You know the scene: It’s 6 a.m., you’re snoozing until the last possible second you need to get up, and you definitely can’t function until you’ve had your first sip of coffee. Chances are, you’re also struggling with your morning beauty routine — or lack thereof. If you’re willing to skip important things — like a well-balanced breakfast or showering — just to catch some extra zzz’s, then the thought of waking up early to set the hot rollers is probably hilarious (or terrifying) to you. Well, you no longer have to choose between sleep and beauty. With some practical but life-changing hacks, you can have both.
These beauty tips are so easy you’ll be able to follow them in your half-asleep daze, but they’ll make you look like you’d spent hours primping. And they range from supersimple tricks, like cutting out a stencil instead of freehand-drawing cat-eye liner, to hacks that will make you look like you have a hairstylist on speed dial (two-minute hair bow, anyone?). The best part? Some of these you can literally do in your sleep. Here are our easiest morning beauty tips — from your hair to your face down to your toes — for the laziest of girls.
