Beauty on the Go! How to get ready in a crunch!

You hit the snooze button one too many times and now you've got about 15 minutes to get dressed and out the door. You can't be late, but you can't look like you overslept. Lucky for you, I'm the master of oversleeping. Here are my fool proof tricks for looking great in a time crunch.

When it comes to makeup simplicity is key. Pick multitasking items like BB cream foundations that will serve as moisturizer, SPF, correction concealers and foundation. My fave? Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB Cream.

After you've prepped your face, everything is simple. Skip the eyeshadow and eyeliner and use a great thickening mascara. Two coats to make you look awake. Finish with a swipe of bright lipstick. Nothing wakes up a face more than a bold lip, and reality is, you don't need any other makeup if you do.  I love Loreal's Colour Riche, sheer bold color, perfect for the office.

For your hair, its a ponytail kind of day. Pull back your hair, high or low, bumped or smooth. Everyone should know how to make a good ponytail quickly. Ponytails are polished looking with minimum effort. If you haven't learned the art of the pony, start looking it up on youtube today.

Finally, getting dressed for me is the hardest part of the process for me. I often second and triple guess what I want to wear. When in a time crunch, simplicity is key. Opt for a dress, its one piece and doesn't require selecting matching items. Also, pick one of your favorites, the go to dress that you love, who cares if you wore it 3 days ago. It's more important to feel good throughout the day than to hate what your wearing.

What are your time crunch  routines?
Have a great week!
