We at Vasanti are all about being comfortable in our skin and loving our colour. But let’s admit, there are days when we don’t get enough sleep, despite hitting the snooze button for umpteen times. At times like this, when there is a lot to be done, as quickly as possible, putting the best face forward is a race against time. Here is a quick how-to on putting on a face and getting out of the door in five minutes.
Prep work first, always cleanse off make up at night and moisturize your skin. No excuses. In the morning, wash you face and then splash it with cold water. It works wonders to wake you up, freshens up the skin and tightens it as well. Let's start the stopwatch now.
1. Protect & Perfect
Put on some sunscreen, followed by a concealer that packs in pigment without getting cakey. We like the two-in-one functionality of Liquid Cover Up Oil-free Foundation and Concealer. It is really handy when it comes to spot concealing and under the eyes to hide away dark circles. Mix it with your favourite moisturizer and you have your own tinted moisturizer for all over the face coverage.
For getting a quick glow on the face, Flash Effect Loose Powder Radiance in your shade works wonders. With turmeric, silica and green tea as key ingredients, it will keep you shine free yet radiant all day long.
Nothing beats signs of fatigue like a good highlighter to bring your best features forward. Our pick for the task is always Instant Pick Me Up Colour Correcting Illuminator, it is easy to use and does not take much of your time. Brush on some glow on your cheekbones, bridge of the nose and cupid's bow, blend with fingers. Done.
3. Add Some Colour
For a quick and mistake-proof dash of colour, Vasanti's Lip and Cheek Colour Pod is a must-have in your handbag. One product that you can use both on your cheeks and lips, it keeps you from looking washed out. Win-win, we say!
4. Eyes Say It All
Never underestimate the importance mascara. Our Conditioning Long Lash Mascara does it all for you, it curls, lengthens and adds volume to your lashes, all in one clump free coat. Enough said!
Add some pop to your peepers with this rich and pigmented Kajal Extreme Intense Eye Pencil. You could apply it to your waterline for added depth and definition, or just smudge it along the lashline for a more subdued, lived-in look with its nifty smudge brush at the other end. Either way, it sets for a day long smudge-proof, water-proof line, so you need not worry about raccoon eyes.
5. Smile Away
Your smile is the best accessory. Now that you look awake, smile away – you are ready to take on the world.
And there you have it, the five minute face, from dazed to awake, just like that!
