  • Tinted moisturizer: When you don’t have time to carry out a lengthy makeup routine, a double-duty product like a tinted moisturizer is the perfect thing for you! A tinted moisturizer will give you both a healthy natural glow and also serve as a perfect base for other makeup products. In addition, it will give you the much needed hydration that your skin needs.
  • Eyeshadow stick: When you need to makeup your entire face in under 10 minutes, you can’t afford to mess around with a bunch of colors and techniques, specifically when it comes to your eyes. Instead, we suggest using an eye-shadow stick. These sticks allow you to apply the product in one fell swoop.
  • Eyebrow pencil: Eyebrows can play such a strong role in sculpting your face, so don’t miss this step! Not only is it easy, but it is also very quick to do! Just grab an eyebrow pencil and fill in your natural eyebrow gaps!
  • Mascara: You won’t believe how wonderful you can look by simply applying a coat of mascara onto your eye lashes. Use a curler to curl your eyelashes followed by a coat of mascara. You can find mascara in different colors, but the most common are black and brown.
  • Lip moisturizing balm + color: If you’re not one for heavy lip makeup or simply don’t have time to apply it with a mirror, we have the perfect solution for you!

Tips for Low-Maintenance Makeup

Here are a few quick and easy no-effort-needed makeup tips:

  • Complete your entire skincare routine with a face wash and sunscreen. Wash your face every morning and night. In addition, apply sunscreen every time you go outside. If you have discolored patches on your skin, it is most likely due to the loss of your skin’s ability to protect itself from the sun.
  • Complete your makeup collection with a brow brush, mineral powder, mascara and a lip balm. Girls who religiously follow a makeup routines always look polished. But investing such time in makeup everyday is not everyone’s cup of tea. Therefore, mineral powder will help even out those discolored patches on your skin. A brow brush will be sufficient in keeping your eyebrows controlled, mascara will give a polished look to your eyes and lip balm will prevent your lips from chapping.
  • As far as hair care is concerned, avoid heat as far as possible. When it comes to hair, we recommend avoiding too many dyes, heat products and chemical-based hair products. In order to avoid heat, plan your shower in such a way that you have enough time to let your hair air-dry naturally instead of needing to blow dry it. There are also some product-less and heat-less products that you can use to accentuate your hair’s natural texture. For instance, if you have silky, straight hair, you can braid it. If you have wavy hair, consider making a: top-knot, bouncy ponytail or pull it back with a cute hair clip. If you have curly hair, leave them lose or tie your hair into a single side braid. Whatever type of hair you have, learn to embrace it and make the best use of it without applying unnecessary heat and chemicals.
