Quick Fix Christmas Fashion

Pretty in Minutes Step #1 Wash your face

This should be the foundation of your skin care regimen. Whether it’s in the morning or at night, never skip washing your face because it’s the only way for you to get most of the dirt and oil off your face.

Here are 5 simple ways that would help you clean your face properly:
  1. Use a facial cleanser that suits your skin type
  2. Once you lather on the soap on your face, massage it lightly all over for at least a minute
  3. Exfoliate using a facial scrub at least twice a week
  4. To avoid bacteria build up, use paper towels or a clean towel when wiping your face
  5. Start and end the your facial cleansing by splashing your face with water for at least 3 times
You’ll surely be wide awake and ready for the day after a refreshing face cleaning.

Pretty in Minutes Step #2 Tie your hair in a messy bun

Hollywood is just plain crazy about this hairstyle. Now, everyone can just look fabulous even when they’re running late or having a bad hair day. Messy buns are really the epitome of effortless style and beauty so we should use it more often to achieve an effortless chic style.

Messy buns are easy to do. My favorite way of doing it is just putting my hair all together in a high ponytail, and then I twist my hair on a ponytail several times before I bring it up and around to create a circle. Once I have a bun, I secure my hair with about 6 bobby pins to keep it in place for the entire day.

Since there are many ways to do the messy bun, find which one best fits your style. You can stick to one that works for you or try as many ways depending on your outfit and mood.

Pretty in Minutes Step #3 Slather on moisturizer and sunscreen

If you only have time to put on one or two facial creams, let it be your moisturizer and sunscreen. These two would keep your face supple and protected throughout the day so never forget them.

Selecting the right moisturizer and sunscreen for you is like looking for the perfect pair of leather boots. Aside from finding one that fits you well, you also have to consider what it’s made of (materials used) and if it suits your lifestyle well. Getting a pair of knee-high boots doesn’t make much sense if you live right next to the beach, right?

Pretty in Minutes Step #4 Draw your eyebrows

Did you know that darkening your eyebrows can make so much difference in the way you look? Having well defined brows does wonders in opening up your eye area so don’t forget to define those arches very well to make the upper half of your eyes prominent and noticeable.

Pretty in Minutes Step #5 Put some color on your lips

types of lipstick

And for that final touch, splash some color on your lips using your favorite lip balm or lipstick. When it comes to painting your lips, you can instantly go charming with pinks or sizzling hot with red shades. Putting on an orange lipstick can give an instant beach glow when you pair it with a bronze for that tanned effect.

Do you have other instant fixes? Whether it’s an outfit or a pair of shoes that you love wearing when you don’t have the luxury of time – I’d love to hear how you pull things together in just under 5 minutes. Your tips and tricks can surely help especially this holiday season. Thanks in advance!
