Whether you’re looking for celebrity gossip, the best product for frizzy hair, or advice on what to wear to your cousin’s wedding, the gals at Lovelyish have got you covered. This week, a handful of the site’s staffers—Katie Kubiak, Annie Strole, and Allison Wheeler—are bringing their expertise to our blog in a series of five beauty and style how-tos.
There’s nothing more appealing on a weekday morning than hitting the snooze button. Actually, I can think of plenty things more appealing, but I try not to tease myself when I know I have to book it to work in a matter of minutes. If you’re like me, you’re kicking yourself for sleeping in by the time you reach the primping portion of your morning routine. Who has time for it?
Luckily there are so many magnificent time-saving beauty tools these days that can make you fabulous in five minutes or less.
You could use those five minutes to apply a serum, moisturizer, sunscreen, primer, and foundation, or you could take 30 seconds to apply a BB Cream and get the benefits of all of the above. Dr. Jart’s Premium Beauty Balm really blows most other BBs out of the water.
In early morning time crunches, multi-tasking your products is essential. For lips and cheeks throw on a pot rouge with your fingers. Bobbi Brown and stila both have incredible ones. In a pinch, you can always use your lipstick as a cheek color. Define your brows and your lash line with your eyebrow pencil.
Don’t waste time with wimpy mascaras! You need mascara that you can swipe on in one coat. Benefit’s They’re Real! Mascara always gets the job done.
Now you’re ready to face the day, and with a routine as snappy as that, you may even have time to brush your hair!
