Who doesn't want to look like they spent hours on their look without actually having spent hours? But putting on a full face of makeup, especially in the mornings, is extremely tiresome. Plus, all that makeup can never be too kind on the skin, making it an extremely bad idea for everyday use.

Too much makeup can prevent the skin from breathing and cause breakouts. It is often difficult to catch a good night's sleep, what with the immense workload and technology taking over our lives, which could in fact contribute to further dark circles.

Lip And Cheek Stain: Multipurpose products are the best things that could ever happen to those of us who are in a rush. These add a pop of colour to the otherwise dull and tired faces. Similarly, you can also use a normal bright pink lipstick as both a blush and a lip stain.

Brows: This step can be skipped, of course. It depends on how much importance you give to your brows. Filled in brows can make a huge impact on the entire face.
