Last Saturday I had the privilege of speaking at the Simply Stylist Session at The Grove to discuss quick beauty tips to get you out the door without sacrificing style. I’ve learned that the key to perfecting on-the-go beauty is to minimize the amount of time you’re wasting doing other things. Here are two 15-minute beauty looks that are lifesavers for on-the-go women in need of a quick and easy look: Here are some of the essential items you will need!
MAKEUP: Embracing the Dew
Start with a fresh face
BB cream with beauty blender. It’s got the right amount of coverage, moisture and SPF.
Honest Beauty Cream blush.
MAC Mineralize Illuminator: Apply just above your cheek bone. You want to bring out the dew in all the right places.
Sugar Fresh Petal Lip. It gives you a hint of color as well as moisture.
Apply MAC individual lashes just at the outer corner of your eyes. 3 or 4 lashes on each side.
HAIR: Kinky Beach Hair
Prep clean hair: Apply small amount of styling mousse to dry hair try and avoid the roots. If your hair is already dirty and has some styling product in it, fantastic! You can skip this step.
What you will need is 2 thick hair bands.
Blow dry for 2 min on high heat and allow to sit for 10 min. You can get dressed or start packing your things. If you started with your hair first you can always set hair while you put on your makeup.
Gently remove the hair bands. The effect you get are kinky waves! Hit with hair spray so you keep the kinks all day. Now that your hair and makeup is complete, add a spritz of Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant and you’re good to go – it goes on instantly dry.
