Considering that women are becoming increasingly busy, whether they’re working, raising families, or keeping up with daily routines, finding ways to save time is a constant struggle. Making the daily makeup routine faster, while still producing polished results, can go a long way for a busy woman. Here are some great tips for achieving a great look when time is short.
Use a Primer
Primer is a woman's best-kept secret. While it's not a product that many people notice, since it applies clear/skin-tone, primer makes a huge difference in the long run. Using primer helps hold all the products to the skin, making it last longer and saving you from needing to re-apply throughout the day. It works particularly well with liquid foundation and natural powder foundation, but it also works great with eyeshadows, bronzer, and others.
Use a Natural Liquid Foundation or BB Cream
One of the best ways to keep your look fresh, while also keeping your routine quick, is using liquid foundation. While MOVE foundation is a powder, you can easily apply it with water so you get a creamy consistency that soaks into your skin. This application technique will make your skin look lighter and help it glow. Unlike heavier products, liquid applications won't appear caked on or heavy—saving you from spending time fixing mistakes and having to even out your foundation periodically throughout the day.
Skip the Lipstick, Go for the Gloss
While most women believe that red lipstick makes their teeth look whiter and is a quick and classic trick, it's quite the opposite. Red lipstick is sticky, messy, and somehow always finds a way to leave a pink smear on your front teeth. Instead of checking your lips for smudges every 5 minutes, try using a pink or nude gloss. The gloss will make you look fresh-faced and polished, and you won't have to worry about the mess. Instead of the bright lipsticks, try a teeth whitening process, and then gloss over your lips before you go. Even better? You can slip your lip gloss right in your pocket and reapply in seconds--no mirror necessary. Check out these how-to videos for more instructions on applying lip gloss and other makeup on the go.
There are many quick tricks to making your daily makeup routine faster, while still getting excellent results, including trying natural looking products, like liquid foundation and BB creams, nude lip gloss, and using a primer to keep everything together throughout the day. Your beauty routine doesn't need to be lengthy and complicated to be effective; keep these tricks up your sleeve, and you'll stay looking good even in a rush.
