All you working girls out there! Here are 10 smart beauty tips that you can include in your daily beauty regime!
Are you someone who rushes to work every morning and finds almost no time to pay attention to skin care and makeup? With so much on your plate, we understand how hard it can be to maintain a good beauty regimen. So whether it’s about taking care of your skin, and grooming yourself well with the use of the right hair and makeup products, we know that you find no time to spare in your busy schedule. To help you out, we listed down the top 10 smart beauty tips that every busy working girl can try to maintain her work load while still giving enough attention to her appearance every day.
1. Dry shampoo:
On those super busy days, dry shampoo will be your best friend. If you haven’t had the time to wash your hair because you slept late last night and hit the snooze button one too many times in the morning, then dry shampoo can come to your rescue. Just spray on some dry shampoo and comb your hair with your fingers to spread the product all over. The dry shampoo will absorb all the excess oil and add volume to your hair making it look beautifully styled.
2. Baby powder:
If you don’t have any dry shampoo at hand, but have been called for an emergency meeting, what do you do? Always carry a little bit of baby powder in your bag and sprinkle some on the crown of your head right before your meeting. Rub it into the scalp and spread it all over. This absorbs the oiliness and gives your hair volume and makes it look temporarily clean. It’s perfect for those unexpected and unannounced meetings.
3. Tinted sunscreen:
If you don’t have time to go through the entire ritual of applying moisturizer, then sunscreen and then your foundation, not to worry, tinted sunscreen has got you covered. Just apply a small amount all over your face just like you would apply your foundation. Tinted sunscreen comes with the benefits of all the 3 products – moisturizer, sunscreen and foundation to give you a flawless look. A multitasking product for a multitasking girl!
4. Tinted lip balm:
If you find yourself without any time to keep refreshing your lipstick, just keep a small tinted lip balm in your bag. You can dab it on multiple times in a day and along with keeping your lips moisturized, it also adds a hint of color. Even if you have no other makeup on, just a splash of color on the lips can do wonders for your look.
5. Quick manicure:
For those days when you can’t afford to sit around waiting for your nail polish to dry, you no longer need to bear unkempt nails. Give yourself a quick manicure by rubbing your hands with an exfoliating scrub or face wash and then apply the nail color of your choice. To quick dry the nail color, just dip your hands in a bowl of cold water, and voila, in a couple of minutes you are good to go.
6. Hair pin hack:
If you don’t wash and style your hair every day, applying hair spray is probably not such a good idea. But if you still want your hairdo to hold all day long, what do you do? Just spray your bobby pins with hair spray and use those to clip your hair in place.
7. Baby wipes:
After a long day, when you don’t have time to wash your face and redo your makeup before you head out again, keep a pack of baby wipes handy. They clean the makeup right off and you don’t need to wash your face and moisturize again either.
8. Heat-less waves:
If you want to try a new look at work, but don’t want to waste time curling your hair with an iron in the morning, just spray some water on your hair at night and wear it in braids overnight to wake up to gorgeous curls. You can also try rolling your hair around socks before you sleep to get stunning loose waves.
9. Perfect mascara:
Don’t you just hate it when you end up getting mascara all over your eyelid when you apply it in a hurry? Next time just hold a card right behind your lashes and apply your mascara with ease without any worry of smudge marks.
10. Line and curl:
Did you know you can line and curl your lashes at the same time? Just draw a small line across the edge of your eye lash curler with a liner or kohl and curl away as usual. You’ll be left with gorgeous lashes as well as a delicate line of kajal right across the eyelid.
