You’re having that dreaded moment: You are running late, your hair is a mess, you had two hours of sleep, and, to top it off, you can’t find your makeup bag anywhere. From your roommate hogging the bathroom, to not being able to find your makeup products, we have all have those rushed moments when we cannot seem to find those essential products needed to make us presentable. There’s no need to panic. Here are a few tips and tricks to ease the moment.
First, let’s deal with those puffy and tired eyes. Can’t find your perfect concealer? Wake up tired eyes and reduce any redness by using anti-inflammatory eye drops. Then, brew up your favorite green or black tea, and use the tea bags as an eye compress. Green and Black tea have anti-irritant properties and will help reduce puffiness. Be sure to let the tea bags cool before you using them.
Keeping the eye drops handy, use the eye drops on any blemishes you have on your face. The anti-inflammatory properties will reduce the size and redness of blemishes.
Without makeup handy, it is important to focus on the dominant features of the face. If your brows are particularly unruly, use a lip moisturizer or balm. Squeeze a small amount of the product onto your finger and then evenly distribute throughout your brows for desired shape.
If your hair is greasy and you don’t have any dry shampoo, baby powder is a great alternative. Make sure you thoroughly brush the powder through your roots, so you don’t end up having white spots. If you don’t have any anti-frizz hair-product, simply reach into your laundry bag and take out some dryer sheets and run the sheet through your hair from the roots to the ends. Another good tip for taming flyaways on the go is using hand lotion. Squeeze a small amount of hand lotion on to your hands and rub your palms together. Lightly pat down frizz and flyaways with your palms.
These quick beauty tricks will make those frustrating product-less moments less stressful. Remember: the key is to be creative and just go with the flow. Everyday items could just save you in a beauty disaster.
