We’ve all been there: we start the morning with all the time in the world, before realising we’re late and barely have time to take a shower. But that doesn’t mean you should skip your makeup! You don’t need to spend more than five minutes on these four easy steps; perfect when you run out of time.
Never, ever skip your skincare routine. We know it can be tempting…What’s the worst that can happen? Well, your makeup won’t look as good for a start. Skincare is an important act of self-care that you should be doing every day, no matter how little time you have. Plus, it doesn’t have to feature 10 different products.
A perfectly acceptable skincare routine can be as easy as washing your face, applying a facial toner and a moisturiser. For even more convenience, we recommend using a moisturising primer, which will prep your skin for makeup, in addition to ensuring it is hydrated.
A well-groomed eyebrow can make all the difference to your look. It doesn’t matter if it’s been a while since your last trip to the beautician, tidying them up will trick anyone into thinking you spent far longer than five minutes on your makeup.
Simply use an eyebrow brush to groom them. Brush them upwards, starting from the inside edges towards the outside. For this step, you can also use a clear or tinted eyebrow gel, which will give your eyebrows a fuller look and help them stay tidy during the day.
If there is one thing that can make you look more awake, it’s concealer. Depending on your skin type, you can either use a cream or powder formula. However, a cream concealer will be easier to use if you’re in a rush, as you can apply it using your fingertips.
Apply the concealer over any skin blemishes you would like to cover and remember less is more! Over-do the concealer and it could leave your skin looking cakey. If in doubt, apply too little product, take it with you and top up when you have more time on your hands. Jecca Blac’s Correct & Conceal Palette is nice and compact so you can pop it in your handbag for use on the go.
To brighten your eyes, apply the concealer on your under-eye. If using a cream concealer, take some of the product with your ring finger and gently press it on your skin. The ring finger will naturally use less pressure when applying the product, which is perfect for the under eye area as it’s one of the most sensitive parts of your face.
The last step to completing your last-minute look is mascara. A good mascara will make you look more awake and give you that no-makeup makeup look.
Find the mascara that best suits you and your desired look. We recommend using a mascara that will both lengthen your lashes and make them appear fuller.
