Quick & Simple Makeup Tips for Looking Fab When Running Late
December 21 2021
It never fails – especially during the holidays. Something happens to distract you from your plans last-minute and you have to put together your look in an instant. Unfortunately, that means your makeup routine takes a back seat to arriving at your event on time, so you rush through, wondering what you forgot. You don’t need to worry – with these easy tips, you’ll be ready with a fresh face no matter how late you are running! Combination coverage. Stock up on the right products before you’re in a rush, and you’ll be ready to get a gorgeous look even before you’re in a rush. One great product you’ll want to try is tinted moisturizer, which gives you the blush of color you need while moisturizing your skin at the same time. That way, your skin will look soft and healthy when you don’t have time for a full makeup routine. Jane Irdeale Dream Tint® Tinted Moisturizer is a great choice that’s available in plenty of skin tone-matching shades.
Mascara. Mascara is a must, even when you’re on the go. Thick, luscious lashes help draw attention away from your light makeup job to make your eyes look awake and alert. GrandeDrama Intense Thickening Mascara with Castor Oil by GrandeLash MD gives you a full, dramatic look in seconds. No time for mascara? Try lash extensions or a lash lift & tint combo treatment to give you that bold mascara look without having to apply mascara every day. Just wake up and your eyes are ready to go!
Lips. Your lips are another focal point on your face, so they need color to give you that put-together look. But putting on lipstick in a hurry can be a problem, since you don’t have time for liner to give you an even look. When you’re in a rush, try a tinted lip gloss or a Lip Drink by Jane Iredale for beautiful lips on the go.
Cheeks. Even if you don’t have time for foundation, a quick brush of blush is a must. Powder blushes can be quicker to blend than creams, although creams tend to last longer. Stock up on both so you’ll always be ready – the Jane Iredale collection of cheek coverage products give you quality ingredients with fantastic results.
Eyes. Mascara comes first, but if you still have time for lid color, do a quick shade in the creases for a quick blend and a look that gives you color and shading. Always have a little white shade on hand – dabbing a bit in the inside corners can help brighten up your eyes in a pinch. Finally, don’t forget the brows if you have time. A good brow liner can draw attention away from anything in your makeup routine that you didn’t have time for. Try a professional brow gel product for a quick application with a light tint that helps define your brows.
Semi-permanent solutions. Preparing in advance for those last-minute rushes is the best way to be sure you always look your best. Tints, lifts, and lash extensions give you an effortless makeup routine by helping your eyes look like you’re already wearing makeup!
- Lash tints. Lash tints dye your lashes in a darker color, which helps them look fuller, thicker, and longer because you can see the entire lash. While not as dramatic a look as lash extensions, lash tints help you get by most days without mascara.
- Lash lifts. If you need to use a lash curler often, skip the tedious routine and get a lash lift. Lash lifts give you that same look without having to bring out the lash curler every morning, and the effect lasts until your lashes shed naturally in several weeks.
- Lash extensions. Lash extensions are trending high right now because they give you an incredibly dramatic look without applying any mascara at all! Lash extensions are applied to the end of each lash, so they don’t come off until your lash sheds naturally. Since every lash will shed at a different time, you just need to come in for a few touch-ups to keep the look for months.
