It’s Monday afternoon, and you’re running laps around your school’s track or playing volleyball in the gym — tons of fun, but also tons of sweat. Whether you’re the type to go all in (we’re talking hair up, game on type of vibe) or you prefer to sit on the sidelines with your girls, spending time in a hot gym or in the sun can take your before school glam routine and turn it upside down. Mascara smears, oily skin and dry lips are all too common when you’ve just wrapped up some good exercise, but with the right products and technique, you can clean up in a flash. Gone are the days where you’re stressing to get ready for your next class. With a few of our favorite Petite ‘n Pretty products, we can help you get rid of the extra shine and focus on the glow. After you master this routine, you’ll never stress about the after class rush again.
Step 1: No more sweat!
We don’t have much time, so let’s skip the cleanser and moisturizer for when we get home. Grab your Glow Nowhere Oil Blotting Sheets and pat the papers over the oily spots of your face to pick up any excess oil. Instantly, your face will be perfectly matte and looking fresher than ever.
Pro tip: Keep these bad boys handy at all times to grab when you’re feeling a bit slick!
Also, don’t forget to freshen up a bit with your Petite ‘n Pretty natural deodorant! It gets rid of the B.O. without any of the chemicals found in a traditional deodorant, so you can feel citrusy-y fresh and confident all day long.
Step 2: Eyes, Lips Face
Just because you’re short on time doesn’t mean you can’t get a gorgeous glow! Grab the glow and go with the Glow Up All Over Stick! It’s created in 4 beautiful shades, so find one that works best for your skin tone. Swipe the stick all over your cheeks and melt the product into your skin with your fingers for a quick blush and highlight combo.
What makes this product the ultimate on-the-go gem is its versatility. Not only does it work as your blush and highlight, but it can also double-up as your eye and lip color! You’ll save tons of time and space in your makeup bag or backpack and can jet-set to your next class in no time! Just swipe a little bit of your stick (consider using two or three different shades for a bit of fun) on your eyelids and lips, and blend it out with your fingers. It gives a lightweight, ultra-blendable amount of sparkle that’s perfect for a simple school look.
If you’ve got to dash, now is your time. However, if you have a few moments, we can take this look just a bit further. You can never go wrong with a bit of extra glitter, so grab the 10K Shine Lip Gloss in your favorite shade for all the soft, non-sticky feels in one swipe. Add a bit of the Cloud Mine fragrance rollerball onto your body’s pulse points (neck wrists and inner elbows), and you’re all set!
That’s it! Now that you’re feeling fresh and clean, it’s time to head to class. Taking care of your body inside and out is essential to looking and feeling your best, and adding a quick refresh into your routine can make a huge difference in how you feel during the day. Follow these steps, and you’ll be ready to take on the world, one test or essay at a time!
P.S. You can also use this routine for your after-school activities (any dancers or soccer players in the room?) or whenever you need a quick refresh!
