How To Look Like You’re Gonna Get Through The Day Even When You Haven't Showered
By Alex Lerner
Okay ladies, we all have those mornings where we are already too fed up with the day to give a damn about what we look like. Where those extra few minutes hitting the snooze are worth skipping your usual morning ritual of painting your face. For those instances where you are willing to skip the shower and just get up and take on the day, here are the essentials for getting through the day looking slightly human.
Organic Coconut Oil
To vegans and beauty editors alike, coconut oil is a must in any beauty routine. It works as a makeup remover, moisturizer, lip balm, and dab a little on your lids and it'll give your eyes a dewy look. This one product can shed minutes off your routine.
Price: $7 - $10
This is my go to dry shampoo. As someone with an oilier set of locks, this quick fix is super absorbent and adds instant volume to your hair. I have used baby powder at music festivals, instantly refluff hair for a night out and looking presentable the day after
Priced: $2 - 4 bucks
Lash Curler and Mascara
Lifting your lashes instantly makes you look more refreshed and ready to take on the day. Add a coat of mascara if you're feeling ambitious. What I Use: L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara in Carbon Black ELF Lash Curler.
Everyone knows how essential a good brow is to your daily routine. Why we all may not have time sculpting and shaping them, giving them a quick comb through with the brow brush helps them have a more clean and defined appearance. Try Elf, Benefit, Soho Beauty, or any beauty retailer.
Price: $3 - $5
A Little Extra...
Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask
If you’re up for pushing the clock, try the Biore Self Heating One Minute Charcoal Masks. This self-heating mask has charcoal and is activated with water, forcing your to clean your face and remove dead skin cells. After a minute, rinse off the mask with cool water, to wake up your skin and have it look and feel baby soft.
Try A Lip
This can be a chap stick, a balm, some coconut oil or a full on bold lip if you want to look like you put a little extra effort in your look. I am obsessed with the NYX Liquid Suede in Soft Spoken. This is a perfect universally flattering nude that compliments any outfit. What I Use: NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick, Soft Spoken.
