Yes, multitasking can be a productivity killer but when it comes to your beauty routine, multitasking products are very much welcomed. Tinted moisturisers, cream bronzers, lip and cheek tints… and the list goes on. Most of you probably know that when on occasion, you get busy and end up not getting enough sleep + water, and your food habits all go wrong, it all immediately starts to show on your skin. But your schedule is so tight, that you can only organise some quick fixes, for the time being, then only some basic makeup routine can come to your rescue.
I’ve never been one to wear much makeup, but I hate to admit that nevertheless, everyone does feel better about their appearance and more put-together when they apply some makeup, so I’m here today to offer my regular makeup routine.
I start by washing my face every morning and applying a light moisturiser. Then, I wait about 15 minutes to allow the moisturiser to completely soak into my skin before I start applying any makeup.
1.Base: I usually include a multipurpose moisturiser, that has some tint and an SPF, or a foundation with SPF to minimise the steps in your morning routine as a base. A multipurpose base is vital when you’re trying to get out of the house fast.
2.Concealer: use a concealer to hide under eye fatigue and the blemishes. Concealer can be used as a highlighter or eyeshadow primer and can be used as a lip base if you need to take off the lipstick and reapply it. Therefore it sometimes proves to be your best friend.
3.Mascara: full lashes are universally flattering to everyone so, Mascara is a must. That’s one of my favourite aspects in a makeup routine because I love to play with eyelashes-curlers which provides my eyes with such an extraordinary elegance. Find the one that does double duty and lengthens and volumes. This way you can skip the eyeliner and still achieve fuller eyes with a natural smear.
4.Blush: a little colour on your cheeks gives you an instant glow and cream-based product gives a more natural glaze. Pare down your entire make up collection with a lipstick that can also be used as a blush. Or you can always try a cheek tint available in various shades to bring you that natural radiance which can last up to 8-9 hours. So never forget the cheeks.
5.Lips: always finish up with a lipstick or a lip gloss. Colour on your lips makes a big difference and healthy and hydrated lips make you look more youthful. And if you have a collection of essential shades, you can always use them in the place of colour correctors to conceal the black spots.
And if you’re a beginner and looking for an all-rounder, go for red. Red lipstick is bold and it’ll look like you spent way more time than you did!
With a little prep work, a quick makeup routine is a fact. We hope these simple tips and tricks will help you with your routine and make it hassle-free.
