It seems like Kendall, Alexa Chung and Bella Hadid always have perfection down pat, even in their downtime. Read this for tricks on how you too can look effortlessly chic.
1. Messy hair, don’t care!
It may seem like all these models have voluminous, wavy hairdos that might require us a trip to the salon. But with a little styling and the right tools, you too can have ‘em and it takes less time than you think! Separate your hair into many thin sections and curl them. It doesn’t have to look perfect, so don’t worry about having to be neat. When you’re done, comb through with a large paddle brush for added volume. Massage on a shine serum to minimise frizz.
2. Conceal it
You need to let your skin breathe once in a while, so apply makeup only where needed. Use an easy-to-blend concealer with a brush on any redness, spots or uneven skin tone for that even effect. And trust us you wouldn’t want the oil from your hands to be transferred onto your face!
Don’t forget to apply concealer around your nostrils and laugh lines too as this will brighten your face up even more, giving you a youthful appearance.
3. Slightly undone
While you don’t have to go out with a full face of makeup, no one looks good with chapped lips. So make sure your pout is properly moisturised for a polished look. Also, use lip balm on the high points of your face where it’ll catch the natural light and enhance your features.
4. Be scent-tastic!
Above all, you have to smell good cos how you look isn’t going to make a difference when you’re stinking! If you like a scent with a hint of mystery, this fragrance exudes a soft addictive trail of sparkling apple, black rose and butterfly orchid. Its relaxed nature and effortless layering evoke an ethereal free spirit.
