1. It Has to Be Something You Can Reasonably Manage

Who doesnโ€™t want to look like theyโ€™re ready to step out on the red carpet every morning? The truth is thatโ€™s just not going to happen for most of us. The point here is that you need to come up with a routine that gives you the look you want, but is something you can do on your own without it taking a ton of time. Once you work out a doable routine, you should be able to get it done in no time.

2. Choose Products for Your Skin Type

Foundation is all well and good, unless you are using something that is designed for a skin type that you donโ€™t have. If you have dry skin, for example, you need skincare products and cosmetics that work for that. Same if you have oily, normal or combination skin. Read labels to be sure youโ€™re getting what you need.

3. Practice It when You Have Lots of Time

If youโ€™re starting a new beauty routine, take some time on the weekends or in the evenings to practice it. It will take a few days before the routine becomes easy to remember, but as they say, โ€œpractice makes perfect.โ€ Taking a bit of extra time to get your routine down pat will make mornings so much faster and easier.

4. Make Sure Youโ€™re Doing Things in the Right Order

Even the best beauty routine can quickly go out the window if you donโ€™t do things in the right order. Start by washing, then moisturizing your skin. Then apply sunscreen. Now, youโ€™re ready for foundation, concealer and your favorite eye shadow, blush and lip gloss. Doing things the right way ensures that it looks good and you donโ€™t mess anything up as you go.

Leave yourself enough time to get through your routine without worrying that youโ€™ll be late for work every morning.

6. Make Your Routine Easy by Prepping at Night

There are some things you can do at night to make your morning routine easier and faster. Prep your skin by washing and moisturizing before you go to bed.

7. Donโ€™t Be Afraid to Make Changes as Needed

Your routine will naturally need to change as time goes by. Maybe your skin freaks out for some reason and you need a new product. Or summertime comes and you need a foundation thatโ€™s a shade or two darker to match your glowing summer skin. Donโ€™t be such a slave to your routine that you arenโ€™t able to make tweaks as needed.
