If you’re running late for class or for your job, do not freak! These Top 17 Beauty Hacks will definitely save your morning from being a total disaster. Don’t worry anymore than you have to, being too stressed can cause wrinkles, and you DON’T need that, honey.
If you want to skip the shampoo, but do not want to leave the house with stringy, greasy bangs, just wash them and them only. Pull back your hair into a ponytail, wet your hands with a small amount of conditioner, run it through your fringe, and rinse it out under the faucet. If you have straight hair, it’s probably not necessary to blow-dry, as they’ll air-dry in minutes. If your hair is a little more unruly, quickly blow-dry and style your bangs as you normally would.
You can still make it to work with gorgeous boho inspired waves, even when you wake up with just enough time to put your clothes on and grab your coffee. How you ask? Prep your hair the night before. Before you go to bed, work texturizing cream, like Bumble and Bumble Hair Texturizing Cream, then make two braids and sleep on it. The next morning remove the braids and run your fingers through your hair and ta-da. You have gorgeous beach style waves.
Save time by using a brown eyeliner pencil like, Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eye Pencil, to line your lashes, fill in your brows and fill in your lids. You could also use Stila’s Lip & Cheek Stain to tint your cheeks and obviously tint your lips. Anything that will help you look more awake in the morning; use it!
Purrfect Cat Eye:
If drawing a cat eye for you, is like recreating the Mona Lisa, this hack will definitely help you. Just make a stencil into the desired shape you want & hold it to your eye while applying the liner. Or, an even simpler method is to just hold a straight edge, like a credit card to your face.
Why spend precious time in the morning moisturizing when you can do it overnight? Try the Origin’s Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. The mask’s avocado and apricot kernel oil will instantly hydrate your skin, while Japanese seaweed will help tighten skin to help prevent future dehydration and aging.
Cleansing Your Face:
There is no doubt about it, we are all addicted to face wipes. How could we not be, especially with Olay Regenerist Micro-Exfoliating Wet Cleansing Cloths, which clean out your pores, removes your makeup and controls the oil on your face while gently exfoliating. Nothing is better.
Speed Up Curling:
Usually you take 20-30 minutes curling your hair in the morning, you know why? You are using two big of sections. Try putting your luscious locks up into a ponytail, then chunking it into smaller pieces and curling it. This hack will give you those beachy, boho curls you’ve been wanting.
BB Cream Has Your Face:
Do not waste anymore time putting on lotion, then some SPF, and THEN your foundation. Just use a BB Cream like, Smashbox’s Camera Ready BB Cream. This formula has emollients and optical pearl pigments to hydrate and reduce the look of fine lines, plus SPF 35 sun protection. BB Cream is a better alternative for the hot days as well, it gives you the coverage you need with a lightweight feeling.
Skip A Wash:
We’ve said it time and time again. Dry shampoo is indeed a girl’s best friend. Don’t be afraid to skip a wash with Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo. This dry shampoo absorbs oils, masks odors and adds volume to unwashed hair. Go ahead, no shame in your game.
Avoid Mascara Clumps:
These clumps can ruin any look and even your glittery eyeshadow you took so much time perfecting. Well don’t let that happen again! All you have to do is roll your mascara brush onto a tissue before applying, but be careful not to wipe too much off, as you would corrupt the mascara’s formula. We don’t have the money to be doing that – am I right?
Sleek Hair Without Tools:
All that extra time you take to straighten your hair could be spent on food. Why not try Vaseline or coconut oil to get rid of flyaways or create that sleek look.
Give Your Hair A Break:
Give your locks a break by letting them air dry. Too much heat from heat tools, such as hairdryers, create breakage and split ends to your hair. You can always twist your hair up into a bun, and later in the day you can take it down, revealing natural looking waves.
Use Leave-In Conditioner:
Instead of taking the extra step in the shower, spray in some leave-in conditioner like, As I Am Leave-In Conditioner. This formula is packed with natural ingredients — like coconut extract, sugar beet root, green tea, and saw palmetto — to help seal cuticles, strengthen hair, add moisture, and allow easy detangling.
Invest In Long Term Hair Removal:
Waxing your bikini area and legs would cut down your morning-routine time drastically. And if you’d rather get rid of it all once and for all, consider electrolysis, which is permanent hair removal.
Depuff Your Eyes, Fast:
Every girl has their own method of depuffing their eyes, whether it’s using cucumber slices or using tea bags. If you’re in a crunch for time, you should try Clinique’s All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage. It goes on cool and uses caffeine, botanicals, and antioxidants to brighten and depuff your skin. The rollerball application is much, much faster than cucumber slices.
Detangle In The Shower:
Instead if detangling after your dry out your hair with a towel, bring a wide toothed comb into the shower. Detangling with conditioner still in your hair will make the process faster and less stressful. This morning beauty hack will surely save your hair!
When you’re in a rush, you can’t spend too much time thinking about your color palette. Just go for neutral tones for your entire face, like tan, taupe, and peach. Chances are they will all go together and save you time, while still looking flawless.
