Slacker Beauty: Speedy Shortcuts To Try Now

You know that saying, “you snooze, you lose?” Yeah, we’ve got an issue with that. As unabashed lazy girls, we think it’s completely acceptable, nay imperative, to spend more time sleeping and less time primping in the a.m. An hour to do our hair? No thanks. A 30-minute, meticulous makeup application? Hells to the no.
As far as we’re concerned, there’s no reason you can’t be out of bed and out the door in 10 minutes flat, with only half that time spent on your beauty routine. So, we enlisted makeup artist Claudia Lake and Bumble and bumble stylist Britney Williams to show us their best hair and makeup shortcuts.
From a sneaky way to concoct pretty waves to the one makeup trick every girl needs to know in order to look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, read on to get the scoop, then go ahead and hit that snooze button — you’ve got time.
