How To: Get ready for school in under 10 mins


 
Between finalizing your first-day outfit and scrambling to grab breakfast, who has tonsa time to spend on primping? Luckily, we’re spilling some styling secrets to get you prepped to catch the bus with plenty of time to spare. Phew!

Skip the fussy eyeshadow. We love smoky eyes, but it's a tad overkill for the classroom – not to mention incredibly time-consuming. Draw some focus to your peepers without too much effort. A coat or two of mascara and steady swipe of eyeliner will do the trick.

Insider's tip: For a touch of shimmer, dust a little white shadow on your brow bone and swipe a light, sheer shade on your lid.

Spray in some shampoo. Now, we're not saying to use dry shampoo on the regs and never wash your hair (ick). But, every once in a while, it's totally OK to spritz in some dry shampoo if you hit the snooze button a few too many times.

Insider's tip: Let the spray sit in for two minutes, then brush out.

Cover up and zap zits. Ugh, blemishes are the last thing you want to show off when you're scoping out the new classroom cuties.  Hiding a pesky pimple with pore-clogging makeup usually makes it worse. Instead, snag a two-in-one acne-fighting concealer. What pimple?

Insider's tip: Save time and skip your usual acne treatment if you're using a concealer with salicylic acid – it's already doing the work for you!

Multi-task. After towel drying, let your hair air dry as you do your makeup and eat breakfast.  Bust out the blow dryer for a bit if your strands are still damp. Trust us, this will take up a lot less time than starting off with totally drenched hair.
 
Insider's tip: Use a straightening gel or cream while your hair is damp to avoid using a hair-wrecking flat iron.

Loosen up. For curly hair chicas who wake up with that kinda-curly-but-not-really frustration going on, try a texturizer.  It loosens your curls into a fab wave while de-frizzing your locks.

Insider's tip: Use a diffuser with scrunching gel for defined curls.
