Everyday Makeup Essentials For Girls Who Have A Busy Lifestyle
Wearing makeup can take tons of time.. and maybe that’s the reason why girls who have a busy lifestyle skip this part every morning. I do support natural beauty, but I also think that it’s important for us to be conscientious on how we look even though we’re busy hustling. Personally, I feel more motivated when I have make-up on. It gives me that push to conquer the day.
Yes, makeup can be time-consuming.. but that doesn’t mean we can’t make it easy! You don’t need to apply every makeup product on your face, especially when you don’t have much time to do it. All you need are these makeup must-haves!
Start Off With A BB Cream
BB cream can stand alone even without using foundation. It saves you time doing your makeup as it already acts as a primer, concealer, foundation, and moisturizer. It also hydrates your skin and makes your face look fresh instantly. I, personally, prefer BB cream because it gives a more fresh look compared to a foundation that has a tendency to break off or to look heavy on the face. Don’t get me wrong, if I have all the time in the day, I would definitely wear BB cream underneath foundation for that added coverage. But if you’re a busy girl and is always on the go, wearing only a BB cream can save you from looking tired or stressed.
Brow Pencil + Brow Filler
I use an eyeliner to shape my brows followed by a brow filler because honestly, I can’t live our house without doing my brows! This is probably a personal preference but I believe a lot of girls can relate to this as well. There are even times when I go out without any makeup on except for BB cream and shaped brows. Brows frame your eyes and give your face structure. More importantly, it looks your eyes stand out and more alive. Which brings me to my next point...
Having a busy lifestyle doesn’t mean you’re always stressed and tired. But more often than not, it’s what it always depicts. No matter how much makeup you put on your face.. people can still see you through your eyes. People can tell when you’re relaxed and when you don’t get enough sleep. Besides, when you talk to people, the first thing you’re going to look at is their eyes. This is exactly the reason why I believe that your everyday makeup routine must focus on making your eyes stand out.. Especially when you have a busy lifestyle.
I start my eye makeup routine with an eyeliner followed by a mascara. But If you’re the type of girl who hates mascaras, then false eyelashes are your best friend. Falsies don’t require a lot of coating. It does not smudge and you don’t need to do a lot of retouching. (PS. if you’re looking for a good quality and affordable falsies, I highly recommend Dollar Eyelash Club! I wrote a review of their product on this link.

Nude or Lighter Shade Of Lippie
Last, but definitely not the least, is of course... Lippies! The classic red lippie never gets old but an everyday makeup routine calls for a simpler and lighter shade. Nude or Light Pink are the shades I would recommend on a daily basis because it looks more natural which makes you look younger. I also find a lighter shade of lippies easier to apply, retouch and fix.
