Fast Beauty Tips and Tricks: Look Gorgeous in One Step

Kate Winslet

Kate Winslet at the Venice Film Festival: Well defined brows are just one way of looking great fast

If you don’t have a lot of time to do a full makeup and pampering session before your next night out, don’t despair.

According to this slide show of fast beauty tips and tricks from Cosmopolitan, take the lead from the stars at the Venice film Festival, who looked wonderful with a focus on just one thing.

Though celebrities look naturally gorgeous, there’s still a lot to gain by playing up just one of your best features, if you’re in a rush.

Choose from the following fast makeup looks for celebrity glamor:-


Sunkissed Bronze Look

A subtle bronze tawny look can give you the edge over paler beauties. Just don’t overdo the fake tan and look too over the top as winter sets in.

You just want to look healthy and pretty not orange.

Though bronzer is great for a sun-kissed look (just look at this Jennifer Aniston Sun Kissed Makeup Tutorial) make sure the color doesn’t stop at your neck – use an all over tanning product too.


Wonderful Lip Color

If you have a great mouth, focus your makeup efforts on your lip color. It doesn’t have to be “in your face” red, though if that is exactly the right color for you, then go for it. If you’re not ready for that, try a more subtle rose shade. Cosmopolitan says

“We love Gwyneth Paltrow’s sophisticated makeup, and it’s all about the rose-colored lips. When you wear a great shade of lipstick, you really don’t need anything else.”

Focus On Eye Lashes

If you prefer a more subtle look for your lips, it’s great to focus on bringing out your eyes with beautiful long thick lashes like the Cosmo celebrity example Keira Knightley.

If your lashes are not up to the job, try some falsies. With a bit of practice you can have beautiful lashes in no time.

Blend the false lashes with your own with a couple of coats of mascara (See How to apply mascara without clumping) and add eyeliner to draw even more attention. (In depth guide Perfect Eyeliner : How To Apply Eyeliner The Right Way will help if you don’t know how).


Dramatic Cat Eyes

If you want more drama than lashes and ordinary black eyeliner can bring, then a cat eye look may be just the thing to emphasize your eyes and add a sense of glamor to the occasion.

Beautiful Brows

Strong brows can frame your eyes beautifully, changing your look completely and they give a glamorous look even when you are wearing very subtle makeup. As Cosmo says

“Every element of Kate Winslet’s look is subtle except for her well-defined arches — further evidence that great brows can completely change your face.”
