Before you say it, let us. You're busy, and you don't have the luxury of spending hours on beauty routines. You're always on the move, juggling work, school, family, friends, social obligations......and the list never ends, does it? So what does that mean exactly? That your busy schedule should keep you from indulging in self and skincare? Well, we vehemently disagree with that. What you need instead, is a form of self-care, that is effective, effortless and most importantly, quick!
So to help make this happen, our beauty experts have enlisted 5 beauty hacks that work like magic, but don't take more than 2 minutes!
1. Help That Nail Polish Set By Dipping Your Fingers In Cold Water
The biggest peril in applying nail polish isn't the process of putting it, but rather, the process of drying it so you can get back to business. Well, the next time you apply a coat, just dip your fingers in ice-cold water for a minute or two. Freshly done nails, ready in a jiffy!

2. Make Your Own CC Cream
Take a few drops of your regular wear concealer, and mix it into a dollop of your trusted moisturiser. You now have some CC cream at your dispense, that won't make your face feel like its weighed down by a layer of products.

4. Use Tape For The Perfect Winged Eyes
If we girls were to be honest, the longest part of our morning make-up routine is perfecting our winged eyeliner for equal symmetry. A quick solution is to use a piece of tape or a credit card as a stencil for outlining the shape of the wings on your eyes. Uneven eyeliner, what's that?
