Lazy girl beauty: Tweak your morning routine in 4 ways to get out the door faster
If you count the snooze button as one of your best friends in the early hours of the a.m., you aren't alone. All too often we have found ourselves mid-makeup application with sopping wet hair and only a few minutes to spare before we need to jet out the door. That's why we've created a beauty cheat sheet for you-now you can spend less time primping and more time catching those coveted zzz's.
Begin your beauty routine the night before.
Moisturizer is a must for maintaining that fresh, dewy look in the dead of winter, but it can also add minutes to your getting-gorgeous process. Before crawling into bed at night, slather on an ultra-hydrating overnight mask, like GlamGlow THIRSTYMUD Hydrating Treatment. That way, you can skip out on your moisturizer in the morning and not feel guilty about it!
Woke up a little later than you planned? Don't forgo your shower for dry shampoo and extra deodorant just yet-there are a whole slew of new products that can cut your shower time in half. Ditch your shampoo-rinse-condition-rinse routine for a one-step cleansing crème like Purely Perfect Cleansing Crème. Then nix your scrub for a creamy, hydrating wash that will leave skin moisturized so you can skip out on post-shower body lotion.
Rather than dashing out the door with wet hair, run Goody QuikStyle Paddle Brush through it. Its bristles are coated with towel-like fibers so that they slurp up moisture with every stroke. Follow that by wrapping strands in an H20-absorbing microfiber towel while you apply your makeup. Consider unnecessary heat damage avoided.
Make the most of your makeup.
For lazy girls, nothing beats a lip-and-cheek duo. Why? A little color on the face can make you look like you've made an effort, even when you haven't. And as an added bonus (as if you need another): Throw the little multi-tasker in your bag and you've got blush backup all day long. Now pucker up!
