We’ve all had them - those mornings when you hit snooze one too many times. Next thing you know, you have less than an hour to get out of bed and get to class. So stressful! But don’t let the lack of time keep you from lookin’ fabulous! Here are some makeup hacks to fool everyone into thinking it took you hours to look this good!


1. Spray on that dry shampoo.

Baptiste Dry Shampoo

You should always keep a good dry shampoo lying around! Based on Influenster reviews, we recommend the Batiste Dry Shampoo products! There is a variety to choose from so you can have options for what works best with your hair type.


2. Part your ponytail.

This is a different ponytail look that is just as easy, but adds some style! You can let your front hair hang out to give you that messy, chic look - rather than just messy.


3. Use a colorful lipstick

It takes a minute to apply and just looks fancy! Also, the bold lip means you don’t have to apply bold eye makeup, saving you time. Try out NARS Pure Matte Lipstick, there are so many great shades to choose from!


4. Since there is simply no time for errors, apply eyeshadow as eyeliner

It is not as messy as eyeliner, so you won't have to worry about sparing time to clean up smudges. It also can be as dramatic or subtle as you like. Try light brown for the natural look or a turquoise to quickly add a bolder look! 


5. Conceal your dark under eye circles.

Fresh out of bed means sleepy eyes. Correct the bags under your eyes by applying concealer. Dab it with your finger to maximize the brightness of the look. Try the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer - it's one of Influenster Nation favorites! 


6. Coat your lashes with a dark mascara!

Get them as curled as possible to open up your eyes. If your lashes are not naturally curly, use an eyelash curler before applying Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara
