It is quite nice to use beauty products and face creams that smell nice and make our skin bright and hydrated. These products help us feel more beautiful while giving us more self-esteem. Although, it is not nice nor fun to cut on beauty sleep to invest in a long morning beauty routine. Thankfully, certain beauty hacks can help us save times and make our lives much easier.

Sleeping with your makeup on can cause blemishes and infections. By keeping some makeup remover wipes close to your bed, you don’t risk skipping this extremely important hygienic step even if you are extremely exhausted.

3. Use a blowdryer to make your creams, serums, toners and self-tanners dry faster

Certain products like hydrating creams and self-tanners have to dry completely before you can go on to the next step of your morning routine. A hair dryer can really help accelerate this process.

4. Add a bit of colour to your face with some lipstick

Apply lipstick to your cheeks, your eyebrow arch and on your lips then blend it in with your fingers to get a nice subtle glow. It is a quick and simple way to add a little bit of colour to your face.

5. Conquer contouring

To show off your facial features, rapidly trace a “3” with a concealer that is 2 times too light for your undereye. Start to draw the line from the top of your forehead, the middle line right above your cheekbone and the third line right before your jaw.

Then, draw a reverse “3” (so an “E” shape) with a concealer that is twice as dark as your foundation. Start the line near your temple, place the second line right under your cheekbone and the third line under your jaw. Then, blend everything in to get a perfect contour.

6. Create a cat eye without any blunders
