How long does it take you to get all of your kids up, dressed, breakfasted, and ready for school? Ages, if our little family is anything to go by. Of course, the last thing that you need on a busy morning is yet another task to complete. Such as doing a full face of makeup. Although heading out the door with none at all can be an equally dread-inducing option. You’ll be pleased to hear then that there is a compromise. In fact, you can find it in the post below, where you can learn the fastest makeup routine in the west. Pew, pew!
BB & CC creams
Moisturizing, priming, and applying foundation to your skin is a job that takes far too long to get done before the school run. However, using a one-step BB cream instead can definitely work.
In fact, by using a BB cream, like the ones at www.elle.com you get all the advantages of a moisturizer but with the complexion evening benefits of light foundation. You can even get them in colour correcting or CC varieties, as well. Something that makes them perfect for busy moms with facial redness, or even those few of us that have a tired or sallow look to our skin. Although I can’t imagine what would cause this? (Cough, cough!)
Now, you probably already know that to get a-put-together makeup look, you need two things, great brows, and fabulous lashes. In fact, to get the latter, you can head to my post at www.ambernicoleblog.com. Unfortunately, when it comes to the former, brows can be one of the most time-consuming tasks in your whole makeup routine!
Well, unless you can find a hack, that is. One that you might like to try being the chubby eyebrow crayons that allow you to apply in one stroke.
Alternatively, you may want to do away with having to draw on your brows in the morning, or at any other time of the day altogether. Something that you can achieve by going to establishments like www.binasbeautybar.com and getting a microblading treatment. Which is essentially a semi-permanent tattoo for your browns, meaning that they look good all of the time. Whether you have just got out of bed or are in the swimming pool. Even if you are caught in a downpour when it’s time to get the kids from school!
A quick blast of fixing spray
Ain’t nobody got time for setting each layer of makeup in the mornings. That is why you should steer clear of the loose powder and use fixing spray instead such as the ones you will find reviewed on sites such as www.goodhousekeeping.com/.
You can think of fixing spray for your face, a bit like hair spray for your hair in that one spritz, and your makeup should stay the way you did it all day. Yes, even if you get caught out in the rain, or have to run after the little ones. It’s super quick and easy, too, which makes fixing spray the last stage of this the fastest makeup routine in the west. Now it’s your turn to draw, partner!
