Tuesday's Tip

Even though I swear I will stop hitting the snooze button, sometimes I find myself rushing out the door. Here are some tips to ease through your beauty routine and hopefully prevent you from applying mascara at stop lights!

For hair: Start by massaging dry shampoo into your roots. I have raved about Salon Grafix dry shampoo in previous posts. It soaks up excess oils and adds texture. Pull hair back into a chignon and twist in Goody Simple Styles Spin Pins ($6.49 for two) — one equals 20 bobby pins — then smooth over hard-to-tame flyaways with hair spray. I love the So Sexy hair spray from Victoria's Secret. It smells heavenly and has great hold.

Fake Great Skin: Don't bother layering on the foundation, bronzer, and blush; your skin will just look tired and cakey. The solution: tinted bronzing gel, applied over your face and neck after your morning shower for an instant outer glow — even if you don't feel one on the inside.

Perk up your pout:Apply a lip plumper before lipstick/lipgloss. This will give your lips a nice primer before putting on your lipstick or gloss.

Add some sparkle: Luminous highlighters and concealers are simple to use and give your face a fresh look. Adding silver or gold sparkly eyeliner to the corners of the eyes will also give your eyes a bright pick me up.

With Love From the West Coast,
