Curling lashes gives eyes the appearance of being wider, brighter and more awake. A trick of mine is to curl lashes AFTER mascara because it will actually hold the curl longer and better! A lot of women have it engrained in them that if they curl after mascara application their lashes will fall out... but that won't happen if your mascara is dry first. Just gently squeeze and pulse at the base of the lashes, that's all you need. Shu Uemura eyelash curlers are the best.
Cream Shadow can be your best friend when you're in a time crunch: it makes it easy to do a quick application without any problems with fallout that tends to happen with eyeshadow. Smudge with your fingers or a brush, a cream shadow is super blendable and customizable to the intensity you want to achieve as you layer. NARS Pearl Beach is a gorgeous daytime color.
A highlighting concealer pen is a great way to brighten up your complexion because it illuminates and conceals. Portable and easy to use under the eyes, down the bridge of the nose, and the high points of the cheekbones for a mid day pick me up. Try Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch.
A strong lip statement in coral or fuchsia can brighten up your look If you have very little time in the morning. Keep the rest of your makeup minimal and you'll be right on trend for Spring and Summer! Maybelline 24 hour color in Endless Ruby is gorgeous, glossy and lasts all day.
Skip the two part process of using liquid foundation and powder with a powder foundation. A product like this fuses the versatility of both in one quick and easy step. Most formulations are equally beneficial to the skin fighting free radicals and boast a high SPF like Physicians Formula, which has an SPF of 50.
