Everyone knows that the sleep you get after your alarm rings for the first time is precious. Leaving your bed in the mornings is the most difficult break up we have to go through every single day. But those few extra moments in bed can cost us dearly. They mean having to rush through our morning routine, skincare and makeup. Or worse, end up being late to work. But what if we told you that there is a way to get through the long process of getting ready or to be more precise to get your makeup done in less than five minutes? Here are ten hacks that’ll help you get you ready in a jiffy.

  1. LINE IT: Get your eyeliner right with tape: Tape the corners of your eyes to get the winged look right every time. This trick will save you those extra minutes spent correcting your liner.
  2. OLD SCHOOL: Use lipstick as blush: Your lipstick can work extremely well as a blush. Just dab some on to your cheeks, blend and you’re good to go. 
  3. EYEBROWS: Eye pencil for the brows: Use a brown brow pencil to fill in your brows. Filling your brows can change your entire look.
  4. LESS IS MORE: You can skip your foundation altogether just by applying your concealer in the right place, in the right way. Just dab on some concealer under the eyes, around the nose and chin and you should be good to go.
  5. MULTITASKING: Just having all the things you need in one place can save you a lot of time. Invest in a palette, that has eye shadows, bronzers and blush all in one.
  6. BYE BYE BRUSHES: It can be difficult to do your makeup with your fingers if you’re a pro with the brushes, but ditching the brushes can save you some time. 
  7. EASY-PEASY: Ditch the liquids, go for an eye pencil and a lipstick instead.
  8. HASHTAG #: Simply draw a hashtag at the ends of your eyes and then blend it into your eyelid for the smokey effect.
  9. WHITE & BRIGHT: It instantly opens your eyes and will save you the time of doing the whole liner routine.
  10. POUT:  A bold lip can take the attention from any problem areas or the lack of makeup. It will make you look ready and awake.
