Looking Beautiful in Under 20 mins!!

Hey beauties, short on time? Got kids or school or just busy period? read on...

Applying makeup under 20 minutes:

Cleanse and lightly apply your favorite moisturizer mixed with a dab of glowtion - that is a skin illuminator designed to make you glow but not sparkle. They are many out there - Revlon for example make a great one at a decent price.

Apply a fluid foundation with your fingertips and blend around jaw line.

Press powder into your skin with puff, and brush off excess with a brush. This gives your makeup the staying power it needs for a whole day.

Use a squirt of eye drops in the morning, to instantly brighten your sleepy eyes. Did you also know that eye drops applied over a pimple before you makeup reduces the redness instantly?

Use a powder shadow smeared along your lash lines with soft sponge applicator for a soft, but defined day look.

Apply one coat of lashing-plumping mascara.

Brush your eyebrows into shape, and use a soft pencil to quickly define them if needed.

Smile big and apply your blusher to the fattest part of your cheek with a big brush, slightly and lightly extending the color towards your ear. Go easy, you don't want clown cheeks. Choosing a sheer color with light reflecting particles will help avoid this.

Apply one coat of colored lip gloss for soft, natural lips with a healthy shine.

If you've run out of your usual concealer, use some of the dried up foundation in the bottom of the bottle, it covers up and matches your foundation perfectly. Remember, if you make a make-up mistake and your time is of the essence, just dip a cotton bud in your liquid foundation and wipe away the mistake.

If your hair is a wreck then try holding your head upside down and brushing vigorously. Apply a dollop of hair wax rubbed between palms and loosley pull back hair and fasten with your favorite clips.

Now you are picture ready! :-)

Stay Blessed and Happy Sunday!
