Quick/ early makeup ideas
I'm going to be a freshman this coming school year, and i have yet to find any makeup ideas that are quick and realtively easy. Also i need to look somewhat awake since i am in zero period which starts at 6:20.....Help!
6:20am?!?! Oh wow, for the first time, I feel thankful that I wake up at 7am everyday for highschool. I'm assuming you do the cleansing, (toning), moisturizing routine at night. Unless you have super oily or acne prone skin, just rinse and scrub face with water+towel, apply SPF moisturizer, then:
- curl lashes
- tinted lip balm with SPF (Fresh Sugar SPF 15 if you have dry lips, Maybelline Babylips SPF20 if your lips are not dry)
Done. If you have uneven skintone or redness, use tinted moisturizer with SPF instead of plain SPF moisturizer. If you have blemish or undereye circle, use concealer. Otherwise I prefer to skip the face make up step, so I can nap with my head on the desk at any opportunity without worrying about smearing my make up everywhere.
I get ready for work in 20 minutes, and it's a matter of skin care, make up, and getting dressed.
1. Wash (you can skip this step if your skin isn't oily or if your skin is still feeling fresh from cleansing the night before)
2. Treat (if you have any treatment products like acne medications, spot treatments, serums you use)
1. Primer (if you have problematic skin like oil issues or discoloration to neutralize and correct, find a primer that best suits these issues to help combat them, for example a water based/mattifying primer for oily skin, a green tinted primer to neutralize red)
2. Concealer (spot apply on problem spots like pimples, red areas, under the eyes) a creamy formula will be more emollient and blend better with the skin for on-the-go applications)
3. Tinted powder (apply with a large brush just to blend the concealer in and give a light evening out to your skin tone, my faves include Smashbox HALO, Cargo's Blu-Ray powder, and Benefit's Hello Flawless)
4. Blush (don't worry about bronzer, blush is a quick way to give a healthy dose of color to your skin, Tarte's Amazonian Clay blushes are beautiful and go on soft and very natural)
5. Tinted eye primer (I love Sin from Urban Decay, it has a shimmery champagne tint and looks like a light bit of cream shadow)
6. Eyeliner (choose a creamy, long wearing pencil as you don't have to be as precise with application and you can smudge it on lids as shadow, I love UD's 24/7 Glide on Liners)
8. Lip balm or lip gloss (requires less time to get perfect than lipstick and the shine gives a very fresh look to th face).
ok make sure your face is moisturized and you can skip face makeup a lid primer (I recomend UD primer) and a cream shadow curl lashes and use mascaea This is my routine and it takes about 5 min tops
Man, I remember 6:00am classes too! Yes, looking awake is important and so is sleep. For a early wake me up ... I would suggest the following:
1. Black Mascara
2. Cream shadow for all over
3. Peachy-Pink blush
These are essential to giving you a pick me up that is not time consuming.
Benefit- They're Real! Mascara (http://www.sephora.com/they-re-real-mascara-P28930
Buxom- Buxom Stay- There eye Shadow in Mutt (http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?s
I love this product because you can use your fingers and apply as much as you want. I love wearing this on top of eyeshadow and alone.

These are some options. Private message me if you have any questions.
Hey girl! I was a freshman last year and the time predicament is the same for me! I know it's a pain, but here is a beauty routine that usually works for me!
When you wake up, washing your face is an option, but it's actually better not to. If you just wash your face really well at night , then whatever oil is on your face in the morning are natural oils your body makes while you sleep so your face isn't dry. So just splash your face with some cool water to wake yourself up and then pat it dry.
For me, I usually don't use concealer unless I want to cover up a really noticable blemish, in which case I use Neutrogena Skin Clearing Blemish Concealer, which drys up pimples and is good for your skin while it covers the blemish nicely.
I usually just dust on mineral powder foundation ( I use the one from the Sephora Collection ) to matify my complexion ,and use a little extra under my eyes to cover up those dark circles.
Blush is always an option, and I would recommend it if you have pale skin. But if you have naturally rosy cheeks, then you don't have to worry about that!
A nice way to finish a look is with eyeliner and/or mascara. Use a softer color if you're going for a more natural look. And sometimes, you can even use darker eyeshadow as a substitute. And black mascara is always good.
And for lips, just use a lip balm, tinted or not, it's your choice!
Hope this helped!
