Lack of time for a beauty treatment? With a little organization and a few basic tricks, we can be at our best in just minutes!
I'm the first to run out of time for the finishing touch in the morning! Already with the preparation of lunch, the children and the household in general, I can barely take a shower, so time to make myself look good… Let's try these pro tips picked up over the course of my readings and that I had time to test!
The basis of everything is the skin! Of the face especially, but of our whole body too! Are you running out of time to cream yourself from your toes to your fingertips? Drink a lot of water! It helps to hydrate the skin and eliminate toxins. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Apply moisturizer to your face every day, and don't forget your neck! Well-hydrated skin won't need as much care as neglected skin!
A good way to save time is to recover at least the precious minutes spent looking for our clothes, products and accessories. It's worth spending a few minutes – or a few hours if you're particularly spread out! – to organize ababy corner! The luckiest have all the space they need, the many others can make do with a big basket in which you pile up the pots, brushes and make-up to have everything at hand quickly. We only put the essentials, but we make sure everything is there!
Tinted CreamA tinted moisturizer will do two things in half the time!
ConcealerWhat disadvantages us the most are the marks left by lack of sleep! The important thing is to hide without weighing it down, so choose a light stick concealer that you apply where you need it: under the eyes and around the nose. To hide a really obvious pimple or redness, use a thicker concealer.
BlushA dab of blush on the top of the cheekbones gives a glow to the entire face. We do not abuse it, a brush stroke - or 2 - is enough!
EyeshadowThe fastest way is to use blush as eyeshadow! But that's not always suitable, so choose a neutral-colored all-purpose eyeshadow that can adapt to all circumstances. And we put mascara on the upper lashes.
Loose PowderThe quick touch that's needed to mattify overly shiny skin like mine. We lightly pass the puff on the forehead, nose and chin, being careful not to put too thick. If so, useblush brush and blend.
LipsThis is the hardest part! We absolutely must have 2 or 3 shades of red on hand so as not to clash with the morning look! By choosing a neutral color and adding lip gloss, you get a mat result!
Even if these few minutes require organizational prowess, I invite you to include them in your morning routine. It's crazy how much better you feel when you've taken the time to make yourself beautiful!
