Beauty blogger Wengie made a video guide to getting ready for school in five minutes when you’re running late. She starts with using a concealer as both a highlighter and foundation, applying it to her t-zone and chin. Wengie then quickly blends it all in with a buffing brush, paying special attention to the edges rather than the middle area.
Wengie’s next tip is applying your eyeliner and then using the same liner as eye shadow. She extends her eyeliner out a bit, noting that it doesn’t matter if it’s a bit messy because you will then go back with your fingers or a fluffy brush and blend it. This blending will give the appearance of a seductive, smoky finish. After that, simply use an eyelash curler and mascara to make your eyes appear larger. For more contour on the face, use a bronzer as blush just under the cheekbones, and then blend. For the lips, dabbing the bottom lip with a darker shade of gloss than the top lip for an “ombre effect” is a quick and effective beauty hack.
Since you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to wash your hair, it’s best to tie it up or quickly use a straightening iron. Before using the iron, Wengie recommends treating the hair with a heat protection spray. For your school outfit, a simple monochrome outfit is good, paired with fun accessories like bangle jewelry and a pair of Dr. Martens or Vans sneakers. She was able to achieve a practical, yet chic, school look in under five minutes for the video.
