Tips for looking presentable in a Jiffy
Picture this scenario. You just rolled out of bed. You are looking like a hot mess. Your guests will be at your house for Christmas breakfast in 2 hours. You want to spend 30 minutes tops on getting ready. Here are some suggestions!
I personally would skip foundation, but if you need something in a pinch, powder foundation is a quick way to get coverage. I've been loving Laura Geller's Baked foundation. To save time, I don't do a complete eye look. I definitely fill in my eyebrows!! Black liner on the waterline, and tightline give the effect of full lashes. I curl my lashes, and apply two coats of mascara. To make you look more awake, highlight the inner corners of your eyes with a matte eyeshadow (like Brulee from Wet N Wild!)
This is a key part of the look! If you aren't wearing foundation, this will brighten your face. I love wearing bright pinks, reds, and burgundy colors.
If you hair was styled the day before, this is perfect! It has some texture, so you can recurl the straight pieces and wear your hair down. Or if it looks horrible, you can always pull it into a high bun, or a low chignon using one of my favorite tools the Goody Spin Pins. The key to all these looks: dry shampoo! I can't live without it! It soaks up my oil, gives my hair volume, and added texture!
Add some finishing touches, brush your teeth, apply perfume, and slip into something comfortable and Christmassy and you are ready to go!
I hope this helps your Christmas morning routine, and lets you feel confident in those pictures!
Do you get spiffed up in the morning, or just go au naturale? Leave me a comment and let me know!
