Celebrity makeup artist shows how to slim down your beauty routine

Let’s face it ladies, getting ready in the morning, whether it’s putting on makeup or doing our hair, isn’t always so glamorous. It can be messy, time-consuming and unorganized. A recent survey found that women spend an average of 55 minutes each morning on their appearance or a total of 6.4 hours each week, while men spend a total of 4.5 hours a week getting ready!

As 2016 begins, many of us are making New Year’s resolutions to be more organized, but how can we keep those resolutions and make them a part of our everyday life? Lifestyle expert and creator of the Dollup Beauty clutch Nikki Hynek shows Amber how we can simplify our morning routines in just a few simple steps!
