Time is a luxury that gets harder to afford by the day. What do you do if you have ran out of time to attend a special occasion and you only have very few minutes to getting there. Before you cue the familiar panic, know this: with a few key tips and tricks, you can still arrive looking fresh, polished, and chic. I think most females would need this tips, especially my girlfriend who spends most of her time in getting ready for an occasion. One of the steps you need to take when your getting late is to: Take 30sec to apply your concealer: Hide dark circles and blotchiness by applying concealer in a few key areas. Start by dabbing a brightening concealer in the inner corners of your eyes, then apply it down the bridge of your nose and anywhere else where there’s redness. No need to blend just yet—you’ll do that in the next step. Apply your bb Cream: Now is not the time for perfectly applied foundation. Instead, grab a BB cream or Smashbox’s and blend it into your skin using a beauty sponge or your fingers—the sheer formula will prevent any telltale streaks. Make sure to blend in your concealer as you apply! Spend one minute to apply your mascara and make your browse sexy.: A dead giveaway that you rushed through your beauty routine? Unruly brows. Take a minute to tame them by brushing through them with a clean spooly. Then, set them in place and add a touch of color with a tinted brow. Use another 2 minutes to brush your eyelashes: Skip the eyeliner and fake wide-awake eyes instantly by curling your lashes and adding a coat of lengthening mascara like Benefit’s They’re Real! . Hold a business card up behind your lashes to prevent mascara from getting on your eyelid. No Q-tip cleanup needed! Spend another 1 minute in applying your blush and tinting your lips: Dab a berry-colored gel blush, in Flush, into the apples of your cheeks with your fingers, then blend out with an angled blush brush. Pat the rest of the stain onto your lips for a subtle kiss of color. Burn It: Today will not be the day you showcase a head full of luscious, perfect curls—but that doesn’t mean your bedhead can’t be tamed. Gather your locks into a sleek sock bun, or spritz a texturizing spray, through your ends and pin them into an upside-down topknot. Messy chic at its best Spritz +Smile: On your way out the door, spray your pulse points with an energizing fragrance. Then, take a deep breath and smile—arriving at your destination with grace is always the last (and most important) step.
