Already late for work? Chasing time to get ready and do your makeup?

It’s 9.00 am and you just woke up when you’re supposed to be already at work. You have got 10 minutes to get yourself ready and get out the door, but what about makeup?

Let’s be honest we all have had our fair share of episodes where we’re running late, and doing our makeup usually takes awhile.

Suggestion: Prepare yourself for such situations and standby a “I’m-late-for-work” essential kit as they are super handy for you to get ready and do your makeup quickly and go about your office or school days as normal.

So, without further ado, here are the essentials for a Hijabi’s “I’m-late” get ready kit:

The LUXE Satin Silk Snood by Aira Malaysia will be perfect for you who are always in a rush! This signature shawl was meticulously crafted from premium quality fabric and simply oozes effortless chic and sophistication.

It’s called a ‘snood’ shawl for its infinity shape or closed loop design.
