If your days tend to feel like a frenzied blur of juggling the multitude of obligations of work, family and making sure you don’t forget to feed the cat, you are not alone. So much to do and not enough hours in the day to do it, can have you desperately seeking ways to simplify your life. Despite our busy schedules, we know you still want to look your best as you navigate the craziness of your days. And you can! We’ve rounded up some easy makeup tips to help you maximize your time and look good doing it!
The eyes have it – The eyes may be the window to the soul but they are also the focal point of your face and reflect your lack of sleep more than any other feature. To achieve a well-rested look without layers of shadow, liner and more, apply a light concealer under your eyes and to your eyelids and dab with translucent powder. Apply a touch of mascara and you’ll look like you got more than the 4 hours of sleep you actually did.
Don’t get lippy – Or do! But you don’t need the multi-layers of lip liner, gloss and lipstick. Pick a good product that combines all 3, so that with a quick swipe in the morning you’ll be smile-ready in no time.
Sun-kissed in seconds – Well, self-tanner takes seconds to apply but actually develops over several hours. But if you apply it the night before, by morning you’ll look like you just got back from the beach.
Now you see it, now you don’t – Talk about quick and effective! There is nothing like a good concealer stick to “erase” the fatigue or other blemishes from your face. Dab in on over dark circles or red spots then gently smooth it in and you’ll look rested and unblemished in seconds!
Bolstered by bronzer – Another quick way to get a more sun-kissed look is to apply a sweep of bronzer across your cheeks. Use a make-up brush to contour the bronzer over your cheekbones, forehead and lightly over your eyelids and nose for an overall warm blush look.
Life can often feel like it’s moving at a frantic pace. Keeping it together while you put your best face forward may sometimes feel like a tall order.
