With sun kissed skin fading into the rear view mirror, it’s time to get in the swing of a new beauty routine. And because there is never enough time in a day, it is critical to plan ahead. Here are 5 tips that will help you rock your back to school beauty routine:
Out with the Old
It is extremely important to take care of your makeup just like you’d take care of your skin. Think of the bad bacteria that can build up on your favorite mascara wand or lipstick, and then imagine putting that directly onto your clean skin –ewww. Keep in mind how long your opened products last and toss them before they go bad:
- Mascara 2-3 months
- Foundation 6-12 months
- Eye Shadow 3 months
- Lipstick 12 months
Prep in the PM
Get your morning off on the right foot, and prepare the night before. Take a shower and blow dry your hair at night. This will save you time in the a.m. If you’re afraid of greasy hair- two words: dry shampoo.
Be Quick About It
Whether you’re running out the door to class or attending a back-to-school parent/teacher conferences, you need a quick makeup routine. In 7 minutes or less, you could be out of bed and on your way, looking as fabulous as ever.
Maximize Your Time
When time is of the essence, you have to prioritize. You should clean your face every night to remove the day’s makeup and dirt, so when morning comes, there’s no need for a full-out scrub. Rinse with warm water and prep your skin for your moisturizer. A quick swipe of bronzer, twirl of mascara and stroke of lip gloss will enhance your natural look and get you out of the door fast.
