You’re one busy lady, yes, but that doesn’t mean you have to allow yourself to head out the door every single day looking like you didn’t have a care in the world about fixing yourself with even the slightest hint of makeup. You deserve to look your best, no matter how busy you are.
It’s simple: when you just can’t afford the time, a streamlined beauty routine is a must. Here are some of our favorite beauty hacks to make manic mornings a little easier to handle.
Ditch your makeup brushes
While it’s every makeup lover’s dream to have a gazillion brushes for all of contouring, lining, and stippling needs, these tools are not what you need when you’re in a time crunch. Truth is, when you’re in a hurry, it’s great to just apply everything—foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, lipstick—with your fingers. It gets your makeup done much more quickly than if you had to go through all the motions of finding and using all those individual brushes and sponges.
Swap foundation and bronzer for a tinted moisturizer
Using a product that multitasks, like a tinted moisturizer with SPF, turns three steps into one. Using one that’s a little bit darker than your skin tone. It adds a warmer glaze to your skin and makes it look better in an instant without having to do a lot. Plus, you can apply it with your fingers the way you would your moisturizer — much easier than foundation.
Use the same product for cheeks and eyes or cheeks and lips
Invest on a product that can be used on multiple areas instead of buying a bunch of individual blushes and eyeshadows. You should also go for sun-kissed colors, as you want something that has a bronzy tone to it; not an orangey or peachy shade because if you put it on your lids, it won’t look natural or put-together. On the other hand, some of world’s best makeup artists swear by using lipstick not just for the lips but also for the cheeks. Blending a little lipstick over the apples of the cheeks is the perfect way to create a rosy flush in a matter of seconds.
Get a one-step application mascara
We can all agree that mascara is that one product you can’t ever leave out in your routine. But even just several strokes on your lashes can already take up so much time. How about getting yourself a mascara that instantly adds volume, definition and length to your eyelashes in one simple application stroke? Yes, we’re not kidding!
