We all know that heart-stopping moment when you realize you slept through your alarm. It can ruin your entire day if you panic and run out the door looking like you dressed in a hurry. These quick hacks will have you out the door quickly, looking perfectly put together.
Use Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is an indispensable tool in your quick fix beauty tool kit. On those mornings when you give in to the siren’s song of the snooze button one too many times the last thing you have time for is washing and drying your hair. With dry shampoo it takes less than two minutes to spray, brush and style.
Skip Your Contacts
Those mornings when you need to be out the door five minutes ago are perfect for showcasing your eyewear style. It takes no time to slide your glasses on your face, and you automatically look more accessorized and polished. Slip on a stylish pair of prescribed glasses (or maybe a pair of fakes) to save a few minutes in the morning.
Go For Easy Hairstyles
This is the time to pull out one of the tried and true hairstyles that look polished but take no time at all. The high ponytail is great for looking chic and in control. Simply spritz your brush with hairspray before you brush it up for a sleek, shiny ‘do. A low bun is also a great, simple look for the office. It’s as easy as combing your hair into a twist at the nape of your neck and adding a few hair pins.
If you overslept the last thing you have time for is an iron. Throw your clothes in the dryer with a dryer sheet and put them on the air dry cycle. You can now hop in the shower and come out to wrinkle free, fresh smelling clothes.
Maximize Your Makeup
You don’t have to completely skip makeup on days when you are running late. Opt for a look you can pull together in under five minutes. A good BB cream functions as foundation, moisturizer and sunscreen. It takes 20 seconds to apply and gives you a fresh, dewy look. Optimize your time by going for a nearly nude eye and a bright lip. Just blend some concealer into your lid and add mascara. A bright red or pink lip will give the appearance that you are wearing a full face of makeup, and it looks great with your glasses.
