1. Easy Natural Makeup | Easy Makeup Tutorials
Need to run some errands but do not want to look like you just got out of bed? This will probably be your new go-to easy makeup look!
Here’s how to pull it off:
Step 1: Apply foundation and fill in brows.
If you’re really in a hurry, you can apply foundation using your fingers. Gently apply the foundation on the entire face. Once done, work on filling in your eyebrows.
Step 2: Apply concealer
Sometimes foundation is enough but if you feel the need to apply concealer under the eyes, you can use your ring finger to do so. You can also apply concealer on the lids if needed. This will help brighten your eyes, especially if you have dark undereye circles.
Step 3: Apply mascara.
When doing simple and natural makeup looks, it is very important to apply mascara on the lashes even if you don’t have eyeliner. Mascara makes the eyes pop!
Step 4: Apply blush and lip balm.
We highly recommend using a lighter shade of blush for this look, perhaps a soft pink or peach depending on what suits your skin tone. So apply blush on the apples of your cheek and finish off with a lip balm/lip gloss. Pick a balm or gloss with a tint of color so your face doesn’t appear washed-out.
And there you have it, an easy makeup tutorial for a natural look! Here’s the finished look:

2. Quick Everyday Makeup | Easy Makeup Tutorials
Let’s just face it, mornings are pretty hectic. If you’re a mom, you’ll make the most out the rare 10 minutes you get. So this is another quick and easy makeup tutorial for those who need a super simple and easy-to-do everyday look!
Here are the steps:
Step 1: Apply concealer, liquid foundation or BB cream.
Some women do not like wearing foundation in the morning while some aren’t bothered with it. In any case, start by applying foundation, BB cream, or just concealer, whichever you prefer. Now if you feel like you need a bit more coverage, you can use powder foundation on top.
Step 2: Fill in the eyebrows and apply mascara.
Using an eyebrow pencil, fill in your eyebrows. You can also use an eyebrow gel to smoothen out the hair. After that, curl your lashes and apply an ample amount of mascara.
Step 3: Apply a lip conditioner or lip balm.
In this tutorial, lip conditioner was used on the lips to give it a nice, subtle glow. However, if you prefer using a lip balm or gloss, that will be good too.
Step 4: Finish off with blush or bronzer.
If you want a bit of a sunkissed glow, you can apply bronzer. Dust off some bronzer on the forehead, cheeks, and other parts of the face. If you want to keep it simple, a light blush is good.
And that’s it, you already have another quick everyday look to do! Here’s the finished look:

3. Perfect Easy Smokey Eye Makeup | Easy Makeup Tutorials
Everybody needs to learn how to do the smokey eye. Yes, even makeup beginners! But don’t worry, this perfect smokey eye is so easy, it takes less than 5 minutes to pull off!
Step 1: Apply eyeliner and blend.
Usually, smokey eye makeup will require the use of dark eyeshadow. But since we’re taking the easy route, a Kohl pencil is the perfect tool. Cover the eyelids and lash line (upper and lower) with Kohl pencil. Don’t worry, as this type of pencil is soft and is great for buffing. After application, get an eyeshadow brush and buff the color into the lids as well as the bottom lash line.
Step 2: Line the lash lines again.
Since this will be an intense eye makeup look, line the upper and lower lash line again with your Kohl pencil. This time, making sure that you cover the inner corner of the eye.
Step 3: Apply eyeshadow and line.
Now apply eyeshadow over the lid and under the eye. In this tutorial, Pixiwoo used a shimmery dark olive green eyeshadow. You can also use other dark shades of shadow if you want. After the eyeshadow, get your Kohl pencil and line the outer corner of the eye and then buff again.
Step 4: Apply mascara and define the eyes more.
Next, apply mascara on your top and bottom lashes. Follow that up with applying a bit of a peach colored blush on the socket of the eyes. This will help define the smokey eye makeup more.
Step 5: Fill in the brows and wear false eyelashes.
To finish the look, fill in the brows and put on falsies. Although wearing false eyelashes is optional, it definitely adds drama to the eyes in an instant!
So there you have it, easy and perfect smokey eyes for your night out! Check out the finished look:

4. Easy Blake Lively Makeup Look | Easy Makeup Tutorials
Why a Blake Lively look you ask? It’s because every time we see her, her skin looks healthy and glowing…and that is the perfect look we need to learn this spring!
To do this look, follow these steps:
Step 1: Apply BB cream and concealer
Using foundation can look heavy for this look, so let’s opt for a BB cream or tinted moisturizer instead. Remember, we want to achieve a dewy look and not a matte finish. Now apply concealer under the eyes to hide dark undereye circles for a healthier look.
Step 2: Apply eyeshadow.
Use a nude eyeshadow as your base eyeshadow and blend all over the lid and under the eyes. Add a bit of shimmer as well so the eyes won’t look too flat. Just don’t overdo the shimmer. Remember, Blake Lively looks like she doesn’t wear tons of makeup and it’s always a natural glowing look with her.
Step 3: Apply eyeliner.
Using an eyeliner pencil, apply eyeliner on the outer corner of the eye and then blend it–just to give the eye more depth. Also put eyeliner on the bottom lashline, just a quarter of the way from the outer corner. Blend it as well.
Step 4: Apply mascara and fill in the brows.
Apply mascara on the top and bottom lashes and proceed with filling in the brows.
Step 5: Apply blush and lipstick.
It’s all about the fresh and glowing makeup so we’re sticking to a soft pink blush. Apply on the apples of the cheeks and then apply a pink shade of lipstick as well. It’s best to go for lipstick that has a bit of shimmer and shine.
Woot! Wasn’t that easy? Now we can recreate Blake Lively’s natural and glowing makeup anytime! Here’s the finished look:

5. Easy Scarlett Johansson Glamour Makeup | Easy Makeup Tutorials
So we’ve covered the Blake Lively look, let’s move on to the Scarlett Johansson look which is bolder and more glam.
Here are the steps:
Step 1: Apply foundation and fill in the brows.
For a glam look, you will need something with more coverage so we need to use foundation for this one. Apply foundation with a foundation brush to make sure everything is blended well. Next, fill in the brows with an eyebrow pencil. Don’t make the brows to dark, the brows just need definition.
Step 2: Apply eyeshadow.
In this tutorial, Pixiwoo used the Urban Decay primer potion as it had a shimmery nude finish to it. But if you have other similar eyeshadow at home, that’s fine. So apply it all over the lid. And then get a black eyeshadow and line the lashline using an angled brush. Extend the line to create a flick or a wing.
Step 3: Apply mascara and wear false eyelashes.
It’s a glam look so we need our lashes to be fabulous too. Apply several coats of mascara and then wear false eyelashes to add drama to the eyes.
Step 4: Apply concealer and blush.
Apply concealer under the eyes and anywhere you think you need it. You must achieve flawless skin with this look. After that, apply blush on the cheeks.
Step 5: Apply powder and lipstick.
Apply pressed powder or finishing powder over the face to set the makeup and hold it in place. And then, finish off the look by applying red lipstick.
Wow! I didn’t know you can do a glam look this easy! I love it! Here’s the finished look:
