Let's face it, sleep is precious. Waking up an hour, or more, to get ready before you have to leave the house is something that doesn't happen every single day. For those days when you've hit the snooze button one too many times, these are the products that I rely on to perfect the "I woke up like this" look.
First, I grab my concealer and foundation and use my fingers to dab the liquid near the spots I need it most. In order to save time, I skip the highlighter, blush and bronzer and combine my foundation with NARS illuminator around my cheeks. This product is not only perfect for the "dewy youthful look" but it adds a subtle flush to your face.
Then, instead of applying the concealer, foundation, and illuminator with their own brushes, I wet my Beauty Blender and buff and blend the liquids until everything is blended in. Lastly, I reach for my dry shampoo, part my hair to the right and left and spray and massage the dry shampoo into my scalp. I reach for my NARS velvet matte lip pencil when in "never say never" (a universally flattering shade in my opinion) color my lips and head out the door. This pencil is perfect for when I'm short on time because the application is full proof.
Five to ten minutes later, I'm out the door! What are your go-to products when you're running late?
