I am certainly guilty of hitting the snooze button 1, 2…. 5 times. So what do you do if you’ve overslept and you still need to look great? Here are some quick tips to help you look your best before you head out the door. Just because you sacrificed that precious time in your beauty routine for extra sleep doesn’t mean you can’t still look great. No one will ever know you got ready in just 15 minutes with these few tips:
BE PREPARED. Have two make-up bags. One with everything, and one that is just the essentials. Your emergency bag should have things like concealer, mascara, blush, tinted moisturizer a neutral lip product, and a brow pencil. If you separate these, you aren’t spending time digging through all of those luxury products you’ve collected like 50 different lipsticks, eye shadows, liners, and highlighters, because lets face it…you don’t have time to put it on anyway.TWO-IN-ONE PRODUCTS. So many brands are offering two in one products. For instance, try to find a cream blush that you can also use on your lips, or chose a soft pink lipstick that you can also apply to your cheeks for a little added color. BB and CC creams offer light coverage with the added benefits of moisturizing and anti aging and ofter SPF. More bang for your buck and your time.
DRY SHAMPOO. Seriously ladies, what did we ever do without this miracle product? I think I have tried every single one on the market! My personal favorite for my fine, hair that I feel like i have to wash every day is the Oh Bee Hive by Bed Head. It has a matte finish which works for my hair type. How much time can you save by not washing your hair? A. Ton.
BRONZER. My go to product that I don’t think I could live without, is a good bronzer. This one product has the ability to add depth to your face by contouring and adding warmth. You can use liquid bronzers or powder bronzers and still get the same effect pretty quickly. Blend whichever type you choose onto your forehead, cheeks and jawline for an instant glow! And contrary to what some may say, bronzer can be worn year round, just change to a softer less dramatic shade in the winter.
I certainly hope these tips will save you some time for that next morning you have hit the snooze button one too many times. Bottom line, know what products work for you. Keep it simple and separate and you will look FABULOUS in no time at all!
