How to apply make-up quickly every day? If putting on make-up every day is a pleasure for some, it is an ordeal for others. Lack of time, ideas or know-how? Clotilde Sourisseau, make-up artist NYX Professional Makeup, gives us her tips for creating easy and quick makeup.

It's a fact:we don't necessarily all have the time, the desire or the inspiration to linger over our morning beauty routine.

  • The base:an even complexion

First step in a successful "healthy glow effect" make-up:the complexion.

We start, without exception to the rule, by moisturizing the face with a treatment adapted to your skin type (dry, oily, acne-prone, etc.).

Then, place the primer, "a base that serves to unify the complexion, to bring it radiance and to fix the make-up", specifies Clotilde Sourisseau. We opt for a covering foundation that we can apply with a brush (if we have time) or directly with the finger, “always starting from the center of the face outwards”, advises the make-up artist. Those who tend to have shiny skin can use a mattifying foundation.

To camouflage dark circles, apply a touch of concealer "with the pulp of the finger, gently tapping the area, so that the product blends naturally." In case of redness, dark circles (purple or bluish) or spots, we opt for a corrective palette", specifies our expert. A hint of loose powder to fix everything, a touch of blush on the cheekbones (rosé, coral or amber depending on your complexion) and you're done!

  • A slightly sustained gaze

If you have a little time, you can tackle the triptych:eyebrows, eyelids, eyelashes. If this is not the case, we take care in priority of the eyebrows with a 3-in-1 product (a pencil to draw, a powder to fill and densify the eyebrow, a mascara to fix the whole). Then, we hem his eyelashes with a few strokes of black or brown mascara.

Want to add a touch of eyeshadow? We opt for a sober color (beige, gold, pink, taupe) in powder or liquid format "that we can degrade with the finger" according to the make-up artist. A faster technique that avoids having to use brushes.

  • A delicately enhanced mouth

For a natural make-up during the day, a nude or slightly tinted lips are the best options. Apply a touch of moisturizing balm beforehand, then finish with a gloss or matte lipstick for long-lasting hold. For the more daring, Clotilde Sourisseau recommends a metallic gloss, a "very trendy product but to be applied with a light hand".
