Here are my three…
1. It’s timer time
Use a timer, and place it right within your line of sight (where you can’t possibly ignore it).
I use the timer on my iPhone (and I disable the screen lock feature, so the display doesn’t go to sleep), but a good old-fashioned kitchen egg timer works, too. Anything with a countdown timer or an unmistakeable alarm… Just watching the clock doesn’t work for me. I guess it’s too easy to ignore, LOL!
2. As Spock would say, “Organization is logical.”
Keep all of your most important makeup essentials together, organized and accessible, in a way that makes sense to you.
I keep my most-used products in a clear tray with different compartments. That way I’m not wasting time rutting around in different bags and drawers trying to find my everyday essentials like primer, foundation, concealer, etc.
3. Let’s keep it clean, people
Clean your brushes after every use so they’re in good shape when you need them.
Seriously, I don’t even want to think about how much time I used to waste looking for clean brushes while getting ready. Now, whenever I’m done doing my makeup — if not right then, then later that night — I thoroughly clean my brushes (or at least give them a quick once-over with Wet Ones Wipes).
