7 Time-Saving Makeup Tips For Women On The Go

We all know there are just some days when we have to get out the door in a hurry and we don’t have all morning for a long, extensive beauty routine. If you’re a woman on the go, keep it simple and try these 7 time saving makeup tips.

1.  Start With The Eyes 

Eyeshadow fall-out has the potential to mess up your makeup, so don’t let it. Start with your eyeshadow and you won’t waste any precious time clearing up the aftermath, especially if you’re dabbling with colourful pigments or glitter. (via escentual.com)

2. Stick with Neutral Tones 

If a bold lip isn’t really your thing and you can’t afford to think too long and hard about your color palette – just go with all neutral colors for your entire face, like tan, taupe, and peach. Chances are they’ll all go together. (via popsugar.com)

3. Choose a Tinted Moisturizer 

A tinted moisturizer is a saving grace when you’re short on time. Not only does it need little-to-no blending but it’ll give your skin a boost of hydration, which means you can skip moisturizer if you’re really in a rush. (via escentual.com)

4. Make Your Pout Pop 

If you’ve really pushed it or overslept, just reach for one product: red lipstick. Even if you wear nothing else and just a red pout, you’ll look miraculously put together and glamorous. Plus, you can put it on while you’re riding the elevator up to your office.. (via popsugar.com)

5. Think Pink!

A pop of pink on the apples of your cheek give you that instant face brightening you’re looking for to enhance your gorgeous complexion. (via shop.mymakeupbrushes.com)

6. Skip Liquid Liner

Nobody has time to clean up a messy line in the morning. Go for a pencil liner which will give you the flexibility to not need a perfect line. Smudge the line and you’re good to go — perfection. (via shop.mymakeupbrushes.com)

7. Say So Long to Mascara 

Who has time for mascara in the morning? Your daily beauty routine can become even more simplified by getting lash extensions. Whether you want a classic, natural look or lots of volume and fluff, lash extensions will not only save you time but many women often find that they don’t even need to wear as much makeup at all!

5 Things Lash Stylists Want Their Clients To Know

If you’re a lash extension veteran, then your lash stylist has most likely educated you on the best ways to care for your lashes, products you can/cannot use and all the other important ‘dos and dont’s’ that come with having lash extensions. But there are some other important things that lash stylists want YOU, their clients to know . . .

Be Upfront

Don’t be afraid to share any discomfort or concerns with your stylist during your service. They are there to not only make your lashes look fabulous, but they also want to make sure you have the best lash experience possible. If you have any discomfort or irritation during your service, tell your stylist so she can make you comfortable. Also be sure to reach out to your salon/stylist after your service, if by chance you experience an allergic reaction, redness or simply have a question you forgot to mention before you left. They are the experts after-all, so don’t hesitate to share any concerns during or after your service.

Don’t Expect The Same Results As Your Friends

Your stylist will always strive to give you the lash look you desire. However, if your friend has lash extensions with extreme, voluminous fullness and you want the same but your lashes don’t end up looking as full as hers, there’s a reason. Clients who already have a naturally full lash line will end up with an even more extreme, full lash line after having extensions applied. If your natural lash line isn’t as full, then your lash extensions may not have the same fullness as your friend’s lashes. The more natural lash hairs you have, the more extensions can be applied. So to sum it up, your stylist wants you to understand that they will work with the natural hairs YOU have and give you the best results possible, however your lash look and your bff’s lash look may not always look the same….and now you know why.

Keep Chatter to a Minimum

While it’s always fun to catch up with your fav, fabulous lash stylist, too much chatting can make her job more difficult. Why? For one, it’s always very important to be as still as possible during the application process and allow your stylist to focus on the precise technique she needs to master during your service. Second, this needs to be a relaxing experience for you. If you and your stylist chat the entire time, then you may not get to enjoy that amazing lash nap we all love. However, if it’s your stylist that’s doing most of the talking, remember to take headphones to keep the talking to minimum, or like we mentioned in #1, be upfront and kindly tell your stylist you’ve had a long day and that you’d prefer to just relax and not chat too much. She will gladly understand!

Don’t Leave It All Up To Your Stylist

If you don’t do your part and take care of your lashes, then your lash stylist can’t do her job to the fullest. If you don’t clean, comb and care for your lashes properly, then your stylist may not always be able to give you the results you want. They will try of course, but if they have to spend time cleaning and separating dirty lashes, then this means less time getting your lashes back to the look you love. If you have lost a great deal of lashes due to poor care or if you don’t keep up with your 2-3 week refill appointments, then your stylist may recommend a full, new set. So be good to yourself, your lashes and your stylist by taking proper care of your extensions and schedule regular refills. (Pssst . . . It’s now easier than ever to book your appointments with our new, convenient on-line booking system.)

Listen To Your Stylist

Remember that the stylists are the experts! They do this every day, for hours a day. Listen to them and any tips or feedback they may give you during your appointment. You make an investment in your lash extensions and your stylists knows it and wants to help you keep that investment looking full and fabulous!
