Everyone loves a good sleep in don’t they? From the time my alarm goes off in the morning to the time I actually manage to get myself out of bed, somehow, I’m always left with only 10 minutes to get myself ready and out the door. So, in keeping with the theme of this post, here is a quick rundown of a couple beauty bits I like to use when I’m in a hurry but still want to look presentable.
First things first, taming the awful bed hair. For this, I enjoy using the Batiste Dry Shampoo for Brunette Hair which provides texture and volume to my unruly locks. This is quick and easy and great for second day hair when your roots start to look a tad oily.
In terms of makeup bits I like to keep it simple cause let’s be honest, when you’re in a rush, ain’t nobody got (much) time for that! A bit of the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer under the eyes and on my blemishes always makes me look more awake (cause I’m still usually half asleep at this point) and because I am an oily girl, I always have to set my face with a transparent powder or the Sephora Mineral Powder Foundation which I love. A quick curl of your lashes followed by generous amounts of Maybelline “The Falsies” mascara – or any mascara of your choice – will transform your whole face, opening your eyes and making them look more defined. Finally to pull the makeup look all together, use a nude lip colour or lip balm. I enjoy using the Clairns Instant Natural Light Lip Perfector in Nude which acts as a lip balm and gloss all in one and gives a hint of colour to the lips.
If you have any other makeup tips and tricks for those rushed mornings, please let me know!
