If your makeup routine takes over an hour and you don’t have as much time on your hands as Beyonce or Kim Kardashian do, you may probably want some time-saving tricks. A long and tedious beauty routine can only do two things: get you late for work in the morning, and keep you awake late in the night to scrub it all off. The Brunette Diaries understand the importance of your time and hence we bring to you these super quick time savers that work really well. Oh, and you’re welcome.
If you are in a hurry and have no time for a hair wash, use some dry shampoo instead. Spray some at the roots and then blow dry to get a volume.
You should never… and we mean never… skip this step. Use a lighter, water-based formula that will absorb into your skin faster, saving the precious 2 minutes.
Combine concealer and moisturiser:
Combine your moisturizer with a little concealer on your hands to make a tinted formula. And you won’t be needing foundation or base makeup.
Choose chemical-free products that you can also use on the sensitive areas of your face. For instance, a lip colour on your cheeks for blush or a shimmery eye shadow as a contourer or highlighter.
Prefer cream formulas:
Try using cream formulas for your makeup routine, since they’re way easier to blend. Use your fingers to speed up the blending further.
Highlight your best features:
If you don’t have more than 5 minutes to get ready, just use some concealer, some mascara, and a touch of blush. You’ll look completely fresh in no time.
Swap cleanser for wipes:
Throw away the cleanser gel; instead, pick some makeup removing wipes. They sweep away the grime, dirt, oil, and even heavy-duty waterproof mascara.
