We’ve all had those mornings where we’re running late but question if there’s still time to put our makeup on. You hit the snooze button five times, spent too much time singing in the shower and are instantly regretting it. Now you have to figure out how you’re going to balance your eyeshadow palette and mascara on the train without elbowing anyone in the face.
If this sounds like your typical morning, you’re not alone.
Believe it or not, you can still apply your favorite beauty products and make it to work on time. If you’ve ever watched Riverdale, you’ll notice that there’s one character whose makeup always looks put together, no matter when or where the scene is taking place. Veronica Lodge, who is played by Camila Mendes, is the queen of the everyday makeup look. You’ll never see her without a bold red or classic nude lip, dramatic brows, or winged eyeliner sharp enough to cut glass.
The best part is that her look is so easy and cheap to recreate! Now you don’t have to skip out on applying makeup when you’re pressed for time. Here’s how you can copy her simple makeup routine in five minutes.
Get flawless skin by applying primer first.
When it comes to makeup, primer is everything. Using the right primer will help your foundation glide on smoothly and make your makeup last longer. This will also make your skin look and feel refreshed.
Play up your brows.
Camilla Mendes’ eyebrow game is always on point. If you have thinner brows, you can fake volume by following these simple steps: First, gently brush the hairs using a brow brush. Outline them with a simple brow shadow before filling them in (eye shadow also works). This will give them some shape. Makeup hack: Make sure that you always go one or two shades lighter than your hair so it looks more natural.
Use liquid eyeliner for the perfect winged eyeliner look.
Start from the inner corner of your eye and then trace your upper lash line. Draw the end of your line out towards your eyebrow to get that crisp curve and then fill it in to your liking.
Apply mascara for a more dramatic look.
The bolder, the better. Veronica is easily one of the most outspoken, confident characters on the show and her makeup matches her personality perfectly. Channel Veronica by applying one to two coats of mascara on your upper and lower lash line.
Define your pout with a red lip or go natural with a nude tone.
Veronica’s signature look ranges from a nude lip gloss to a fire engine red lipstick. This lipstick collection by Bésame Cosmetics is inspired by vintage Hollywood starlets and is the perfect finishing touch.
