Essential Beauty Hacks Every Busy Woman Should Know

Beauty Hacks

Let’s be honest – we all are very busy whether we work full-time, stay-at-home with our kiddos or work from home. There is the paucity of time to look like a queen every single day. What if I tell you that there are five essential beauty hacks that can transform your life? Yes, you read it right…just five!

This is a guest post written by Amy Mia Goldsmith.

Women are wonderful, busy creatures who can do a million things at once, but when we wake up in the morning, the first thing on our mind is usually “five more minutes”. Nobody likes to rush and have a hectic morning routine, and you might even prefer to go completely makeup-free – and that’s all perfectly fine! But in you don’t want to spend the morning conversation with the cute guy in the coffee shop just worrying about how low your dark circles are reaching – here are an essential beauty hacks every busy woman should know.

1. Get in a routine

There is nothing worse than scrambling around every morning trying to put yourself together and look presentable. And why would you ever do that, when you can simply structure a morning routine that ensures you have enough time for the morning cup of coffee, a healthy breakfast, and the perfect outfit+makeup+hair combo. Wake up earlier if you need to and follow the same routine every morning. It will become your second nature in no time!

2. Have a go-to everyday look

There is a look that suits every person, and that goes for your whole head-to-toe. If you like smokey eyes, then always have the right palette and a clean brush to do it in minutes. And if you feel like a boss in pants and shirt combo, then stock up on those staples and always have a pair ready to throw on. The same goes for hairstyles, shoes and even things such as breakfast! This means that in busy moments, you don’t have to waste time choosing what to go for because you have your everyday look down to the T.

3. Have an emergency bag

There are millions of things that can go wrong in a day, but I like to make sure that my face is not one of them. An emergency makeup kit is the one thing that is always in my bag, and there is really no excuse not to have one. My Jane Iredale makeup kit is always in my bag, so I have a little bit of everything to touch up with, as well as my spare go-to lipstick shade and oil blotting sheets. Even if I am running super-late I can do my makeup in the car on my way there or in the bathroom when I arrive.

4. Fake it ’till you make it

We might be powerful women with a lot of superpowers, but time manipulation isn’t one of them, and there are some days when you just can’t get it done. Don’t stress, that’s what dry shampoo is there for. Opt for a CC cream, rather than heavy foundation since it takes a lot less time to apply and blend in, and put on a simple cat eye with a red lip to make you look put together and professional. A top bun is a great way to deal with dirty hair, and if your clothes have wrinkles – crunch it even more and rock the look.

5. Master the day-to-night

If there’s one thing I most definitely don’t have time for it’s to completely change my look after work to go out. But there are so many makeup looks and outfits that are easy to transition from day to night, that you will look like you spent hours getting ready when really you just stepped out of the office. It’s perfect for long work days and early dinner dates.

By mastering just these few tricks, you will find that it’s more than easy to look dolled up, no matter how little time you have on your hands. So rock your look and go show everyone who’s the boss.

  1. Yes to having a signature look! I have a few go-to looks depending on where I’m going. It makes getting ready in a flash SO much easier 🙂

  2. Now that I’ve got a full-time job and can’t run home whenever I need something, I’m really realizing the importance of an emergency bag! I’ve started to just keep concealer and eyeliner in my desk at work.

  3. Great list, ill definitely share this post with girlfriend, btw to be honest i don’t have enough knowledge of beauty hacks but i always notice, my girlfriend bag has always dozen of beauty products lol

  4. Yes, some bad days do come across in a month. To me I usually go with a high bun and heavy mascara’s to get that professional look paired up with trousers. Enjoyed the post.

  5. i just recently bought a palette for my everyday look and a cc cream just so i have something to cover my red areas but light enough for work.. I would have to agree w/ you w/ the morning routine. its hard for me to wake up in the morning, but it definitely helps! 🙂

  6. There has been much written about having simple pieces for work that you can mix and match. In fact, my mom has 8-10 buttton down white cotten shirts and the same number of black or tan pants. She wears them nearly every day either under a sweater or jacket over top. For her, getting ready in the morning is a breeze! x

  7. I have an every day go to look which is what I generally have for work and general days out and I like to keep essentials like concealer, lipstick and blotting papers in my hand bag too x

  8. These are all great tips. I always carry an emergency kit in my bag that includes quite a few things that can save my day in case of need.

  9. That is a wonderful list. My vote is on the “go-to look”. As a mom I had to create a look that makes me look “alive” and can be created in less than 5 minutes (basically it’s some concealer under the eyes, mascara, eyebrow powder, bronzer to the cheeks and a lip gloss), but it works every time 😉

  10. The most useful trick is day to night outfit. Sometimes when I leave home in the morning there is no chance for me to step by after work to change. So in a few situations I gotta wear some nice clothes that I can easily transpofr into a an evening outfit 🙂 Some tricks with make up works too 🙂

    I love fashion as you can do a lot of interessting tricks with it.

    And also I love your blog’s logo 😀


  11. Really helpful tips.Whether we work at office or at home, we can use those five tips. As a blogger and a mom,one thing that affect my beauty is being stressed.Putting some make up and a smile in our face, will beautify our looks.

  12. The emergency bag is an excellent idea! Just two weeks ago we were at the wedding party and I look great before leaving but I added a touch more eyeliner that totally messed everything up. With no time I had to fix it it the car bu without succes. So I decided to pull out my false eyelashes and redo my make up and while still in the car….just to realise I forgot my makeup bag!!! Imagine how my heart sank and it was nooo way we could turn back. When we arrived I grab the first female guest I knew and headed to the toilet. PS and I forgot my highheels in the hotel room because I was wearing my jogging for comfy reason and thought to change them when arrive!???

    1. Oh My God! This is one experience hard to forget but I am sure it will turn out to be a good laugh after some time. I faced a similar experience but luckily, I didn’t mess up with shoes. Thanks for sharing your story.
