These days, it seems like everyone is in a hurry, leaving less and less time to devote to a fresh and youthful appearance. Sure, we all wish we could roll out of bed and look our best, but more often than not we find ourselves scrambling for our go-to creams and cosmetics and applying a slap-dash coat on our way out the door – or even during the commute. If this scenario sounds like you every morning, it may help to pick up a few time-saving strategies.
Recently, Women's Health Magazine provided one suggestion that is a good rule of thumb for everyday makeup application – whether or not you're in a rush.
"When you have, like, 10 seconds to get ready, don't try to rush through your usual makeup routine—you'll probably look like a sloppy, morning-after version of yourself," the source states.
So, what exactly should you focus on? The magazine notes that you'll look perfectly put-together as long as your eyes and cheeks have been touched up. That means dabbing a bit of concealer over any dark circles, applying a hint of blush and letting those eyelashes work their magic with a touch of mascara. Most women consider their eyes to be their most captivating feature, so it's no surprise that attending to this area can take the focus away from any unsightly blemishes you don't have time to conceal.
Of course, if you're already self-conscious about creases around your eyes and along your brow, bringing attention to this area may be the last thing you want to do. In that event, consider scheduling a consultation with a Long Island plastic surgeon like Dr. James Marotta to find out how you can actively reverse the signs of aging and look your very best.
