Top 5 Time-Saving Tips

As you may have noticed, I've been a little absent from the blogging world of late and that's because I'm juggling work/uni/travel plans/more work. Yeah, yeah, first world problems, I know! But it does mean that I've had to be a little more creative with my time and come up with new ways to save time and still look semi-decent. So here are my top time-saving beauty tips.

1. Get your brows tinted

Being both dark and bushy of brow, tinting wasn't really something I'd ever considered but after taking the plunge and getting them tinted, I am never going back! Even for someone like me with naturally dark, full brows, the difference is amazing. My brows look amazing even without any product and when I do go to fill them in, it takes about half the time. Win-win right? Lash tinting also falls into this category, especially if you have fine or very light lashes.

Head to the Benefit Brow Bar for all your brow-tinting needs.

2. Invest in some multi-tasters

The best way to save time when it comes to beauty is to invest in products that give you two (or more) ways to use them. Think cream blushes like the Balm's How Bout Them Apples Palette, that you can use as both a blush and a lip stain. This means that you'll save time because you're reaching for fewer products to get ready with. Another great idea is the Schick Intuition Razors that have a built-in soap so you don't have to mess about with shaving foam. You can just hop into the shower, shave and go!
3. BB Cream is a life saver

I am a BB cream convert and I will sing it's praises for all eternity! BB creams and tinted moisturisers are fabulous because you can apply them using just your fingers (hello to getting ready on the train), they provide good coverage, even out your skin tone and give you a gorgeous glow. They're quick and easy to use but still make you look like you've made an effort.

My current favourite BB creams are the Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream and the Too Faced Beauty Balm.

4. Dry shampoo, nuff said

Dry shampoo is God's gift to busy women who can't be bothered washing their hair as often as they probably should. My hair is blasted with enough dry shampoo to potentially suffocate an elephant but I can't get enough of it (and yes, I do realise I sound a lot like a junkie). I just love that my hair can go from bleaugh to moderately alright with just a sprite from my beloved dry shampoo. Another great tip is to apply your dry shampoo at night then brush it through in the morning for extra volume and a little more time saved.

5. Invest in a thermal water

I know it sounds a little crazy to be carrying around mini-bottle of thermal water in your handbag BUT aside from being able to potentially fool thieves into thinking you carry pepper spray, you'll also be able to refresh your makeup instantly. When your makeup starts to look cakey or your concealer starts to crease, a little spritz can save the day. Either spray directly onto your face before using a sponge or beauty blender to touch up OR spray a little directly onto a beauty blender and then wave goodbye to your creasey concealer.

My favourite refreshing spray of all time is the Body Shop's Vitamin E Mist.

I can't live without dry shampoo!!!! I think my favourite time saving tip would have to be to use a brown eyeshadow that's matte, to use for eyes, brows and contour! so easy!!

I literally use all of these tips and still struggle to get ready on time in the morning, haha. The batiste dry shampoo is honestly LIFE! I use it so much because my hair is so long it takes ages to wash/dry and also most of the time the roots may be slightly greasy but the rest is fine so I spray a little and I'm good to go!

Awesome post! xx
