The clock is ticking and you need to be out the door soon. So how do you get ready fast and still look amazing?
Here are 10 last-minute beauty tips to make you look like the knockout you are:
1. Combat puffy eyes
Do you suffer from dark or puffy bags under your eyes? Eye masks are the easiest solution. Just place them underneath your eyes and they’ll work their magic as you’re brushing your teeth or fixing your hair.
2. Bump up the volume
Hair looking flat? Add some volume with your new BFF: dry shampoo. Dry shampoo is great at giving your hair a quick pick-me-up. Just spray in your hair and brush through for some extra oomph.
3. White eyeliner
This will be your life-saver when it comes to getting ready in the morning. If you are one who runs on few hours of sleep every day, white eyeliner will help make your eyes more alert and awake. Just apply the white pencil on your waterline and presto, your eyes will appear bigger and brighter.
4. Easy updos
Here’s a little secret: pull your hair up to look red carpet worthy! These deceivingly simple updos will make people will think you spent hours on your hair, when in reality, it will only take you 20 minutes or less.
5. Colorful lipstick
A pop of color can pull your whole outfit together and make it look like you took the time to get ready in the morning (even if you didn’t). For color that stays all day and night, try a lip stain instead of lipstick.
6. Quick mani
Don’t have your nails painted? No problem! All natural nails look gorgeous if you use a buffer. Buffing your nails doesn’t take much time and can make your nails really shine.
A little mascara goes a long way. Applying a few layers can both thicken and lengthen those lashes, which draws attention to your gorgeous eyes.
8. Make your skin glow
Sometimes all your skin needs is a light scrub. Use an exfoliator to brush away dead skin and help your skin look radiant. People will be complementing your healthy glow throughout the day.
9. Conceal blemishes
If you don’t have time to apply all of your makeup, use concealer to hide those blemishes-acne, scars, whatever. Then just apply a light powder all over. Your face will look natural and beautiful!
If you want to hide your half-done hair and smudged eyeliner, accessorizing with a colorful necklace or bracelet will divert attention to your neckline and your wrist instead of your face.
