Kirsten Dunst’s No-Makeup Tutorial

If we could recreate just one makeup look every single day, it would have to be of actress Kirsten Dunst.

With skin that is always glowing, rosy cheeks, and glossy lips, this is definitely a quick and easy look which is perfect if you’re constantly on-the-go. Here are some quick tips on how to copy her (no-makeup) makeup look at home!

Moisturiser

To keep skin feeling hydrated all day long, use a rich moisturiser which won’t cause dry patches or irritate the skin. Apply a pea-sized amount all of the face and neck, then wait for it to dry completely. This particular product is ideal for women who suffer from extremely dehydrated and sensitive skin.

Foundation

You can skip this step if your skin is mostly free from blemishes or simply doesn’t have a reddish undertone. If you have a few blemishes, use a lightweight powder foundation to even out your skin tone. Dust lightly with a powder brush over the face and neck, avoiding the eye area.

Cheeks

Create a subtle hint of colour on your cheeks by using a liquid blush. This not only settles well into the skin, but keeps your face looking natural and radiant. Most cheek tints can also be used on the lips, so don’t be afraid to use this in the centre of your lips if you’re on-the-go!

Lashes

For flirty lashes, skip the eye liner and use just a mascara to create the illusion of bigger eyes. Curl your lashes, then apply a thin coat of mascara onto both the top and bottom. Feel free to curl lashes once again once the mascara has dried.

Lips

Kirsten never wears anything too harsh on her lips, so something like a glossy lip tint is perfect for finishing this look. Choose coral shades if you have an olive-dark complexion, or pink/purple shades for a fair complexion. Most of these chubby sticks can also be used as a blush and eyeshadow as well!

5 Hairstyles For Round Faces

Whether you’ve got full, thick hair or fine, thin hair, you will have noticed the difference that your face shape makes on how your favourite hairstyle looks. Complimenting a round face isn’t always easy so we’ve put together five of the best hairstyles for round faces, plus some styling tips to help you style your new cut.

Whatever your hair type, long hair will elongate a round face. Selena Gomez’s longer, layered cut really compliments her round face. If you have very thick, curly hair, try taming it with specialised hair products and hair tools.

With short hair or tied-up hair, try adding volume on the top of the head with moose, spritz, back-combing or wax, just like style queen Ginnifer Goodwin who adds texture to her pixie cut with a little hair product, instantly elongating the face.

Fringes can look amazing on round faces, just avoid thick fringes on hair that is shoulder length or above – this will just swamp your face. Kirsten Dunst opts for a soft, side-swept fringe will looks romantic and feminine yet flattering.

Thick or curly hair can look very dense when cut short, making your face look rounder. If you have very thick hair and wish to cut your hair to shoulder length or shorter, layering and feathering can make the hair look lighter and smoother. Law and Order’s Mariska Hargitay might have thick, full hair, but her chic short hairstyle and clever layering makes her hair look lighter and younger.

When wearing hair up, trail some hair at the front to frame the face – Emma Stone is a pro at the updo with soft, feathered layers around the face.

Hairstyling tips for round faces:

1. Frame your face by curling the front of the hair inwards. This looks best when done at around chin length.

2. As with any face shape, healthy, well-kept hair will always make you look and feel great, so stick to a daily hair care beauty regime, avoiding heated styling aids and chemical-heavy products when possible. Pay attention to your hair type and condition when choosing from among the many fashionable hairstyles for round faces that are out there.
