How to get ready in 10 minutes
Okay, so you're late. Like seriously have to get ready in 10 minutes and get out the door. Hey, it happens to the best of us. Here's how you can make out the door on time.
Step 1 | Brush your teeth. Yeah, you can't skip that one. Mouth wash just isn't the same thing. While you're doing this, think about what you're going to wear and remember that a white t-shirt goes with everything from coloured jeans to a stuffy cardigan. Wash your face with a gentle facewash, like Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser.
Step 2 | You know those makeup removing wipes that you can get? (I like Neutrogena makeup remover towelettes) Also great for giving yourself a quick wipe down when a shower just isn't an option. While you're at it, throw some dry shampoo, like Osis+ Dust it mattifying powder in your hair and put it up in a ponytail or sock bun.
Step 3 | Sunscreen. Being late is not an excuse to skip this, ever. I like Neutrogena ultra sheer liquid sunscreen because it's super light. Then squeeze a quarter size dollop of tinted moisturizer or bb cream (if you're using the latter, a nickle size is probably good enough) and start putting this on your face using a sweeping outwards motion. Start from the nose and t-zone, then do your cheeks and finish on the edges of your face. Put a tiny bit of concealer under your eyes to disguise any dark circles, and finish with a tiny bit of loose powder to keep anything from migrating or mist your face with one of those fabulous setting sprays you can get.
Step 4 | phew! almost there. Line your eyes with a brown pencil liner. If you're late, you don't have time to mess around with liquid or gel, and brown eyeliner is much more forgiving than black if you slip up. Curl your eyelashes because that also helps you look that much more awake, and put on a nice volumizing mascara.
Step 5 | Blush with a little shimmer is going to throw a little light onto your face. Grab a nice pink lipgloss to apply later.
Step 6 | Get dressed and grab a breakfast bar to snack on. On your way!
