Deciding what to wear — clothing, colors and makeup — usually devours the lion’s share of my getting ready time in the morning.
Seriously, I can spend 15 minutes deliberating over/between black, and purplish black liner.
Ah, the life and times of a beauty addict. (Sigh…)
Here’s something that really helps though: when I simply don’t have time for major life decisions like whether to wear a black or a purplish black liner, I turn to the tiny makeup bag on my vanity, which is dedicated to essentials.
It always contains eight things…
- Brow pencil
- A nude gloss
- A bright lipstick
The specific products will change, depending on my whims, current kicks and fancies, but the kinds of products stay the same.
Restricting my choices this way prevents some of the dilly-dallying I’m prone to and prevents many of the long-winded internal makeup debates I have with myself. (Matte or shimmer blush? Cream or powder bronzer? Highlighter? No highlighter? Lipstick and/or gloss?).
Added bonus? When I’ve totally blown my schedule and I’m already running late, I can just grab the little bag and bolt. Worst case scenario, I can do my makeup on the way to wherever I’m going.
No matter how much I hate rushing (Gaaaaah!), sometimes it can’t be helped. I’ll do anything for new ways to save time and look sharp. Got any good time-saving makeup tips to share? Please say yes!
