We all have those mornings where we wake up with only enough time to get dressed and out the door. If you want to look beautiful, though, it's helpful to have some beauty hacks in your back pocket! Here are 10 simple ways to look great (and save time) so that no matter how busy your morning is going to be, you'll still feel like a total boss when it comes down to getting ready:
Exfoliation is an important part of your beauty routine, especially if you want to keep your skin looking fresh and clear. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells and keeps pores clear. You can use a gentle scrub in the shower or at night before bedtime, but it's also great for removing makeup if you don't have time to wash off all of your makeup before work! Just use a soft washcloth (or even just warm water) to wipe away any residue from your face, then pat dry with a clean towel.
Eye cream is a must-have for any beauty routine. The skin around your eyes is thinner than other areas of your face and therefore more susceptible to aging. By using an eye cream, you can help prevent wrinkles and crow's feet by keeping this delicate area hydrated and moisturized.
When choosing an eye cream, look for one that contains ingredients like antioxidants (vitamin A or green tea extract), ceramides (which help strengthen the barrier function of the skin), hyaluronic acid (helps with hydration) or peptides (which stimulate collagen production). You should also choose an unscented product if you have sensitive skin!
If you're new at using an eye cream, start by applying it only at night before bedtime so that it has time to absorb into your skin properly before putting on makeup in the morning. After some time passes and as long as there are no adverse reactions from using the product on its own without additional products underneath them then try adding some additional steps such as applying under-eye concealer beforehand so they blend seamlessly together when applied overtop each other later down during those rushed mornings when getting ready faster isn't always possible due to lack thereof time needed.
Moisturizer is a must. It's important to use moisturizer every day, especially if you have dry or aging skin. Be sure to apply it after showering or washing your face in the morning and before bedtime, but not right after applying makeup because that can make your foundation look cakey. The best time to apply moisturizer is right after cleansing and toning your face (or anytime during the day if needed). Apply it evenly across all facial areas including the decollete area (the area between neckline and shoulder blades). You should also use it on hands, feet or any other place on, which dryness occurs regularly like knees or elbows.
Use only products made specifically for your skin type! If you have oily/combo skin then choose products labeled "oil-free" or "non-greasy" because these types tend not produce excess oil as much as others do; however, if you have dry/sensitive skin then opt for ones labeled "moisturizing" instead since these tend contain fewer ingredients than those described above.

Lip balm is a must. It helps you look healthy and youthful, and it can be used to hide imperfections like dry lips or redness. If you don't want to wear lipstick but still want the confidence that comes with having luscious lips, then apply lip balm before putting on lip gloss or lipstick. This will prevent smudges from ruining your look!
Bronzer And Blush
You might have heard that bronzer and blush should be applied in a specific order, but it's really up to you. If you want to apply them in the same motion, start with bronzer and then go back over it with your blush brush. If you prefer to apply them separately, just make sure that one isn't sitting on top of the other, this will make both products look muddy or patchy when blended out!
Some people like their cheeks super-pink while others prefer something more natural; this is where choosing an appropriate color comes into play. For example: if you want a bolder look and want people who see your face up close (or even from across the room) know that there's something going on there (like blush), opt for a bright shade like coral or fuchsia. But if this isn't really what works best for your complexion (I'm talking about skin tone here), stick with something more subtle like peach or rose pink instead!
The best time for application depends largely upon how long it takes us all day long before we get home after work/school etcetera.

Powder foundation is a great way to achieve a flawless look. It's easy to use, but you have to make sure that your application is just right.
Use a brush instead of your fingers. Powder foundation can be applied with either method, but brushes allow for more precise coverage and help keep the product from settling into creases in the skin or getting on clothing or other surfaces around you.
Apply in circular motions instead of sweeping back and forth across the face (this will also help prevent caking).
Don't use too much powder, it should be visible only where it's applied directly over blemishes or discoloration; otherwise, there should be no visible difference between dry skin and covered areas (except maybe around nose/mouth). If too much has been applied, remove some with a makeup remover wipe before blending again with liquid foundation if desired!
Dark Circle Eraser
If you're looking to cover up your dark circles, apply a small amount of concealer with a cotton ball. Use a light touch and apply the concealer in the shape of an upside down triangle beneath your eye. Start at the inner corner of your eye and blend outwards, adding more if needed. Blend well!

Baking Soda Shampoo, Body Wash And Facial Scrub
Baking soda is a great all-natural ingredient that can be used to make your own shampoo, body wash and facial scrub.
To make baking soda shampoo: Mix 1/4 cup baking soda with 2 cups of water until combined. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months. To use, massage into wet hair and rinse well with warm water (don't use conditioner).
To make baking soda body wash: Mix 1/4 cup baking soda with 2 cups water until combined. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months. To use as a body wash: Wet hands under running water; apply a small amount of mixture to palm of one hand; rub hands together vigorously until foamy lather forms; massage onto entire body from head to toe (avoiding eye area) before rinsing off completely.
