Hello sweeties how are you?
I know not everyone has time to do their makeup in the morning, becouse well.. it’s the morning. I know I don’t want to spend to much time on mine becouse i have to wake up everyday at 6 (!!) for school. My makeup has to be as quick as possible but also I want to look put together, so here are some tips to speed up your routine
Just becouse you have to be quick, doesn’t mean you have to leave anything out. There are 4 focus points:
Get all your makeup products ready in one place, so you don’t have to look all over the place for it and listen to some energetic music while doing your makeup, it can speed things up. Use product you can relay on, experimenting with makeup is great, but when in a rush, stick to things that work with you.
THE FACE: Look what you’re working with. How is your skin doing? Is it pretty clear, is it breaking out, do you have acne scaring?? Use products based on that. If you have pretty clear skin, skip foundation and use a BB cream or a tinted moisturizer which has a primer built in it. But if you have problematic skin, use a medium coverage foundation (full coverage foundations can be quite heavy) and ad concealer where neaded. Using concealer under your foundation can be quite time consuming and when you put a foundation over it, concealer can smir off. Don’t forget to set everything.
The quickes way to apply your foundation is by usig your hands, but this is not an option with problematic skin becouse it takes away a lot of coverage. For a fuller coverage use dense brush and dab the product in.
To create a natural glow, use a highlighter on the top of the cheek bone, down the bridge of the nose and cupid bow. Foundations can often leave your face flat, so also apply some bronzer.
I think eyebrows are really important becouse they frame the face and pull the whole look together, but if you are happy with how they are, skip this step.
Define them with an eyebrow pencil or powder, depends on what you prefer and fill in any blank spaces inbetween the hairs. Use a light hand at the front of the brow for a natural look. If you naturally have bushy brows, just tame them down with brow wax or gel, which also can be tinted.
Keeping it really simple on the eyes, just open them up with curling them and applying some mascara. If you want to look more awake, apply a nude pencil on the waterline and in the ineercorners of the eye.
Nothing says ”I’m put together” than a statement bold lipstick, so if you have minimal eye look wear a bright red or pink to make an illusion that a lot of work was put into your routine. But of course you can’t go wrong with a pretty nude.
I personally think the most important thing is focusing on your skin becouse if you have radiant, glowy, healthy skin everything else will fall into place. Hope you liked this, if you have any suggestions, leave them bellow. Sending you all my love,
