This time of year we are always on go mode. Looking your best is tough when you are constantly on the move. You can look perfect without feeling rushed. Speed up your routine and get out the door faster for the impending warmer weather outdoor event season. Eliminate stress by utilizing these five time saving tips to look fabulous faster.
1. Consolidate Your Lotion
Eliminate the time consuming routine of showering, drying off, lotioning & waiting for the lotion to be completely absorbed before you can finally get dressed. Opt for an in-shower moisturizer like Olay Ultra Moisture In Shower Body Lotion.
Lather up with your usual body cleanser, apply a hydrating in-shower formula & let the warmth & humidity of the shower open your pores- allowing more of the products nourishing ingredients to absorb better.
2. Upgrade Your Foundation to a Multi-Tasker
Ditch your single function foundation for an over achiever that targets your specific skincare needs & provides you with the coverage you need. You will end up eliminating so many steps in your make-up routine – won’t know what to do with all of your extra time! Try Physicians Formula Super BB All-In-1 Beauty Balm Cream. The hydrating glycerin, antioxidants vitamin C & E brighten & protect skin from free radicals which cause premature aging. Luxsil powder leaves a soft focus effect with a luminous finish, SPF 30 shields you from harmful rays & white willowbark extract helps to control oil.
3. Eliminate Redeye
Instead of lining tired, red eyes with black or red based browns (the later makes eyes appear more red) swap out your regular liner for a nice cool tone navy blue. The blue counteracts any redness that may be present in tired eyes & provides you with a more awake look. Simply sweep liner around the upper & lower lash lines for a summery, fresh look.
4. Sleep On It & Forget It Hair
Stop wasting precious time on your hair! The night before your event, utilize damp after shower locks by braiding them to create easy, natural looking waves. 2 braids create loose waves, 4 gives medium waves & 6 braided sections create tighter waves. Sleep on it, wake up & hit hair with heat from a blow dryer or run a flat iron over each braid. Unravel & lock in with hairspray.
5. Best Brows In Less Time
Mixing pencils & powders to fill in sparse spots in eyebrows can be time consuming, as well as create the very real option of looking like Mommy Dearest. Instead try colored brow mascara. This saves tons of time, just swipe the bristle brush over tiny hairs & brows look immediately fuller. Be sure to wipe the brush down a bit to avoid over applying the formula on brows.
