Out-the-Door Makeup

Being a college student, I have those push-the-snooze-button-til-the-last-possible-minute mornings all too often. I usually just throw on some moisturizer and go, but sometimes ya just need to look like you put in a little effort. Maybe you're running late for a meeting or for work, or maybe you just need to even out your skintone. Here are a few simple tricks that make a huge difference!

If you're really running late, just massage on some foundation with your fingertips. I pretty much only use my fingers on a regular basis (unless I'm working on others!); I just think it gives a nicer, well-blended finish. Just make sure your hands are clean! And if you need it, some under eye concealer.

Another quick trick to give your face some more definition is to highlight. You can use a light shadow or concealer. I just did my inner corners and under the brow for simplicity's sake, but it makes a huge difference.

Now if you have just a few more seconds to spare, add some mascara and lipgloss!

Three simple steps that make a world of difference!

Before: As you can tell by my hair, this must have been one of those days! haha :)


So simple... Very little effort, less than five minutes!

Hope this was helpful!
