Doing full makeup is so fun but let’s be honest, we don’t always have the time to go full glam. A lot of times I usually only have a few minutes to get ready in the morning. So, I put together a few tips on getting ready fast- even in five minutes! These are easy things that you can do to make yourself feel more put together. I also did an IGTV tutorial if you want to watch, which is linked below!

Tip One

First tip, is to put these Tan Luxe face drops in your moisturizer at night. By mixing them together and applying it to your face before bed you will wake up with a nice subtle glow. Having a natural tan always makes me feel better and more put together. I have been using these face drops for a while and they are definitely my favorite. (I also love Tan Luxe The Gradual for all over tanning lotion). These are definitely my two go-to products for self-tanning.

Tip Two

Second tip, is to put your hair in a low bun or ponytail parted down the middle. I think this looks so chic and it takes seconds to do! It is one of my favorite tips on getting ready fast!

Tip Three

The third tip, is to put on some hoops! My favorites, as you know are from Miranda Frye and these larger hoops are so glam! They are also super lightweight. I think gold jewelry can really instantly dress up any look- even athleisure wear! You can check out my whole blog post on Miranda Frye Here!

Tip Four

Next, I will add a little concealer! Concealer instantly makes my eyes look brighter! My favorite one is from Fenty Beauty! I love the formula and it gives a nice full coverage without being too thick. When I am only wearing concealer and not foundation, I will keep the concealer as close to my skin tone as possible-that way it blends really well!

Tip Five

Next step, I will take my Benefit Brow Pencil and lightly fill in my brows. Nothing too dramatic here, but just anywhere that is a little sparse. I finish it off with the Benefit Brow Gel-a product I have been using for years.

Tip Six

For cheeks, I use the Milk lip and cheek tint. This is a great all-around product and so easy to apply with your finger! Just gives your cheeks and lips a little color!

Tip Seven

For the lashes, when I don’t have extensions, I just curl them and then apply a quick coat of mascara! But, when I have extensions, it really takes time out of my makeup routine, which is amazing!

Bonus Tip

If you have a little extra time, feel free to add a little bronzer. I love this Charlotte Tilbury palette– the shades are amazing and it includes everything you’d need in one palette for bronzer, blush and contour!

That is it for my tips on getting ready fast! I hope these little tips will help you get ready quick and leave you feeling a little more glam then before!
