Having to be at my desk (once I am back at one) at 7am means getting up around 5am. I have to shower, get ready and get out the door as quick as possible, and I don't move that quickly at that hour.
I think the easiest way to look put together in the morning, outside of my mandatory foundation/BB cream, mascara and blush (I refuse to even go to the corner store without blush and mascara) is your brows. Up until about 6 months ago I was clueless on how to do my brows though. One of my closest friends pulled me aside one Saturday and told me, you know you have to color in your whole brow, not just the front... Well since then I have learned a lot and you know, it isn't at all as hard to get your brows right and it is the perfect thing to do when you don't have a lot of time but you want to look all day ready.
So what is my brow routine? I start with brow gel, I am partial to Anastasia's brow gel, which is quite tacky feeling, which I personally like, followed by Anastasia's brow powder duo in dark brown. I use Sephora's brow filler brush which allows me to blend and also create precise lines if needed. It takes about 3 minutes to do my brows. Wham, bam, thank you m'am.
If you don't know where to start, or want to get your brows shaped and maybe have someone do them for you before you started in on them yourself I can recommend The Brow Bar at Completely Bare in NYC, which I have personally been to. In London the go to place seems to be Blink, however I have yet to give them a whirl.
