It can take a long time to get ready in the morning when you count the whole routine, including hair, nails, makeup and getting dressed. On top of that, you’re usually still sleepy, have to rush to beat traffic and need to put together a bagged lunch. To help you save time in the morning, we’ve put together some tips on how to put makeup on faster.
The first tip is to keep your skin clean. This will make your makeup routine simpler. Also, check out Natural Treatments for Skin Spots.
The second step is keeping your makeup supplies organized. If your supplies are neat and tidy, it’s easy to find what you need right away. De-clutter your makeup drawer, and throw away anything expired and anything you never use.
Next, start equipping yourself with multipurpose makeup products. These can tackle multiple areas of the face. Applying makeup with these products will make your routine faster. Try the following products:
-Tinted Moisturizer: These can be used to moisturize your face and as a foundation. Buy one that includes SPF for sun protection. A BB cream would be a great choice.
-Eye-and-Cheek Color or Cheek-and-Lip Color: These products make your morning routine faster by allowing you to color more areas of your face in fewer motions. You don’t have to open and apply multiple products for the same effects.
-The Multiple by Nars: This product tackles the eyes, cheeks, lips and body all at once. You apply the product from the stick with your fingers to add color to your face.
-Eyebrow Gel & Mascara: Having a tube of this in your arsenal will mean you can fluff your eye lashes and set your eye brows with the same mascara wand.
Now, decide whether or not you want to use foundation. If you use a tinted moisturizer, chances are you won’t need it. Also, keep your makeup simple. The less complicated your look is, the less time it will take to apply it.
When you’re ready to start putting on your makeup, remember these tips:
-Use a stick foundation as concealer and foundation. A stick form is faster to apply. You can also blend it on your eyelids. Now you’re ready to go!
-Save time on your eyes by freezing your eye pencil, so it won’t break and will go on smoothly. You can even skip the eyeliner and just use mascara in the morning. Lastly, use a powdery eye pencil instead of liquid eyeliner. The liquid version can take way more time to apply.
-For your lips, buy an all-in-one lipstick. Forget about using lip liner before lipstick and a bunch of different products to color your lips.
-If you also like to touch up your nails before work, invest in a speed drying nail polish or a stick-on manicure.
-Use your hair dryer to heat your lash curler before using it.
-Spray hairspray onto a clean mascara stick to style your eyebrows.
With these tricks up your sleeve, you can save time in the morning and look fabulous!
