Hitting the snooze button eight times on a Monday is always bad news for your prep time. That extra 15 minutes of sleep will always cost you! Nonetheless, putting on a fresh face could still be a priority. And below are products that'll make your routine easier as you rush to your appointment in record time:
1. Hydrating Primer
Your messy sleep schedule will eventually affect your skin—it's just a fact of life. Thankfully, a quick fix always awaits. Work a hydrating primer into your skin after moisturizer to add a bit of radiance that'll last all day. Foundation, optional.

2. Cushion compact
Need a more even base? Well, no other foundation can serve you better than a cushion compact. Your skin will look brighter with just a few taps!

3. Concealer + Corrector
For any blemishes and extra dark bags you need to hide, use your ever-reliable color corrector before foundation.

Oily-skinned girls, never skip powder for a long day ahead. A colorless one that won't move your foundation is absolutely perfect for this!

Keep 'em in one place! Chances are, you'll only bother to put one color anyway.
