Over slept? Forgot about a meeting? Don’t worry. It doesn’t take long to look good. Depending on how long you have, and the look you want to achieve, you can pick and combine the beauty looks below. Ready? Lets dive in to the makeup looks!
The first is just some BB Cream (This one is from E.L.F and is just $6) and Mascara (Supersizer is a new cult classic and is only $10). This look is great for those days you don’t really want to wear a lot of makeup but still need to look like you tried. It also makes a great base for the next two bases.
Now onto the brows and the lips. The brows help frame the face, as it is important to take a minute to make them look good, because, if they don’t, it ruins the look. This brow pencil ($10 from NYX) has a highlighter on the other side so you can quickly give your brows a lift when you are in a rush. As for the lips, try a neutral lip (like this lip stain that is $4 from Essence) when you are in a rush because imperfect are less obvious than with a bold lip.
Lastly we have eyeshadow and blush. Eyeshadow is great because you can customize your look to how much time you have to get ready. If you have 30 second to do your eyeshadow, just sweep a little bit of a highlight shade on your lids. Small palettes (like this $8 one from Covergirl) are great because they can be used to create a variety of looks but aren’t overwhelming when you are in a rush, unlike some larger palette. As for blush, I believe no look is truly complete without swiping some blush across the apples of your cheek. It just adds some life into your skin. Pick one that is similar to your natural blush tone (this $13 one from L’Oréal is great for lighter skin tones) so that you don’t have to spend as much time worrying about applying too much, because it won’t appear as obvious as other blush tones.
Which look was your favourite? Will you be trying any? Let me know in the comments below!
P.S. The L’Oréal blush is a great dupe for the Benefit Coralista Blush. Find out other great Benefit dupes here!
