You've been there before: You scramble to get ready for work because you "did not hear" your alarm. You chose to sleep over everything else. Tulog is life—we get you. But because we care, we don't want you to be late. Iwas bawas sweldo!
That said, we enumerated tried-and-tested tips to help you get ready in the morning in minutes. Hope this list helps!
Use multi-tasking products.
Simplify your a.m. beauty routine by using multi-purpose products like a BB or CC cream (SPF + coverage) and color cream (made for eyes, cheeks, and lips).

Focus on one facial feature.
Swipe on a lipstick in a palaban shade or shift the attention to your eyes by having bold brows and lush, curled lashes. Putting the spotlight on one facial feature will make getting ready easy and quick. Think: What do I want to highlight today?

Forget about your hair (kind of).
We know it’s still important to appear presentable at work, so buhaghag hair is still a no-no. What you can do is to style your locks in a ponytail but with a polished twist—a side part. But on mornings when you just can’t even, just spritz on dry shampoo, work it into your hair, and you’ve got a sexy, messy bedhead look.

Have a sure style formula, aka a uniform.
If you take so much time getting ready because of your outfit, we suggest that you create a go-to outfit or a uniform. Creating a uniform saves you minutes and reduces decision fatigue in the morning. Maybe try a blazer, tee, and jeans if you work at a casual workplace or a shift dress for stricter office environments. You’ll still look put-together with minimal effort. Another cool hack you can try is to prepare your clothes the night before.

Grab an on-the-go breakfast item.
Let' be real: Buying fancy coffee every day is not good for your wallet. Bring your own coffee and keep it in an insulated tumbler—3-in-1 tastes good and it still gives a caffeine kick. Take a banana with you for a healthy energy boost.
