BEAUTY | A Simple 10-Minute Makeup Look For Your Next Zoom Meeting

Chi Shevket, senior regional makeup trainer for Hourglass Middle East, reveals how to get a simple, sophisticated beauty look in minutes for your next video call.

Prep The Skin

You need to prep your skin, whether you’re going for a natural makeup look or full glam’, states Shevket. The makeup artist suggest cleansing your skin thoroughly and moisturizing before applying the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer to clean skin. ‘Primers not only create a smooth canvas for makeup,  but they also conceal readiness, minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles and provide sun protection’, she explains.

Camouflage Carefully

Minimize shadows under the eyes, around the nose and under the lips with a concealer. ‘Apply a few dots of concealer in each areas of the face and buff it in with a blending brush or sponge’, says the makeup artist. Shevket likes the Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Concealer. The highly-pigmented formula not only conceals dark sports and blemishes, but also created an undetectable, creaseless finish.

Contour Subtly

The lighting on a Zoom call isn’t the most forgiving, and having been stuck inside for weeks, you can easily look washed out on screen’, notes Shevket. ‘Adding a touch of bronzer will give your skin a natural, sun-kissed look’. Her go-to: Hourglass’ The Ambient Lighting Bronzer, which provides a warm bronze shade that rivals a summer glow. You can apply it all over the face to create a healthy glow, or use it to crave out your features by applying the formula along the temples, hollows of the cheeks and jawline.

Define Eyes And Boost Brows

Shevket says ‘there’s no need to spend hours on our eyebrows for a Zoom call, so a brow gel is the perfect go-to. ‘She suggest using a smudge-proof formula like the Hourglass Arch Brow Microfiber on the arches. Then, adding a few coats of mascara to amplify the eyes. ‘This will help you look wide awake on the call’, the makeup artist explains.

Add The Finishing Touches

Add a pop of color to your lips and cheeks to complete your look. Shevket prefers a moisturing formula for the lips, such as the Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo, to leave the punt hydrated and smooth. ‘The hybrid formula also doubles as a perfect creamy blush’, notes the makeup artist. ‘Simply dab onto your fingers and apply onto the apples of your cheeks’, she suggests.
