Focus on the three E’s


If you’re in a serious rush (or you’ve hit the alarm's snooze button too many times), just focus on the three E’s — eyebrows, eyeliner, and eyelashes. Brush and fill in brows, line your eyes using eyeliner, and slowly wiggle a mascara wand through your lashes for definition. If you’ve got under-eye darkness, a quick touch of concealer may be necessary.


Perfect your pout


Lip colour is the easiest way to make your lips stand out and the options are limitless. Choose a natural shade or one with a pop of colour to compliment your outfit. Remember the lesser pigment there is in a lip colour, the easier it is to apply. With a natural shade, you can safely apply well even without looking at a mirror.
