If you’re prone to sleeping past your alarm, you may feel that you don’t have enough time to engage in your regular beauty routine each morning. If pressed for time in the morning, I like to make changes to my routine. Here are a few simple tips you can use to simplify your beauty routine in the AM:
1. Highlight and contour in one step
To highlight your face, apply concealer in a “3” motion. Using a concealer that is lighter than your skin tone, draw the top line above your browbone, the middle line above your cheekbones, and bottom line right above your jawline. To contour your face, apply bronzer in a backward “3” motion. Blend the highlight and contour together for a seamless finish.
2. Moisturize while you sleep
If your skin is feeling extra dry, apply your moisturizer before bed. Applying moisturizer before bed allows the lotion to absorb into your skin, and it eliminates one step from your morning.
3. Simplify your makeup routine
I enjoy applying makeup each morning, but sometimes there just isn’t time. Pick 3-4 products that you use daily, and apply those each morning. I often use concealer, mascara, and a red lipstick for a simple, easy makeup look.
