Rush Hour Beauty Essentials

You're rushing out of the door in 5 minutes, yet you still want to look presentable. What to do? What not to do? Which steps are more important than others? Find out what I will do if I had to rush out of the door in less than 5 minutes.

First thing first, do not panic, no one is expecting a complex smokey eye with 101 shades. Take a deep breath, its all about the quality, not the quantity.

The most important step that no one must skip is skincare, at least wash your face and apply moisturize with SPF if you don't have the time to spare on applying both a moisturizer and a separate SPF.

Next, lets make the skin look better, a thin layer of foundation is a key, the thicker you apply the more it rushed out it will look. Yes you are in a hurry, but you don't want to look like you are. Quality over quantity is the best beauty motto. If you really need to get going, use your hands, its totally fine. But if not, I love stippling brushes.

Now your face looks much better. If you have major acne issues or dark spots, dark under eye circles, or anything that you want your foundation to cover, but it didn't  then you'll probably need a concealer too, but don't be too finicky, EVERYBODY's skin acts up sometimes. 

Next, I would go straight to Mascara, not a dramatic one because again you dont want to look overdone. I am not a fan of mascara on by bottom lashes, but its not for me to decide whether you should apply mascara on them or not. However, what I highly suggest is that if you have 10 seconds to spare, grab a waterproof colored pencil liner and run it across the lower lash line. It will give your eyes vibrancy and youthfulness, Use a waterproof or a really long lasting one, and use a color that looks nice on the colors of your eyes.

Next, for me, blush is definitely a must. I like cream blushed because you don't need a brush, but I still would opt for a powder one. It depends on your personal preferences, but still, I would never skip it. No need for contours and highlights, just pick a color that you love, and a formula that you trust.

Last but not least,the lips. the easiest thing to do is either a nude lip or a sheer lipstick. Or you can use an easy application kind of lip product. Use a color that suits your skin tone, and also makes your teeth look whiter.

Last but not least, wear your favorite perfume and head out of the door, and don't worry, you look beautiful :)
