There’s no denying that getting ready in the morning is one big sigh. This is why we need beauty hacks to make our morning routines simpler. But no matter how many hacks, tricks, and tips you follow, sometimes the early a.m. gets the best of us, and we can’t escape the occasional bad hair and makeup days. Don’t let them get you down though. Instead, laugh a little at yourself as you relate to these hilarious, but frustrating, morning scenarios.
You can’t get yourself out of bed, but you’re awake enough to complain about it.
When you finally do get up, you’re already planning how you can get back in bed ASAP.
Your cat is disappointed, once again, that you haven’t fed him breakfast yet. And he’d like to show you by polluting your brush with cat hair.
No matter how tired you are, it’s clear you’ll have to do some work to look decent in public.
You doze off here and there while using the curling iron.
And even a ponytail isn’t working for you today.
Perhaps you should try something else for a quick fix.
Maybe this wasn’t the morning to try contouring for the first time.
But you just put lipstick on and get over it.
When the girl at the front desk looks perfect as always…
And people ask why you’re wearing glasses.
When you do show up looking fabulous you still haven’t forgotten how tired you are. More coffee now.
This is you at work…because getting ready is exhausting.
