8 Beauty Shortcuts to Never Take ...


We’re all in a hurry to get ready in the morning or when we’re preparing to hit the hay at night and while we’re trying to save as much time as possible, there are some beauty shortcuts that you should avoid taking in order to maintain good skin and looking your absolute best!

See if you’ve ever taken any of these seemingly helpful shortcuts that could actually be working against you!

1. Sleeping Beauty

You’ve had a super long day at work or you’re back from a long night of dancing with your girls and you’re tipsy and tired but going to sleep with your makeup on is beauty shortcut you want to avoid at all costs!

Falling asleep with your makeup on can cause your makeup to rub off on your pillow and rub back in deeper into your skin causing breakouts and clog your pores!

Not to mention having to pry your eyes open from all that eye makeup and risking an eye infection!

When you’re tired and ready to pass out, use makeup remover wipes and you’re ready to catch some Z’s!

2. Dirty Work

So you hit snooze one too many times and you’re in a rush to get ready for work, again;

there’s nothing wrong with using dirty makeup brushes as a beauty shortcut, right?


Get in the habit of washing your makeup brushes at the very least once a week to avoid contaminating your skin with bacteria and dirt.

You could always keep a back-up set for travel or for those occasions where your main set of brushes are dirty so you always have a clean set ready to go!

3. Heat Wave

I’m guilty of taking this so-called speedy beauty solution;

I blow-dry my wet hair on the highest setting with the intent of speeding things up.

In reality, I’m just frying my hair and drying it out!

Plus, if your hair is dripping wet, your hair will take longer to dry anyway thus defeating the purpose.

What’s a girl to do?

Carefully remove all the water from your hair, use a quick hair dry towel or let it air dry for a little while, apply a heat protectant and then blow dry.

Yes, it’ll take a little longer but your hair will thank you!
