You’re a busy woman, but you still want to look your best. There’s no reason to let your beauty routine go to the wayside – with a few minor adjustments, you’ll have all the time you need!
Follow these time-saving tips to get out the door as quickly (and beautifully) as possible:
1. Use multi-purpose products: Cut your primping time in half by using products that do double-duty, such as a super-hydrating cleanser, tinted moisturizer or tinted lip balm.
2. Stick to the basics: If you’re in a serious rush, spend your few precious minutes on a few simple steps – a dab of concealer, a swipe of mascara, a brush of blush and one coat of tinted lip balm. You’re done!
Skip the shower: If your hair doesn’t need a thorough washing every day, you can save time by skipping your morning shower. Instead, use a dry shampoo to absorb oil and try a facial cleansing cloth to freshen up your complexion.
4. Get creative: No need to spend extra time searching for the perfect shade of shadow. If you have fair skin, a bronzy blush can double as eye shadow, while a rosy hue works for darker complexions.
5. Go for the tousled look: Forget the hair dryer or flat iron. Use a texturizing spray on damp hair, then twist into a bun while you’re getting ready. Release, finger-comb and voila – beautiful, wavy locks!
