It is possible that you can still create flawless makeup in the morning, even when you are late for work. Here we have put together a simple guide on how to get a flawless make-up look in under 10 minutes, ideal for when you are running late in the morning.
First thing, before you start creating flawless makeup when you are late for work, start off with hydrating yourself. Dehydration will show on your skin, so drink a glass of water upon waking and this will help you look more awake and refreshed. Cleanse your skin with whatever product is part of your morning routine, using whatever suits your skin type; this could be a cream cleanser, a facial wash, or just a splash of cool water. Whatever cleansing method you choose however, always use a good moisturiser afterward. These two steps of hydrating and moisturising will make your face appear more youthful and awake. Next, it’s time to apply a quick face of flawless makeup.
A liquid foundation is easy to apply, it will glide onto your face smoothly and evenly, and can be blended with your fingertips. Use some concealer on your ring finger, patting it into the skin to add extra coverage under the eyes, this will hide dark circles caused by lack of sleep or general tiredness. Concealer can be used in the same way to cover any other blemishes on the face.
Cream blush products are simple to apply and can be added to the apple of the cheeks to give the face a healthy glow. Choose a natural shade in keeping with your face’s natural blush, and this can be done in less than 30 seconds. Be sure to blend well for a flawless result.
In order to create flawless makeup, less is more, so don’t even try to do any elaborate eye makeup when you are in a hurry. A sweep of a neutral eyeshadow, or translucent powder, is enough to give your eyelids some coverage, and then finish off the look with some mascara and some brow gel. If you feel you have sufficient time then you can use some eyelash curlers as well as eyeliner, however, for a natural daytime look, not everyone uses these items. Finish off your flawless makeup in a hurry with some lipgloss or lipstick.
This simple makeup routine can be done in less than 10 minutes, resulting in a face of flawless makeup when you are late for work. Finishing touches can be done if need be when you actually get to work. For example, if you want to create more make-up detail such as a cat flick with black eyeliner, or a brighter lip, then this can be done when you arrive and have a few minutes at your desk.
The secret to flawless make-up, be it done in a hurry or not, is blending. Be sure to blend the foundation, concealer, blush and any other products used and you will achieve a flawless face of perfection. No one would guess that you slept in and were running late for work at all!
