You know this days when you simply don’t have time (or can’t be bothered) to stand in front of the mirror for an hour, trying to achieve this perfect look. Luckily, there are some simple tricks to save your time and still look perfect.
1. Stick to the basics
Mascara, lipgloss/lipstick and a little bit of concealer and some blush or bronzer can do miracles. If 5 minutes it’s all you’ve got, going for simple basic products without experimenting with eyeshadows or contouring is your best bet.
2. Red lipstick
Even without full make up, this little lady can help you a lot. It’s the all time classic, so you can go wrong with that, and she will brighten up your eyes, making you look more awake.
3. Use BB cream
It gives you light, natural coverage and you can apply it with your fingers in a matter of seconds 😉
4. Have priorities
If you absolutely can go out without applying mascara, don’t spend ages doing your eyebrows, or skip foundation when your skin have a good day (skin needs some rest from time to time) and focus on your perfect line if eyeliner is a must. Just don’t waste time on things that you can live without, and you’ll be fine.
5. Carry essential kit
Try to keep in your handbag your tried favourites. You can always do your make up on a way to school/work for example on a train, bus etc. But never when driving!
6 Apply lipstick before blush
Yes, that can save some time. Applying lipstick first, gives you reference point to how much blush do you need. Lighter shade of lipstick lighter blush. Saves you lightening up your blush to get that natural look.
7. Prepare your skin day before
Regular and good skin care can help you a lot. Moisturized, smooth skin makes applying make up easier, looking vibrant and healthy.
8. Double up !
You can apply a bit of lipstick on your cheeks and blend it nicely with your fingers using it as a blush, or use eyeshadow instead of eyeliner. Easy:)
