Waking up early for work can be a hassle, especially if you are not a morning person like me. I try to absorb as much sleep as I can before I have to wake up and prepare for my day. I try to carve out one hour for my routine. In this time would include makeup application for approximately 25 minutes. Typically, a neutral face is ideal for the workplace. If you want to add a little personality to your look, try a bolder lip and a winged eye. Anyway, this post is intended for a quick routine. So, if you are pressed for time and looking for a quick 15-minute look, then this post is for you!
When you pressed for time applying your makeup, use products that require less prep and easy application. Aim for using a palette with similar colors such as the BECCA Ombre Nudes Eye Palette. This palette is great for not only your eyes, but is capable for much more such as eyebrows, contouring and highlighting, etc. That way, you are not going through multiple products, which could be timely. Avoid techniques that require time such as winged eyeliner, false lashes, highlighting and contouring. The goal is to keep it simple. Next, try and use a foundation stick, it is super easy to use, and a little goes a long way for coverage. I would recommend Make Up For Ever’s Ultra HD Invisible Color Stick Foundation. It is worth every dollar and the coverage lasts all day! Lastly, if you are running out of time, apply your mascara and lipstick in the car during your commute. Typically, I do this in between red lights and never while I am driving – it is too dangerous. Safety first!
