If you ever felt like the White Rabbit from the Alice in Wonderland, who is always “Late, late, for a very important date!” or if you simply don’t like spending too much time on beautification, your makeup process may go much easier than you think. With the following advice you’ll see that beauty doesn’t always require a lot of time and that all you need is good organisation and just a little of practice to gain a skill of creating the perfect makeup look in less than 10 minutes.
Less is more
Yes, we all know this phrase so well, but it’s true. Save extravagant makeup for special occasions and keep more natural look for daily situations. Discover your best features and use makeup tips to enhance them and show your inner beauty as well. With right products, you won’t need much time for that.
Multipurpose cosmetic products can be very helpful for this busy situations, so try to find the ones that respond to the most of your needs.
Setting the base
Instead of using several different makeup products, choose one that has moisturizing ingredients and SPF factor or try BB creams with pigments – this way you’ll save your time and your money. But, if you have only basic foundation, mix it with moisturizing cream you usually use and make unique, custom made tined moisturizer. For a glowing effect, add some highlighter into the mix.
Whichever foundation you want to use, apply it evenly all over your face – from its centre to the eyelids and then blend it to cover up border lines. Once you finished this, apply a little bit of concealer on the dark circles under your eyes and put face powder if you have a problematic skin (where is most needed) for a porcelain-like finish.
If you know how to properly use it, highlighter can be the most important item when you want to make a quick makeup transformation. Apply it on recommended areas, like cheekbones, nose, corners of the eyes, brow bones and cupid’s bow and you’ll look fresh and natural.
Finish your base with a blusher to gain some healthy color on your face and you’ll be almost done. Apply mascara and some natural lipstick to accent your lips and you’re finished.
Spice it a little bit
If the described plain look doesn’t satisfy you, you can bring it on a level up with some daring, different and more creative approach for enhanced makeup.
- The simplest way to secure an effective appearance is by applying an eyeliner along your upper lash line. For a softer look, smudge it with a small brush. Black is the most common choice for an eyeliner, but you can experiment with other colors as well – it will take you the same amount of time to apply it as it would for the classic black one, but it will create an unusual look.
- Applying a lip balm or a lip gloss is the quickest way to finish your lips. They will moisture and protect them and also add some color to them; depending on your preferences: choose some neutral shades, or bold ones. If you use a lip gloss or a lipstick, make sure that they’re made from all natural ingredients that will prevent your lips from dehydration and keep your overall mouth healthy.
- Good organisation is half job done, so it would be good to keep your makeup cosmetics neat and tidy so you don’t need to waste your time by looking for them. This advice will enable you to sleep some more in the morning and to go out with your friends right after your work shift is over or to be prepare for any unplanned situation that demands a flawless look.
