Whether you're so busy you forget to eat regular meals, or you've been known to hit the snooze button one too many times, you don't have time for a full beauty routine. With these quick and easy tips you'll be looking good, while still being on time for work... or that hot date.

Doing your makeup on the commute? (Just using those time management skills!) Lighten the load and leave the blush at home. Use lipstick instead. Simply rub a (clean) brush over the top of your lipstick and apply like a normal blush.

Another item you can leave behind is eye primer. Concealer works just as well.

Bronzer can be used to make boobs appear bigger. Apply in-between the twins and then work your way up and over. Make sure you cover every visible area, except the boobs themselves. The color contrast makes them pop.

Waiting 20 minutes for your nails to dry? Ain't nobody got time for that! Dry nails in 2 minutes tops by dipping your digits into ice cold water. Sure, it's a bit uncomfortable, but you just got 18 minutes of your life back.

Make use of the elusive "cool" button the blow dryer. Ever notice how your hair stylist ALWAYS switches to the cool setting when she is finishing up? The reason is it helps set the style, increases shine, and reduces frizz. Who knew the cool button could do all that in just a few seconds? Cool, indeed!

Vaseline: A miracle substance. Put some on teeth to prevent lipstick stains, tame split ends by rubbing just a little bit on them, and if you still have remnants of last night on your face, it can be used as a makeup remover. For more uses of Vaseline check out The Style List. Someone should tell the dad from "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" that it's Vaseline that cures all, not Windex.
