4 easy time-savers for your morning hair and beauty routine
Reclaim your time in the morning with products that quickly get the job done.
When you’re trying to get yourself and a kid or two out the door in the morning, every minute counts. We asked real working moms for their biggest beauty time-sucks, and then tested the products that promise smart solutions.
Problem #1: Dark Circles
“When I have a big meeting or event, I feel like I need concealer to look polished. How can I apply it quickly and have it look natural?”—Cheryl Brody Franklin, Woodcliff Lake, NJ, college program director
Problem #2: Frizzy Hair
“I almost always wash and throw my hair up in a bun because by the time I blow-dry it straight and then tame the frizz with an iron, I’m hot and sweating. Is there one tool to help me wear my hair down?”—Paige Gunther, Staten Island, NY, nonprofit development and management
Problem #3: Overnight Grays
“I usually notice gray hairs in the harsh light of the morning, exactly when I don’t have time to do a full root touch-up. What’s a quick way to hide the growth?”—Deborah Skolnik, Scarsdale, NY, editor
Problem #4: Too Much Eye Makeup
“I rely on about six products every morning, and half of them are for my eyes. How do I get my eye makeup to look good without using so many items?”—Valerie Glassman, Durham, NC, assistant dean
