Are you always in a hurry in the mornings? Do you wake up before the sun rises to go through your beauty routine so that you can be out of the house on time but wish you could spent a few more minutes in bed instead? A few, quick changes to your beauty routine will make you save some precious time so you can stay in your comfy and warm bed a little bit longer or enjoy a a relaxed breakfast and still look your best. Here’s how:
1. Shower the night before
Showering at night is one of the best ways to save time in the morning, allowing you to spent a little more time in bed. In addition, because you don’t have to rush out to go to work or run some errands, you can spend more time in the shower. You can take advantage of this to shave, wash your hair or just unwind and relax, letting the water soothe your tired body and wash your cares away.
2. Choose your outfit the night before
Do you often grab the first clothes you can find in the morning even if they don’t go well together, or on the contrary, waste a lot of time looking for those earrings that would really complement your outfit but you can’t remember where you put them? These problems are easily fixed by picking out your entire outfit, including underwear, jewelry and other accessories at night before going to bed. That way, all you have to do in the morning is simply put them on. It saves time and ensures you always look your best.
3. Use unnecessary skincare products at night
In the mornings, keep your skincare routine as simple as possible and use only necessary products such as a cleanser, a sunscreen, a moisturizer and maybe a product to treat breakouts or any serious skin condition you may have. Instead, use serums, toners, exfoliants and any other skincare product you need at night before going to bed. Also, tweeze your eyebrows and do your manicure, pedicure, and any other skin-pampering treatment you need in the evening too.
4. Keep your makeup simple too
If you don’t have much time to get ready in the morning, keep your makeup simple: a touch of concealer when needed, a neutral eyeshadow, a coat of mascara, some blush, a gloss and a dust of powder to fix everything is all most people need. Also, use multi-tasking products such as a cheek and lip stain. Doing a full face or more complex eyeshadow looks is nice and fun, but do it only when you have time.
5. Don’t try new looks in the mornings
And don’t try new looks or techniques in the morning. If you want to use a liquid eyeliner but don’t have a steady hand, or want to apply your eyeshadow in a different way, practice when you have some free time, or you’ll risk ruining your look and having to start from scratch again, which will only make you lose time and maybe make you late for work or school too. Once you’ve become a pro, you can incorporate it in your makeup routine in the mornings.
