Bold Red Lips
Having a bold red lipstick is a must in every girl's makeup stash. It instantly elevates your look without even trying, as it goes well with minimal makeup. Put on your favorite red lippie, brush your eyebrows, add a little blush, and you are good to go!
Considered as one of the classic red lipstick is the M.A.C. retro lipstick in Ruby Woo shade. If you are looking for that all-time favorite red lipstick with blue undertones, then this is definitely perfect for you.
If red lipstick is not your thing, then you can go with bold eye makeup. One way to give your face a pop of color without using eyeshadow is by swiping some eyeliner.
Ditch the black and go for some electric blue or fiery red for that perfect winged eyeliner. But don't forget to add a little mascara and choose a nude-colored lip for a subtle vibe.
Get this look using the Vivid Brights Liner by Nyx Cosmetics in Vivid Fire Red for that playful makeup without overdoing it. Aside from red, it also offers four other shades, including vivid petal, vivid delight, vivid halo, and vivid escape.

A Shade of Pink
Pink is always a staple in minimalist makeup as it gives off that innocent and young-looking glow. Create a soft glam look using the Lilac You a Lot eyeshadow palette from Colourpop. Said to be the brand's dreamiest palette, it offers pastel shades made from buttery matte shadows with a hint of eye-catching metallics.
Definitely, one of the easiest hair updos is the sleek bun. Whether it is a high or low bun, this hairstyle will make you look effortlessly polished.
You can do the middle part or side part depending on your preference, then lightly spray the hairbrush with hairspray before combing it through your hair as it tames flyaways and adds shine. Next is to smoothen down the sides with styling cream.
The third step is to section your ponytail into two equal parts, then start by grabbing one part and rolling your hair away from your face and towards the back of your head. Add some bobby pins to secure the bun. The last step is to spritz hairspray to hold the bun into its place.
