Shoot! It's 8:00a.m. and you have exactly 30 minutes to get to work! How do you get ready in less than 10 minutes, pop out the door and commute to your destination in 20 minutes?
1. Have your emergency outfits ready! You know the feeling of being rushed, so don't bother rampaging through your closet and try to choose an outfit. Instead, pick out two outfits in the evening and have them ready. If in doubt, go all black along with a statement accessory.
2. Put your double duty beauty products to use. Rinse your face with cool water to wake yourself up. Apply a tinted moisturizer with coverage and SPF. Use a cream brush that works for both cheeks and lips. Finally, take 10 seconds to curl your lashes and swipe on 2 coats of volumizing mascara.
3. Know your updos. Unless you wake up with perfect hair you'll want to hide the mess in a topknot, ponytail or bun. If you have greasy hair spritz on some dry shampoo and you're good to go.
4. Eat on the go. Trust me I hate eating while walking but skipping breakfast is never a good start. Stock up on a few granola bar and fruits that's travel-friendly! When you're in a rush grab and go.
Lastly, take a deep breath and prepare yourself for the day. Don't let one mistake turn your day into an upside down smile.
I sometimes wear my outfit for next day and sleep. Then, all I have to do just walk out of house and when my eyes open.
I thought the obvious tip would have been to have a pair of tights or hose handy to save that shaving time for something else.
No matter how late you are, don't forget to arrive in grace!
Oh, I agree with knowing your updos. It saved my second-day hair plenty of times.
@ModernRomance A yogurt parfait would also be my choice of on-the-go breakfast.
