Even when time is limited, we prioritize beginning with a fresh, clean face. It's also crucial to moisturize and prime your skin. Begin by moisturizing to establish a flawless canvas for your makeup.

Then, apply a primer to ensure your makeup stays intact throughout the day. Even if makeup isn't your daily go-to, this tip will give your skin that fresh, morning glow. Because nothing says boss like a radiant complexion.

How is your skincare routine going? We have some fast and simple tips to help you stay on top of your skincare game. Check out our posts "Glow Hard or Glow Home: Our Favorite Spring Skincare Picks for 2023 as well as "Skincare's Order of Operation" for more tips on skincare.

#2 Incorporate a Tinted Moisturizer or BB Cream into Your Routine

Simplicity doesn't mean boring. For a balanced skin tone and light coverage for imperfections, consider using tinted moisturizers or BB creams instead of heavy foundation. They offer a more natural and lightweight option.

Tinted moisturizers and BB creams can also provide moisture to your skin while offering a protective layer, with some even containing SPF for sun protection.

Swiftly apply a small amount of product to your face and voilà... your skin will appear more radiant throughout the day. Also, applying a touch of concealer under your eyes can help brighten them up and reduce the appearance of fatigue.

When it comes to foundations, are you Team Liquid or Team Powder? Dive into our blog post "Makeup Versus Presents: Liquid vs Powder Foundations" to explore the intriguing pros and cons of each option.

#3 Fill in those Brows

The saying is true! Eyebrows are the unsung heroes of our faces! We make it our daily mission to keep them looking sharp. A trusty brow gel is our sidekick, ensuring our brows stay on point all day.

Next, we touch up any sparse areas with our favorite brow pencil, wax, or powder. When pressed for time, your brows might not always be flawlessly sculpted, but they will have a nice shape and be filled in for a polished appearance. If you're looking for more advice on achieving your ideal eyebrow shape, check out our blog post "Eyebrows: Let's Talk About Them."

#4 Mascara is the key

Let's be honest, applying lash strips is not a priority when we're in a hurry in the morning. Lash extensions come to the rescue as they save time. You wake up and your lashes are already perfect. Nevertheless, the cost of getting lash extensions installed and maintaining them can add up.

Thankfully, mascara can save our lashes here, adding the oomph and drama they need to make our eyes stand out. For a daytime look that isn't too dramatic, we usually apply about two coats when we are in a bit of a rush. To complement your mascara, you can also add a little liner around your eyes.

We could chat about lashes until the cows come home, which is exactly why you need to peep this post:"LASH OUT AGAIN: 3 ways to get bold/full lashes".  It's a deep dive into all the secrets to make those lashes pop!

#5 Just Add Gloss

For a daytime look with light makeup, you can opt for a bold color or go for a natural gloss. A gloss is a perfect complement to any daytime look, offering a cute and convenient option for quick touch-ups.

If you are tempted to go with a bold color for your daytime look, consider shades like coral, peach, or light pink. These colors can add a pop of brightness to your overall appearance without being too overpowering.
