Time Saving Beauty Tips
When it comes to focusing on how to better manage our time, we often forget that time is wasted in doing the most fundamental tasks. Although I love when I have time to do a full out hairstyle or make up look, nine times out of ten, I usually have about 30 minutes to an hour to get ready and be out of the door. Check out these amazing time saving makeup tips when you are low on time.
Set out your makeup the night before.
I know if I don't have my products out the night before, I will be fumbling around looking for products in my makeup bag or drawer. Prepare for your day the night before. Have your products out in front of you, so that you are ready to go.
Repurpose your products.
You do not need separate products for each part of your makeup routine. To save time, use a cream blush to create a complete makeup look. It can used as a blush, lipstick, or even eyeshadow! Tarte Cheek Stain in Sheer Berry, $30.
Buy two in one products.
When I am rushing out of door, I use products such as BB Cremes as a foundation. They give you the coverage of a light foundation, with the protection of spf, and a face primer to keep oil to a minimum. You don't need precision with applying a BB creme so go ahead and use your hands to blend in this product to save time! Iman Cosmetics BB Créme in Medium Deep, $20.
Do quick hairstyles.
Straight hair-- Invest in a dry shampoo, to prolong your wash. Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush, $7.99.
Curly hair--Use a great leave in conditioner to keep your curls hydrated and perky for that wash n go. DevaCurl One Condition, $20.
Kinky hair--Use protective styling. When I'm pressed on time, I do a quick halo twist or braid that takes only 5 min.
