We’ve all been there, woken up to the realization that we’ve only got 30 minutes until we’re supposed to be out the door, on the way to work or our next class. Mornings (and sometimes afternoons or evenings) like this are the worst and they are also when time is the most important. Having these tips on how to do quick, easy and beautiful makeup can really come in handy.
Tips on Everyday Glam In A Rush
Keep it organized. This is the first and very most important step! Keep the makeup area organized. We do not have time to be looking all over the place for that bronzer we used two days ago or the setting spray that “I could of swore I had here yesterday”.
Have a quick face routine. Yes, foundation and contour is great for glam makeup, but that takes more time than we’ve got. Opts for a BB Cream and a nice bronzer. BB Cream can be very Hydrating, but also matte, so pick the best for your individual skin. Bronzer is great because it doesn’t have to be too precisely placed; a quick dust around the face will do. I recommend the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream and the Physcian’s Formula Butter Bronzer- They are both amazing!
Less IS more. YES. Don’t worry about eye liner- you don’t have the time. Put on some mascara on your top and bottom lashes and move on. Skip the eye shadow- that will be for another day and do not even attempt the lip liner- we don’t want wonky shaped lips! Add some nice lip gloss.
Skip Any time consuming brow routine Brow pomade is too time consuming! WE GOTTA GO! use a tinted brow gel and get to gettin’.
Spray the face with some setting spray real quick to seal the deal and go get dressed!
What are your quick makeup tips?
I had a bit of a freak out moment because I had done this beautiful eye makeup look, I was in Miami, on the way to a birthday dinner with my boyfriend and my eye decided to start watering like crazyy. I legit had a big spot on the side of my eye from where my concealer had wiped off from the tears and I didn’t bring my concealer with me to fix it! The gps ended up taking us to the wrong place when were on the way to his moms house and luckily the place we ended up was literally right by a walgreens! We ran inside and I bought my fav concealer *Maybelline Fit Me* in the shade sand and I fixed my eye right up! Since this is my fave concealer I decided it deserved a review!
This concealer is a great price and honestly is a great dupe for some of the more popular high end concealers. This concealer is super creamy and blends out like a dream. I like to put a decently light amount on because the coverage is quite nice. I would actually describe the coverage as medium to full coverage if you build it up.
I really like the applicator on this concealer, I think I generally like the skinny wands because it feels satisfying when I apply it as well as I feel like I can control how much goes on my eye area. I always seem to put too much on with a squeezy tube, so this is nice packaging.
Overall, I really like this concealer and it is def my fave at the moment (and has been for about two years now)!
Have you tried the FitMe Concealer?
It seems that most people use foundation these days, but I personally have always been a BB cream girl. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I really REALLY want to branch out and be a part of the foundation crew, but my skin is UBER sensitive. I could literally apply a foundation at 8AM and be breaking out by the end of the day. I don’t know what it is, but the heavy cream products clog my pores up so easily! I have tried a few different foundations such as Smashbox studioskin and the LOreal True match (which at the time, I thought would work because so many people said it’s great) but neither of these seemed to work with my skin. Honestly, I have never tried a foundation that didn’t irritate my skin and this really halted my testing them out. I can’t be spending my whole paycheck on foundations, even though I do really want to find one that works! I like the idea of foundation because sometimes I want a full glam look and I want my foundation to cover EVERYthing. Anyways, my ride or die product is the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream! I have worn this pretty much everyday for years now and it never breaks me out. The coverage is pretty light and the product goes on quickly, so it is great for everyday use. I thank God that my skin is pretty much always clear because I can get away with wearing this BB cream, even when I do glam looks. One con to the BB Cream team is that if I am breaking out, the world will have to see it for a while, cause me trying to put a full coverage foundation on will more likely than not cause more break outs!
So, are you the BB cream or Foundation type?
