Pick out your clothing the night before—okay, it’s not a new idea, but it is really helpful. Check your calendar for important meetings that you may want to dress up for, look up the weather forecast, and make sure everything is wrinkle-free and ready. That way, there is no rushing, no freaking out, no mishaps in the morning—you can just dress and go.
Mix a bit of self-tanner into your night cream before bed. The blend will moisturize and add a bit of dewy glow to your mug by the next morning, which will hide flaws and limit the time you have to spend on makeup.
