When you’re strapped for time each morning, you need your beauty and makeup routine to be quick, easy and effective. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything sometimes. And if you’ve overslept, something has to give. Get yourself organized and ready for the day with these easy makeup hacks:
Everything To Hand
Use a makeup brush holder and a cosmetics case that has everything you need in one place. That way, you’re not searching drawers or makeup bags for those little bits and pieces you’re looking for. It’s worth the investment to have a good quality case to hand. Organization makes life first thing in the morning so much easier. If you don’t have the space for a large case, why not restock it each night before bed so everything is to hand in the morning.
Improve Your Application Skills
Getting quicker and more accurate with your makeup application will help shave off valuable minutes. This is essential first thing in the morning! You could attend a makeup course to learn how the professionals get it right first time every time. If you can spare some time at the weekend, you can always get some practice. Check out some handy YouTube tutorials or find other guides that may help you become a pro with the makeup.
Pick Quality Cosmetics
When you’re shopping for new cosmetics, be sure to pick makeup that is high in quality. That way it is less likely to let you down when you are in a rush. You should also buy quality applicators and brushes. Of course, NYX products already come with easy to use applicators. This makes life easy while you are on the go too. Pick makeup products you can use quickly and easily. Packs that provide all-in-one cosmetics can be the best to go for as everything is one place.
Keeping your skin clear will help reduce the need for extra makeup. Covering blemishes and other skin marks take up valuable time in the mornings. Instead, stick to a rigid beauty routine that works for you. There are plenty of good beauty hacks to help you with this too. The more you do the same thing each day, the quicker and more efficiently you’ll be able to get it done. Get plenty of sleep and drink lots of water too. Perhaps you could head to bed thirty minutes early?
The Right Equipment
As well as good quality cosmetics and applicators, it is important to have the right light and mirror too. The better you can see your skin, the quicker and easier it will be to apply the makeup. Choose a magnifying mirror with a surround light. This helps you get very close to the area you are working on. The light will help highlight what needs to be done when you are working in finer details. With this level of visibility, eye liner should be even easier!
You shouldn’t rush your makeup. But when you’re running late, it’s easy to make mistakes. Try these easy makeup hacks to make your life easier tomorrow morning.
