It’s inevitable: the morning you oversleep is the day you have someplace important to be. Fortunately, there are plenty of short-cuts to your morning beauty routine that will have you out the door looking great and feeling confident in no time. Here are a few beauty tips to help you out.
7 Time-Saving Beauty Tips for Busy Mornings
Tip #1: Throw your hair in a bun before showering and skip the wash. If your hair looks dirty and you don’t have time for a full wash and blow-dry, you can give your top roots and crown a quick wash in the sink. Freshening up this most visible part of your hair helps create the illusion of clean hair.
Tip #2: Make the shower work for you with a quick scrub to your face and body. Shorten shave time with a razor that has moisturizer and shaving cream built in.
Tip #3: When you don’t have time for your regular body butter routine, use a moisturizer that locks in hydration before you even step out of the shower. A wet skin moisturizer is applied at your skin’s peak moisture moment – right after you shower. After applying all over, towel off and you’ll have luminous skin all day long.
Tip #4: Let moisturizer soak in while you choose an outfit for the day. Save time on color coordinating by selecting a one-piece such as a dress or romper, and set it aside while you apply makeup to avoid smudges and stains.
Tip #5: You don’t need much makeup for a finished look. Apply makeup in a location with plenty of natural light, and use a powder foundation for a smooth base. Add some color definition to your brows with a matching shadow. Save time and avoid mistakes by placing a piece of paper or index card behind your lashes as you apply mascara. Finish with some lip balm and a setting spray.
Tip #6: If you have long hair, a messy bun or side braid are pretty options. Or twist and pin back your bangs and short layers for a softer look.
Tip #7: Add clothes, some fun accessories and a spritz of perfume or body spray, and you’re ready to go.
