Wouldn’t it be great if we could all take our sweet time on our beauty regimen every day? The reality is, it’s difficult to keep up with a consistent beauty routine. Work, family and duty calls! Luckily, we have a few tips for those days when you just don’t have time.
Here are our top five beauty hacks every busy girl needs to try.
Let’s Get It Straight
Struggling to get the perfect “cat eye” or “wing tip” with your eyeliner? It can take a lot of focus and a steady hand to get the perfect line. Luckily, we have the answer. Grab an ID or a business card you have lying around. Place the card on the corner of your eye and angle it towards the tip of your eyebrow. Hold it firmly and draw a thin line along the edge. You can thicken it to your liking afterwards. Now, you have eyeliner on point! You can even try it on your commute to work… but not while driving!
Make Your Mascara Do Double Duty
Running late and just realized you’re out of eyeliner? Just sweep an eyeliner brush against your mascara bristles and voila! You just got the best of both worlds. Line your upper or lower lash line as you would with any regular eyeliner and you’re good to go.
Dry Shampoo is Your BFF
With your busy lifestyle, you may have a missed a day (or two) washing your hair. Don’t worry, we’re not judging. Have no fear, dry shampoo is your new little secret. Spray from at least 8-12 inches away, as spraying too close can leave patchy white spots. Even it out by blow drying and brushing to distribute all over your hair. Keep in mind that dry shampoo shouldn’t be used too much due to buildup; this is just as a temporary hack!
Don’t have the time or money to make a trip to the nail salon? Making cute nail designs is easier than it seems. Try this simple trick by putting the end of a Band-Aid where the holes are over your dry nail, and use the holes to make a fun polka dot design. You can also use bobby pins or pen tips to get the job done. Or, try something fancier like an ombre nail. Use a makeup sponge that’s angled to apply several polish colors at once! Want the matte look? Add corn starch to your clear nail polish and coat the top of your nail color.
Plump Up Your Pout
Mix a little peppermint oil into your lip glass for plumper, fuller looking lips. You could also try using a light-colored pencil and first applying it to the center of your lips. Then, slightly smudge it across your lips. Gloss it over with a light color to give lips a shiny boost!
