10 Basic Makeup Tips for Busy Girls 10 Basic Makeup Tips for Busy Girls 10 Basic Makeup Tips for Busy Girls

When you’re constantly on the go, you may feel as if you don’t even have enough time for a face of basic makeup before you head out the door each day. But don’t assume looking good has to take a ton of time. It’s all about strategically using the right tips and tricks to help tie everything together—without making you late. Below, find ten basic makeup tips specifically for busy girls—from using the right foundation formula to getting the most out of multi-use skin care products. Your makeup routine is about to get a whole lot easier!

BASIC MAKEUP TIP #1: USE STICK FOUNDATION

If you only have time for one step in your morning face makeup routine, let it be foundation. On busy days, we happen to be fans of stick foundation, since it’s easy to apply and blend. You can use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Foundation Shaping Sticks to contour and perfect your complexion in a few quick swipes.

BASIC MAKEUP TIP #2: AND A MAKEUP BLENDER

It’s not just about the foundation you wear; it’s about how you apply it, too. Instead of using your fingers to blend your cream foundation, concealer, or contour products, grab a makeup blender for a more seamless finish! The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender has a pointed tip on one end and a rounded edge on the other. To use, apply a few swipes of foundation onto your face, then bounce your blender all over with the rounded edge until you’ve reached your desired level of coverage.

Editor’s note: If you add a makeup sponge to your beauty routine, learning how to clean it correctly is a must! Use a gentle soap and water to rinse your makeup blenders, then squeeze out the excess water and store them in a cool, dry place.

BASIC MAKEUP TIP #3: SWIPE ON SOME LIPSTICK

Need a quick transformation? We happen to be of the opinion that a pretty shade of lipstick can instantly perk up your face. So, if you’re running out the door, try to spare a few seconds to apply some color! As for what exactly to coat your pout with, the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick comes in 20 highly pigmented matte shades that have a long-lasting formula—making it the perfect option for your busy, no-time-to-reapply routine!

BASIC MAKEUP TIP #4: USE MICELLAR WATER

OK, so this is a skin care product, but hear us out! If you make a makeup mishap when rushing to apply your routine, a bit of micellar water on a cotton swab can save the day without forcing you to start from square one. Micellar water is a gentle, no-rinse cleansing option that you can use to remove your makeup. So, stock your vanity with the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Waterproof - All Skin Types.

BASIC MAKEUP TIP #5: WEAR WATERPROOF CONCEALER

Wearing waterproof concealer is another essential for busy girls. Whether you use it along with foundation to contour or wear it alone to disguise dark circles is up to you! The waterproof formula will allow your concealer to stay put throughout the day, meaning you won’t have to find time in your busy schedule for touch-ups. Try using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer Waterproof, Full Coverage, which has a full-coverage, matte, and waterproof formula.

BASIC MAKEUP TIP #6: KEEP A FACE MIST ON-HAND

A face mist can instantly add a dewy glow to your complexion, refreshing your makeup look in practically no time at all. Not to mention it’ll help your makeup look last longer. Basically, this is a must for any busy girl. Spritz the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Shake & Glow Dew Mist onto your face throughout the day to revive your complexion and keep your glow going.

BASIC MAKEUP TIP #7: STICK TO STICK FORMULAS

Makeup products that come in stick form, i.e., blush sticks and highlighter sticks, will help you cut down on the time it takes to create your makeup look. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Blush Shaping Sticks to add some color to your complexion and the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Highlighter Shaping Sticks to get your glow on, all while speeding up your routine.

BASIC MAKEUP TIP #8: BRUSH UP YOUR BROWS

Groomed brows don’t have to take a ton of time. If you’re in a rush, simply use a spoolie to brush and shape your eyebrows. You’d be surprised what a difference this can make!

BASIC MAKEUP TIP #9: USE LIQUID EYE SHADOW

When it comes to eye shadow, there’s usually just not enough time when you’re in a rush. That being said, liquid eye shadow can change all that. Rather than whipping out your powder formulas and eye shadow brushes, swipe a color of your choice onto your lids, then blend with your finger. Easy, right?

BASIC MAKEUP TIP #10: SWIPE ON CLEAR MASCARA

Mascara can make all the difference in your beauty look, but it can also take time to apply without ending up with brown or black specks on your lids and under-eyes. Give your lashes a boost without the fear of spoiling your look by applying a coat of clear mascara.
