Don’t Have Time To Wash Your Hair?

Hit the snooze button a few too many times? And now you don’t have time to wash your hair. Dry shampoo is a miracle worker. Spray it all over, including your roots. Then blow dry. Your hair will look fresh and clean in no time. Nothing beats freshly washed hair, but this comes close. Just don’t use it too often.

Need Dramatic Eyelashes?

You have a party to go to, and your mascara just isn’t cutting it. Fake it. Create big dramatic eyes with a brand like Flutter eyelashes. They are easy to apply and will provide you with instant drama.

Feeling a Little Pasty?

Blusher is a quick way to add tone and color to your skin. If you’re in a rush, opt for a cream blusher. Swipe a small amount across your cheeks from the back to the front. Blend it into your cheekbones. You can use a makeup sponge or your fingers. This is particularly good in the winter months when your skin feels a little dull. It’s an instant pick-me-up.

What To Do With Long Hair?

Long hair presents its own challenges, especially first thing in the morning. For a quick fix sweep it back from the face and twist it into a bun at the nape of your neck. It can be secured with a couple of clips. Alternatively, create a messy bun on the top of your head. No-one will know it took the grand total of two minutes to create. You’ll look groomed and sophisticated.

Smudged Mascara?

Smudging your mascara can be a nightmare. Your eyeshadow is looking flawless, and then you slip with your mascara brush. Trying to remove it when it’s wet will make the situation worse, and you’ll have to start again. Wait until it dries and then remove it. It’s much easier to lift off once it’s dry.

Don’t Have Time For The Perfect Pout?

If you don’t have time for lip liner, ditch it. If you’re short on time, don’t worry about creating the perfect outline. Rub a little lipstick on your finger and apply. This will stain your lips and provide you with color.

Runner In Your Pantyhose?

Why do you always get a runner in your panty hose when you’re in a rush? If it’s hidden underneath your clothes, dab on a little clear nail polish. This will prevent it from running further.

Need A Flawless Base In A Hurry?

If you need a flawless base in a hurry, use a primer. This may sound like an extra step, but it is worth it. A primer will provide you with a smooth surface to apply your makeup. Get the base right and everything else will follow.
