summer is fast approaching, + with warmer temperatures comes the need for a new makeup routine. i'm not amazing at makeup + i've never spent more that 10 minutes putting on products in my life! time [+ laziness because let's be honest] is my biggest concern when it come to beauty routines. my mornings are always so busy, + makeup seems to get pushed to the back-burner if i'm running out the door. on a mission to change that, i've decided to up my beauty game with vanity planet + give you some tips to do the same!
TIP #1 - CLEAR OUT OLD OR BROKEN PRODUCTS
get those crumbed guys out of there! all they do is take up space in you bag + make things dirty! you're left spending time digging around in search of the products you actually use! a lot of makeup stores or brands will take back their used containers + give you a discount on your next purchase also!
TIP #2 - KEEP YOUR MAKEUP BAG ORGANIZED
this tip kind of goes in tandem with #1, but it's still important! i like to organize by category [i.e. lip colors, eye products, everyday basics, etc] + secure everything together with rubberbands or hairties. it's like an added bonus, because when you're traveling, you've got extra elastics on hand! it also just helps to keep everything neat. #OCDFTW
TIP #3 - INVEST IN SOME NEW MAKEUP BRUSHES
as i mentioned before, i'm not one to put alot of my time into makeup. i'm also not one to splurge on makeup supplies at all. but, i have discovered the necessity of a set of high-quality makeup brushes! mine are from vanity planet + i'm in love! the bristles are so soft + durable --- i definitely recommend them! by having this high-end brushes, you save yourself from having to fix any imperfections that would have resulted from low-quality brushes, like bristles left behind on your face! check out the VP site for more information on their brush sets + their other products!
TIP #4 - IF ALL ELSE FAILS, THROW ON SOME LIPSTICK
it's true. people know me for my love of lip colors! [if you don't believe me, read my FAQ!] if you find that you're running EXTRA late, or that the previous tips have failed you [sorry :( ] throw on some lipstick + SLAY. THE. GAME. works 100% of the time, every time.
