Hit The Snooze Button Once More: 5 Makeup Tips For Lazy Girls
Every morning there’s a mental struggle between waking up 10 minutes early to put makeup and sleeping in and look dull at work. And if you’re a lazy girl, you’ll probably pick the latter. But enough with showing up every morning with dark circles and acne marks. We show you five ways you can look totally gorgeous without putting in too much effort.
1. The Easy Base
Alright, let’s see what you need for that perfect base—moisturiser, primer, concealer, foundation, compact powder, setting spray and sunscreen. Phew, we’re tired just listing it, we can only imagine why you skip this! But we have one solution for you—the BB Cream. It acts as a lightly tinted moisturiser that creates an even base on your skin as well as covers up those marks. Carry it in your bag and apply it while commuting. It’s that simple, yes.

2. One Product, Two Applications
You need a glossy pout and lightly blushed cheeks, but trying to pick the right tinted gloss shade and applying blush will take up more than five minutes of your morning time. Try this instead: keep a light pink- or red-based tinted gloss in your bag and apply it lightly on your cheeks as well as wear it on your lips. Top it off with a compact on your face and you’re ready faster than you can cook Maggi.

3. Pretty Peepers
Let’s count the number of products you need to highlight your eyes everyday—kajal, eyeliner, lash curler and mascara. Now you can do most of this using simply a kajal pencil and spoon. Use the pencil as eyeliner too and take help of the spoon to get winged liner. You can even use the spoon to curl your lashes. Check out all the uses of a spoon here.

4. From Day to Night
Going for a party post-work? Carry a bright lipstick and glitter gloss with you. The lipstick and gloss will add a pop of colour to your face and the gloss can also double up as a mild glittery eyeshadow. Ensure that you use compact after you apply the gloss.

5. Quick Makeup Removal
Need to hit the sack when you reach home? Don’t make the cardinal sin of sleeping with makeup on. Carry moisturised wet-wipes with you and remove your makeup on the way home. Splash your face with water when you reach, and you’re totally ready for your beauty sleep.
