Luckily, we built this city on lazy-girl tips and tricks — and we firmly believe that there's no beauty disaster you can't remedy with a clever hack or two. So, we called in hairstylist Clay Nielsen and makeup artist Anthony Tulve, told them our most common #WokeUpLikeThis woes, and asked them to come up with easy, fast fixes that could make you selfie-ready at 7 in the morn' on a Monday — if you're into that kind of thing. But, more importantly, there will be no more jumping in the shower and starting from scratch every single day.
Click through and prepare to have your morning issues solved.
