5 Tips To Help You Look Your Best This Busy Holiday Season
Oh the magic of the holiday season - gift giving, beautiful decoration, good food, fun music...OR, for some of us, amidst this magic, there is a lot of busyness. Work, an increase of activities, a Christmas concert one day, a work party another day, Thanksgiving to plan, shopping to attend to, and THE LIST GOES ON. It’s a miracle we make it through the magic of the season.
And amongst all this we have to look put together too? Does it ever feel impossible? Fortunately, we’ve got you covered.
Take Advantage of Quick and Effective Products
During the holiday season, most of us don’t have all day to get ready. Instead we need products that are quick and effective–they don't take a lot of time to apply AND they look good on. If you only have a minute to get ready, you need to use this time wisely. That's when a product like our QUIKK Contour is your best friend.
Just like with our FLEKK eyeshadow palettes, QUIKK Contour palettes and brushes are designed to help you shape your face to perfection in 3 simple steps and get you out the door. FAST. Here's how to perfectly contour your face in under 60 seconds...
- Shade and contour: Buff the contour shade (#1) along your cheekbones, under your chin and along the top of your forehead.
- Apply blush (#2) to the apples of your cheeks. For the easiest application, smile to bring out the apples of your cheek and blend the color back towards your ears.
- Highlight. Finish with the cheekbones. Using the #3 shade in the palette, swipe the highlighter along the top of your cheekbones.
It's that easy! I'm not kidding when I say you can shape your face like the pros in 60 seconds or less.
Store Makeup In Your Purse Or Car
Because time is limited during the holidays, it’s a good idea to store extra makeup in your car or purse. This way you can access it quickly when you have a few minutes to get ready and you’re not home. Maybe you’re in the school pickup line, or perhaps you arrived a few minutes early somewhere. This will help you take advantage of a few extra minutes.
Use Long-Wearing Products
It’s less likely that you will have time for touchup during the busy days of the holiday season. This is why we recommend long-wearing products that stay in place and don't need to be reapplied constantly. We designed our Lipstikk to stain your lips with a natural flush so that you don’t have to worry if you can’t reapply right away. Our new mascara also lasts all day without flaking or smudging. When you use these types of products, you can focus on your day and not your makeup.
Choose Products that Best Enhance Your Features
When you're busy and don't have time for your full makeup routine, choose just one or two products that best accentuate your favorite features. If a lip color makes the biggest difference and make you feel the most put together, make sure to apply lipstick so you feel your best. If a mascara makes more of an impact, then that is the one product you prioritize.
Make Time For Makeup Removal
Finally, even though the days are long, make sure you still remove your makeup before you go to bed. Even the gentlest makeup can cause extensive damage to your skin during the night, dulling your skin and even prematurely ageing the face. And besides, what better way to finish off a hectic day than taking a couple of minutes for some self-care.
Use your favorite face cleanser, or if you need a quick makeup removal option (without any harsh soaps or makeup removers), try our brand new Makeup Remover Cloth. This ultra-soft, double-sided makeup cloth gently removed even the most stubborn makeup. Pro Tip: flip the cloth over to lightly exfoliate.
I love the colors, the brushes and the easy steps. Takes 5 minutes to do my makeup every day! I bought a set for my daughter, too.
