10 Useful beauty tips and tricks for hectic mornings
When you forget to set the alarm, or you pressed the snooze button a few times too many, you don’t always have time for the full beauty regime. So, don’t panic, and don’t try to just do everything faster, read these ten time saving beauty tips and tricks that will help you get ready, on hectic mornings:
1. Replace foundation and bronzer with a tinted moisturiser
You can combine two jobs into one, with a tinted moisturiser, in place of foundation and bronzer. Choose a tint that is slightly darker than your own skin tone, to give you a warmer looking complexion quickly.
2. Don’t spend too long on your lips
You can spend an age on your lips with lip balm, primer, lipstick and gloss. Save time and get an all-in-one, multi-tasking product. Look round the beauty counters and you will find that you can buy moisturising, colouring balms that are perfect for those hectic mornings.
3. Invest in a shower cap
When you barely have any time at all to get ready in the morning, then drying wet hair is the last thing you want to be doing. The simplest solution is to buy a shower cap. It might not be the most glamorous looking accessory in your wardrobe, but it sure will save you some time.
4. Use a dry shampoo
Like we said, you don’t want wet hair on busy mornings, so if your hair is looking a little greasy, use a dry shampoo and that will soon fix the problem. If you have no dry shampoo, then a light dusting of baby powder will do the job too.
5. Moisturise while you shower
Another way to cut out a step in your morning beauty routine is to moisturise in the shower. Rather than shower, dry and then moisturise, you can use an in-shower body lotion and get the two jobs done, in half the time.
6. Have some wipes to hand
Always have some makeup wipes to hand and that way you can quickly correct any mistakes. They are also good for removing any makeup or deodorant that might get on your clothes.
7. Don’t waste time on eyeliner
Eyeliner can be fiddly and time consuming, so skip it on the busy mornings. Two coats of mascara will give you all the definition and volume that you need.
8. Get a clear makeup bag
To speed up finding what you need, make up a kit of all the essentials and keep them in a clear makeup bag. That way you will be able to see what you need, and get to it a lock quicker.
9. Keep your brows neat and tidy
Don’t try and pluck your brows when you are in a rush, that will take time and it can easily turn into a disaster. Keep your brows well groomed though, just do it when you do have some time. Neat brows not only look great, but they will need less makeup in the mornings too.
10. Keep it simple
You can be beautiful with just the bare minimum of makeup, so when the morning is a hectic one, don’t try and over complicate things. If you are really in a rush, you can get away with just some lipstick and still look great
