It’s 08.45am and you have to dash out to your 09.00am lecture PRONTO. You may be in rush, but have no fear; there is still plenty of time to create a fab, fresh-faced makeup look. Here’s my top beauty tips for girls in a rush:
- Moisturise and apply sun protection
You can’t build anything on bad foundations, so don’t forget to care for your skin!
2. Time is of the essence!
When I’m in a rush, I usually put 3 up-tempo songs on a playlist. I then have to use those 9-10 minutes to finish my makeup and get out the door- sharpish!
3. Start with what matters most to you:
I suffer from uneven, blemished skin, so concealer and foundation are a must for me! Dusting off my nose with a little powder helps to hide the grease on my pesky T-zone.
4. Eyes on the prize
A dusting of champagne eyeshadow will instantly brighten up sleepy eyelids, whilst a quick lashing of mascara will open up your eyes and make you seem more awake.
5. Distract the eye
Opt for a bold lip colour. This will distract the eye from imperfections and give your makeup are more ‘finished’ look.
6. Smell fresh, feel fresh
So, you didn’t get up early enough to shower this morning? No problem! A quick spritz of body spray will leave you smelling fresher than your morning coffee.
7. Be disciplined
Undoubtedly, punctuality and eating a healthy breakfast are much more important than having beautifully contoured cheeks, so stick to your time limit! It’s also great to embrace having makeup-free days regularly. Makeup can dry out the skin and clog pores, whilst parabens in your favourite products can even break down collagen, making you age prematurely. This means that having a couple of makeup-free days per week can be great for your skin!
I hope that you enjoyed my post and I’d love to hear your tips for busy mornings. Until next time!
