My Time-Saving Beauty Tips & Tricks

As much as I hate to admit it, being fashionably late isn't all that fashionable.  Over the years I've had to train myself - ahem - force myself to adopt some of the time-saving beauty practices in this post.  Not because I'm a low-maintenance girl as far as my beauty routine goes. Haha, ohhh no. It's because one of my worst habits is being chronically late - to everything.  More recently I realized I don't need to ponder EVERY lipstick in my collection before choosing one to wear that day and I've been doing much better with making my appointments and other commitments on time. Hopefully a few of these tips and helpful products may keep you from the dreaded mascara-application-in-the-rearview-mirror epidemic as well!

Products Mentioned in Video:

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes
(Even though they also remove makeup, I use these for cleansing my face in the AM. I find that helpful in case I've missed a spot while removing my makeup the night before)

Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer in Sand

NARS Pressed Powder in Beach

Benefit Hello Flawless Custom Powder Cover-Up in "Petal"

    Thank you Alli :-)

  2. Hey Alli! I just discovered your beauty channel and blog and I have been loving viewing all your videos and posts! You have a great personality and really useful tips! I find the best way for me to save time in the morning is to plan out my outfit the night before. I saves me so much time. I will be following your blog and I look forward to more posts:)

  3. Hey! I saw your video "Pink & Gold Summer Makeup" on rassian site about make up...and I am your follower now. You are pretty.
    Where are you from?

  4. Alli - I noticed that Kat Von D has changed the name of her concealers from names to numbers. Do you know the number for sand?
