Most of us will do just about anything for a few extra minutes in bed. The best way to do this is to cut minutes from your morning beauty regime and we have 7 easy ways to do just that.
Instead of hanging around waiting for your body moisturiser to dry before you get dressed, opt for an in shower formula. These combine a body wash with an all over moisturiser and mean you hop straight out of the shower ready to take on the day.
Apply your eye makeup first. This ensures that you aren’t spending precious minutes cleaning any fallout from your already made up face. This is actually a good technique to use even when you aren’t in a rush, because it saves product and gives you a much cleaner finish.
For perfect beach waves, try plaiting your hair before you go to sleep. Unravel them in the morning and apply a spritz of salt spray for sexy, undone hair every day of the week – no curling iron necessary.
We have a serious addiction to multi use makeup products, and our favourite is the crème color. These formulas are perfect for use on lips, cheeks or eyes and can save you time switching between applicators and products. If you’re a newbie to crème colors, opt for a peachy pink shade that gives a great nude lip and glowy skin.
Make sure your mascara is a curling and lengthening formula so you don’t need to spend time with a curler. This cuts at least a minute from your morning routine but still allows you to have open, bright eyes.
Use a face formula that moisturises, provides sun protection and evens skin tone. These are all essential steps in any woman’s morning beauty routine, but applying each separately is time consuming. Some amazing formulas that combine all three have been released and are definitely worth trying.
