I think most will agree our First Lady Michelle Obama is stunning and often times appears to be wearing minimal makeup. The same can be said of the amazing Cover Girl Ellen DeGeneres. Her makeup, like her style of dress is always easy breezy!

I saw these great make tips on the Huffington Post and thought it would be great to share with you beautiful ladies. Off course I had to add a few of my own tips. For a simple workday look, all you need is mascara, lip gloss, tamed eyebrows and concealer to cover minimal flaws.

Brows: Your eyebrows make such a difference in the way you look. You should always take care to groom your brows on a fairly regular basis. Grab an eyebrow brush (yes, you should definitely own one of these) and groom your brows by brushing in their natural direction of growth. For most women, this is upwards. Fill in any sparse sections with a brow pencil or powder, then brush again to blend product through. Sephora Eye CombSonia Kashuk Eyebrow Comb/Brush

Mascara: Curl your lashes, apply a few coats of mascara, then curl again to instantly wake up your look. If you have an extra two minutes to spare, one of my favorite quick tricks is to line my eyes with a kohl pencil and smudge it out. It is best to use a brown liner instead of black to achieve a softer look. Favorite Mascaras (I love so many of them. What are some of your favorites?): Benefits They’re Real, Cover Girl Last Blast, L’Oreal Voluminous Full Definition

Lips: a pink lipstick , tinted or clear gloss not only completes this look, but it creates a more youthful appearance. To change your look from the workday to happy hour , add a bolder lip color, such as a red or deep coral lipstick. Favorite Lip Color (This is a small list as I love some many! Please share some of your favorites) Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Intense, Express Lip Gloss, The Balm Stainiac

Concealer: Add a concealer that is as close to your skin tone as possible. Typically, most makeup artists will say you should use a concealer that is a shade lighter than your skin. However, if you are concealing minor flaws and do not intend on following up with foundation or BB cream always use a concealer that matches your skin tone. This will avoid having random light spots of concealer on your face. Tinted Moisturizer can be used in place of concealer. See previous post on tinted moisturizers. Favorite concealers: Coastal Scents, MAC Select Cover-Up, L’Oreal True Match,
