Once upon a time, there was a high school version of me and I would spend hours getting ready. I would crank up my music and spend an hour straightening my hair and somehow manage to spend an hour on my makeup too.
I didn’t necessarily just love getting ready – or maybe I just don’t remember and I did – but I did love to look nice.
Now, I’m married and that urge to look outstanding 24/7 isn’t the same. But, I do still like to look nice and impress people and impress my husband. However, I now value my time much more and don’t like to spend an hour or hours getting ready. I just can’t. I’m over it.
So, now, I resort to quick tricks like these. And, even though we all know a stylist actually gets the celebs ready, here are a few tricks they use – or at least their stylists use to get them ready in a matter of minutes:
- Try the middle part.
Remember, like the one you wore in elementary? Yeah, it is back now and it is a quick and easy way to give your hair a totally different look in a matter of seconds.
- Tuck the hair and add the sparkle.
If the middle part isn’t for you – try tucking your hair behind your ears and add some big, shiny, studded earrings to add a flair to your look.
- Fix those brows, girl.
I love this trick. It is a classic, simple look. If you don’t normally do your brows, just add some base and then fix your brows up. It gives you a natural, yet put together look.
- A little goes a long way.
Color eyeliner is back in style and just one little swipe of it and you pretty much look ready to go.
