As much as you love winters; coming out of your warm, cosy blanket, getting dressed, putting on some make up and stepping out of the house is most certainly not the kind of things which you love about this season.
So all the lazy girls out there who hate going through the beauty regime during winter mornings, no need to worry because we have got you covered. Let’s take a look at our smart and easy beauty hacks to tackle the winter season.
1. Cold water is your best buddy
We know this sounds tough, but splashing cold water on your face right after you wake up is the best beauty regime for your skin. Not only will it shake you and wake you up, but it’ll also help tighten and close your open skin pores. It is also said that cold water prevents your face from dehydrating and thus slows down the aging process.
2. Mankind’s biggest blessing – dry shampoo
Bad hair days can practically spoil your entire day. For days like this when you don’t have the time to enjoy a long, hot bath; opt for dry shampoo. Not only will it make your hair look better but will also control your hair from turning greasy, frizzy or oily.
3. Style your hair the previous night
If you have to attend some big meeting and you want to look your absolute best, you can wash and stylise your hair the previous night. Wash your hair, give it ample time to dry off and then style it the way you want it to look the next morning. So that the next day when you get up, a simple and quick brushing of hair would be enough.
4. Red lipstick is your bae
When you don’t have the time to spare deciding between your various shades of lipsticks, just close your eyes and go for the red one. There is no look, outfit, day or season where red colour does not blend in. In fact, if there is one thing you must carry with you in your purse at all times, it has to be that life-saving red lipstick.
5. Emergency make up kit is your lover boy
For the days when you are really running short on time, keep an emergency make up kit ready with just the minimalist things you can do and walk out. While some would prefer to have a kohl, concealer and lipstick in their e-kit, for some just eye make up accessories would be sufficient. So, think about the absolute make up accessories you need to have/apply before stepping out and keep it handy for times like these.
6. Take care of your skin a night before
Cleansing, moisturising, prepping your face to apply base might take longer than expected in the morning, hence, give your skin the time and attention it needs a night before. Shift your morning face care regime to night and you’ll easily be able to save a lot of time in the morning. Scrub, apply face-packs, use serums or night creams to keep your skin healthy and glowing the next morning.
7. Quick tip to fix your eye make up
It is no secret that eye make up is one of the trickiest aspects of make up. Thus to save time in the morning, keep everything you need to put that eyeliner perfectly, ready. Keep a hard object handy to help sharpen the edges of the eye make up like post-its, cards etc. You can also buy a concealer to quickly hide the uneven, splashed edges of the make up.
