These tips should help speed up your morning beauty routine without compromising on a gorgeous end result: 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 along the way that can help!
1. Get organised!
MoMA MUJI Acrylic Case 5 Drawers ($60)
Having all your skincare and makeup products organised and within reach will make the process so much easier and quicker. Knowing where to find everything will save you tonnes of precious time and help your levels of sanity!
2. Cleanse and treat your skin at bedtime.
Tata Harper Skincare Refreshing Cleanser ($78)
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 mask/serum/night cream/facial oil will help you fake 8 hours of sleep when you’ve had just 5!
3. Multi purpose
Erborian CC Crème ($44)
Products are our saviours! Use a CC cream on the skin to cut down time without skimping on benefits to your skin and protection. A cheek & lip tint will instantly tie your look together without much thought and time. Mascara that curls and volumises will allow you to go without those dreaded eyelash curlers at a time in the morning where you’re far too disorientated to operate heavy machinery!
4. Use a sponge
beautyblender Original ($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
Charlotte Tilbury Rock ’n’ Kohl Liner ($27)
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
Run a coloured 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!
