10 Ways to Simplify Your Makeup Routine


There are special occasions when you want to pull out all the stops – weddings (especially your own!), New Year’s Eve bashes or even an important meeting at the office. However, for your day-to-day routine, you simply don’t have time to go through the entire makeup, hairstyle and grooming routine. Fortunately, there are strategies that you can employ that allow you to look good every day and still get on with your day.

1. Strip Down to the Essentials

If you have brushes and bottles and pads and tubes and wands spread across your dressing table or bathroom counter, it’s no wonder you stumble over your beauty routine. Cut the clutter and you will almost inevitably find that you need less time to get ready. No one is telling you to sacrifice essentials, but if you’re not using it on a regular basis, toss it – or at least stow it out of the way.
