Even beauty queens have their share of daily beauty dilemmas. In fact, Catriona Gray has to rely on savvy beauty hacks for when she doesn't have time to deal with chapped lips and greasy hair. Here are some of them:
1. Use micellar water before doing your makeup.
Catriona recommends micellar water as a good alternative to toner in this video. It’s the easiest way to cleanse the face. Plus, you can still use the same product to remove makeup. That's like getting a 2-in-1 goodie for your routine.
2. There’s concealer if you don’t have time for foundation.
When she’s in a rush and can’t do her own makeup, Catriona grabs the concealer and dabs it on spots that need the most help—usually under the eyes, around the nose, and on the chin. Then she blends it out for a natural-looking finish.
3. Never underestimate the power of an eyelash curler.
Catriona lists the eyelash curler as one of the makeup tools she can’t live without. She says it instantly makes her eyes look awake despite her hectic schedule.
4. Add lip balm to your skincare routine.
Aside from just picking out a lipstick color that suits you, it’s also important to moisturize with a classic lip balm. It helps heal chapped lips and also serves as a smooth lipstick base.
5. Use a lightweight conditioner to keep your hair fresh.
No matter how hectic her day gets, Catriona swears she never skips the conditioner. She uses Cream Silk Hydra Fresh Light Conditioner—a water-based conditioner infused with the power of Hydra Collagen that helps intensely hydrate her hair without weighing it down. It’s easy to rinse, non-greasy, and keeps her hair bouncy throughout the day.
