Dry shampoo is your BFF

Need to wash your hair every morning to keep it bouncy and sparkling? Who has the time to shampoo and blow dry when you have a tight schedule? Here comes the dry shampoo, our knight in shining powdery armour. The key is to apply the formula the night before. Doing that allows the excess oil in your hair to absorb overnight. Plus, all that tossing and turning you do in your sleep with add some serious body to your locks.

All about beauty in your sleep


Who has the time to slather on countless face creams and serums when you have a deadline to meet? Think about the eight hours you spend asleep. So why not use that stress-free, uninterrupted time lathering on lotions and potions you wouldn’t have time for in the morning? Another bonus: That’s also the time your skin works overtime to repair itself by increasing cell turnover, making it the perfect time to apply a lotion or mask. Choose an overnight cream or mask that aids this repair process so that you wake up to happy, refreshed skin. Perfect!

Replace your foundation with a concealer

Instead of spending precious minutes applying and blending foundation, fake a full coverage look by simply applying the right concealer in all the right places. Choose a lightweight, hydrating concealer that melts into your skin, instead of sitting unnaturally on top of it. Start by applying concealer under your eyes, around your nose and chin, and on any blemishes. Applying concealer on just these areas brightens and softens the entire face to create the illusion of a full face of foundation. Dab your compact to set it and you are good to go!

Choose products you can apply with your fingers


Ditch fiddly makeup brushes and sponge and all that swirl and tap business. Instead opt for cream-based products and use your fingers to apply instead. It may just cut down on seconds, but every second counts when you’re in a mad rush. Besides, cream blushes and eye shadows offer a more natural, day-appropriate finish than powdery formulas.

Red set go

You overslept and hardly have any minute to spare. Say hello to lipstick, your best last-minute friend. Simply swipe on the happiest red you own instead of an entire face of makeup. You’ll instantly feel confident and look put together and wide awake. Talk about a win-win!

Hair on the go


Have three really quick hairstyles on the ready that you know look good on you no matter what the state of your tresses. Practice them beforehand so you know you can do them with your eyes closed. Our go-to trio includes a braid, a top knot, and a sleek low ponytail. With this, you’ll always look put together, bad hair day or not.

With these tips, there’s no stopping you. You go girl!
