    1. Quick cleanse

    This face wash is one of the main reasons we roll outta bed in the morning. The citrus beads are full of energy and vitamins that will rejuvenate your skin after a busy weekend. Washing your face takes just a few minutes…but keeps you feeling fresh all day.

    2. Add a little color

    We love cream blush for adding a natural kiss of color to your face. Find which shade is best for you (hint: it should match your natural flush) and apply it to your cheekbones. This stick is super portable, doesn’t require a brush and only takes a second.

    3. Brighten up

    Hey there, zombie. One of the best ways to look alive in the morning is by applying an eye brightener to the inner corners your eyes. Apply a white and shimmery liner to the corners of your eyes to make your eyes appear bigger and brighter. No one will ever know how late you were cramming last night with this quick tip.
