SheFinds Solution: Get Out The Door Fast And Still Look Semi-Decent

We've all had one of those days: we sleep through the alarm, get up on the wrong side of the bed, or just plain can't endure another rigorous morning beauty regimen. Fortunately, there are quickie beauty options out there that extend past throwing our hair in a ponytail and racing out the door feeling grungy.

One morning step that shouldn't be skipped is a good refreshing face washing. All-in-one cleansing cloths like Olay Regenerist Micro-Exfoliating Wet Cloths ($7) do all the work sans water, and leave you feeling a layer of grime lighter without having to go through a three step scrub-cleanser-toner ordeal. Follow up with a does-it-all cover-up like Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer ($42), which hydrates, evens tone, and protects against sun damage with one quick sweep.

Complete your get-out-the-door makeup routine with a convertible color that adds a natural flush to both cheeks and lips. Stila Convertible Color Compact ($24), Tarte Cheek Stain ($28), and BeneFit BeneTint ($28) are three great options to keep in your in-case-of-emergencies beauty stash. They each add a hint of tint so you don't feel sallow or un-made-up. If you've got the time for a second makeup step, sweep on a coat of eye brightening mascara for a wide awake look. Susan Posnick's Colorcoated Mascara ($24) is a dual-ended wand that features brow gel on the other end, so you can clean up your arches for a totally finished feel.

Finally, do something about your less-than-lifeless locks without having to lather, rinse, and repeat. Spritz a dry shampoo like Oscar Blandi's Pronto Dry Shampoo Spray ($21) or Algemarin Dry Shampoo ($10) on your roots for a quick pick-me-up that eliminates unsightly grease and leaves hair smelling like it was just washed. If you often find yourself needing a quickie beauty fix, consider investing in Bumble and Bumble's Hair Powder ($38.50), a spray-on powder that comes in four shades so you can match your hair color and skip the fluffing and touseling step altogether.
