Never have enough time to get ready in the morning? Running late? Don’t fret! These fast, easy ways to look put together will help you become polished in minutes.

Start in the Shower

Use an in-shower moisturizer to save yourself some time.  The shower is really the best place to moisturize, since the steam and warmth aid your pores in absorbing the moisturizing ingredients. Apply it from the neck down– but be careful of slippery feet!

Cleanse and condition at the same time! Cleansing conditioners are perfect for a quick wash in a rush. The best news? Cleansing conditioners are sulfate-free and hair color friendly! They are also personalized for many hair types and will help speed up your hair-care routine.

Master the 5-Minute Makeup Routine

To better define your eyes, fill in your eyebrows with a brow pencil, or use a colored brow mascara to save even more time. To brighten up your face, add concealer to dark areas and redness, or use a BB cream that targets numerous spots at once!

To give the illusion of spending lots of time on your makeup, wear a bold lipstick color. Bold lips detract attention from other areas of the face. Add some mascara and you’re ready to tackle the day!

Hair Care

What’s better than a messy bun? Try this elegant 2-minute style, especially on second-day hair! If you’d rather skip out on styling your hair, ask your hairdresser for a low maintenance cut for everyday convenience.

The 2/3 Rule

Life is all about balance, and the 2/3 Rule is no exception. If you’re having a bad hair day, make sure your makeup and outfit look good. If you have no time for your makeup, put time into styling your hair and wear a chic outfit to balance out the look. It’s that easy to look put together!

Capsule Closet

A capsule wardrobe is a small collection of minimalistic, yet versatile pieces that you can easily mix and match! Blogger Caroline Rector invented the idea when she experimented with only 37 pieces that she wore for three months. A capsule wardrobe matches itself so you’ll never have to worry about your outfit again!

Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize

Add boldness to a bland look with any of these fashionable accessories. Pair them with timeless pieces from your capsule wardrobe for a pop of color.
