We've been stuck at home for quite a long time now. I'm pretty sure that it is not unknown to many of us that it takes a lot of effort to get up from our beds and couches to give ourselves that daily dose of showers and baths. I also am quite sure that most of our friends have already seen what our brows really look like, growing their hairs in their natural state. Now, for the boys this doesn't really matter because girls, who are we kidding? We all know one boy probably has better brows than most of us girls have.
So, girls and boys buckle up! I'm here to give you some tips on how to create effortless, simple, yet presentable looks for when you have to answer your video calls whenever and wherever.
- Tinted Moisturizer or Sunscreen
Putting on foundation maybe a little too much when you're just working from home. Most likely, you’d also want to keep your face breathing throughout the day. As an alternative, using a tinted moisturizer or sunscreen is just the perfect balance of bare skin and a foundation filled face.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 25 (Php 2,050) — With its light but buildable coverage, it feels as if you’re not wearing anything at all. Plus, you want that extra coverage? No problem!
Belo Tinted SunScreen with SPF 50 (Php 425) — This affordable yet effective product feels very light on the skin. One of its main features is protecting you from UV ray exposures you might get from being in front of your computer screen most of your days.
- Cheek Tint
Cheek tint is probably the best friend anyone can get from makeup products. This pick helps bring back the life on your face with ease! Smile, swipe some on your cheeks, and you’re gonna look as if you haven’t been stressing all week. Using this as a replacement for your eyeshadow look is also an option! Not only will it bring extra color on your face, but also your no-makeup look will be put together even more.

- Lip Color
What is makeup without a little fun on the lips? While lip tints are fun and just enough to give that perfect shade on your lips, you may still use your go-to lipstick! Apply a small amount on your lips and touch up with your fingers.
MAC Velvet Teddy (Php 1,100) — A cult favorite and lipstick classic that almost certainly guarantees an MLB moment!
Sunnies Face Lip Dip Posh (Php 395) — An affordable lip product which creates this beautiful mauve tint without making your lips too dark.
To give you that dewy look, especially on camera, put on some highlighter for a little glow. You may even add some shine on your eyes for that extra oomph on your work from home look.

Colourpop Luster Dust Loose Highlighter in Strobe Globe (Php 550) — When a little glitter goes a long way! The Colourpop highlighter allows you to achieve that champagne shimmer look even when you’re at home.
To have your eyebrows on fleek is always a must, even when you’re at home. While we still can’t go out and have our eyebrows shaped, surely some eyebrow makeup can help create that shape and illusion.
The Disney x Happy Skin Perfect Eyes Trio (Php 899.00) — This 3-in-1 product: the matte eyeshadow, the eyebrow pencil, and the three-prong trident felt-tip, allows you to mimic the brow hairs shape for a more natural look!
