6 Simple Ways to Dazzle Without the Hassle

Jun 22, 2016 04:36AM ● Published by Family Features

When a long day at the office turns into a late evening with family or friends, you need a quick and easy get-ready routine so you can get up and do it all again the next day. Keep your morning hassle-free with these time-trimming tips.

Eyes
When your schedule is dragging down your energy, your eyes may be the first to show it, especially if you’re prone to bags or circles. You can skip the effort of a full-blown makeup application, but concealer is one thing you don’t want to overlook. Cover up the tell-tale signs of tiredness then swipe on a light shadow to brighten your eyes. Polish the look with a coat of mascara to add definition.

Teeth
A white, brilliant smile lights up your entire look. Keep your teeth sparkling with a convenient and affordable whitening tool such as the Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen, which whitens teeth five shades in three weeks and begins working in one day. The whitening pen stores easily inside the toothbrush, taking the hassle out of whitening.

Hair
When it comes to hair, your best bet is planning ahead. Stock your bathroom with the right tools to rock an unwashed look without appearing sloppy. Depending on your hair type, this may be as simple as shine serum and a stylish hair tie for a sleek pony or some dry shampoo to boost limp roots.

Lips
Pale lips are another obvious – but easy to correct – indication that you skimped on your morning routine. Even if your makeup is low-key, apply a nude lipstick that enhances your natural look or a gloss with a hint of color for a pretty shine.

Face
Keep skin looking fresh and radiant by moisturizing regularly. Using a tinted formula can hydrate and provide coverage at the same time, helping get you out the door faster.

Body
Avoid last minute indecision by laying out your clothes the night before. Be sure to iron, steam or lint-roll first then hang the outfit outside your closet so you can easily throw it on in the morning. It helps to set out shoes and accessories, too, since picking the perfect complements to your outfit can prove to be time-consuming.
