Many people are constantly on the lookout for a beauty routine that's fast and simple because there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done. Sometimes, many of us would even like to go from "fast" to "warp speed ahead"! Read on to get simple tips for applying makeup quickly and effectively.
Treat, protect and even out your complexion
To speed up your beauty routine, we recommend hybrid products for your face, such as tinted sun protection. You'll find several options on the market that will moisturize your skin, fight the sun's rays, and even out your complexion.
Control the level of coverage
Keep your concealer handy if you have some redness, dark circles or more stubborn imperfections. You'll then be able to correct the areas that bother you the most. Another trick is to mix your concealer with your favourite moisturizer or tinted sun cream in the palm of your hand and then apply it to your face. You'll get more coverage, but still with a natural finish.
A little colour, please
With hybrid products in mind, why not opt for a cream-textured blush, bronzer or illuminator? Applying these products looks more natural on the skin and gives you a healthy glow since they are not too matte. They could even be used on lips and eyes for a minimalist, monochromatic look. What's more, cream textures are very easy to apply with your fingers, so your makeup bag won’t be inundated with too many products and tools.
Don't forget your eyebrows
Want maximum impact with little effort? Give your eyebrows a little love. Whether it's a translucent gel to comb them or a few strokes of a pencil to correct and intensify them pay attention to your eyebrows as they are the frames of your eyes. At the same time, you could use your eyebrow pencil to define the base of your upper lashes with a few strokes that you'll blend in with your finger afterwards.
Finish off your look with your favourite mascara. Your look will then be done! To facilitate and speed up applying mascara, opt for mascara with a small-to-medium-sized brush without any complicated design. Sometimes, overly voluminous brushes retain too much mascara; you may end up creating clumps and risking smudging your complexion.
There you have it! These are simple makeup tips for creating a stellar look in a hurry, with multi-purpose products you can keep in your bag for touch-ups throughout the day. Feel free to add and remove products to customize your makeup routine based on your needs.
