Once in a while (sometimes more than that), we all have slept through the alarm(s) we set the previous night. And what does that result in? Running late for work. It is not always easy to put yourself together when you're freaking out about being shouted at or missing a meeting. Plus, no amount of time in the morning is really enough now, is it?

If you're worried about how to look presentable when you're running late, you need to relax. We have put together a few doable beauty tips that might just help you. Are you ready then? Well, here you go:

1.You can create waves by passing a flat iron over your braids, a few times. Once they cool down, undo them.

2. If you want to do something different without wasting too much time, just tip your head upside down. Grabbing three strands, begin a Dutch braid. Next, pull your hair into a pony and secure it with an elastic. To finish, wrap your hair in a messy bun. And don't forget to secure it!

4. Anti-frizz products contain hydrating ingredients that keep your hair looking smooth. If you ever run out of anti-frizz cream, you could use a hand cream or a body lotion that contains glycerine or coconut milk instead.

2. To minimize the amount of mascara on your eyelid, just use your ID as a shield. Place it against your upper lash line. This will ensure that your mascara doesn't get all over your eyelid.ID - BookMyShow

3. Instead of using an eye liner, you could smudge your mascara to create a lined eye. To smoothen out the smudge into a straight line, use an angled brush.
