The Ultimate Lazy Girl Routine
We all want to look and feel amazing as we walk out the door in the morning, ready to take on the world, right? Unfortunately, however, some of us don't have the luxury of time or, if we're being honest...the motivation.
Some of us would instead hit snooze six times before we roll out of bed, resembling the creature from the deep, and then sip our coffee a moment longer as the caffeine brings life to our soul.
Whichever one you are, this guide is for you. Look and feel fab without spending hours achieving that effortless look. Be the girl who gets ready in 5 minutes and is still the envy of the room when she walks in, looking like she spent several hours on her appearance. Ready, set, go!
Prep your skin
The key to flawless skin starts with your skincare. Makeup only looks as good as the base it's applied on. So ensure you cleanse and exfoliate to eliminate any excess dry skin or oiliness from the night before to create the perfect foundation for your look. The Quick Flick's cleanser will give you a jump start to your day. It removes any leftover makeup, dirt, or dead skin cells and hydrates your skin, leaving it nourished and ready to take on the day.
Apply moisturiser & SPF
When your skin is hydrated, it can absorb products better and allow them to stay in place a lot longer. It will keep your skin looking and feeling fresh all day and help to maintain that dewy look. A top trick for the essential lazy girl routine is using a moisturiser containing SPF to ensure you're looking after your skin and looking good! Be sure to choose a product that matches your skin type and always include your neck and decolletage for optimal hydration and glow.

A concealer is a fantastic tool for hiding imperfections, and you can also use it to enhance your features. Always apply it underneath your eyes to hide any traces of those late nights or restless periods of sleep and blend in an outwards motion ensuring you use only a thin layer. Do the same to vanish any dark spots or pesky breakouts stopping you from looking your best.
Even out your skin tone and blend in your concealer by applying loose powder. Use sweeping motions over your face and neck. Concentrate on the center of your face, and be sure to buff it in so you aren't left with any lines but instead end up with a gorgeous velvety finish.
Define your eyes
Defining your eyes is an essential step in your routine as it can make or break your look. Your eyes are the centre and focus of your face. So let's make them stand out! The absolute must-have for the time-poor or the rush out the door kind of girl is an eyeliner stamp! The Quick Flick's eyeliner stamp is the foolproof way of defining your eyes without the mess and hassle of a standard eyeliner. Finish it off with a bold mascara, or add some bold lashes, and you're almost ready to power out your day!
Finish off your lazy girl look with a fun gloss to enhance and present your perfect pout. Choose a good quality product that nourishes and protects while still giving you that dewy glow. Add a fun pop of colour if you're feeling frisky, and it will bring an essence of personality to your finished look!
Now you should be ready to take on whatever life throws at you—looking good, feeling good, and ready to kick some ass!
