Due to the accelerated pace of life and everyday rush and delays, we often have very little time for fixing daily makeup. That’s why we bring you eight clever quick-tips that will considerably help you when it comes to makeup and saving time.

1. Eyebrows

If you belong to group of people who look at least 10 times better when their eyebrows are neat, let it be your no. 1 priority.

However, instead of spending a lot of time grooming them, as a first aid, you can use the pen to correct irregular areas. Then darken them a little bit with mascara to get a more natural look. Lately, the Japanese method of drawing eyebrows is getting more and more popular. It is semi-permanent method that will help you skip pen for correcting irregular areas. And the best part is that it will last when you hit the gym, beach or a pool. Eyebrows drawn with this method will last for around two years and they look very good.

2. Color

Do you have time to put on a blush, an eye shadow and a lipstick? Usually not. Therefore, experts recommend cream blush in color that can be applied to the cheeks, eyelids and lips, even nails in a matter of seconds.

For eyelids use eye shadow brush and brighten your look. To apply it on your cheeks use a blusher brush. But don’t stop on your cheeks, apply it on the temples as well to lift up your cheekbones. Mix a bit of blusher with a pinch of eye cream and use the color paste you just created to add some color to your lips. For a glossy effect use clear lip gloss instead of eye cream. Mix it with nail varnish and apply as normal varnish.

3. Eyelashes

Mascara is one of the most important items when doing makeup. But often we do not have the time to carefully perfect eyelashes with brush, and then wait for the mascara to dry.

For fast and efficient arrangement of eyelashes try eyelash curler. Curled eyelashes will frame and define the eyes nicely, and the effect will be almost the same as if you applied mascara. And in this case, you do not have to worry about smearing your mascara. In case you did not know, those small pads on curler are replaceable. So when they get dirty after multiple usage of a curler buy new one. Also experts say that you should not buy cheap ones if you love your eyelashes.

4. Eyes

The eyes are the first ones that tell if you did not have time to get makeup on, or that you did not sleep. Apply concealer on the upper eyelids and under the eyes to conceal dark circles and redness, and then put a little translucent powder.

Add a little mascara and you will get rested appearance. Curling your eyelashes will also help with this problem because curled eyelashes make eyes look more open. Also be sure to even up your tan, which will do even better than just using concealer. Lining up your upper lashes with vibrant color is another great trick to help your eyes look more rested. Use two tones. Black for area next to the eyelashes and vibrant color above.

5. Bronzer

Bronze powder will make your face look like it took on a healthy rosy color imitating natural suntan. Only few brush strokes will do the trick.

Apply it after a concealer and foundation on the cheekbones, at forehead on the edges closest to hair, on each side of the nose, on the bottom edges of the eyes and along your jaw line. Don’t overdo it, it is better to apply it in thin coats and apply it multiple times on areas where you want it to be darker than to do it at once. Bronzer is also a great way for contouring. Correctly applied bronzer will form shape of number 3 on each side of your face. It is a great makeup tool if you use it correctly.

6. Corrector

Corrector will quickly and easily conceal defects on your skin, making your face look flawless. Use your fingers to apply it to the circles around the eyes, the reddish area around the nostrils, and on the inner corners of the eyes.

It is important to know thing or two about colors to know how to apply corrector properly. Since it comes in green, yellow, lavender or apricot, you may wonder how it is supposed to conceal defections on your skin. The thing is that green one neutralizes red irregularities, yellow does it to purple, and lavender to yellow, while apricot neutralizes blue ones. This happens because they are contrast colors so they neutralize each other. If you want to understand it better research color wheel and read about contrasting colors.

7. Lips

Lip gloss, lipstick, lip balm… there are a lot of options with which you are confronted every morning. Choose a product that combines all of the above, such as, for example, hydrating lip gloss color.

It is not just about the color anymore, you should take care of your lips health. While many women use sunscreen for they face, they skip lips, even though lips can develop skin cancer like any other part of the face. So be sure that combo product you chose has at least SPF 15. Also be aware of products that last all day, they usually dry out your lips and they chap because of it. If you need it due to work be sure to use lip balm whenever you are not wearing long-lasting products.

8. Tan

Many women feel like that they need a lot less makeup when they are tanned. Luckily today there are many self-tanning products, from wipes to products that gradually “develop” and make complexion seem darker during the day.

Be sure to use these products correctly. Knees, elbows and other joints are the most sensitive area for applying. If you get too much of it on this area you will look dirty and stained. But with practice you will get it to perfection. Advantage of these products is that they are much safer than direct exposure to sun, especially for those that have pale tan. Dermatologists also agree that they are safer than tanning salons and exposing to UV light.
