After I got out of the shower, I combed out my hair and applied my Argan Magic argan oil. I let my hair air dry while I applied my makeup. As far as makeup went, I filled in my brows using my Rimmel brow pencil. Then I used my MAKE eyeshadow in burnt umber on my lower lash line. I swept on some Maybelline color tattoo in Barely Branded, and curled my lashes and applied 2 coats of Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes mascara. (Believe me, there was no time to use a crease and highlight color!!) I used my Tarte lipsurgence in Joy for my lips to give me a nice pop of color. Again, no time for face makeup!
Since my hair was about 75% dry, I blew it dry the rest of the way to make it completely dry. I teased my crown, and pulled it into a quick side bun using my spin pins. (Those spin pins are a lifesaver!) I added a quick spritz of hairspray, did a double check in the mirror and got dressed. Total time was probably 20 minutes. It was pretty stressful!
Here are a few tips to help you get ready in a pinch!
- Focus your attention on one thing. For me, it was my eyes so I made sure to swipe some color on there, along with mascara and eyeliner.
- Make sure to fill in your brows. It takes seconds, and frames your face.
- Use a pop of color on your lips to brighten your face when you don't have time for a full face of makeup.
- USE MASCARA!
- A side bun always is the way to go in a hurry. It looks chic and looks like you took a lot of time on it.
