Five Time Saving Beauty Products

Five time saving beauty products

Time is something that I'm always lacking, and if I can find a multi-tasking beauty product, or one that makes my life easier I'm all over it. We're going to France early tomorrow morning for four days with just cabin luggage, so I've been trying to downsize my life into the smallest collection of products possible. So now is definitely the time to crack out those time saving beauty products.

My new base obsession as you'll know by now is the L'Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation. This is so easy to use thanks to the cushion inside the little tub, and I can apply this in a matter of seconds, just by gently tapping it across my complexion. It's fairly compact, and as the foundation is held in the cushion it's not at all messy and perfect for travel. I think I need to pick up the second shade in the range in the hope I get a little bit of a tan.

Highlight and I are great friends, especially Becca highlighters. The colour pay off is somewhat magical! New to the Jaclyn Hill Champagne collection is the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Slimlight in Champagne Pop. It's the gorgeous gold highlight that we all love in a stick formula. It's not as pigmented as the powder, but its so quick and easy to apply. It's particularly great for applying to the corners of the eye, nose, brow bone and cupids bow, but I've been going to town and using this all over. As it's in a little pen it's so handy and it lives in my bag. I might have to invest in the other two colours that this comes in, Pearl and Topaz.

To really save on time in the morning, tinting brows and lashes is the way to go. I've used the Colorsport 30 Day Brow Tint in Dark Brown*  few times before, and it's a super easy way to disguise any sparse areas (or if you've been a bit tweezer happy!). This is brilliant as it means I can get away with just enhancing the shape of by brow and not needing to spend ages on them of a morning. In the heat this is a life saver, as quite frankly I don't want my brows melting off! Colour-wise, Dark Brown is a good match for me and it's not faded too much since I applied it earlier in the week.

For my eyelashes, the Colorsport 30 Day Mascara in Black* means that I can forget about mascara if I want and go au natural. When I'm on holiday I find the heat, contact lenses and getting a bit hot can irritate my eyes, so the less I need to wear makeup around my eyes, the better. Application is pretty easy, but obviously as it's so close to your eyes a steady hand and taking your time is key. It's a two step process where you simply apply a few coats of the colour solutions to your eyelashes, leaving it on for a minute to develop before doing the same with the colour gel before rinsing it all off. The kit comes with a little pad of papers that you stick under your eye to protect the skin, and it's pretty fool proof. I applied the 30 day mascara twice to give an even blacker colour pay off which I was happy with. My lashes are quite dark anyway, so the result on me is never going to be dramatic, but if you have fair hair then tinting is a must. My lashes are darker and give the illusion of being fuller too.

I do have unruly long eyebrow hairs though so I always have a spoolie on me to keep them in check. I recently started using the Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow Definer, which has a spoolie on one end and a angled flat tip on the other. This makes combing through my brows and slightly outlining the arch super easy. As I've tinted my brows I don't really need to do much to them, but sharpening up the edges and tidying the line underneath makes all the difference. The Brow Definer can create really fine hair like strokes as well as filling in super quickly when turned on it's side, so it couldn't be easier to use. It literally takes about 30 seconds to do each brow; if that isn't time saving at it's best I don't know what is.
