Have you ever tried to juggle with your hairdryer like a crazy clown while getting dressed or having breakfast, or to blend your blush while haphazardly putting random useless stuff into a bag? Well, I’m exactly like that.
And these are the little tricks that I started to use when I really must storm out of my house for some reason:
- USE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER TOGETHER
There actually are tons of all-in-one products, but (hallo, Camilla!) I realized that you can actually use both shampoo and conditioner together, simply blending the second one only on the edges, and the shampoo on the roots of your hair. Then, you will only have to rinse off all at once.
2. DON’T USE SHAMPOO ON WET HAIR
Never forget it, even tough sometimes it seems the last thing to do when we’re in a rush. If you’re (like me) the kind of girl that doesn’t choose her outfit the day before, I suggest you to choose it after you put on some cream for your face and body, so that you let it absorb.
Below are some hacks to speed up your make up process:
- USE A MOISTURIZER OR A CC CREAM
4. FOR YOUR EYE BROWS
For a lovely cupid's bow when applying lippy, draw an X onto your top lip, apply lip liner around the rest of your lips, and then colour in with lipstick. To make them look fuller, try to use a brown or dark coloured pencil.
A lot of people I met would use the concealer as a BB cream. Once I saw my friend blending it all over her face, and even on her neck, saying “she had so many blemishes”... alright, don’t do that. Concealer is mostly for little spots like pimples or stuff like that and you are supposed to blend it around your nose and chin, and under your eyes if you need it. It doesn’t have to take the place of a foundation! Caroline Barns, Cheryl Fernandez-Versing's makeup artist, suggest to "start with a concealer like Vicky Dermablend Corrective Stick (15 pounds) and use it as you would an eraser, deleting the redness and blemishes". Moreover, instead of wiping along your dark circles, apply it in a triangle under your eye. I also found a video that exactly explains how to do it, so there you go!
I found on Cosmopolitan, a few days ago, the words of Florrie White, a clinique UK colour artist about this: “Apply a soft smudgy eyeliner into the waterline (the bit above your lower lashes, next to your eye), then into the lower lashes, blending to a soft line underneath. Sharpen the pencil and sweep a line over the top lashes”. To make the best of your eye shadow, intensify the colour of any eyeshadow by putting white eyeshadow/crayon on your eyelid first. If your eyeshadow cracks, which happens so often to me, there’s actually a super easy trick to have a new one, that doesn’t involve spending money. Just wrap it in collophane, smash it and then just add some alchol... I tried and it worked (actually, only the second time, since the first time I basically put way too much alchool I think I killed the eyeshadow).
And for now, that's all.
Love you all,
