20 Make Up Tips for Women on the Go

Wouldn’t it be awesome if all of us had an hour, each day, to do our makeup? Unfortunately, in the real world, if we’re not running late for class or work, we’re trying to run 90 million errands before noon. This means that unless it’s a super special occasion, a full face of makeup is really low on the priority list.

That’s not to say that there aren’t a few things that can be done in 10 minutes (give or take five). It’s all about knowing what works and more importantly, what you’re willing to put a little time and effort into.
