Who has time to spend hours in front of the mirror every morning putting on makeup, styling hair and figuring out what to wear? Your morning routine shouldn't slow you down. Sleep in a little longer and use these time-saving tips to start your day right.
Prep Your Hair the Night Before
Washing, blow-drying and styling your hair every morning can take a lot of time and effort. Save precious morning time by doing it the night before. Depending on the look you're going for, you can put your hair in braids, buns, tucks or twirls before going to bed. When you wake up, you can expect a little extra volume and loose, heat-free waves.
Use Multitasking Makeup and Play Up One Feature
Many products on the market today are multifunctional. Products like BB and CC creams are intended to moisturize and prime your skin while providing light coverage and sun protection in one quick step. It's better to focus on one feature, like your eyes, and take your time than to do a full makeup application in a hurry. And besides, bold lips look stunning with natural eyes and vice versa.
Plan Your Outfit
Decide what you want to wear the night before and lay everything out. Include your undergarments, shoes and accessories. Iron or steam any items that have wrinkles. If you plan to get a sweat session in right after work, get your gym bag ready. Pack your workout clothes and shoes, and don't forget a water bottle, gym towel and hair elastic. Make it easy to just grab it and go.
