- Apply antiperspirants at night
It might feel weird at first, but antiperspirant is actually better applied overnight, as the ingredients can get to work on blocking sweat more effectively.
- Only use the products you need
Sometimes we apply on a full face of make up every day without thinking about what we can get away with skipping.
Not everyone needs a foundation, and some can rock a natural lip look, so make your own beauty hack by seeing what steps you can leave out and take advantage of your natural beauty instead!
- Mix moisturizer, sunscreen, and primer together
Or choose a genius multitasking product that combines all three!
- Use hairspray as a make-up setting spray
Whilst fixing your hair, spray a fine mist of hairspray in front of you and walk through it to set your make up at the same time. You can also use it on an old mascara wand to set your eyebrows.
- Use an at-home tint the night before so you can skip your brows
If you want to spend less time painstakingly shaping and filling your brows, then try an at-home tint before you go to bed in the evening.
They take just minutes to apply and last up to 6 weeks, which means a lot more time in the mornings. This kit will give you everything you need and comes in a range of colors.
