Beauty Hacks to Save Time Getting Ready!
Our social media feeds are saturated with an overwhelming number of beauty hacks. But truthfully, it’s hard to find a good beauty hack that’s actually worth your time! Whether you’re into a full face of makeup, or you’re all about the fresh-faced look, we could all use some tips and tricks to cut some time out of our makeup routine.
Here’s a list of beauty hacks dedicated to helping you save some time getting ready!
1. Get an alarm clock
I know what you’re thinking. Why buy an alarm clock when you’ve got a smartphone?
Trust me, an alarm clock is a solid investment. Especially, if you’re someone who’s always in a rush to get out the door.
When you’re ready to go to bed, leave your phone in another room to charge and just grab it in the morning when you’re done getting ready. Think of it this way, you’ll have more of an incentive to get up in the morning because you want to check your phone!
Try it out! It’ll take you less time to get ready in the morning because you’re saving all the time that you’re usually using to scroll through your phone.
2. Get the most out of makeup removing wipes
Ever notice all the excess liquid in a new pack of makeup wipes? Get the most out of your makeup wipes by pouring all of the extra liquid into an empty (and new) contact case.
Now you have a tiny case of makeup remover! And you can easily make corrections to your makeup without getting up. Just dip a Q-Tip into your DIY makeup remover. But to avoid contamination, make sure you’re always using a new Q-Tip whenever you’re touching the makeup remover.
3. Keep your makeup organized by removing the clutter
It’s a lot easier to get ready when you know exactly where everything is. Get rid of all the clutter in your beauty drawer by separating the makeup that you use more regularly, from the products that you barely touch!
4. Keep makeup samples in your purse
When you’re making an online purchase, a lot of stores will offer you free samples at checkout. It’s a great idea to go with trial size mascaras or mini fragrances, because you can easily carry them along with you throughout the day. Instead of lugging around full-size makeup products, you have what you need for a mid-day touch up!
5. Use tinted eyebrow gel to make your brows look fuller
When you’re super pressed for time, a tinted eyebrow gel is a great way to add some definition and fullness to your brows quick!
