Summers seem to get busier and busier each year. Weddings (I’m at that stage where all my friends are tying the knot), backyard BBQs, concerts, road trips, vacations – those extra hours of daylight equal a very full schedule. But I’ve found 3 secrets to saving time at least through my beauty routine that I’ve adopted this summer. They’re super easy and will not only save you time, but leave you with a fresh,
natural summer beauty look.
1. Tinted eye lashes My esthetician at The Ten Spot is my new best friend since she started tinting my eye lashes. I used to always battle smudged or flaking mascara that ended up making me look tired even when I wasn’t. But eye lash tinting gives me glossy, black lashes (I have naturally dark blonde hair, so my lashes are quite light) on both the upper and lower sets (I never, ever put mascara on my bottom lashes for fear of getting major raccoon eyes). Now in the morning I just curl my lashes and go. Bonus: They’re totally cry proof for sappy weddings, beach friendly and perfect for travelling (see what
beauty items our editors never travel without here).
