10 Super Easy Ways to Speed Up Your Beauty Routine



As someone who gives herself no more than 15 minutes to get out of bed and out the door on most mornings, I've learned a thing or two about putting together a time-optimized beauty routine. Here are 10 things to consider to help speed up your beauty routine.

  1. Do your hair the night before and get a haircut that requires minimal maintenance.

  2. Extend the time between blowouts by soaking up excess oil with dry shampoo.

  3. Use multitasking products; for example, a foundation formulated with SPF or a balm that doubles as a lip treatment and blush.

  4. Make sure that all of the products you use in the shower — whether it be body wash, body scrub, razor or something else — have built-in moisturizers.

  5. Opt for a facial mist if you don't have time to cleanse (your face doesn't tend to get dirty while you sleep) — they're easy to apply and a quick way to revive tired skin.

  6. Get a brow and/or lash tint.

  7. Keep the makeup products you use to a minimum by going bold with one area, like a strong crimson lip or a heavily-lined eye.

  8. Keep your skincare, makeup and tools organized, so you're not scrambling to find anything.

  9. Opt for natural-toned eye shades that don't contrast too much with your skin tone, so you can apply your shadows a bit more haphazardly.

  10. Use a buffing block instead of nail polish.
