I get it. There are days when you just can't even. When you just want to be a potato snuggled up on your bed while listening to that ~*feelsy*~ Spotify playlist. There is nothing wrong with letting go of yourself sometimes.
But just in case you'll need to *show up* for a certain situation but your energy levels are low, here's a short and sweet routine you can try. I've tried this many times myself, and it has helped with my "fake it 'til you make it" motto on tamad days. Check it out below:
Limit your makeup look to three items, max!
There's no denying that a little makeup helps in making you look cuter. I always go for an eyebrow pen, lip tint, and highlighter. My current kikay kit staples are the Colourette Shimmertint and Colourtint. I use the liquid highlighter on my lids and cheekbones, then the tint on my lips and cheeks. Sometimes, I layer Blur Balm and Easy Matte Lipstick when I have extra energy.ADVERTISMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW ↓

Wear cute earrings.
I'm more of a necklace-type of girl, but lately, I discovered that earrings add extra cute points when you have an almost bare face. I recommend this 18k gold-plated pair from local jewelry brand Ooomph. The minimalist design is sophisticated—it looks good whether you're wearing something casual or dressy.CONTINUE READING BELOW ↓watch now

Looking cute is all about attitude. Clear your head of negative thoughts or dig deep to find out why you're feeling low. Then, acknowledge these facts: You are enough and your body keeps you alive during a pandemic. Those two things are already huge achievements! Then, flash your cute smile and be ready to face the world.
