13 Life Saving Ingenious Beauty Tricks To Use When You’re Running Late

By Shraya, 18 Nov 2016

When it comes to getting ready in the morning, all women need their time, especially when it comes to applying makeup. In fact, a proper make up routine usually takes 15-30 minutes or even more in some cases, but what do you do when you’re running late? You can’t risk spending your usual time in front of the mirror but neither would you want to compromise on your morning routine. So here are some lifesaving hacks you can use while getting ready if you’re racing the clock!

1. Instead of using a foundation, Go for a BB cream

If you don’t have time for a perfectly applied foundation, then switch to BB cream and blend it using a beauty sponge or your fingers. BB cream gives a good coverage, are easier to blend and can be applied quickly.

2. No time for shampoo? Try some Baby Powder

If you don’t have time to shampoo your hair and if wet hair is not your thing, then dust your brush with some baby powder and brush it through your hair. Baby powder will help you get rid of the excess oil in your hair, giving your tresses a fresh look.

3. Give you hair light waves without any heat!

The moment you realize you’ve slept past your alarm, just spray your hair lightly with salt spray or a light strength hair spray and wrap it into a bun. Open it up when you’re about to leave and you’ll have perfect beach waves to flaunt outdoors.

4. Freshen up your strands with perfume

If you haven’t washed your hair and want to make it appear livelier, then spray your hairbrush with perfume and run it through your locks to distribute it evenly. This will freshen your hair and give it a neater look.

5. Apply your mascara perfectly using a makeshift shield

When you don’t have the time to carefully apply mascara without accidentally staining your skin, then use your ID card or a spoon and place it right above and below the lash line before running the mascara brush over your lashes. Use a toothbrush to de-clump for a perfect finish!

6. Use a white kajal pencil to brighten up eyes

Applying white kajal on your lower lash line will not only brighten your eyes, but will also give you a fresh look.

7. Use two shades at once to contour

To reduce the hassle of using different brushes and shades to contour, instead, pick a wide brush and apply a highlighter powder on the upper half and contour powder on the lower one. Sweep it across your face in one go and blend to get the perfect look.

8. Skip Mascara, Go for Vaseline

Applying mascara takes time and can get messy if you try to run it on your lashes quickly. Instead apply Vaseline on your eyelashes,

9. Dry your nail polish faster with ice water

Dip your wet and freshly painted nails in a tumbler of ice water to make the paint dry faster. Not only does it dry your nails but also ensures that your nail polish layer is harder as well.

10. Flatten your unruly hair using a silk scarf

Before starting on your makeup, comb out your hair the way you want it to be and wrap a silk scarf around the stubborn cowlicks and unruly edges. Unwrap it before you’re about to leave to have a neatly set head of hair.

11. Go For Red Lipstick 

If you are running very late, and have no time for a full face make up, then go for a good red lipstick. Red lips will uplift your face instantly making you look glamorous even without makeup.

12. Use a colored gloss instead of lipstick

Instead of a complicated lip routine or just trying your best to keep your lip color from running out the edges, opt for a colored lip gloss which you can apply on the go. Not only is it easier to apply, but easier to get rid of in the chance you mess up.

13. Vaseline to make perfume last longer

A good perfume always boosts confidence but soon fades away. Rub some Vaseline on your pulse points (such as behind the ears, back of the kness, wrists, throat, inside your elbow) before applying perfume to seal the smell.
