Sometimes a morning routine can take up to an hour, depending on the day. From a shower or dry shampoo to nailing that perfect cat eye and red lip, getting ready for the day is a task everyone must conquer. If that time period can be shortened any bit, doesn't that put our daily start on a better foot?

Want to learn a few simple tips from the beauty herself? Look no further — Chung shared some advice to put together a cute, simple look for every day in just a few minutes.
1. Opt For A Top Knot
"When you're in a rush, it's easy to pull together an effortless top knot that still looks chic," Chung said in a statement for Dove's Simply Stylist Sessions. "Pull your hair into a bun or mini twist, secure any loose ends with a bobby pin and you're good to go!"

2. Go With A Cat Eye
"Start the line from the inside [of] the eye and draw all the way to the end of your lash line in one smooth motion. Then, add a little cat eye just beyond the top lash line — just a little wing." Chung's other pro-tip? How you should position your head: "I always tilt my head back to make sure the base of the liner is all the way into my lash line."

3. Make Your Lipstick Last
"I love color and I love a bold lip. Make sure to apply your lip color and then add just a tiny bit of loose powder over the top of it. Then, go back over it again with another layer of lipstick — this will ensure it stays on longer."
