How many times so far have you slept through the alarm clock? Since we all sometimes stay up all night writing the reports or go out for a drink from time to time, we’re sure you’ve been late for work at least once in your career. Although you might find an excellent excuse for not showing up on time, you cannot have one for looking too sloppy. By following these simple hacks, every woman can look gorgeous in no time.
Take a glass of water on the empty stomach
The truth is that our beauty isn’t affected only by the ways we take care of our bodies from the outside, but how we treat them from the inside, too. Whether you’re late or not, taking a glass of water is the first thing you should do in the morning. Apart from the fact that it’ll keep your body hydrated, it’ll also provide you with many health and beauty benefits. When drinking water on an empty stomach, you trigger the number of processes whose task is to clean your body from the toxins that piled up during the night. Eventually, you’ll have fresh, hydrated and glowing skin.
Get dressed in no time
No matter where you’re heading, getting dressed in no time can be a rather stressful experience. But, it doesn’t have to be. Since you’re in hurry you can’t experiment much in front of the mirror when choosing a proper outfit. Instead, simply wear something you have worn before and that has proven to look great on you. Perk up your old outfit with a belt, a scarf or a piece of jewelry and you’ll look gorgeous! On the other hand, a little black dress is always an excellent choice. Not only can you put it on in a second, but you don’t have to worry about matching it with other pieces of clothing. Plus, black is the color you can’t go wrong with. It’s classic, professional and, above all, glamorous.
Save some time with multitasking beauty products
Understandably, when being late, you don’t have time to follow your usual beauty routine. However, due to multitasking beauty products which, as their name suggests, perform more than one purpose, you’ll be able to skip a few steps without actually doing so. For instance, give a try to a tinted moisturizer. It’ll hydrate your skin, provide it with sun protection and even out its tone. And voila! Instead of three, you’ll have to apply only one single product. Since there’re many such products available, the choice is only up to you.
Stick to the basics
Even though you don’t have hours for doing full makeup look, it doesn’t have to mean you should leave your house without wearing any either. By sticking to the basics, you can beautify your face in record time. So, forget about contouring and go for minimal makeup including a tinted moisturizer we’ve already discussed above, a little bit of mascara and a nude lip gloss. In case you need more effective look, touch it up with bolder color lipstick and quality false eyelashes and you’ll look gorgeous in no time with minimal effort.
Take control over your hair
If you want to get ready to leave your house in the nick of time, sometimes you have to skip
washing your hair. Because let’s be fair, hair styling is the part of beauty routine that takes most of its time. As greasy hair doesn’t look flattering at all, consider using a dry shampoo. All you have to do is simply apply a little bit of dry shampoo and gently blend it in. In case you don’t have a dry shampoo at hand, you can use a baby powder as its alternative. Just massage a little bit of baby powder and let it absorb the oil. Otherwise, you can always braid your hair or put it up in a bun.
It’s in our nature to panic when we’re in rush. Which only worsens our situation. Therefore, it’s important to keep a cool head. Just breathe! You’ll manage to get at your destination in time only if you take step by step.
As you can see, it doesn’t take much time to look gorgeous. So, next time you’re running late, take a deep breath and start following these easy tips.
