Summer makeup routines and school makeup routines can be completely different. One of the reason being is the time crunch in the morning. During the summer you can take your sweet time getting ready for a night out with the girls. In comparison to the precious 30 minutes of rolling out of bed and getting ready to run to classes, you got to make every minute count. In today’s blog post, we will discuss some back to school beauty tips and makeup ideas that can help speed up your morning routine but still look A+. 

A soft natural rosy makeup is perfect for school, you won’t be overdoing it but at the same time, you will still look super cute! Try swapping your foundation for a BB or CC cream instead. If you are semi-satisfied with your skin without any products, using just BB cream will help even out your skin tone and correct blemishes in the long run. Since most BB cream already has a light tint, sometimes just the BB cream suffice. This will save you not only time but also save your foundation for days where you are in need of a fuller-coverage. 

A bit of contour (bronzer, highlighter, blush) will add a bit of structure and color to the face. If you aren’t already using a palette, it’s time to make the switch! Instead of flipping open three different products, finding the right palette for you can help save some time. This 6 color palette covers all the essential needs for contouring, shading, blush, and concealing! This is also a matte palette, giving your makeup a natural, fresh glow. If you are looking for more a pink shade to add on, consider matching your blush with your eyeshadow. A light dust on the apples of your cheeks and blend it outward will give a healthy looking glow. 

Investing in a few multi-purpose brushes can save you some time during your face routine as well. You won’t find a brush that can do it all, but instead of picking up all then of your brushes, limit yourself to 3-4 that will get your routine done. To begin, know which brush does what and then you will be able to identify which are the essential needs for your routine. Try limiting to 1-2 brushes for the eyes and 2 brushes for the face. 

One way of saving those precious morning minutes is knowing where everything is so you don’t have to dig half a meter dip to find your favorite mascara. Organizers such as a jar or a drawer may seem ideal but once you start filling it up, it actually becomes quite a cluster. We highly recommend trying a silicone cosmetic holder, they have different size holes so this way it can accommodate a variety of brushes, lipstick, mascara and other beauty products. It uses the elasticity to hold the products up. Try organizing the products you use first from left to right, it will definitely help save you time in the morning because you will always know where the product you are looking for is!
