We Career Girls are the epitome of busy; juggling all of life’s responsibilities while trying to look fabulous in the process is no easy feat! There are however, a few tricks I’ve picked up from make up artist that can help!
These tips should help minimize your beauty routine in the mornings without compromising on a gorgeous end result:
#1 Get organized
CosmoCube Posh Makeup Organizer ($185)
Having all your skincare and makeup products organized and within reach will make the process so much easier and quicker. Knowing where to find everything will save you tons of precious time and help your levels of sanity!
#2 Cleanse and treat your skin at bedtime.
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser ($38)
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser is an extra-gentle gel cleanser that instantly removes everyday impurities and makeup—even mascara—without stripping the skin of essential moisture. A good cleanse will clear your skin of any makeup, dirt and toxins from the day allowing your skin to breathe and rejuvenate itself while you sleep. An added treat of an overnight facial oil will help you fake eight hours of sleep when you’ve had just five!
#3 Multi purpose
Bare Minerals Hydrating Gel Cream ($30)
A multitasking gel cream that combines the best of a BB, a CC, and a tinted moisturizer to provide increased skin hydration after just one week. Use this cream on the skin to cut down time without skimping on benefits to your skin and protection.
#4 Use a sponge
Beautyblender Nude ($20)
Blend your foundation, concealer, cream contour and/or blush, all with a sponge like the Beauty Blender to save the search for multiple brushes as well as to save precious time. Every second counts!
#5 Tight line
SUQQU Gel Eyeliner ($20)
Tight line your upper waterline with a waterproof,long wearing black eye pencil and give the technically challenging eyeliner a miss. Tight-lining will add the same depth to your lash line as eyeliner but in one tenth of the time. Your eyeliner will never make you late for work again…!
#6 Don’t forget the eyebrows
Illamasqua Precision Brow Gel ($20)
Run a colored brow gel through your eyebrows for a naturally fuller and more polished brow without too much fuss. It’s also a foolproof way of avoiding the overdrawn brow look in a rush!
