Speed Up Your Makeup Routine

Here are some easy, time-saving tips that will help you do your makeup in a flash on those busy mornings when you just can't linger over your lovely face in the mirror.

  • Keep liner and mascara to the top upper lash line and lashes. Skip the bottom. It's more natural looking for daytime wear, too.
  • Anything that can be applied quickly with your fingers will save the time of pulling out your makeup brushes. That goes for cream blush and eye shadows in particular.
  • With neutral and medium intensity colors you don't have to be as precise. Darker colors take more time. For example, it's much easier to swipe on a quick coat of pale pink nail polish than to do a deep red.
  • Dual products are your friend. If you can use it on more than one feature, it's one less product you have to use.
  • Foundation products that dry to a powder finish also mean you don't have to set with powder, eliminating that extra step.
