17 Quick Face Fixes for when You Don't Have Time to Apply Makeup ...

By Lyndsie

Let me begin by adding that this is also a list of quick fixes for anyone who doesn't like to apply a lot of makeup. For the most part, I fall into that category. I don't like to go out without any makeup because I just don't feel confident without a little something, but I rarely have the inclination or the time to do much. Quickly dealing with your problem areas and, even more importantly, always playing up your best features is the way to go. You'll feel awesome as well as comfortable, and you'll look just lovely!
