It’s easy for me to get caught up focusing on techniques for fancy, full face makeup looks. I mean thats the most challenging and polished and fun, so it’s really tempting to talk about that all the time. But what about those days where you need to get out the door really quickly, you don’t care if you look fancy and you just want to look polished enough that people won’t ask if you have the flu?
Usually the go to move is to pop on some BB Cream, maybe fill in the brows a little bit and throw on some lip balm. That’s not a bad start at all but I find when I do that someone inevitably still asks me if I’m tired or if everything is ok…. and I’m like yup I’m good, this is just my face. I like to avoid that scenario and I’ve found that taking about sixty seconds to do a few small things to the eye area can really help you look more awake super quickly.
I figure most of you guys probably don’t dig when people ask that either. We know they mean well but nobody likes to be reminded that they look slightly more undead than usual, so here is what I do that takes practically no time at all and makes you look more awake.
So with those three super quick techniques you can still get out of the house in no time, but look more awake so you don’t get the old “oh sweetie is everything ok?” from your well meaning but misguided coworkers. Who knows maybe they’re being passive aggressive but I like to pretend they mean well, either way 😉
