Mornings are the worst! I don’t know of a single person that actually looks forward to the sound of their alarm going off (unless it’s like Christmas or something). However, the only thing WORSE than your alarm going off are those moments where it DOESN’T go off. If you forgot to set your alarm, or simply didn’t hear it go off, here are a few beauty hacks that will get you out the door in record time!
#1: When getting ready fast, pick a foundation that has a BB creme included. When you pick one that works for your skin tone. With the added moisturizer, you’ll eliminate several other steps throughout your face routine.
#2: Keep your eyeshadow simple! Use a pallet with neutral colors all within the same palette. You’ll never have to experiment with your eyeshadow again! With a go-to palette, you can get out the door, in no time at all.
#3: Use only one hair product! Applying a conditioner, a hair mask, and then a hair oil can take way too much time when you are on a crunch in the morning. Pick one hair product that does all of these things! I recommend the Alterna CC Cream.
#4: Of course, beauty experts always recommend that you use one product on your face, eyes and lips. Cosmo recommends using Nars The Multiple when using the same product. Use your finger to apply them evenly on your face, eyes, and lips.
#5: Backtracking a little bit, save time in the shower by using a two-in-one shampoo and conditioner. You’ll only have to rinse once!
#6: If possible, use an in-shower moisturizer. Use the Olay Ultra In-Shower body lotion to give your skin the drink it needs, while adhering to your busy schedule. The lotion is fast-absorbing, so your skin will stay soft even after you dry off!
#7: Looking for an easy way to look more awake and ready? It’s easy! All you have to do is curl your eyelashes, apply some mascara, and get out the door. Even just applying mascara will make you look SO much more awake and ready for the day.
#8: Red and watery eyes can make you look WAY tired that you really are. Contrast the red by quickly lining your eyes with a blue or navy toned liner. Naturally, it’s recommended that you stay away from red or brown based liners because these can make the problem look even worse!
#9: If you already know you’re going to be crunched for time tomorrow morning, braid your damp hair the night before. When you wake up, blow dry your hair to set the waves, and go about your day. They look effortlessly fantastic, and they pretty much were!
#10: Really worried about time? Skip the makeup! Except for the red lipstick anyway. Red lips will make you instantly classy, and draw the attention to your mouth!
