Set your mind back to when you last tried to take a selfie. If you are anything like me, then you take thousands of photos to find the perfect one and even then you decide that you look like Shrek with no make up on and leave it anyway. Well! For fellow Shreks like me - Welcome your first Lazy Girl Hack - YouCamMakeup.
YouCamMakeup is a wonderfully strange app that applies make up to your face for just a photo and it truly is a mixed bag of results. I have taken some cleverly arty shots that made my face look like it was in full coverage but I had not an inch of make-up on me, and no one could tell the difference. Don't believe me? Well excuse my overly "Pouty Instagram face" and take a look!
The app gave me false eyelashes, eyeshadow, foundation and lipgloss. I can guarantee that I was not wearing an inch of makeup underneath with the pure fact that - I'm too lazy to do so. It doesn't stop there!
This time it gave me the classic smokey eye and red lip look.
The app contains many "looks" such as Cleo, Ravishing, and Swan - each giving you a different look, but it also allows you to change each element to your liking such as lip and eye colour!
This app does take some getting used to, as you have to align yourself perfectly so that the eyelashes don't warp around your face leaving some hilarious mess ups.
Did I say mess up? I meant clearly I always put my eyelashes on my actual eyeball - it adds a lovely effect don't you think?
And if you have a boyfriend like mine who is up for a giggle, then you can get some equally hilarious beauty shots of him!
Wait did I say he was willing to do it? Oh...I meant I took off his glasses so he couldn't see. Though you have to admit! He is alluring in red!
So there you have it. A way to wear no make-up at all, and yet...still be wearing it! I'm not saying that this is the sneakiest thing to do, especially when taking selfies in public. I tried experimenting whilst waiting for Geran in a game shop, and I ended up capturing a confused looking woman in the background, watching the eyelashes bounce around my face; but this is definantly a fun experiment for when you really cannot be bothered.
Though remember! The greatness of being a lazy girl, or any girl for that matter, is that you don't need make-up to look gorgeous! You're perfect the way you are!
So embrace your Shrek face for what it is! A perfect canvas to show your unique and natural self.
Great...Now I just realised that if my metaphor is correct... that Geran is Fiona.
I wandered why he looked so great in lipstick.
