We all have those days when we're running late and simply don't have time for nonsense. Even when running late, it does not mean we can't look glorious.
...Maybe so, Demi. Thankfully I've got these quick tricks to help you get ready in a flash.
1. Take a shower.
Just don't wash your hair! Showering is not what takes forever. It's the after process of drying and styling hair. The shower will wake you up, and get your blood pumping, but you won't fall any further behind.
2. Dry Shampoo.
Spray some on your roots with your head flipped over, run your hands through it to fluff it up and voila! Now technically you've taken a full shower, because your hair appears clean again, right? Right.
3. Use a tinted moisturizer.
You may not have enough time to put on a full face, but a slightly tinted moisturizer gives you a little color, evens out those imperfections, and makes it look like you at least tried.
4. Mascara and Lipstick
You may not think it does a lot, but mascara and lipstick go a LONG way. Wearing mascara draws attention to your eyes- the most prominent feature on your face, and lipstick says you put in a little extra effort. Even if you didn't actually.
5. Have a "go-to" outfit.
Girls are notorious for a full closet of clothing and yet we have nothing to wear. I'm betting however, you have 2 outfits at least you love and always get compliments on when wearing. Keep those two outfits handy just in case you can't find a single article of clothing in that wardrobe of yours.
6. Maxi Clothing
In that half shower you took you didn't have time to shave your legs? That's ok! Throw on a maxi dress or skirt instead with a blazer and I can almost guarantee you'll have people asking all day long why you look so fancy. You'll feel like Beyonce.
7. Breakfast on the go.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This doesn't change simply because you're running late! Have protein bars or shakes ready to grab on your way out the door. Trust me, your body (and anyone you interact with that morning) will thank you.
You may not think it's important to look nice if you're running late. However, it's definitely a thing that if you look better you will feel better. You're more confident and radiate said confidence which brings loads of success to you. Appreciate your natural beauty and take advantage of these tricks, and you'll forever be on time. (Even if running late is your cardio!)
