Don’t get us wrong, we love our makeup sessions and take pleasure (and therapy) out of that one hour (or two) of patiently blending, concealing, and highlighting. All the while jamming to our very exclusive makeup playlist. However, there are days when someone might set their alarm for 7 pm instead of 7 am. That someone is obviously very sorry to their boss and very mad at their friends for another late weeknight.
This quick makeup guide is for all “someones” out there. Just because you’re late doesn’t mean you can’t still look fabulous.
Whether you always wake up on time in the mornings or not, there will always be moments in your life where you will have 5 minutes to look presentable. It could be an impromptu work video call, or your tinder date surprising you at your doorstep (seriously guys, text first). Or you could be a lazy girl like most of us. For all these problems, we have a solution – makeup products that help us skip steps and save time. Here are some finds to save your life.
The first thing you need to get is MyGlamm Tinted Primer. Not only it perfectly primes your skin and gives it a smooth, poreless look, but has a tint to which evens out your complexion. This can help you skip BB cream, CC cream, or even foundation. Just conceal your problem areas, and you’re good to go.
This little bottle of magic can help you tame unruly brow and lash hair in one go.
