Early Morning Routine Shortcuts--Not For Every Day

When I travel to Las Vegas, it's usually with a package deal that includes airfare, meals and transportation to and from the airport. It's a great way to travel. The downside is that the flight leaving Las Vegas is usually an early morning flight. Baggage pull is at 4:30 a.m. so you need to be up and have your bags packed. Meet up is usually at 5:30 a.m. to get ready to take the bus to the airport.

I am not one of those travelers who can go sans makeup and my normal morning routine is actually quite time consuming. I think that prepping my face takes way longer than the actual makeup application. Getting up at 3:30 a.m. and being ready before 4:30 is a challenge. Only with this last trip did I think up some early morning, time-saving steps to help.

My normal morning routine does not include washing my face with a cleanser. I feel like I'm washing off all of the skin care that I applied the night before to a clean face and all I did was sleep so I usually just rinse my face off and use a cleanser on my eyelids and eye brows. These are the two areas that I need to have absolutely clean and free of any oils. I have made it no secret that I use mezaik stretch fiber to help make and keep my eyelids double. To save time, I applied this the night before. It is waterproof so I can rinse my eyelids in the morning and not use any soap. It is an absolute must for me to draw in my eyebrows. I found a product that is pretty much budge proof. I also applied this the night before and just needed to do some touch ups. I did my regular night time skin care routine and instead of rinsing my face in the morning, I just applied the remainder of the normal morning skin care routine. It is not something that I would do on a regular basis but for those times when you're really pressed for time, it works. It probably shaved off a good 15 to 20 minutes of my normal morning routine.

Any other ideas that you have implemented?
