Let’s face it, there are mornings when we don’t have an hour to complete our hair and makeup. When I’m in a pinch, I go for my 15 minute routine. I opt for products that eliminate the need for extra steps or do not need brushes. A makeup routine gets bogged down with the number of products and steps. I do not get fancy with outer Vs or smoky eyes. I keep it fresh, simple and flawless.
So, what do I reach for?
1. Hot rollers: Since they heat up in minutes, I turn them on while I apply my foundation. Then I roll and allow them to set during the rest of my routine. This means I can knock out my hair and makeup at the same time. You can blast them with cool air from your hairdryer when you’re really in a hurry.
8. Wet’n Wild Mega Impact: This inexpensive mascara delivers serious volume without flaking or weighing down your lashes.
9. Neutrogena ColorStick: This lip product is an all in one treat. I can swipe it on, get great pigmentation, shine and moisture.
