<![CDATA[]]> Thu, 14 Apr 2016 07:01:16 +0000 hourly 1 <![CDATA[Tube mascara: more natural-looking than falsies]]> Thu, 12 Mar 2015 10:20:15 +0000 raveinfo If you weren't born with the sunglass-grazing lashes of, say, Kim Kardashian, you might think that false lashes or lash extensions are a no-brainer. After all, they give your lashes tons of volume and length.

If you want length and volume that will make your eyes look wider and more awake, tube mascaras from blinc might be a better option. The revolutionary formula adheres to your lashes and creates tiny acrylic tubes that build on your natural hair. The result? Long, luxurious eyelashes that won't threaten to glue your eyes shut. (Who wants that?)

With only a few sweeps of the tube mascara, you can get the look that false lashes can provide, without having to fiddle with glue and drying time. Plus, with lash primer applied beforehand, your lashes will be conditioned, so you won't have to worry about brittleness or breakage, which often occurs upon the removal of false lashes and lash extensions.

<![CDATA[Avoid bad beach makeup with tubing mascara]]> Wed, 11 Mar 2015 12:25:32 +0000 raveinfo When hitting the beach, spending the afternoon at a barbecue or relaxing poolside, it's important to find products that will be long-wearing, protect against the harmful rays of the sun and not look too overdone.

Glamour.com recently listed "Fussy-looking makeup at the beach" as one of the biggest beauty mistakes made by many women during the summer months.

The news source recommends wearing lighter makeup with a more natural look, like blendable blush stick, for a natural-looking glow that won't appear cakey or overdone.

But, for those who love the look or shade of their favorite powder blush, applying facial moisturizer underneath the product will help them achieve a warm look, the publication suggests.

And, though many women feel naked without a swipe of mascara or a dab of eyeliner, during a heat wave, a lot of eye makeup can appear overdone. Instead, apply an acrylic-based tubing mascara that won't smear or melt (no matter how sweltering your environs), and go easy on the eyeliner for a fresh-faced look.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19883622-ADNFCR

The singer-songwriter kept things simple by manicuring her lashes with a heated eyelash curler and using a touch of liquid eyeliner to give her lids an elegant finish, according to HollywoodLife.com.

Swift used her lip color and eye makeup as the focal points of her look, but made sure her face was a fabulous backdrop to start off. She used a bit of peach blush on her cheeks for a warming glow, and opted for a shade of pink lip gloss for some subdued contrast.

On her eyes, Swift used just a bit of taupe eyeshadow on her upper lids and filled the lower lash line with eyeliner. With a couple of coats of mascara, Swift's look was a delightfully simple process that anyone can pull off!

Before you apply your new shade of eyeshadow, prep your skin with blinc Eye Shadow Primer. Now you can avoid your cosmetics smudging, running or creasing throughout the day and reap the benefits of the product's moisturizing and anti-wrinkling properties.

The actress wore a dazzling white, black and gold formal dress, and used that neutral backdrop to sport a muted winged eyeliner look, according to HollywoodLife.com.

With a dramatic eye makeup look such as this, it's vital that you're wearing an ensemble that can match with the bold nature of the style. A mixture of neutrals and metallic shades in your attire can help to bring your cosmetics to the forefront.

The winged eyeliner look is really quite easy to pull off - you simply need to line your upper lash line and pull it into a wing when you reach your outer crease. Just be sure that the two lines don't connect and you can make them as long or as short and you'd like!

Crafting the perfect look is one thing, but keeping it brilliant with blinc Eyeliner may be the best choice. This handy product provides a water-resistant layer of color for your lids that won't smudge, run or crease throughout the day.

At a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the actress showed that even her pregnancy wasn't going to stop her from looking confident and fashionable in any situation, according to StyleBistro.com.

Alba used a dark plum eyeshadow that was blended with a bit of dark eyeliner to give her lids a dramatic look. Using a darker shade of purple on your eyes is always a good choice, since it can be harder to pair clothing with a lighter hue. To top off her look, Alba applied a generous amount of mascara to ensure that her lashes were voluminous and ready for her TV appearance.

Painting your lashes with regular mascara can be time-consuming and messy, so give blinc Mascara a try. This handy product will encase your lashes in tubes that will protect your makeup from flaking, running or smudging throughout the day. It's ideal for ladies with sensitive eyes or contact lens wearers, and can be removed at the end of the day with warm water and a little pressure.

Glamour.com has had its radar on some rather brilliant eye makeup looks that have been cropping up on the red carpet as of late (we're looking at you, Olivia Munn and Diane Kruger). The two leading ladies both experimented with gray and silver shadow looks (and even pairing gray on top with bronze on the bottom), with results looking fabulous all around.

If you're looking for a way to add some sophisticated interest to your eye makeup this summer - or perhaps even provide some much-needed balance to an outrageous outfit - consider the power of grays, browns, bronzes and creams.

Neutrals are notoriously easy to pull off, but even the simplest eye makeup looks can greatly benefit from a coat of blinc Eyeshadow Primer. The shadow base acts as a perfect primer for any eye makeup look and resists smearing and creasing throughout the day.

<![CDATA[Tips to save money on your makeup expenses]]> Thu, 10 Apr 2014 14:58:54 +0000 raveinfo As your makeup repertoire expands over time, there are certain products that have a longer lifespan than others and can become useless after time. While products like tube mascara and liquid eyeliner will probably stay effective for a long time, powder products, bronzer and eye shadow can start to wear out pretty quick. According to Shape.com, there are some handy tips to improve their shelf life and make sure that you can wear them effectively.

As tempting as it may be to go for that dynamic new eyeshadow shade, it may be best to go with a few versatile hues instead. You'd be surprised at the many makeup ensembles you can create by combining certain products, so go for a bunch of adaptable colors instead of trendy products.

Most importantly, you should keep your makeup in a climate controlled environment with adequate humidity. Some cosmetics can dry out faster than others, so be sure to use these first before others to ensure that you're not wasting your money in the long run.

Another tip is to head to a makeup store and ask for a few samples - if you're just trying something out, it's best to go for the free version!

<![CDATA[Finding the right eyeshadow hue to match your eye color ]]> Tue, 08 Apr 2014 15:09:42 +0000 raveinfo finding+the+right+eyeshadow+hue+to+match+your+eye+color_3356_800583839_0_0_7044521_300One of the most underrated aspects of eye makeup is the way that a certain hue can either work beautifully or detract from your eye color. The right eyeshadow can highlight the intensity of your eyes in ways that no other cosmetics can match.

Blue eyes are best served when combined with a bronze, gold or warm hues like coral or orange. Or if you're feeling adventurous, pink eyeshadow provides ravishing contrast to azure eyes.

Hazel and green eyes look best by being combined with muted shades like mauve, purple and magenta. You can also try out some brighter shades, but stick to those that are golden brown or rust to make your eyes the focal point. For the lucky ladies that have brown eyes, they are nearly an endless amount of combinations that can work with your irises, so mix and match to find the best complement.

The best eyeshadow will fall flat if your lashes aren't up to snuff, so try blinc Mascara. This product encases your lashes in tubes that protect your makeup from flaking or smudging throughout the day. At the end of the day, the mascara can come off easily with some warm water and a bit of pressure.

According to analysts at Allure.com, neon eyeliner will work just as well for everyday women as it does for the runway models that have been sporting the stuff as of late. The liner can be worn in a range of thicknesses and you can apply it to various parts of your eyes for different effects. The news source reports that this can often make for an "[updated] mod look" and a scintillating alternative to dark, smoky eyes.

For eyes that up the voltage level this spring, go wild in your selection of cobalt blue, lime green, barbie pink, or primary yellow eyeliner. For a relatively moderate daytime look, draw a thin line on just your top lid - you can go all the way around and thicken it up too once you're out on the town.

To finish the look, apply a few coats of blinc Mascara for stand-out lashes. Its water-resistant tubing formula will stay on your lashes without flaking or smudging, so your vibrant color will get all the attention.

If you have a pair of colorful earrings or a stack of bangle bracelets you've been dying to wear, pairing them with a similar shade of eye makeup can create a clean and uniform look for any occasion.

When pairing your cosmetics to match your accessories, a good rule of thumb is to wear a neutral outfit that won't detract from your style choices. The neutral backdrop will add more gravity to your color choices and allow them to shine through.

For chic summer style, use a mellow gold eyeliner or a soft eyeshadow around your lids and then pair it with teardrop earrings in a similar hue. This delightful mix of similar colors will have striking impact in a formal or casual ensemble.

Before you apply your new shade of eye makeup, be sure to prep your eyes with blinc Eye Shadow Primer. This handy product will stop your cosmetics from running, smudging or creasing throughout the day and can moisturize your skin after a week's use.

<![CDATA[The perfect makeup to enhance your minimalist ensemble]]> Fri, 04 Apr 2014 15:18:36 +0000 raveinfo Whether it's a reaction to the complicated styles of past years or an answer to the bright and bold prints of the summer, one of fall's biggest trends is minimalism. Women are forgoing intricate, patterned ensembles for neutral-colored outfits that boast little embellishment.

However, it can be tricky to determine what type of makeup pairs best with an otherwise pared-down look. Should you opt for no makeup at all or simply stick to a color palette similar to the hues in your outfit? Interestingly enough, the answer seems to be quite the opposite.

According to celebrity stylist Mary Alice Stephenson, women should use their makeup or nail polish to add a pop of color to the neutral tones of the minimalist look, StyleList.com reports. She added that a bold red or pink lip is a wonderful addition to a camel or gray-hued get-up.

When rocking bright lipstick, it is important to keep the rest of your makeup simple. Subtly define your eyes with black water-resistant mascara (though blondes and redheads may want to use brown mascara, as it will look more natural on lighter lashes) and a light dusting of nude shadow that boasts a slight shimmer.

Blue eye makeup is another way to give your lids an extra bit of color and it can combine beautifully with other shades. Try mixing it up with some pale green eyeshadow or a lighter shade of blue to create an enchanting blend that's ideal for any social occasion.

<![CDATA[Why use a Heated Lash Curler?]]> Fri, 28 Mar 2014 20:11:58 +0000 nicoleteriaca
  • Applying heat is the most effective way to curl lashes
  • Increases the appearance of lash length by extending lashes upward and away from the eye
  • Provides superior control over curl intensity
  • Will not pinch delicate eyelids
  • As simple as applying mascara

 

Look at the huge difference using a heated lash curler makes on the eyes below!

Before & After using blinc's Heated Lash Curler! Before & After using blinc's Heated Lash Curler!

 

How To!

 

1. Begin with clean, dry lashes

2. Turn the Heated Lash Curler on; once the heat indicator turns yellow place the lash curler against the base of your lashes and slowly comb through the lashes in an upward motion for top lashes and downward for bottom. To achieve a little extra curl place the curler gently against lashes for s few seconds and repeat throughout the length of the lashes

3. Once finished it is important to apply tubing mascara to the lashes as traditional paint mascaras tend to be heavy and may weigh down the curl. blinc mascara is a perfect paring as it forms tiny tubes around each perfectly curled lash thereby creating a cast that will hold the curl until you decide to remove your eye makeup!

 

If you haven't already, pick up blinc's heated lash curler and begin to experience a whole new set of lashes!

Osbourne told New York Magazine that slimming down wasn't easy - in her words, "it sucks!" - but it definitely helped to look good at the gym.

"I know people say, 'Don't wear makeup at the gym,' but I am that girl that wears makeup at the gym," she told the news source.

Before working out, she applies a touch of blush, foundation, and lip gloss. "If you don't like your reflection, you don't want to go back," she reasoned.

Gals who want to look their best at the gym should use makeup that will last, like blinc Mascara. The water-resistant formula won't run or smudge as you sweat, and the mascara still comes off gently when you're done thanks to its innovative tubing formula. The mascara encases each lash in a tube, binding to your lashes better than conventional formulas to give you optimal volume and holding power.

<![CDATA[Mascara that won't run at the gym (even if you do)]]> Tue, 25 Mar 2014 10:19:27 +0000 raveinfo When confronted with the getting-ready-for-the-gym dilemma, we're usually told to forgo the makeup altogether.

A StyleList article by Deborah Dunham explores all the reasons we shouldn't sweat with it on as well as the best ways to shun that advice for those who refuse to sweat sans-products.

Exercising opens the pores which invites sweat as well as any foundation or makeup sitting on top of the skin. This leads to more breakouts and skin problems. Besides, a sweaty face tracked with runny makeup may be less attractive than no makeup at all.

Luckily, there are low risk strategies to avoid these common pitfalls.

Go for less cakier applications of foundation and keep the concealer minimal.

Water-resistant mascara and tinted moisturizer are also essential. A quick swipe of a tubing mascara might be your best bet for looking polished when you hit the treadmill.

If you want to look great while you're dancing and having a wonderful time, the key is long-lasting makeup that won't quit on you in the hot weather.

For starters, use a tinted moisturizer rather than foundation to even out your complexion. These formulas are lighter and look more natural, so you won't have to worry about sweating off your makeup. Use lip and cheek stain to give yourself a natural flush that won't smudge off as you spend your day in the sun.

On your eyes, blinc's bold liquid eyeliner is perfect for adding definition and helping you achieve the latest trends, like cat eyes. The no-run, no-smudge formula won't budge until you're ready to take it off, meaning your eyes will look gorgeous throughout the show.

A bit of tube mascara can also help to lengthen and volumize your lashes, so you'll have plenty of fringe to flirt with should you stumble upon someone worthy of a sultry gaze.

They're a useful way to protect your eyes from the damaging rays of the sun and prevent fine lines and wrinkles from forming around your peepers. That means a smoother surface for your eyeshadows, liquid eyeliners and tube mascaras to work with, not to mention a younger-looking complexion!

Wear sunglasses whenever you're outside or in the car. This will not only prevent UV damage to your eyes, but it will stop you from squinting, which can eventually lead to crow's feet and wrinkles underneath your eyes if you're always doing it. Choose large frames for maximum coverage.

Of course, sunblock should also be used as well. While there are plenty of non-greasy formulas out there, it might be a good idea to use blinc's waterproof tube mascaras and lash primer just in case so your eye makeup stays put if the sunscreen gets a bit messy. With these products, your careful application will look just as great at the end of the day, no matter what.

Despite a careful application of tube mascara and liquid eyeliner, your lids can still give it away. Here's how to fix the problem.

According to Allure Magazine, one dermatologist recommends dabbing a bit of nasal spray on your lids to help calm the area down. "Nasal sprays contain something called oxymetazoline, which addresses both redness and swelling," she told the source. Just use a cotton ball to gently apply it.

An eyeshadow base, like blinc's Fountain of Youthful Color Eye Shadow Primer, can also help to solve the problem. Not only does it help your eyeshadow stay on all day, but it can conceal fine lines and wrinkles as well as offer your skin plenty of anti-aging benefits. Just smooth it on, then top with a peachy eyeshadow, which will help to combat blue, purple or gray tones that might be ruining your look. Afterward, apply tube mascara and liquid eyeliner as usual to finish your look.

If you ever wake up looking less-than-gorgeous, here are a few tips to get your eyes back to normal.

According to Allure Magazine, one quick fix is to use a tea bag as a compress. The caffeine in the tea helps to constrict blood vessels, while the tannins in the bag will help to reduce inflammation. In addition, the pressure on the area will help to reduce puffiness.

If you're not a tea drinker, any cold compress will also do the trick, whether it's a bag of peas from the freezer, two cucumber slices or even your regular eye cream that's been stored in the fridge. Cold can help to shrink capillaries and improve the area's drainage. Even giving yourself a gentle massage can work wonders.

Once your eyes are de-puffed, a bit of concealer on your undereye area will cover up any dark circles. Liquid eyeliner and tube mascara can help draw the right kind of attention to your eyes and help to define your features.

However, it's hard to imagine looking your best when you're working out and sweating bullets.

Just because you're exercising doesn't mean you have to drop all of your efforts to look glamorous while getting in shape. There are a few ways you can look hot while staying hit at the gym.

First, find form-flattering clothing that keeps you dry and comfortable while working out. This means steering clear of those baggy sweatpants that might be holding you back from looking your best.

Next, don't be afraid to put on a little foundation to give yourself a natural glow before you work out. This can cover up any unsightly blemishes beforehand and improve the overall appearance of your skin.

Finally, apply tube mascara and liquid eyeliner from blinc to give your eyes some pop. These cosmetics are composed of a no-run formula that is guaranteed not to smudge, even during your most vigorous workouts.

However, many women try to avoid applying cosmetics prior to exercising in for fear of clogging their pores and increasing the chances of a breakout.

While it's true that wearing certain types of makeup may do more harm than good to your skin while working out, Mother Nature News reports that not all cosmetics are inappropriate for rigorous activity.

It's possible to wear concealer and foundation before hitting the gym, as long as you pay attention to the type you are using. For instance, oil-based cosmetics are prone to smudging over time and can clog pores. Instead, mineral-based or natural foundations and makeup should be used to allow the skin to breathe and remain flawless during exercise.

If you're especially concerned about your eye makeup smudging while you're working out, invest in blinc's liquid eyeliner and tube mascara to relieve your anxiety. These cosmetics are composed of a no-run formula that won't smudge, even while you're pumping iron.

Water-resistant blinc liquid eyeliner is something you can throw on in the morning, and it will stay in place even if you decide to splash around in the water or play a game of volleyball.

Wearing mascara on the beach may seem like a potential nightmare, but not with tube mascara. This product will encase your lashes in tubes and won't run, smudge or crease throughout the day. Now you won't have to worry about the dreaded raccoon eye!

While you could opt for waterproof products, many of them can be extremely expensive and can go on a lot thicker than other designs. Products like blinc mascara will encase your lashes in tubes, preventing your lashes from running, clumping or smudging throughout the day.

Even if you've been up all night changing diapers and warming bottles, if you have five minutes and a good lash curler, you can look your best for the rest of the day, according to the Orange County Register.

First, using a neutral shade, apply a coat of shadow to your lid. This will help brighten up those peepers and reduce the tired redness that comes from a lack of sleep. Next, grab your favorite lash curler and use liberally. Doing so will make your eyes appear more open than they may actually be.

However, leaving your regular tube mascara, liquid eyeliner and other makeup on while you sleep has many negative effects on your skin.

The ingredients in your normal makeup can mix with your skin's natural oils, as well as any dirt and grime that you managed to accumulate throughout the day. This combination can get clogged in your pores, creating unsightly blemishes and irritation. Luckily, blinc's cosmetic products don't have any of these effects because they're specially formulated not to clash with your skin.

Your blinc tube mascara and liquid eyeliner are formulated to last all day and into the night, and they're safe to sleep in if you ever forget to take off your makeup. However, you shouldn't leave blinc makeup on every night.

If you're really short on time at night but still want to have a clean face, all it takes is a quick swipe of a cleansing towelette to get rid of dirt. Keep a pack by your bedside table just in case you ever find yourself in bed with makeup on.

If that's the case, it's easy to take your makeup from day to night. The Beauty Department suggests assessing your makeup situation in the mirror, then deciding what needs to be fixed. Your lash primer and tube mascara should be intact, but your foundation and lipstick may have strayed throughout the day.

Reapply concealer on any spots which have resurfaced, then apply a powdered foundation to combat any shine you may have developed. Darken up your eye makeup with a bit more eyeshadow and a liquid eyeliner, then smooth on a bit of blush. Apply a bolder shade of lipstick and you'll be ready for a night out!

We've all been there, and it's really no fun to dread curling your lashes - especially since it makes such a huge difference in the appearance of your eyes!

To top it off, regular lash curlers take a lot of squeezing to get the right amount of curl. You usually have to start at the base of your lashes, squeeze for a few seconds, then move to the middle, squeeze, then do one more squeeze near the top. Enough already!

A heated eyelash curler from blinc delivers just the right amount of heat to give your lashes a long-lasting curl. It works in seconds, so you won't have to spend precious minutes in the morning trying to achieve the perfect curl.

Once your lashes are curled and fabulous, a bit of lash primer and tube mascara will ensure that your eyes look gorgeous, wide awake and flawless all day long. Why would you ever want to go back to that awful pincher?

A couple of good skincare products can drastically reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles around your eyes, so invest in some to use on a daily basis after cleansing. An anti-aging moisturizer is a good base to apply before your makeup during the day, but you'll also need a product to use each night that will help make your skin flawless in the morning.

Invest in an eye cream with plenty of antioxidants and brightening ingredients. Apply it before you go to bed, then use a primer on top so the active ingredients will penetrate and be sealed in, working their magic while you sleep.

Whether it's in a prominent spot on your forehead or nestled into the crook of your nose, blemishes like these can ruin the effect of your favorite eye makeup products, like tube mascara and liquid eyeliner. Your eyes will be drawn to your zit - not your peepers, but luckily there's one tip that can help.

Spot-treating acne with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid products is your best bet, but doing so will take one or two days before you start noticing results, reports Allure Magazine. Instead of waiting for blemishes to pop up before you treat them, you should be taking preventative measures.

Even if you don't see any pimples at the moment, you should be using an anti-acne cream and face wash if you know you're prone to them. A thin layer over the areas where zits typically show up is all you need. Keep in mind that some of these products can be drying, so it's best to follow up with an oil-free moisturizer.

Luckily, with the use of a heated eyelash curler and a bit of tube mascara, you can be the perfect host without having to worry about your look, according to HometownLife.com.

Primer is the secret to crafting a beautiful look that can handle the rigors of cooking meals and chasing after children. Be sure to use it before you apply eyeshadow or foundation for a superior hold throughout your gathering.

Curling your lashes with a heated eyelash curler and then using water-resistant mascara can help them maintain a well-manicured look during your festivities. Be sure to apply one coat of mascara at a time to avoid the risk of lashes clumping together.

Paying attention to your eyebrows may go overlooked this holiday season, so stay protected with blinc Eyebrow Mousse. This will help provide water-resistant color to fill in your eyebrows and moisturize the skin underneath.

When you're in a hurry to get out the door in the morning, you want to use only a couple of products to cut down on time, but you still want them to make you look wide awake. Before you reach for your tube mascara, try these tips.

1. Use a tinted moisturizer, which will hydrate your skin and give you coverage.

2. Apply a cheek stain on your cheeks, eyelids and lips. These products are often meant to be used as an all-in-one, and the monochromatic look is flattering.

3. Use a heated eyelash curler to make your eyes appear wider and more awake. It's worth the extra 10 seconds to do!

4. Finally, apply two coats of blinc's tube mascara on your lashes to define your eyes and complete your look. Your face will be perfectly put-together, and no one will know that it only took you about five minutes to achieve!

However, keeping up your appearance can help you feel more confident about yourself, and you never know who you might meet on the way! Here are a few ways you can ensure a flawless look while you're en route to your next destination

1. Pack a refreshing facial mist. Many mineral-enhanced complexion mists can deliver your skin the hydration it needs while giving you vital nutrients. They can also set your makeup and make your skin look dewy and glowing. Not to mention - the spritz feels great!

2. Don't forget your blinc cosmetics. Tube mascara, liquid eyeliner and eyebrow mousse are musts, as they really help to enhance your eyes and boost your overall appearance - without the fuss of other products. Plus, you know they'll stay put all day, so touch-ups in that tiny airplane bathroom are a thing of the past.

3. Bring an all-in-one beauty product. As for your cheeks, lips and eyelids, one product is really all you need to give yourself a fresh face. Choose a peachy-pink stain or some kind of cream bronzer to provide all of these areas with a pop of color.

<![CDATA[A lash curler for the fashionista in your life]]> Thu, 13 Feb 2014 07:06:39 +0000 raveinfo know+a+fashionista+who+could+use+a+fabulous+gift_3356_800644903_0_0_14005552_300Everyone has one of those friends who just seems to have it all when it comes to fashion and beauty. They're practically gurus who understand everything there is to know about the latest beauty products and clothing. But does your fashionista friend have a heated eyelash curler?

Eyelashes that aren't curled act like a curtain in front of your eyes, which doesn't do you any good when you're trying to show off your gorgeous pair. Your friend may have all the latest eyeshadow colors and mascaras, but if she isn't using a heated lash curler, she's just not getting the best results.

A blinc heated lash curler is the perfect gift that will make her eyes look wide awake and brighter. Standard lash curlers can be painful if you accidentally get too close to the lid, but blinc's curler is easy to use and it takes just seconds to achieve the perfect curl every time. She'll be awestruck by the results.

Instead of relying on another gift card this season, get your trendy friend a blinc heated lash curler to update her look. She'll definitely thank you for it!

<![CDATA[How to cut your makeup application down to 5 minutes]]> Tue, 11 Feb 2014 13:26:16 +0000 raveinfo five+minutes+it+s+possible_3356_800771054_0_0_7042691_300Most likely, you've had mornings that went horribly wrong even before you stepped out the front door. Whether you blame it on technology (why didn't your alarm go off?) or yourself (did you really need that extra drink last night?), sometimes waking up late is inevitable. Before you resign yourself to a day of unwashed hair and sloppy makeup, use these tips to cut down on your beauty product application time.

1. Skip moisturizer and foundation. Instead of taking the time to smooth on moisturizer and impeccably blend your foundation, use a tinted moisturizer or BB cream. You'll have coverage and hydration in one, and there's no blending required.

2. Simplify your eye makeup. A blinc heated eyelash curler is quick and easy to use, and it'll give your fringe lasting curve that will make your eyes appear larger. A touch of tube mascara will lengthen and define your lashes, and you won't have to worry about re-applying. That's all it takes!

3. Use a lip and cheek stain. One product can define your cheekbones and brighten up your pout, giving you a fresher face in no time at all. A couple of swipes and a bit of blending with your fingers is all you need!
