If you're anything like me, getting out of the house can be a real hassle. Changing your outfit more than once, eating your breakfast in the car because you just can't find the time...yeah, that's me.
Here are my easy morning hacks to getting out of the house quicker!
If you're into beauty like me, doing your makeup can take up a good part of your routine. This is why I always make sure to keep my makeup organized -- so I'm not searching for my eyeliner for 10 minutes or forgetting my favorite lipgloss in another purse!
I have to use a makeup organizer. Whether you have a ton of makeup, or a little but it of product that you want to keep organized, here's a selection of go-to makeup organizers to fit your needs.
Keep your makeup organized
Skip the blow dry -- or reduce the drying time
For me personally, it's important to take a break from the hair drying. I have a lot of fine hair that can easily break with too much touching and heating (hence my love of volume-boosting products, like this all-natural vegan mousse) so I prefer to let my hair air dry 1-2 times a week, especially in the summer. If you absolutely have to dry and/or style your hair, invest in a blow dry that is high watt (with ionic capabilities) so you can dry it faster. I love the Martino hair dryer pictured below, because it cuts down on drying time, while smoothing your hair.
Pick your outfit the night before
This probably seems self-explanatory, but if you're as into getting dressed up as I am, you probably need some extra time to pick out your outfit. This is why I suggest picking out your clothes the night before. If you know you're going to stop at the gym, be sure to also pack out your workout clothes in your gym bag, along with whatever other essentials you might need. (Here is my list of gym bag essentials.)
If possible, make your breakfast the night before
If you're making one of our powerhouse smoothies, I suggest making it the night before to shave off some extra time from your morning routine. (If you're not into a smoothie, there are a lot of other options you have that you can refrigerate overnight -- like this amazingly delicious and simple chia pudding.) I honestly couldn't live without my Magic Bullet Nutribullet. If you don't have one, now's the time to invest, because the one below is currently on sale for only $49.99!

I don't wear that much makeup daily, but I do want what I wear to look and feel like quality. The standout product for me (and my photographer) within the Honest Beauty makeup line was the Spotlight and Strobe kit. This compact kit contains two blendable creams to brighten your skin and a luminizing powder to add a flawless finish. It glided on effortlessly! Want more tips on how to strobe like a pro?

I also loved the Invisible Blurring Powder, because if I'm going to wear makeup, the most important aspect for me is to achieve natural-looking, clear skin. I lightly dusted the Invisible Blurring Powder across my face before this shoot and the results were indeed, camera-strong! Mattified, even, silky skin. Apply over makeup or alone!
If you guys follow me regularly, you also know I'm big on bold lips. The Lip Gloss in Playful Kiss was perfect. Infused with pomegranate, Honest Beauty's Lip Gloss added just the right shiny finish.

My hair felt nourished and clean (it even looked lighter in color!) but it didn't feel heavy or fall flat...

To apply my facial makeup, I absolutely love using Chrislie's Measurable Difference 6-Piece Makeup Brush Set. This collection - which includes a powder brush, eyeshadow brush, angled nose contouring brush, eyeliner brush, and eyebrow brush comb - allows me to apply my potions like a pro, to achieve that natural look, even with makeup, that I'm always looking to achieve. Of all the brushes included in the set, I absolutely adore the angled nose contouring brush; I recently realized the power of contouring like Kim K and now use it to make my nose appear thinner and more defined. When I have a few extra minutes, I'll use the eyebrow brush comb, to comb up my brows, like Queen Bey. I mean, just look at how beautiful hers are.
