Happy first Hump Day post from school! In case you haven’t heard, Coming Up Roses is in Back-to-College mode. Since I’m an RA for 26 wild n’ crazy (just kidding, they won’t be wild n’ crazy in MY hall…) frosh, these past two weeks have been jam packed with trainings and hall decorations and writing notes to my freshman year self.
Going back to school is so rough when you’re a kid. When it’s college…it can be rougher. Your late night bonfires and Netflix marathons are over, and you’re lucky if you have one totally free weekend to spare on binge-watching a new OITNB series (priorities, people).
But, I’m a fan of the –ism, “Life can be rough, but throw on some red lipstick and it’s a party.”
I just made that up. Catchy, right?
Really though, I think one of the easiest ways to feel better instantly (and get a quick brain break!) is by playing with some new makeup.
Time is of the essence in college, though, and going through a full beauty regimen everyday just isn’t possible.
But, do you have 3 minutes?
As I always seem to be running on the brink of lateness anymore (sorry, mom), I’ve mastered fast makeup.
And I timed myself to prove it.
2:39.65 later, I’m ready to go tackle this day.
The key? Stick to the essentials. Figure out what you need to cover, what you want to emphasize, and what will have lasting power. I got right to concealing my problem spots (i.e. T-Zone blemishes), making my eyes pop (since they’re my favorite feature), and adding a touch of moisturizing shine to my lips.
The clock is ticking…
And there you have it, ladies! Your makeup is done…time to pick out a killer outfit for a comfy and chic day.
How do you get ready when there’s seemingly no time to spare? What makeup products go on easy and FAST?
In other news, a lot of you have requested that I do a post on how to maximize your LinkedIn profile, and this series seems like just the perfect time to do it! Be sure to check back in on Friday (yup, FRIDAY!) to find out how you can get that “All-Star” rating on your LinkedIn and make genuine connections that lead to something more.
Adios, amigos! It’s been a fun 3 minutes.
