Not everyone is into mastering the cat-eye flick or achieving the perfect beach waves. We’re all different and while 20 different shades of pink lipstick might be important to some, learning ways to get out the door with the least effort required is more appealing to others. While we all can probably admit that being makeup free with hair thrown in a bun is one of the best feelings, there are certain times when looking and feeling put together is necessary.
Today we’re sharing some quick beauty tips for those of you who would prefer not to bother with hair and makeup at all—or even for those of you who just don’t have tons of time to put into getting ready. These tips will have you looking amazing while still getting you out of the house quickly!
1. Curl your lashes.
It may seem like a pointless step, but those seconds curling your lashes will make a huge impact! It will make you look wide awake (even if you’re not).
2. Get beach waves overnight.
Beach waves that require little to no prep in the mornings? This tutorial shows three ways to get wavy hair overnight—no heat required!
3. Throw on a hat.
A hat is every girl’s secret weapon. Find a cute one that flatters your face shape and—bonus!—you’ll be able to skip washing or styling your hair that day.
4. Use a multipurpose base.
Pick a product that has moisturizer, SPF, and tinted coverage all in one.
5. Pull your hair into a low pony.
A low pony is always a winning no-fuss hairstyle. It’s polished, even when pulled back in a messy “I woke up like this” kind of way. Wrap a strand of your hair from the bottom of the ponytail section around the hair elastic to really finish off the look.
6. Never underestimate the power of a bold lip.
Even with no other makeup, throwing on a little mascara and a bold lip can do wonders in just a minute or two.
7. Get a good haircut.
Not all haircuts are created equal, that’s for sure! Invest in a good one and your hair will naturally look better on its own without any styling. Specifically, ask your stylist for a cut that will air dry nicely.
8. Take good care of your skin.
If wearing makeup isn’t your thing—or if you just don’t have the time to put it on every morning, make sure you have a good foundation to work with.
