Most days you hardly have enough time and energy to cook yourself breakfast, let alone put together an amazing look. We might feel like spending time on making ourselves look good is frivolous and a waste of time, but never underestimate the power that comes from feeling like you look great.
Simply liking what you see in the mirror as you rush out the house lifts your mood and gives you an extra confidence boost for the day. Think about the days where you do manage to get it right (when you actually have time to do a perfectly winged cat-eye or manage to not smudge your lipstick on your takeaway coffee), and know that it's possible to have that feeling every day.
The trick? Find what works for you and perfect it. We have all experimented with our looks in the past and made huge mistakes (think about that purple lipstick that is still in the back of your drawer, or that crimping iron you thought you would gets loads of use out of). It's time to totally eliminate any product or look that doesn't suit you or make you feel good, and find what does.
Think about what people compliment you on the most and play it up. Maybe people are always saying you have beautiful eyes or that they wish they had your hair. Choose your best features and make them pop so you can get those compliments all the time (not that we need other peoples' affirmation, but it sure does feel good).
Another factor you need to take into account when discovering your signature beauty routine is reality. Sure, you feel your best when you've had a fresh blow dry and are wearing a bold red lip, but realistically can you achieve that every morning?
There are about three different types of people when it comes to make up routine, which one are you?
