Simple Beauty Tips for When You Hit The Snooze Button Too Many Times

September 25th, 2017 at 1:06am

We are all guilty of it—hitting that snooze button one too many times. Sadly, there’s no going back, and now you have to get ready as quickly as you can. Instead of rushing and stressing about how to pull yourself together while still getting to class on time, follow these simple beauty tips to get you looking flawless fast.

Start your day off right by hopping in the shower and quickly washing the sleepiness away. If you’re short on time, skip the shampoo and try to keep your hair as dry as possible. Wash your face with your favorite cleanser to create a clean canvas to work from. After your shower, be sure to apply a moisturizer or a face serum to hydrate and keep your skin glowing. Add a few sprays of dry shampoo and throw that mane up into a chic ponytail or a top knot. Voilà—effortless glam achieved!

When it comes to makeup, a quick and natural look is perfect when you are racing against the clock. Start with applying primer all over your face to keep your makeup looking fresh all day. On days when I have little to no time, I opt for a BB cream instead of dealing with foundation and blending. This not only moisturizes the skin, but it smooths away any imperfections and is easily applied with your fingers. If you need a little more coverage, you can always add a bit of concealer. For the eyes, it is best to grab a light neutral shade and place it in the crease of your lid to add a bit of dimension.

Grab your favorite highlighter to add some quick finishing touches. Place the highlighter on the cheekbones, nose, brow bone, and your inner eye. Add a bit of mascara to finish off the eyes, and you’re done! One of the best and most simple beauty tips is applying a lipstick or gloss. That pop of color will really polish off your natural look.
