that well-defined flutter. If you’re wanting a little more au naturel, try the L'Oréal Paris Paradise Castor Oil-Enriched Volumising Mascara in shade Brown. The product offers a softer alternative for a bronzed sultry look, perfect for those early mornings!If you’re just wanting longer lashes without the fuss then try the L'Oréal Paris Clinically Proven Lash Serum. The product is enriched with a complex of growth-stimulating ingredients to help strengthen and reinforce the lashes. Perfect to enhance your natural beauty! 

Perfect your pout

One of the easiest ways to pull a look together is to emphasise the lips. Whether you’re a gloss kind of girl or liquid lipconnoisseur, a quick swipe across the lips brings effortless glam to your look. A cult favourite, NYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss delivers a splash of sumptuous colour to your lips with a high-shine glossy finish. Another affordable classic is theRevlon Super Lustrous Gloss available in a range of shades to take your lips from 0-100.If you’re looking for a more powerful punch, the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Exclusive The Slim Glow Matte Lipstick delivers a luminous matte finish, and saturates your pout in a slick of high-quality, radiant colour. 

Refresh your hair

We all know the struggle of the dreaded hair wash debate so save yourself that extra half hour in bed with our hair refreshing products. Generously spritz your hair with the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo available in a range of tones to best suit your hair colour. Work the product into dry hair to revive between washes and banish any signs ofodour, product build-up or grease. If you’re conscious of your curls try the Ouidad Botanical Boost Curl Energising and Refreshing Spray to define yourlocks and give them the boost they need.Although your lessons may be virtual, make sure your hair is still smelling great! Treat your tresses to theBalmain Hair's Silk Perfume; a beautifully scented formula that delivers a mysterious, feminine fragrance in one spray.
