It’s always when you’re five minutes late to work, or worse, when you’re already at work on a bathroom break and notice a major beauty blunder. Runny eye makeup and greasy hair? We’re all subject to the occasional mishap!
While it’s inevitable mother nature and makeup may always be at war, we’ve rounded up a list of beauty hacks to live by when you only have seconds to spare!
You popped a pimple before running out the door…
After you’ve finished popping a pimple you may notice a bit of redness in the spot. Pick up a spot treatment like Thayers Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel with Organic Aloe Vera Formula Toner, which by the way, has a 5-star rating from Influenster reviews. Witch hazel (the trusty ingredient in the toner) works wonders on acne spots and can give you instant results when trying to reduce redness!

Your lashes are clumpy…
Having a clear mascara in your purse is always a good idea. Brush out the buildup so you won’t run the risk of adding more product and making your lashes clumpy. If you’d rather use your own colored mascara wand, slide the product off and buff out your lashes from there. The CoverGirl Professional Natural Lash Clear Mascara is a favorite among Influensters not only for natural looking lashes, but also for getting rid of clumps AND keeping eyebrows in place – talk about mutli-purpose!

It’s too humid for your foundation to hold…
When you notice that end-of-the day shine lingering on your forehead, dab YSL Touche Touche Éclat Blur Perfector on the spot. It instantly mattifies the skin even in the deepest of humidity. This primer is a VoxBox favorite for on-the-go touch ups!

Your lipstick is bleeding…
When your favorite fall lipstick starts bleeding into the skin around your mouth, snag some chapstick from your purse. Use it to draw an invisible barrier around your mouth if you notice the color creeping out. This should sweep up the excess product and prevent it from increasing out any further! The softlips cube is a fan favorite from past VoxBoxes for it’s portability and amazing scent!

You over conditioned your hair…
Dry shampoo should do the trick. It absorbs up any extra grease lingering in your strands. We recommend Batiste, an Influenster favorite that instantly makes your hair feel clean, fresh, and full of body and texture.

Your clothes are wrinkled…
If you have zero time to iron or steam your garment, quickly heat up your straightener at medium heat. Hold the wrinkled part of your outfit out while you run the straightener over it.
