The beauty boosting power of makeup has conquered the hearts of women since ancient times, so no wonder that today makeup has become a definite must have for the ladies that care about their physical appearance. The modern woman has plenty of options nowadays when it comes to makeup, but unfortunately time, more specifically the lack of time, affects the beauty routine and forces women to skip makeup application. Fortunately, this has pushed makeup artists to put together speedy makeup tips for on-the-go girls, so we can look oh-so-fabulous even when we don’t have too much time on our hands.
It’s true that women are beautiful with or without makeup, but if you wish to be even more beautiful, especially when you’re in a hurry, you have to make sure to bring out the ‘big guns’ in your makeup kit. Essential makeup products – concealer, foundation, blush/bronzer, mascara and lipstick/lipgloss – are all you need to get ready in a jiffy in the morning, so find out how to cut down your makeup application time and still look fabulous.
Mastering the art of makeup is definitely not easy, but the steps are super easy to follow and can be learned easily even by makeup newbies. The products that you’ll always have to have on standby are the ones mentioned above, plus an eyeliner pencil and a blush brush.
With these products you’ll be able to recreate some super fab looks in seconds or minutes depending on the look you’re aiming for, so you can look great from day to evening regardless of how much time you’ve got on your hands.
1. Go Au Naturel
The first look that we propose is the easiest to achieve and takes less than a minute to create. The ‘au naturel’ look does involve makeup, just less of it, so make sure you moisturize, apply a bit of blush on your cheekbones and coat your eyelashes using mascara. Optionally a nude/ soft berry-pink colored lip gloss applied on the lips can help boost sensuality, and make your fuss-free makeup look effortless, fresh and feminine. This girl-next-door type of look suits all occasions, so spare less than a minute to accentuate your natural beauty.
2. Focus on the Eyes
Makeup can help emphasize and conceal certain features that we feel more or less confident about, and one of the features that women like to make stand out is the eyes. Obviously, defining the eyes can totally change your appearance, so allow yourself 5 minutes in the morning to make your peepers look mesmerizing. Conceal imperfections using concealer and apply foundation to even out skin. Use an eyeliner pencil in your desired shade and draw a line across the lash line. To soften the line, smudge it with a Q-tip. Another great way to get the perfect flick is by turning towards Mily’s Eye Flashes as these sticker eyeliners deliver a perfectly symmetrical eye contour. To finish the look, coat the eyelashes with a black mascara and get your lips looking fab with a nude lip gloss or lipstick.
3. The Perfect Sensual Lips
If you’re really in a hurry and don’t have too much time on your hands, not even a minute to spare to slather some makeup on, make sure you turn towards your most trusted makeup item: the lipstick. It’s just amazing how much a hint of color can transform your look, so grab on to your favorite lip color shade, whether it’s red, orange or pink, and get your lips looking fabulous. You can try to make your skin look radiant by applying a tinted moisturizer, a touch of face powder and voila! A stylish look with just two strokes of lip color. Invest in high quality products, make sure you style your hair into place and get ready to look amazing without putting in barely any effort!
