Many women spend way too much time getting ready. Whether we’re getting ready for a date, a social event or even just for work, the time it takes to get beautiful can be pretty tedious. Luckily, there are some awesome beauty hacks that allow us ladies to cut back on getting-ready time and let us feel more confident on an everyday basis. When you can wake up looking beautiful (and you can, with these beauty hacks) you end up with more opportunities because you turn down less dates and go out more often since the hours getting ready no longer cause you to hesitate. You don’t need to spend hours getting ready and beautifying yourself anymore, and you can feel sexy leaving the house just as you are. Here are 5 tips for looking gorgeous without much time, energy or makeup:
- Eyelash extensions
Eyelash extensions are the miracle you needed to permanently have voluminous and sexy lashes. They’re applied by a trained technician, often using synthetic or mink eyelashes, and the technician glues long individual lashes onto your existing eyelashes. This takes about 2 hours but it’s well worth it. The result is several hours of your life reclaimed, because you’ll never have to apply eyeliner or mascara again, and your getting-ready time will be dramatically reduced. You’ll wake up with lush, long, thick and dark eyelashes which makes your eyes pop without makeup.
- Hair extensions
Hair extensions add volume, length and bounce to your hair so that you pretty much always have a good hair day. You won’t have to put much effort into styling your hair because that thickness you get from hair extensions means that even in a simple braid your hair looks glamourous. If you do get hair extensions, make sure to opt for virgin hair. Virgin hair is real, human hair that has been donated by someone who has never dyed their hair before. This means that the hair is chemically unprocessed and has never been colored, permed, bleached or chemically treated in any way. It’ll look natural and beautiful and save you a bunch of time when it comes to getting beautiful for any given event in your life.
- Sunless tanning
A sunless tan (also known as a spray tan or an airbrush tan) is a great method for achieving a bronzed glow on a semi-regular basis. Whenever you have an important date coming up or a social event, simply get a spray tan done the day before. The tanned glow you achieve makes your skin look flawless and lasts for up to 8 days. Even the skin on your face will look flawless, even and tanned so there will be little need for foundation or face makeup.
People say that if you want to cut down your getting ready time, you should get permanent makeup. Microblading is a means of tattooing in the form of semi-permanent eyebrows. A trained technician and eyebrow specialist will use a special microblading pen to draw on individual strokes one by one. This is why it looks like real hair, and real eyebrows. It takes around two hours to complete, but your brows can be completely reshaped, reconstructed, defined, darkened and customized to your individual preferences. Gone are the days of you penciling in your eyebrows, or shaping them yourself, or using eyebrow-darkening makeup to make your eyes pop. Eyebrows are one of your most important facial features, and luckily microblading lasts for 2 – 3 years before fading.
- Lip filler
Lip filler (also known as lip injections) is something that may seem expensive at first, but it lasts for nearly one year, so it’s actually well worth the money. A doctor or nurse will inject your lips with a very natural solution such as Juvederm, which looks and feels like natural lips. The lip filler will fill out and plump your lips to create that sexy and defined lip that you’d otherwise have created with lip liner and lipsticks. With full lips thanks to lip injections, you’ll find that you won’t need to wear lipstick as often and you’ll feel sexier and more confident.
