In an ideal world, we’d have everything we need to create a fully intentional beauty look every day: time, all the right makeup and tools, perfect lighting ... more time. It's fun to dream, right?
Instead, we're always scrambling to look great on the go. To help you beat the clock, here are some products and techniques for when you’re in the car, on the bus, in your work bathroom or any of the many places you wind up powdering your nose in a pinch.
1. Trade Brushes for Fingers
We love brushes, but it’s time to get comfortable with a tool makeup artists have used for years. Use your fingers in almost all the steps below. Just remember to wipe them down with a cleansing wipe prior to touching your face and remember which finger is covered in dark eye color and which carries pink lipstick.
Pick a relatively neutral peach, pink or red that serves as both lip and cheek color. Blend it over lips with your finger, then rub the rest into the apples of cheeks. Voilà! Your blush now seamlessly works with your lips.
