We all have those days when suddenly plans come up and we need to get ready in 10-15 minutes. You cannot just go out wearing no makeup or even worse, badly done makeup; right? In this post, I will share a few awesome urgent makeup ideas that you can use when you are in a hurry. These tips will take your makeup look flawless and won’t cause any last-moment disasters either.
Make a Moisturizing Foundation.
The moisturizing foundation is one of the best for urgent makeup ideas. You cannot go without a foundation and you cannot skip a moisturizer either. For urgent situations like this, it is always advisable to make your concoction of moisturizer and foundation. This has multiple benefits and comes in handy when you are in a hurry. It makes the face soft, adds some color, blurs away imperfections, and does not need a tool to blend. You can apply this first and then hide the stubborn scars with the touches of concealers.
Use a Compact Foundation
Compact foundations provide heavy coverage and work both as a foundation and a compact at the same time. Apply some concealer under the eyes and around the mouth first. Then dab the compact all over the face. MAC, Clinique, and Estee Lauder have come up with compact foundations. You can set this compact with a fixing spray or primer spray to get a non-powdery, even look.
Use Lipstick as Blush.
Lipsticks work very well to add some color to your cheeks. Take some on your fingers and dab it on the cheeks. The color will pop up on the cheeks and gets blended into the skin. It gives a from-within glow that looks pretty natural.
Use Lip Liner after Lipstick.
When you are in a hurry, you often make mistakes. Use a liner to give your lips a flawless look and to make things easy, use it after applying the lipstick. Apply the lipstick all over the lips leaving the extreme edges. Now, use a liner to line the edge. You can use a deeper pencil to create an ombre effect. This gives a defined look to the lips even in a very short time.
Use a Gloss.
If you do not have time for lipstick, go with a gloss. Lip glosses are applied easily and you do not have to worry about a perfect line. You can use it directly on your lips to save time. It makes the lips look fuller and soft.
Create Smokey Eye with Kajal.
If you love bold smoky eyes this is another trick that you will absolutely like. Start off by applying a brown pencil all over the lid. You can skip this if you are in too much of a hurry. Next, apply a kajal pencil or gel liner close to the upper lash line. Now blend it upwards and outwards. As the color will fade out, it will give a beautiful smoky effect.
Use Mascara on your Brows.
Filling in the mascara can be very time-consuming at times. You can gently brush your brows with your mascara spoiled after applying the mascara. It will brush the brows and fill in some color in the gaps making it look all-natural and full.
Fix Your Hair with Sprays.
When you are in a hurry, hair says are your best friend. Spray some dry shampoo on your hair to make it bouncy and fluffy. You can do any quick styling or keep it open. Now, set it in place using a good-quality hair-setting spray. This will keep the hair in place without putting in much effort.
