My 10-minute beauty routine that is perfect for those last-minute outings or when you’re running late!

In a perfect world?  Each and every day is planned out, on a pretty little schedule that makes my phone ding an hour before something is getting ready to happen.

But add “real life,” into the mix, and things can come up at the last minute, or we’ll choose to get up and go somewhere in a pinch.

So I love having a quick beauty routine that I can turn to at the last minute, so I don’t look like I just rolled out of bed when “life” happens.

No Shower, 10 Min Beauty Routine and Out the Door!

The other day, my hubby calls and says,

“Hey, what do you think about meeting Mr. X this afternoon?”

“Sure! Sounds great.”

“Ok babe, on my way, see you in 10 minutes.”

WHAAAAAAT!!!?  I had no idea that he meant like, RIGHT now! I hadn’t even showered yet. This left me scramblin’.

Let me build the scene for you…

I was down in my basement, working in my home office, {ahem, ok maybe playing on Pinterest a little bit}, when he called me with that idea.

I ran upstairs to my bedroom and thought for a split second,

How am I going to look presentable in 10 minutes?

Here’s my 10-minute beauty routine that I came up with, and I realized… it CAN be done, and you can totally do it too:

The "No-Shower," 10 Minute Beauty Routine, and Out the Door!

Steps for a Quick Beauty Routine

First things first…

Spot Clean

— Grab a rag and wipe down the areas that need wipin’ down. Know what I’m sayin’?

Change Your Clothes

— Throw on your favorite, versatile jeans or shorts. (Currently, my favorite jeans are from LOFT and a simple top, like a fitted tee. No worries… you can dress this up quickly if you like.)

Hair and Makeup Routine

— Heat up your favorite hair styling tool. Then, if you have oily hair like I do, grab that dry shampoo. Spray it on, and brush it through. (My favorite is Klorane!)

— Grab that styling tool, and get to stylin’. I managed to quickly curl in some beach waves in just a few minutes. I like choosing to do the beach waves, because I like the “loose,” look, so I don’t have to leave the curling wand in, long at all.

— No time to wash your face, just time to touch up the makeup you already had, (unless you were a good girl, unlike me, and washed your face the night before).  Touch up with your MAC highlighting pen (that I talked about earlier for the dark circles under the eyes) eyeliner, mascara, blush, and bronzer.

Accessorize – optional

— Grab some jewelry nearby, and accessorize yourself… adding some, “pop,” to your look.

In the car…just like that. You look presentable in 10 minutes.

I had to kiss my little guy before I headed out though, or my day would just not be complete. No worries, I didn’t leave him home alone. My friend Brandy was watching them that day.  🙂

Now that I know it can be done… I hope procrastination isn’t in my future, knowing I can slack a little on my beauty routine. 😉

What would your 10-min beauty routine look like? Close to mine?

    I love cleansing wipes for this very reason. Where did you get your necklace?

    1. Jessica says:

      Me too!!!! 🙂 Oh shoot, you know what… I grabbed that necklace YEARS ago. I’m sure at a store in the mall. But I’m thinking like 10 years ago. No lie. Lol! I’m sorry! I wish I could tell you where to grab one, at least similar! I’ll keep my eye out for one, and let you know if I come across one! 🙂
