Get ready in 5 minutes!

Some days (or most days) we all want those extra 10 minutes of sleep, so we take advantage of it and before we know we’re late for school or work. You only have a couple minutes to get ready and pull off looking like a decent human being before you’re late. This is where the tips come in. The following are things that can be helpful when those days appear and you’re in a bigger rush than Sonic the hedgehog.

For the guys I gotta say they have it easy! Depending on your routine it could take you five minutes or less. These tips will be sure to help:


  • Don’t forget to brush those teeth! Morning breath is no way to start the day.
  • Wash your face. I know why would a guy do that? But in reality there’s so much gunk we accumulate throughout the day we need to clean our face and make sure it’s clean. A simple facial cleanser will do.
  • Always moisturize. I know sounds girly,right? But NO ONE should go without moisturizer! Do you wanna look like your 40 at 30? I don’t think so, plus you will help fight against things things like skin cancer and inflammation.
  • Unless you can rock the five o’clock shadow then grab the razor and trim  away. If you’re just going to class then screw it.
  • When it comes to hair, splashing some water and combing it down is sufficient. Adding some pomade will make it look like you didn’t wake up a couple minutes ago.


  • Universal Rule: It helps to set up your outfits the night or the week before. Adjust accordingly as the day approaches, especially when you’re dealing with our weather. No one ever knows what the weather will be like. 


  • Wash your face and moisturize
  • Brush your teeth
  • Comb your hair/ trim and shave accordingly
  • Remember when it comes to clothes, black goes with anything and any earth tones automatically go together.
  • Spray some cologne, grab your stuff and go out the door.

For the Ladies it is always harder! Women’s routines are longer because we have more things to do. These tips will hopefully help cut it down enough to help you look like a human being and not a hobo.


  • Wash your face. This is a must, get all the gunk out of your face keep it clean and your skin will be brighter. Unless special needs are required any cleanser will do. Make sure you know what type of skin you have. Do you have oily or dry skin? Also, brush your teeth morning breath is not nice.
  • Makeup. If you don’t have time keep it simple. Add some BB cream to even out your skin tone. Add some concealer under the eyes to erase those dark circles. Then fill in your eyebrows. Keep those sisters tamed and maintained. Last but not least chapstick. Plump those lips up and keep it simple and moisturized.
  • Hair. at this point you probably don’t have the time or the patience to do anything with your hair. That’s where the lazy girl hacks come in. Ponytails, buns and braids come in handy. Add some hairspray to tame the mane.
