In a Rush? Try These Beauty Tips for Busy Mornings ...

If you need some beauty tips for rushed mornings, you have come to the right place. I have three kids and my mornings are always a beeline to the front door so we can get to school on time. That means that over the years, I’ve learned some things that allow me to look human while not being late every day. Of course, I always love finding new things that work too. So, here are some great beauty tips for rushed mornings that I think will help you out. Don’t be afraid to share yours too.

1. Make a Plan

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Knowing what you plan to do is one of the best beauty tips for rushed mornings. Plan what make-up you want to wear and how you want to style your hair. That way you can get right to it when you wake up instead of having to waste time trying to decide what you want to do.

2. Do More than One Thing at a Time

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Women are the queens of multitasking, right? Go ahead and do the same when you employ your morning beauty routine. Try doing one thing while you wait for another thing to be finished. For example, put your make-up on while your hot rollers cool off. Or, brush your teeth while you wait for your face cream to set before applying make-up. Getting two things done at once can really get you out the door a lot faster.

3. Skip All the Extras

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you need to be out the door in minutes flat, consider skipping all the extra stuff and just going for the basics. That means not putting on an entirely full face of make-up or going all out with your hair. Instead, use just what you need to feel fabulous and forget all the rest. For me that’s foundation and eyeliner. With a bit or eyeshadow, bronzer and mascara, no one can tell the difference anyway.

4. Choose an Easy Hairstyle

If you’re really in a hurry, a long elaborate hairstyle just isn’t going to work. That doesn’t mean you can’t still look great though. A loose side braid or slightly mussed bun still look like you care, but only take a minute or two to put together. Add a cute barrette or small silk flower and you’re all set.

5. Take Some with You

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you carpool or take the bus to work, take part of your beauty routine on the road. You can easily and quickly apply mascara or blush while you ride. Lipstick or gloss and a quick brush to your hair also work on the go. I would not recommend brushing your teeth or wearing curlers though. People will look at you funny.

6. Two for One Products

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Products that do double duty can really be a lifesaver when you didn’t hear the alarm or you’re moving slowly. Being able to use one product for eyes, cheeks and lips streamlines your entire beauty routine and makes you ready to face the world in a very short amount of time.

7. Clear Polish

(Your reaction) Thank you!

I don’t know about you, but I paint my nails at night because I don’t have time in the morning. I know some women do though, for the just polished shine that makes nails stand out. If you can’t swing it, but don’t want bare nails, slick on a coat of clear with a bit of glitter. You’ll get shine with only a couple minutes of drying time.
