If you’re finding yourself strapped for time every morning, then this post to help get your makeup ready is perfect for you. These multi-tasking products will get you out the door in no time, and you’ll look primped, polished, and put together. So on your marks, get set…
Before you start on your makeup, concentrate on your hair.
Hair can look a few shades darker when dirty, all thanks to the natural oils produced on your scalp. Tinted dry shampoo not only extends the life of your blow-dry and freshens up oily locks, but the hint of colour also blends in with your roots, hiding regrowth as well.
Try: Batiste Coloured Dry Shampoo, $12.95 As for your complexion, look for a formula like a BB cream that will give you a touch of coverage and can keep your skin hydrated at the same time, just like a moisturiser. Plus, the colour is buildable – simply dab it over pigmented areas or problem spots.
Try: Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF30+, $60 Go for a multi-purpose tint to add colour to cheeks and lips. A gel formula will melt straight into your skin and provide long-lasting colour, without it running down your face halfway through the day.
Try: The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain Red, $21.95 To finish, apply a neutral-coloured polish such as nude or beige. Try something that incorporates a base coat, strengthener and top coat in one, so you won’t have to juggle so many products at once.
Try: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Shore Enough, $14.95.
