Makeup Tips to Get You Out the Door

Waking up the morning realizing you’ve overslept never bodes well when you have a packed day’s schedule ahead of you. Or worse—if you happen to be an otherwise early riser who needs time to prepare in the morning—the thought of getting ready and putting on makeup is enough to throw your hands up in defeat and just skip all appointments for the day to stay at home. Over the years of hapless days such as this, I’ve come to learn a thing or two about acing a quickie makeup routine, so I can be out the door in a heartbeat.

First, stick to a lightweight foundation or a tinted moisturizer, using your fingers to apply it all over the face. Especially if you typically use a brush to apply your foundation, get used to applying it with your fingers—this will help warm up the foundation quickly and allow it to meld instantaneously and seamlessly into the skin. For those with oil-prone t-zones, dust with light powder. Once you get used to doing this, it should take no more than a minute and a half.

Instead of eyeliner, opt for a neutral eye shadow that best complements your skin tone to define your eyes. My personal favorite is a medium deep rich brown, which I swipe on my top inner lid (right below the crease) as well as the outer third of my lower lash line. This technique is great if you’re in a rush and don’t have the time for a precise liner application. Follow with a coat of mascara on the top and lower lashes for instant depth. These steps should take no more than two minutes.

A medium deep lipstick can double as a blush as well as lip color. For blush, swipe lightly on the cheekbones and use your fingers to blend. For that quick pop of color on the lips, apply a single layer to your lips. Finish this step, and you’re ready to seize the day—packed schedule or not!
