3 Time-Saving Tips to Enhance Your Morning Glam Routine
As women, we know that looking flawless isn’t always a quick five-minute process, especially in the mornings. In fact, almost 40 percent of women take more than 30 minutes getting ready in the morning, which adds up to approximately eight full days of getting ready per year. Choosing an outfit for the day, doing a full face of makeup and deciding on the perfect hairstyle are just a few of the things women have to think about when getting ready for the day.
The good news is that you can still look amazing without spending hours getting ready every day. Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can spend less time getting ready, and more time looking fabulous.
As you very well know, planning your outfit takes time and effort. And once you’ve picked out your clothes, you still have to choose the perfect pair of shoes and accessories to go with it. Picking out your outfit can be a nightmare, especially if you have to rummage through your closet half-asleep in the morning. But planning out your entire outfit the night before and setting it by your bed will definitely save you some time in the morning — and may even step up your outfit game. Ironing may be another reason you’re running late in the morning, so if you choose an outfit that requires ironing, save time by doing it the night before and laying out your clothes so they’re ready to go in the morning. If you want to save even more time, showering the night before can save you an extra 15-20 mins.
Be More Efficient
For most women, makeup is typically what takes the longest to do. Of course, you don’t need a full face of makeup for daytime or everyday wear, but you can still find some great looks that can save you half of the time. With all of the beauty vloggers and social media influencers online, there are tons of how-to videos out there for easy 5-minute makeup routines. After all, less is more.
You can cut your makeup routine down even further by nixing your eye makeup altogether and opting for eyelash extensions instead. You can have bold, beautiful lashes without adding any time to your everyday routine. When you have the right eyelash extension supplies, you can easily achieve a glamorous look without having to spend a ton of time on your makeup — all you’ll need to add is some foundation and maybe a little lipstick, and you’ll be ready to hit the town or the office.
Simplify Your Hair Routine
Another way to cut your daily routine in half is to simplify your hair care regimen. Instead of spending hours washing, drying and styling your hair in the morning, you can integrate some of the following:
- Wash and dry your hair the night before
- Braid your hair before you go to sleep to wake up with soft, loose curls
- Use dry shampoo to avoid having to wash your hair
- Accessorize with headbands and other unique hair pieces
These are just a few of the ways your hair can save some time in the morning. And if all else fails, you can always just throw your hair up in a sleek bun for an effortless look.
If you want to look fabulous every single day without adding a lot of time to your routine, then follow these three steps. Cutting down your morning beauty ritual will not only save you time getting ready, but you may even get to catch some extra beauty rest, too.
