Time doesn’t stop for anyone! If you are in a hurry to reach somewhere and the clock is ticking, you have two choices — go without makeup or with makeup. If you choose the second option, you will be late. If you have no choice and makeup is a must, we can help you out! You can try these neat makeup tricks to apply it quickly and without wasting a lot of your time:
Step #1: Prep Your Face with Primer
You want your makeup to last you several hours. Before you apply anything on your face, you need to apply primer to prep your face. If you have oily skin, go for a primer made specially for people with your skin type. Wash your face before you apply primer. If you are in the air or on the road and need to get ready in a jiffy, use cleaning wipes to clean your face and then apply primer.
Step #2: Dot Your Face with Foundation
When you are at home and have a lot of time on your hands, you can apply foundation, dotting it on your face and blending it with your fingers or using multiple brush heads. If you need to apply foundation on-the-go, get a sponge applicator attached to your foundation. You will not have to worry about keeping your foundation and applicator in your bag. If you have oily skin, you will benefit from using a sponge applicator, as it will remove excess oil from your face.
Step #3: Light Up Your Face with a Highlighter
Use a highlighter to light up your face. Instead of using a liquid-based highlighter, use a powder-based highlighter, as you can apply it more quickly on your face. In 20 seconds, you will achieve a flawless finish. Apply it on your cheekbones, brow bones, and cupid’s bow using your fingers.
Step #4: Contour Your Face with a Foundation Stick
You can use a foundation stick to contour your face. Buy a foundation stick that is one or two shades darker than your complexion. Use it to draw a line under your cheekbones and the edge of your jaw. Use the tip of a sponge applicator to blend it gently. You can combine it with a bold lipstick and highlighter, applying it on your cheekbones at the highest points.
Step #5: Wear Matte Lipstick
Keep your favorite shade in your bag so you can take it out whenever you want to recoat your lips with it. You should get a matte and long-lasting lip color. You don’t want your lip color to disappear in a few hours, but last you the entire day.
Try these makeup tricks the next time you need to get ready and only have a few hours. If you are getting out of the plane, leaving or going to office, or going somewhere at the last minute, you can use these products to apply makeup quickly and achieve a flawless look.
