Everyone needs their beauty sleep to ensure that their bodies are ready to take on the new day. However, to be honest, for us makeup junkies, it’s a case of beauty versus sleep.

If you’re one of the many who sacrifices the latter for the former, don’t worry; you’re not alone. There are also days when we get up a little earlier to spend more time perfecting our winged eyeliner or properly blending our contour with our blusher.

Having said that, we know the feeling of wanting to sleep in an extra hour instead of doing a 90-minute makeup routine. So if you ever want to hit that ‘snooze’ button a few more times, but still want to look fresh and radiant once you step in your office, here are our favourite time-saving beauty tips!


Use BB/CC creams or cushion foundations

Today, there is a wide selection of base products that will allow you to combine multiple steps into one. BB and CC creams, or cushion foundations, are all the rage right now because they truly are multi-purpose. They’re a moisturiser, sunblock, and a foundation in one. You just skipped three steps right there!


Focus on one facial feature only

Focusing on just one part of your face will enable you to create different looks every day and shorten your makeup routine. There might be days where you want the focus to be on your eyes, or others on your lips. The point is, instead of spending a lot of time perfecting all your features, choose to do one to save a bit of time; and don’t worry, you’ll still look gorgeous!


Use a multi-purpose product

Have you ever tried using your bronzer as your eyeshadow? Or using your lipstick as your blusher? Perhaps that concealer which has great coverage can pass off as a foundation? Using 1 product for different purposes is great if you want to save time. It stops you from having to dig through your makeup stash to find the other products, and it’ll save you money since you’ll be using less products!


Prep your products the night before

We’ve all heard of prepping meals the night, or days, before. So why not do the same with your makeup? All you have to do is plan out the products you’ll be using and put them in a separate container which you can easily access. That way, when morning comes, all the products you need are ready to go!

Goth is one of the few fashion subcultures that are called 'alternative' for the very reason that they don't fit the trendy and preppy fashion category. But that was a thing of the past. With the fashion and beauty industry opening to diversity in the hopes of breaking stereotypes, what used to be a separate fashion entity now makes its way to Fall/Winter 2016 runways.

Modern Gothic or Gothic Glam is one of this season's hottest trends. From black rimmed eyes and dark lips to laces and chokers, this look is all about straying away from the cool girl look and going directly to full on badass. It can be intimidating at first but it's actually an easy look to pull off. 

So if you're in the mood to change up your look this season, here's all you need to know about this trend. 


It's more than just a throwback

Like the other trends that had its resurgence, the modern version of "the goth" is much more wearable. Going for hardcore piercings and platform boots are now up to your discretion and even hair streaks can be taken out of the equation. Upgrade your goth look to a chicer, more glam version by adding some glitter to your smoky eye or by sporting a red lip along with that all black outfit.  

Balance is key

Trying on an 'alternative' beauty and fashion trend can get you more excited than you think, which can lead to a tendency of going overboard. Just like any other beauty look, modern goth is all about keeping all the elements of your look in place. Keep in mind that the basic principles of bold eyes-nude lip or neutral eyes-bold lip also goes for this trend. So keep your MOTD clean and sleek without losing that mysterious gothic vibe. 


It gives your other moody shades a time to shine

Black may be the foundation of the goth look but since we're going for its revamped version, why not try the other moody shades in your makeup palette? Burgundies, deep plums, and royal blues can work its wonders to make this modern gothic look work. Just stick to a dark, fall-inspired colour scheme and you're definitely good to go. 


It's more practical than you expect

If you're not a fan of mixing and matching your clothes or trying to blend that eyeshadow perfectly, this trend will make you jump in glee. The pale, almost-white complexion that the old goth trend started has taken a more 'naturally flushed' turn for 2016. A sweep of mascara, a little bit of blush, a bold lip -- that's your MOTD done! Who would have thought that this 'theatrical' trend will make its comeback to make our beauty routines easier than ever?
