Load up on mascara and fill in your brows using a brow pencil, making strokes in the direction of your hair growth (be careful not to go overboard on your brows). This will take the attention away from tired or dull skin and onto your eyes, making you look bright and awake!

 2. Get A Professional Up Do In Minutes!

If you’re opting for that sleek back up do that saves you a whole lot of time in the morning, tame those flyaways by rubbing a little lip gloss or hair spray between your palms. Run your palms gently over your scalp to get rid of that frizzed out look. Seriously, who would’ve known you could use lip gloss on your hair?

 3. Invest In A Double Duty Product!

Shimmer bricks and cream blushes are the perfect example of multi-tasking products. A Shimmer brick can double up as a blush, bronzer, eyeshadow, and highlighter. A cream blush can be used on your lips or cheeks. Remember to drop it in your bag for hourly touch-ups.

 4. Don’t Use Brushes!

But hey, if you decide that brushes are your thing, then here’s a great way to know your makeup brushes.
