Create a consistent routine and stop dreading Monday mornings
Mornings are rough, but a great routine can make them better. Follow these tips to get your day off to a smooth start.
Have the essentials
There are certain products you just have to have if you're to get through your morning routine in a reasonable amount of time.

Know how to polish your look
You may be out that door in a flash, but you certainly don't want to look like it. SheKnows Expert Daniela Ramirez starts says the perfect shade of lipstick (Sephora, $35) and a pair of statement earrings (primadonna.com, $4 - $42) will give you a polished look for on-the-go.

Mornings for mom
You've got a lot of things (and people) to take care of in the morning, but it's important for you to make the time to take care of yourself, too. SheKnows Expert Vera Sweeney is one mom who has figured out a way to get it all done and even sneak in some "me" time before the day gets crazy. She loves to use a great mascara (Nordstrom, $32) and stick eyeshadow (Clinique, $17) to make a big impact in a short amount of time.
