Woke up late? Get totally ready in 5 minutes (seriously!)


Slept through your alarm clock? Sleep-hit the snooze button? Don't panic. Follow the steps below for a completely put together look in five minutes or less.




Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo, $4.89,

Not Your Mother's Girl Powder Volumizing Hair Powder, $4.23,

Generously spray your locks with dry shampoo and dust with a texturizing powder, then sweep into a loose textured pony. If your hair's a bit tangly or your curls are unruly, that's fine—bigger is better when it comes to this look. 


Oil-free acne moisturizer, $7, 

e.l.f volumizing mascara in black, $2, 

NYX cream blush in boho chic, $6, 


Step One: Slather on your fave moisturizer (don't forget the SPF!).

Step Two: Dab cream blush onto the apples of your cheeks for a rosy glow. 

Step Three: Swipe on a coat of volumizing mascara on your upper and lower lashes and you're done!

P.S. If you don't feel comfortable leaving the house without a little foundation, invest in a BB cream (we like this one) and apply it all over your face for one-step coverage.  



High low gray sweater dress, $14, 

Faux leather ballet flats, $15, 

Vince camuto scarf, $15, 

Denier opaque tights, $4, 


Keep it simple. A cozy sweater dress, tights and basic flats are all you need. Accessorize with a cool scarf and head out the door!
