We have those mornings when we want to look put together for class, but time always seems to be the obstacle. Who wants to spend the morning dealing with makeup when we could be using the time to squeeze in a few more minutes of sleep?

Here are a few time-saving beauty tips to try tomorrow morning:

1. Skip foundation.


Foundation can do wonders for covering up problem areas, but it takes a lot of time and energy to blend it perfectly. For those mornings when you need to be out the door in a snap, use a concealer to target your problem areas, and use a translucent powder to create an even skin tone.

Try: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, Revlon Photo-Ready Concealer

2. Don’t just use bronzer for your face.


While bronzer is an easy way to sculpt and liven up the face, it can also work as an eye shadow. Use your ring finger or a fluffy blending brush to sweep the bronzer over the eyelid and in the crease to create some subtle contouring for the eyes! 

Try: Benefit Hoola Bronzer, NYC Sunny Bronzer

3. Use mascara, if nothing else.



Mascara is a staple in my beauty routine. With just a couple coats, it can make the eyes look bigger and more defined. For those hard to curl lashes, go for a waterproof formula as those have been found to hold the curl.

Try: Benefit They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara, Covergirl Lashblast Volume Mascara

4. Opt for a tinted brow gel.


We all want our brows to be on fleek now, don’t we? Tinted brow gels generally create a naturally full brow in a short time. Meanwhile, pencils and powders create a stronger brow, but are much more time consuming.

Try: Benefit Gimme Brow, L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Plumper

5. Use a highlighter.


Nothing says “I’m awake and ready for this day” like a glowing complexion. Not only will a highlighter make your skin look healthier, but it can also lighten up those eyes if you apply a smidge to the center of your lids.

Try: Mac Mineralized Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle, Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips

I am currently in college studying Communications at UC Davis. Not sure where I'm going to end up, but I would like to think that I know what direction I'm headed in. Metaphorically, you could say that I am lost in (hopefully) the right direction. I enjoy the internet, traveling, fictional worlds, watercolor paintings, music, animals, good food, funny people, red poppies, fashion & beauty and seeing people be happy.
