We have all had those days when we just do not have the time to go through our preening ritual in the morning. Here are a few the important things that you can do, that will give you an instant face lift!
Start the night before
Apply a dry shampoo to your hair the night before. When you move around while you are sleeping, the product gets worked into your hair and you wake up with gorgeous volume!
Always do your eyebrows
Eyebrows are the pillars to your face. Brush your eyebrows outwards and upwards with a spoolie (you can even use an old, clean mascara wand). Use a brow product to fill in the gaps. Good eyebrows instantly frame the face, giving you a fresh look.
Subtly define and lift the arch slightly
Brows look best when you follow the natural shape. But you can subtly fill the arch and extend it slightly above your natural brow, to give yourself a face lift. Be careful not to over extend the arch, as that may make your brows look un-natural.
Apply concealer above and below your brows
Apply concealer all around your filled-in brows. Blend the concealer with your fingertips. This gives shape and definition to the brows, and gives highlight in all the right places. It also gives you a rested and awake look.
Apply blush to contour
You do not always need a bronzer or a contour product to define your cheek bones. Just a sweep of colour at the right spot will do the trick! Forget the age-old practise of applying blush on the apples of your cheeks. Look into the mirror and pick the highest point of your cheek bones. This will usually be just beneath the point where your eyebrows end. Apply your blush there and blend upwards and outwards towards your temple. This adds instant lift to your face!
