In the morning, everything is timed: 10 minutes in the shower, 20 for breakfast, a 30 minute commute, and then the workday begins. Because there's a lot to do and not much time to do it (hey, we need our sack time), we tend to keep our weekday beauty looks simple- but that doesn't mean they have to be boring!
Believe it or not, it doesn't have to take a lot of time to create a high-impact look- just choose one feature to play up and go! To give you some inspiration, we've picked three looks we love that can be achieved in 10 minutes or less...
Eyes: create a captivating gaze
So, today you want a look that draws attention to your sparkling eyes. One word: eyeliner! For subtle definition that flatters any eye color, opt for a shimmery bronze or gold kohl liner. To get the look, simply use a BB cream to unify your complexion and then line the top and bottom lash lines from corner to corner. Leave your lashes bare, brush through your brows, and you're all set!
Face: a glowing complexion
Many people believe that the trick to looking awake is mascara. It certainly helps, but the real trick to looking fresh-faced lies in blush. Hide signs of fatigue and add radiance to your skin with an illuminating primer, followed by a BB cream. Then, apply a wash of soft color to your cheeks, creating the appearance of a healthy flush.
Lips: perfect your pout
Bright, audacious lip colors are more popular than ever. If you've got tired eyes, draw the attention away from them by applying a dramatic lipstick. Use concealer to mask any dark circles or blemishes, sweep highlighter over the high points of your face, and finish with your favorite lipstick!
