Most women today often have more than one job -- they're loving mothers, caring sisters, powerful executives, creative artists, loyal best friends, and so much more. So juggling both a hectic work and personal life can leave them at a loss when it comes for time for themselves, much less a beauty routine!

Luckily, we have come up with skincare and beauty tips for all professional and busy women out there! So if you’re someone who’s constantly on-the-go and needs quick and easy routines, then keep reading below for some easy skincare and beauty regimens!

Morning Skincare

For the day, you don’t have to cleanse your face so much because your skin hasn’t been exposed to a lot of external factors! So cleaning your skin with some micellar water will remove any surface dirt and debris that could have accumulated during your sleep, while hydrating it for a soft finish. Follow your cleanser with a moisturiser with SPF to protect your skin from the harsh Sun rays, which can cause premature aging and wrinkles, as well as even and smooth out your skin!

Makeup for the Office

For a quick makeup routine that can take you from bare to glam in under 15 minutes, take a powder foundation and liberally apply this all over your face, layering more on areas you think need more coverage. Follow it up with a highlighting concealer under your eyes to make you look more awake, and take a tinted brow gel and brush it on your eyebrows for an easy brow-grooming session! Take a shimmery, light or nude-coloured eyeshadow for a sheer wash of colour on your lids, followed by coats of mascara, and apply your favourite lipstick as your blush and lip colour! Easy, right?


Evening Skincare

At the end of the day, when you’re tired and lazy to do anything else, just get up and go to your bathroom to do a quick run of your evening skincare routine — trust us, you’ll thank us the next day!

Remove all your makeup using the soft side of the NIVEA 3-in-1 Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Wipes, and follow it up by gently rubbing the textured side to exfoliate your skin and remove dead skin cells. Double cleanse in the evening by using a cleansing oil to remove any bit of makeup that may have been left, and after, mix in a drop of your face serum with your night time moisturiser to repair, restore, and hydrate your skin while you sleep! Finish off your routine with a few dots of eye cream and you’ll be ready to hit the sheets!

Taking two hours to get glammed up is like a spa treatment for us beauty junkies. But, just like those treatments, it can’t be an every day thing. Most of us don’t even have an hour or so to get ready in the morning, so we often have to resort to tried and tested multi-purpose beauty products.

Multi-purpose products are amazing because these timesavers will surely get you out the door in under 30 minutes or much less! They’re even perfect for traveling because they take up little space in your luggage! So if you want to cut your beauty routines in half, but still look gorgeous, keep scrolling down for the 6 multi-purpose beauty products that are perfect for travelers and gals on-the-go!

Cushion Foundations

A moisturiser, foundation, and SPF in one? Yes, please! Cushion foundations are all the rage now, and for good reason — they’re extremely compact and easy to use, and they treat and even out the skin! So if you find that you lack the time to properly apply your moisturiser, foundation, and sunscreen, just pat this on your face and you’ll be good to go!

Lip and Cheek Tint

One of the first multi-purpose products to come out in the beauty market, lip and cheek tints have come a long way since then! Now, their formulas range from sheer to opaque, shimmery to matte finishes, and compact to stick forms! Whichever formula, colour, and finish you want, you will surely find it in this 2-in-1 product to give you that natural-but-gorgeous flush!


Contour Kits

When we say “contour kits,” we don’t mean those large palettes, but the tiny ones that look like eyeshadow duos. These kits, if you haven’t already guessed, make great eyeshadow duos! The highlight shade will beautifully awaken your peepers, while the contour shade will add subtle definition to the, so you can get a chiseled face and defined eyes in just one small compact!


Waterproof Mascara

Besides being able to hold a curl for days, waterproof mascaras make excellent eyeliners. How? Simply take an angled brush, dip it into the mascara wand, and line your eyes! If you want to go for a smokey smudged out look, just take a smudge brush and softly brush it up near your lashes for that “perfectly imperfect” look.


Micellar Water

Forget about a separate cleansing balm or oil to remove makeup, another cleanser, and a toner because micellar water will do all of that for you! If you like doing double cleanses to thoroughly remove your makeup at night, just take a second cotton pad and rub this all over your face! It will cleanse just as well and tone your face to get you ready for your moisturiser or cream!


Eyeshadow Sticks

If you’re not a huge fan of contour kits and just want a simple eyeshadow look, then eyeshadow sticks will be your new go-to, which excellently work as eyeliners too! Plus, they’re great for day-to-night makeup transformations because by simply applying it all over your lower lashline, you will have yourself a smokey eye look that took less than a minute to do!

Editor’s Note: We sent our ClozetteINSIDER Contributor, Resa Peralta, to the recent #CreamSilkTransformations event held at the World Trade Center Tent in The Philippines. Here’s her Insider experience at Creamsilk’s latest campaign launch, aimed at empowering the modern Filipina!

--------------------------


It was such a privilege to attend the recent #CreamSilkTransformations event as they showcased the Modern Filipina beauty that goes beyond limitless opportunities. There were hundreds of guests from fashion and beauty professionals, bloggers, and media—all gathered for one goal to empower, inspire, and influence every woman to be their very best and experience a transformation from within.



The event had a lot of fun-filled activities focusing on beauty, fashion, and of course hair care tips. These were showcased in every workshop done by the industry leaders. There were also free hair make overs, free photoshoots from professional photographers, awesome food, cocktails, and freebies from Cream Silk.
One of the most memorable things that happened to me during the event was being asked to be a model at the Metro Magazine Workshop with the professional photographer, Sara Black.



I will never forget this amazing time in my life. This may seem like nothing, but for me it was a transformative moment as I’ve always been struggling when it comes to confidence. Years ago, I could never imagine myself standing in front of so many people because I was afraid that everyone would judge me because of how I look or how weak they perceive me to be. But there I was, courageously and fearlessly standing in front of many people, a living testimony for every woman who struggles with their self confidence! You can be confidently beautiful by believing in yourself and knowing that you are a woman of worth.

The main highlight of the event was the unveiling of the new Cream Silk #ModernFilipinas ambassadors. I witnessed a live cover photo shoot done by the top industry leaders with these beautiful Modern Filipinas: Julie Anne San Jose for Meg Magazine, Coleen Garcia for Preview, Nadine Lustre for Metro Magazine, Heart Evangelista for Mega Magazine, Rachelle Anne Go for Yes! Magazine, and Yassi Pressman for Cosmopolitan.

Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach also made her first public appearance in the Philippines since winning the crown. Pia is such an inspiration and a wonderful example for all women out there who may feel weak or hopeless on their dreams or on themselves. Truly she is the epitome of the Modern Filipina beauty as she encouraged everyone to not give up on their dreams, with the hopes that her experience in the world stage can truly become an inspirational message to every Modern Filipina that aspires to be the best and to be beyond beautiful.
