As girl bosses, a fast-paced lifestyle does not always leave room for a lengthy beauty routine, especially when we’re on the go. But just because we’re making a name for ourselves out there doesn’t mean our makeup can’t look flawless either. We have seven simple and easy beauty tips and tricks you can adapt to your on-the-go lifestyle effortlessly.

1. Remove makeup before bedtime

Going to bed without removing makeup is one of the worst things you can do to your skin. Why? If you don’t cleanse your face regularly, dead skin cells remain on the surface of your skin, clog your pores and cause breakouts. Also, going to bed without removing makeup can lead to a dull and lifeless complexion.

This bad habit also makes skin appear older, increases risk of infections and irritations, and causes that tired look you see in the mirror next morning. To look radiant or fresh and gorgeous at work, you would need to put extra effort into beauty routine. This requires more time, and it’s not practical in the long run.

Therefore, to look gorgeous when you’re on the go (and even when you’re not), you should always remove makeup before bed, clean your face properly, and apply a moisturizer. You’ll wake up feeling and look like a princess in the morning thanks to smooth skin and vibrant appearance.

2. Multi-purpose beauty and skin care products

To keep up with all sorts of demands at work, you have to be flexible and find a practical way to do everything within a specific deadline or until your business trip is over. Use those skills in your beauty routine too. Since you don’t alway have a lot of time to waste on applying a multitude of products, choose wisely and buy multi-purpose items.

Thanks to constant research and evolution of technology, science, beauty and skincare,  women have a wide selection of versatile products at their disposal. For example, you can use cream that will not only treat your face, but neck and chest wrinkle too. Neck and chest tend to be overlooked, but wrinkles and dull complexion affect them just like your face.

Another option is to buy cream that also contains SPF and shampoo that also works as a conditioner (2in1). Multi-purpose products make skincare routine easier and cut down on space–a great thing, especially if you’re traveling.

Look for makeup that several multiple uses such as mascara that lengthens and curls eyelashes, 3-in-1 foundation that primes, covers, and conceals, as well as lip and cheek duos.

3. Use a bold lipstick

You’re on a business trip and don’t have enough time to invest in beauty routine because your first meeting is in 30-45 minutes. Or maybe you have a hectic day at work planned, and you had to rush out of bed, dress and zip out to work. Regardless of the scenario, you can never go wrong with a bold lipstick.

When you’re short on time, just take a red lipstick (or a favorite color) and apply it on your lips. If you have a few extra minutes, use a bit of mascara to add fullness to your eyelashes. Now if you got a solid ten minutes, you apply eyeliner to tightline your upper lash to add fullness,  but this is optional. You’ll be surprised how a bold lipstick color will draw the attention to your lips, and make it look like you spent more than five minutes on your look.

4. Use tinted moisturizers

Forego foundation in favor of tinted moisturizers. Why? They are formulated to look like foundation (hence the name), but they moisturize and nourish your skin at the same time.

Tinted moisturizers are such a great way to decrease the appearance of skin hyperpigmentation (dark patches) without causing irritations or other unwanted reactions. Many tinted moisturizers also have SPF built in to help further protect the skin.

5. Use credit card for cat-eye effect

Creating cat-eye effect can be tricky, but not impossible. The easiest way to do it is to use a credit card (or plastic card) for a perfect angle. Why a credit card? It’s simple. You usually carry it with you in your wallet or purse.

How to do it? All you have to do is to place the edge of the card in line with the bottom lashes and angle the top toward the end of your eyebrow. Then, use your favorite eyeliner to draw a straight line for a perfect cat-eye, winged look.

We love using this method to master that  popular cat-eye look.

6. Matte lipstick isn’t always a good idea

Matte lipsticks seem like a great idea because they are generally long-lasting, but you may want to skip them on those on-the-go days.  Why? Well, matte lipsticks can have the tendency to dry out the lips and make them look chapped.

An good alternative is to use lip tints (or stains) instead. They add a hint of color to your lips without drying them out. You can also add your favorite lip gloss for luscious and glossy lips. The last thing you want is dry and cracked lips.

7. Consider getting eyebrows shaped

According to a study from the Frontiers in Psychology, eyebrows are the key to a youthful look. In fact, one of the best anti-aging tips that can be often overlooked is the impact shaped and groomed eyebrows has on our appearance.

But how does this help busy women who are on the go? If you are running low on time then you may not always have time to fill in the brows or get your eyebrows tattooed. So making sure we keep our brow well groomed is essential to a polished look. Of course, if you have a few extra minutes to spare in the morning by all means use a favorite eyebrow pencil to add a bit of fullness to the brows.

Just because you’re busy and constantly on the move, it doesn’t mean you have to axe your beauty regimen completely. We hope these beauty tips  will help you look flawless with minimum effort every day.
