For the ultra busy girl who doesn’t have a minute to spare, these super quick beauty rituals won’t just save her time, but will help her look like a confident goddess ALL day! Her skin will look flawless, her lips will look fuller and her hair will look like she just stepped out of a salon. If you’re the kind of girl who’s always in a hurry, here are 10 time saving beauty rituals to look well put-together, even if it’s the opposite of what you feel!
Girls who have wavy or curly hair, only you would understand how annoying it gets to tame the frizz every morning! Sometimes, using more product can damage your locks too. Use water instead! You don’t have to completely wet your hair, just soak an old tee with lukewarm water, and wrap it around you mane for 2 minutes. Remove it and viola! You have beautiful, glossy hair all day long! This hack is great instead of washing your hair or using the product.
We repeat, do not touch that hair curler! It does more harm than good. Opting for a no heat style is gentler on your roots and tips, plus, it saves you a good amount of time. All you’ve got to do is divide your hair into 2 halves, tightly twist each side and secure it with a rubber band. That won’t take you longer than a couple minutes. Let your hair be till it dries completely, then remove the rubber bands and let your hair run loose. You’ll have natural waves in a jiffy.
Don’t have a brow brush? No problemo! Use a spare toothbrush instead. Mist the brush by using hairspray and gently brush your browns and baby hair. In 2 minutes flat, you will have gorgeous, sleek brows and a clean hairline that will look sharp for the entire day.
A lipstick that bleeds or fades away can be really annoying, this 2 minute trick is a life saviour! First, start by applying one coat of lipstick. Then, gently place a tissue on your lips and dust some translucent powder over it. Remove the tissue and then apply a second coat of lipstick - and you’re done! Nothing will stop your lippie from staying put all day long.
If you have a date today and are looking to mesmerize him with just those eyes, opt for the smoky eye look! Sure it looks like a tough, time-consuming job, but we assure you that you can nail it in just 2 minutes! Just draw a slanted hashtag at the outer corner of each eyelid with some kohl and use an eyeshadow brush to spread and blend out the edges. There you have it, girls! A quick, sexy, soft smoky eye look!
No time to wait for your nail polish to dry up? It’s totally okay! All you’ve got to do is apply your nail polish like how you normally would and instead of waiting for it to dry up, dunk your nails into a bowl of cold water. After 5 secs, remove your fingers out from the bowl and allow the excess water to drip from your nails. Your nail polish would have hardened in the meantime. Try it to believe it!
No need to spend time removing your makeup using a makeup remover or a fancy oil face wash. You can use coconut oil to get the job done. Start by gently massaging a small amount of coconut oil on your face using a cotton ball. Follow it up with a wash and your face will look squeaky clean! Do it every night for 2 minutes and your skin will have a fresh, healthy and glowing appearance.
For instant glowing, natural skin, get a hold of 1 concealer shade that’s lighter than your skin tone and mix it with your face cream. Go ahead and apply it on your cheekbones, forehead, brow area and bridge of your nose. Works like a charm all the time!
Rose water is lovely because it makes skin feel fresh and smell divine. Just after you’ve finished applying your makeup, spray some of it on your face. This quick trick helps set your makeup and give your skin a dewy, fresh look. It’ll be your new fave beauty hack, we’re sure!
What if we told you that you can use your eyeshadow as a brow powder and liner? Of course, you can! You don’t have to splurge on many products when one product can do the job. With the help of different brushes and makeup techniques you can create multiple looks using a single product. Pretty cool, right?
