Everyone in the corporate world knows how important it is to present yourself well. This means, whether you work as a sales assistant or an executive at a company, being well dressed and carrying yourself confidently is vital.
Being a working girl isn’t easy, and neither is waking up early when you’re over worked, under a lot of pressure, definitely stressed and working late into the night. Unless you’re one of those rare, morning creatures, that is!
So how do you managed to look well put together in the mornings? And what changes can you make to reduce the pre work rush and chaos?
Keep reading to find out how.
Who has the energy to match colors when they’re half asleep? Neutral colors are your friend in your rushed mornings.
Take a good look at your makeup, and single out a few neutral colored eyeshadows, a nude lipstick, mascara, eyeliner and your blush. Put them into a bag and leave them in an easy to find spot, like your bathroom vanity/sink. This reduces the time you spend looking for them.
Wake up with makeup
No, we don’t mean that you need to sleep with your makeup on; that’s a terrible idea.
However if you’re always rushed in the mornings, and you have no patience for makeup, consider getting cosmetic tattoos. Something like a lip embroidery can save loads of time, and it’s definitely hassle free. But if you feel like that is too permanent, peel-off lip stains that last for only a few days maybe a better option.
Beside lip embroidery, you can also consider eyebrow tattoos and eyelash perms as well.
Minimum makeup days
If you don’t like the earlier option, and if you know how to manage a full face in the chaos, then consider doing minimum makeup on those rushed days. This look consists of a well-practiced eyeliner style, your favorite shade of lipstick, and a little foundation.
Pair this up with an efficient hairstyle, and you’re good to go!
Do your nails earlier.
Somehow colored nails don’t look as professional as a manicure, in our opinion that is. And who has the time to match their nail color to their outfit these days? Opt for a professionally done French manicure that will last at least a week. Even self-colored nails or a light pink shade will work well here.
Taking the time once a week to visit the salon will even relax you a little, and it will definitely reduce the annoyance of having to remove your nail polish at night.
Plan your outfit
Prepare ahead for your week, and know which outfits you’re going to wear for the week. Having them pressed and ready, and having all the accessories for it matched and ready will make your mornings a lot less chaotic. Use your “rest day” (Sundays for most) to get this task done.
Yes, we know, using even an hour of your only day of freedom can feel like a waste. But take our word on it, it’s definitely worth it…!
