In a perfect reality, we'd all wake up well-rested and with enough time to go about our morning routine without panic. Sadly, that's not how everyone's mornings go. Often times, we wake up to our alarm and hit snooze until we can't anymore and then speed run through everything from eating to applying makeup. For those rushed days, here are some makeup tips from the pros to help you get it all together as quick as possible.
First off, you need to prioritize. What features are people going to notice when you don't wear makeup? You can skip blush if you already have rosy and defined cheeks. You can ditch the mascara if you have naturally long and dark lashes. Think about what area of your face that you don't want to go without makeup and start there.
Get a head start on the next day by cleansing your face the night before. Get all of the previous makeup and dirt off and be sure to moisturize before bed so you have a clean base so you won't have to do it in the busy and rushed mornings.
For those nights where you just don't get enough sleep, you might have to give some extra attention to your eyes. Dark circles will make you look tired even if you're not, so grab some concealer and set it with translucent powder to look awake and alert.
When you're on a time crunch and need to brighten up a dull complexion use bronzer. Brush your bronzer across areas that would typically be hit by the sun, so your forehead, cheeks, chin, and even your eyelids.
For your lips look for tinted balms that give you a bit of color, moisturizer, and sunscreen all in one. Don't forget to take it with you for reapplying throughout the day!
Brows can be essential for some people, and they can't afford to skip it. So, add dots of your brow liner in thin areas. You may not be able to perfect them like you want, but you can at least make them a bit fuller and even.
Lastly, curled lashes look fuller even without the use of mascara. At least do this if you don't have the time to mess around with mascara.
