beauty queen: iggy azalea

pink lips sink ships.

by rebecca willa davis

Some days you just can't be bothered with makeup. Who has time to stress over toners, CC creams, and contouring brushes every morning?

Still, a totally makeup-free day means that someone you know will ask you, "Are you sick?" which, if you're anything like me, just might lead to you crying in the bathroom. (The only upside? No mascara will run because, you know, you didn't put any on.)

The happy middle ground is Iggy Azalea's simple but dramatic look. With just a flick of a liquid liner and a dab of pink lipstick, Azalea has created a camera-ready face in no time. In these hellishly humid days, a good eyeliner and no-smudge lipstick are practically gold. Azalea framed her eyes and lips with some expertly manicured brows and called it a day.

We found the products to help you get though this lazy summer with a flawless but still fun face.


LINE IT: Sephora Long-Lasting 12HR Wear Eye Liner - $12

This is the only eye liner I've ever found to not run down my face once the temperature goes above 70. It stays on magically, has an easy applicator, and washes off without giving you raccoon eyes the morning after. It's the total package.

LIP IT: CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipcolor in Siren - $4.87

A Barbie pink lipstick may seem scary, but it can solve your beauty woes with just one swipe. Make sure to apply it evenly across your lips and do a couple blots to get the color locked in.

TWEEZE IT: Tweezerman Stainless Steel Mini Slant Tweezer - $15

Too-thin brows are a beauty nightmare, but bushy caterpillars are no good either. Find a safe place by starting tweezing away strays and finishing up by making a tiny arch around the outer edge of your eye.
