These Are the Makeup Steps You Can Ditch When You're Running Late for School
Don't we all love watching beauty gurus do their makeup? It's fun, relaxing, and totally satisfying to go through tons of tutorials and maybe even try some of them out! But sometimes, it crosses (and boggles) our mind just how many steps there are to a single beauty look! And let's face it—with a college girl schedule—a 15-step makeup routine isn't exactly doable nor is it practical (Hello, 8AM class)! The good news is, you don't really have to do all the makeup steps in one routine to look ~amazing~. Below, we're listing down some of the makeup steps that are fun to do, but you can skip on days when you're running late.
Baking is when you pack on the loose powder onto areas of your face you want to illuminate and wait for it to settle in before you brush the excess powder off. While this makeup trick is perfect for special occasions, the thick coverage can turn cakey when you sweat. So save fifteen minutes of your morning routine and skip this step when you do your everyday makeup.
Some people swear on primers to give their skin a smooth, poreless finish before applying their foundation or concealer. While priming does have its perks like enhancing your beauty look and helping your makeup stay longer, your trusty foundation, concealer, and even BB creams are enough to help you hide your pores and cover up blemishes in just one go!
Setting your makeup at the end of your routine with a quick swipe of powder is commonly done, and doesn't take a lot of time too! But some people prefer to use setting sprays to really seal in the makeup. Although they're handy and useful, setting sprays at the end of the routine aren't mandatory. Think of them as the equivalent of hydrating water sprays—they're a cool thing to have, but you can keep them for occasions that will need you on your feet from day to night.
Contouring requires mad skills to get it done and while we do love ourselves a fierce Kardashian-inspired contour from time to time, this step is really easy to mess up and would take a lot of time to fix if you do. If you'd like to add more definition on your face, opt for a quick highlighter instead! Highlighting your face will give it a glowy finish and the best part is that it's close to impossible to mess it up!
Although coloring in your pout with a lip liner will help your lipstick stay in place, it takes up more time and can also dry your lips in the process. While lip liners may be needed for darker or more vibrant colors to help the colors stay in place, it’s totally fine to skip the lip liner for your everyday colors such as nude shades and muted pinks.
Although beauty gurus around the world use a light dusting of bronzer all over their faces to warm up their complexions, this step is something you can definitely skip! One of the perks of living in a tropical country is having naturally sun-kissed skin after all.
Foundation is such a mainstay in makeup that we bet you had to do a double take when you saw this on the list! Although foundation offers a good base, a concealer that matches your skin tone well will do the trick. With the no-makeup makeup trend coming back stronger than ever, the idea is to minimize what you put on your face to enhance your features. Instead of covering your entire face, concentrate on covering problem areas or spots only. This will ensure a flawless and natural-looking base that everyone loves!

Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
