A Week’s Worth of Makeup Looks
posted on September 11, 2013 | by Amanda Holstein
While changing up your outfit everyday might be a no brainer, many of us are less apt to mix up our makeup routine on the daily. It’s easy to get stuck in the same routine, especially when you know it works for you. But why not spice up your week and try a new makeup look once in a while? Keep your coworkers on their toes and change up your look just for the fun of it. Below are five totally different makeup looks you can wear any day of the week. Just start with your normal foundation, concealer, and bronzer combination, then switch things up with some of these ideas:
Monday: Coral Pop
The best thing to brighten up a Monday? Bold coral lips. The color is fun, lively, and is sure to make you start the week off with a smile. Keep the eyes simple with some neutral cream shadow and a swipe of mascara on the top and bottom lashes. Finish with coral blush.

Tuesday: Bold Blue
A sultry yet simple look, blue eyeliner adds the perfect pop to the eyes without going over the top. Just wear it on the bottom lash line with neutral matte cream shadow and mascara. Keep the lips simple with a sheer gloss.

Wednesday: Smokey Neutrals
A soft brown smokey eye is a great look for work. Start with a shimmery neutral all over the lid. Then add a soft matte brown just to the outer corners. Finish the eyes with deep brown eyeliner and mascara. Keep the lips and cheeks simple with just a soft neutral pink.

Thursday: Winged Liner
As the weekend approaches, break out a fun look that can work from day to night. Try a smokey black liner and wing it out on the ends. Keep the lid simple with a sheer shadow. Add a nude lip using lipliner, lipstick, and gloss. Finish with your favorite blush.

Friday: Purple Rose
This romantic look is one of my favorites. Choose a pinkish purple eyeshadow palette and rose colored blush. Cover the lid with the lighter pinkish purple and fill in the outer corners with the darker color. Add a deep purple eyeliner on the upper lash line, and of course mascara. Finish with rose colored blush and soft pink lips. This is another great look that can easily transition from day to night – perfect for your Friday.
