How To: Get Ready In Ten Minutes

The alarm goes off. Already? That can’t be right. I just fell asleep five minutes ago. Press the snooze button.

If this sounds familiar, and you repeat this cycle of thought at least three times before finally managing to roll out of bed, you may feel a little stressed when you find out that no, somebody did not hijack your clock in the middle of the night and yes, it really is that late. Instead of spending the precious fifteen minutes that you still have regretting that you didn’t get out of bed earlier, throwing on sweats and pulling your hair up in a messy bun while blaming it on lack of time, here’s a quick and easy guide to hitting snooze and still getting to class looking cute.

The Hair:

Break out the bobby pins. There’s no way you’re going to get those kinks out of your hair in time, so leaving it down isn’t an option. But this cute style takes mere seconds to do and looks infinitely more polished then that thrown-together mess on the top of your head. Just grab the frontmost section of your hair, twist it back and downward then pin in place with a bobby pin. Gather the rest of your hair in a ponytail or bun at the nape of your neck.

The Face:

You’re in luck, because a natural look is incredibly popular right now. Skip over the first ten steps of your daily routine and go for a simpler option. Rub in a light moisturizer, then add a swipe or two of foundation just to even out skin tone. Brush a dusting of bronzer over your face and then open up the eyes with a coat of mascara. All ready!

The Clothes:

Keep an arsenal of cardigans and scarves in your closest specifically for these days. A long cardigan and large scarf paired with a tank top and jeans takes about twenty seconds to assemble and put on, but it’s just as comfy and way cuter then those unflattering sweatpant and hoodie pairings. Plus, putting your hair up with this outfit could pass for an decision made on purpose rather than because you didn’t want to get out of bed.
