Beauty in a Rush: Hacks You Can Use

Beauty in a Rush: Hacks You Can Use

In a rush and still want to look beautiful? Keep reading for hacks to look good in a rush.


When it comes to making sure you are presentable and time is of the essence, keep things simple. First, if your skin care routine is great, you can reduce the time it takes to get ready in a rush. Another thing to consider is sunscreen. Just because you are in a rush, that does not negate the need to protect your skin. Sun damage causes aging quick. Below are some hacks for applying makeup in a rush.


No “Makeup” Look

This look alone will help cut time. There is no need to go full glam when in a rush. However, you will still look stunning. Trust, people love the look of perfect, flawless skin. This is when you reach for a good concealer. With clean skin, which is why a good skin care routine is needed, the concealer can help achieve a more even and flawless canvas. One company that has practically perfected the look of “no makeup” is Glossier. Their stretch concealer comes in 5 shades. This concealer will allow your skin to look like skin. Plus, you can apply with your hands!

Eye See You

So, let us assume that you have perfect skin already. The next best thing is to allow your eyes to be a focal point. If you don’t want to draw on your eyebrows, consider getting microblading done. That will shave off a lot of time. However, if you like your brows, just go for a clear brow gel to define and shape. A nice waterproof mascara will also go a long way. You can do both top and bottom lashes to make your eyes the star of you rush look, but in a good way.

Drop It

Try to find a liquid foundation that is full coverage. Once you have the foundation you like, just add drops to your skin and use something like the Clarisonic with the foundation brush. To go for a more matte look, apply setting powder using the press and roll method. This will cut down a lot of work.

Keep It Dry

One of the longest steps in the morning to complete, outside of your face, is your hair. If you have long hair, washing and drying can be a task. The best way to address that is with dry shampoo. Yes, you can clean your hair without water and it can still look great. You can either let your hair hang naturally, or go for an up do, such as a bun or a pony-tail.

Just spray your favorite scent and go on about your day. How perfect!
