The Ultimate Skincare Guide For Lazy Girls | Clozette

Skincare should always be an important part of anyone's beauty routine. And when Korean beauty became a big thing, more products apart from the usual moisturisers and eye creams suddenly emerged in the market. But not everyone was happy to follow the hype because too many steps means less time for sleep, and it's not something you can afford in the midst of a crazy, busy lifestyle.

So if you love your beauty products but find having too many steps in your routine a little too much, then we've got good news for you. You never have to compromise getting healthy skin even when you're feeling lazy with these tips!

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

Go for cleansing oil



Feel like hitting the hay as soon as you reach your house? Make sure you have some cleansing oil available for some quick rinsing. It helps melt off your makeup upon application and emulsifies unlike your typical makeup remover, making it easier to wipe everything off with a tissue or rinse off with water. Plus, make sure you go for a product with moisturising ingredients to at least help your skin rejuvenate even if you skip out on your night cream.

Invest in these three things



Heard of skincare products that people actually swear by? Look up which ones match your skin type and try to give it a go. If you're not a huge fan of having ten to fifteen products in your stash, a quick pat of essential oils, a moisturiser, and the ever-so-important eye cream are your best bets — and they take just a minute or two to apply. 

Keep them in plain sight

After a long and busy day, looking through your drawers or bothering to even go beyond washing your face and brushing your teeth to get a hold of your skincare products can mean exerting a lot of effort. Skipping a few steps on your routine can be something you might do often if your brain is too worked up from stress. But hey, we get you! 


So the best solution is to keep the products on your bedside table or somewhere you can always reach for before bed. Not only does it serve as a reminder, but you can also think of it as your swift winding down session before getting that well-deserved rest. Since keeping just a handful of essentials in mind for a quick routine is advised, you also won't have to worry about the clutter. 



Hydrate

Contribute to your daily skincare routine by drinking water. Not only are you nourishing your body, but it also helps your blood circulation, which helps give your skin a naturally radiant and healthy glow.

When creating or putting together your office makeup bag, it should always conform to these three “rules”: It should contain just the essentials, but it also has to contain products you’ll need in case of a beauty emergency, and — this is the most important one — it should perfectly fit in whatever purse you decide to wear to the office.

Now that you know everything there is to know about creating the perfect office makeup bag, it’s time to start thinking of the products you’ll be putting in it. Aside from your trusty concealer, lipstick, and mascara, you’ll need a few makeup tools too to get you through numerous meetings, important business lunches, and events.

So if you’re a 20-something millennial, keep reading for the eight beauty tools you need to always have in your office makeup kit.

Cotton Buds

From erasing mascara flakes to beautifully smudging eyeliner to perfecting that lip colour, you can never have too much use for this tool. Keep a few in your kit to keep your makeup look in tip-top shape throughout the day.

Oil Blotting Sheets

Instead of applying more powder to mattify your complexion, use an oil blotting sheet instead. It will make your foundation look less cakey and freshen everything up. For example, if you find that your concealer has creased, just take an oil blotting sheet and gently dab it on your undereye area to absorb the excess product, and your concealer will look smooth and fresh again.

Bobby Pins and Hair Elastics

Whether you need it to change up your hairstyle or just to get your hair away from your face, you should always have these hair tools in your arsenal.

Clean Spoolie

If you suddenly notice that your mascara looks clumpy or your brows look unruly, a clean spoolie will fix that up for you.

Eye Drops

Long working hours can often result in tired and red eyes. So if you have an important meeting to get to and don’t want to look haggard, eye drops will quickly freshen and awaken your peepers to make them look whiter and more alert.

Hydrating Face Mist

The air conditioner in your office can dehydrate your skin; so to make sure it stays dewy and hydrated all day, you’re going to need a face mist. You don’t have to buy the big bottles because a lot of brands now sell travel sizes.

Breath Mints

At the office, it’s always safer and better to make sure you have minty fresh breath because you never who you might meet or bump into in the next five minutes. 

Hand Cream

Speaking of meeting new people, make sure your hands — which show your true age — are in their best condition i.e. soft, smooth, and hydrated. So don’t forget to always pack a small tube of hand cream in your kit to nourish them.

Whether you're going for a natural and sheer look or a full and dolled-up finish, something that gives you a look that's similar to a natural flush is the blush. And sure, we have highlighters and bronzers, but if you're just up for a quick pop of colour at any time of the year, these cheek-y (pun intended) products are the definite beauty go-to. 

So if you're having a crazy time finding the perfect blush for rosy cheeks that steal the scene, here are our top tips on how to get the perfect blush for your skin tone. 

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

Fair skin


If you're a porcelain princess, our first tip is to stay away from crazy reds and overly pigmented pinks. These colours will look really harsh against your skin, leaving you with a splotchy and unnatural finish. So what's your perfect blush? Something light and soft, ranging from peachy pinks and flesh toned shades that look soft and subtle on the apple of your cheeks. 

Plus, give blushes with flecks of gold a try! They will give your skin a healthier, more radiant look that's perfect for your pale skin.
--------------------------

Medium skin



Many Asian women fall under this category, whether you have cool, warm, or gold undertones. Lucky for you ladies, your skin's very welcoming of some blush lovin'! Your skin can adapt to rosy pinks, soft reds, and if you're feeling bold, a warm touch of mauve — so feel free to play with those colours. 

Oh, and here's a bonus: You can even go for bronze shades, too!

Deep skin



If you're a deep-skinned doll, you can rock blushes to their full effect (insert all our blusher envy here, gah!). Give your cheeks the loving they deserve with rosy reds, oranges, and even purple-y shades.  When it comes to you and your choice of blushers, it's never too crazy to go all out.
