Oh, you know her. She's the one who struts through the door with a minute to spare, looking as effortlessly pulled together than ever. She is the snooze queen.

Not only has she mastered the art of clicking the snooze button, but she’s also mastered a time-crunched beauty routine. The thing about her effortless look is, well, it's actually effortless, that is, when you have a beauty routine you can breeze through before the next snooze alarm blares.

So rub your groggy eyes clear and get a look at these 7 Snooze Queen secrets you can easily make your own.



1. Zap of Energy

While a splash of cold water to the face will shock you out of snooze mode, you may want to amp up the energy, and flush out those pores while you’re at it, with CosMedix’s Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser. Infused with cooling peppermint essential oil, calming lavender, and clarifying tea tree oil, your skin is set in a matter of seconds.


2. Wide Eyes Awaken

Yes, eyeshadow can highlight your eyes in ways you’ve yet to imagine. But when you’re pressed for time and delicately detailed blending just isn’t an option, it becomes all about the lashes. With just one quick sweep, Lancome’s Cils Booster Xl Mascara Enhancing Base evenly coats and smoothes your lashes to maximize length and thickness; with the help of micro-fibers and Vitamin E of course. Now we’re not saying you have to skip the eyeshadow entirely, instead grab your favorite shade along with a regular mascara so that you can finish up when you get to where you’re going.


3. Enliven Lips

When you can really play up your lips, there’s no need to worry about your colorless lids. Nars’ Semi-Matte Lipsticks provide serious full -bodied long-wear coverage in rich, vivid shades that range from neutrals to high-fashion hues such as Catfight, Morocco, and Heat Wave. Patented with a blend of conditioners and antioxidants, this lipstick will also hydrate, nourish and protect your lips.


4. Sweeten Smile

You know what they say, a girl’s best accessory is her smile. So if you can get in a quick brush with Denblan’s Whitening Lightening Toothpaste  and make it shine -- great! This paste is actually pretty amazing when it comes to removing dental plaque, tartar, and tobacco or coffee stains. But if there isn’t enough time to touch the brush to your teeth, grab a GoSmile On the Go Teeth Whitening Pen.  The soft brush tip is perfect for targeting darker stains and between teeth.


5. Spritz of Energy

Adidas Fizzy Energy is one those scents that totally elevates mood infusing confidence throughout the day without becoming overpowering. A spunky and bold fruity, floral fragrance, Fizzy Energy combines notes of grapefruit, red apple, pineapple, jasmine and papaya for a unique, soft to moderate aroma. Just a spritz or two and you’ll smell just as good as you look.


6. Toss it all into a bag and go!

Remember how we said to grab your favorite eyeshadow shade along with a regular mascara, well those two are going to go in a clutch or tote bag along with your lipstick of choice and GoSmile whitening pen. After all, the biggest secret to being simply flawless, all throughout the day, is quick touch ups.
