We are all guilty of pushing some parts of our beauty routine to the side when life gets too stressful. It’s definitely far easier to ignore your skincare than your makeup routine. Skincare will help your skin look better in the long run. But we often don’t have time to waste moisturizing and prepping in the mornings.
If you’re anything like me the thought of turning up to the office completely bare faced is unnerving. So if I find myself with only five minutes to spare I’m far more likely to slap on some foundation than I am moisturizer!
Luckily for us, our cosmetics are now smarter than ever. The market is flooded with multi-tasking wonders designed to not only beautify, but care for our skin too. Saving time and gaining you a few more precious minutes of sleep in the morning!
#1 PRIMER THAT DOUBLES AS AN SPF
Sun protection is one of the easiest things to forget about when rushing to get ready. But it’s definitely the most important element of your skincare routine. Protect, brighten and prep your skin with the Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12 Hour Primer. It has built in SPF 30 and will subtly perfect your skin with just a hint of a tint. It also ensures your foundation stays
#2 BASE THAT HYDRATES
Achieve perfect skin in a flash with the Dior Water BB Moisturizing Tinted Aqua Gel. This light, water-based formula can be applied with your fingertips. Smoothing over imperfections and providing a luminous finish. This is the perfect solution for dehydrated skin types. The formula contains mallow to boost moisture, meaning your base will look dewy and fresh all day long even if you skipped the moisturizer.
#3 NOURISH WHILE COVERING UP
No time for an elaborate make-up routine? Perricone MD was created by dermatologist and nutritionist Dr. Perricone. And focuses on anti-inflammatory skincare and cosmetics. Offering a pared back view on makeup with a ‘one fits all’ approach to color. The No Bronzer Bronzer aims to naturally perfect the features, while providing nourishment to the area.
#4 MASCARA FOR MIRACLE GROWTH
Many mascara formulas can be harsh and drying on the lashes. With everyday application this can lead to irritation or brittleness. Nourish your lashes without sacrificing length or volume with Charlotte Tilbury – Legendary Lashes Instant Hollywood False-Lash Effect Mascara. The formula contains Marine Glycogen, a hair tonic shown to stimulate growth of the hair follicle. And Tamanu Oil to nourish and strengthen delicate lash hairs.
