Genius morning beauty hacks
October 29, 2017, 3:54 pm

Many women struggle with their beauty routine during a busy morning, and most are willing to skip their makeup regiment if it means catching just a few extra minutes of sleep.  However, you no longer have to choose between sleep and beauty. With some practical hacks, you can have both.

These beauty tips are so easy you will be able to follow them in your half-asleep daze, but they will make you look like you had spent hours primping. Here are some of the easiest morning beauty tips.

Invest in the right cut: It's similar to the rule fashionistas follow well: splurge on a few high-quality pieces and wear them for years. With hair, invest in a high-quality cut, and you won't need to spend precious morning time messing with tools and products.

What makes a chop stand out on its own? Go for something with a unique shape, or add volume to your flat hair with layers.

Do your makeup on the go:  Save your final touches — like mascara, cheek tint, and lipstick — for your commute. It might annoy others, but applying the less-involved products on the subway or bus will shave minutes off your routine at home. But you might want to apply messier things, like foundation, before you get on a crowded train.

BB cream has got you covered: Instead of putting on face lotion, SPF, and foundation individually, invest in one great BB cream. Pick a formula that can hydrate and reduce the look of fine lines, plus offers SPF 35 sun protection.

Skip liquid liner: Nobody has time to clean up a messy, liner-dripped face in the morning. Stick to less precarious products like pencil liner, which will give you the perfect line without the risk of running — and therefore the need to do damage control.

Plan your makeup the night before: Just as you would plan your next day's outfit the night before, plan your makeup with it. Pick out the exact shades and products you'll use, so you're not stuck hemming and hawing the next morning.

Keep your staple products together and in one place, like BB cream or foundation, highlighter, black liner, and mascara. Then pick out whatever shades you want to use the next day, and set them next to your staples. For example, if you're going to wear a pastel-heavy outfit the next day, then choose an eye shadow, blush, and lipstick in complementary pastel shades.

Stick with neutral tones:  When you are in a rush, you can't afford to think too long and hard about your color palette. Just go with all neutral colors for your entire face, like tan, taupe, and peach. Chances are they will all go together.
