I'm ALWAYS busy. Running from meetings to more meetings to happy hour to events to ditching those events to go home and eat Chinese takeout while binge-watching "Stranger Things." No matter the day, I'm constantly on the go.

I feel like this is true for most women, no matter their profession. And sometimes, with our busy lifestyles, it can be hard to take the time to look good. 

I've partnered with knitwear clothing brand Nic and Zoe to share my tips on how to make busy look good. 

1. Learn a five-minute makeup routine

I love to get all glammed up, but when I'm busy, I just don't have time for that. So my five-minute makeup routine consists of foundation, mascara and a good lip (red or nude). You want this routine to be something that is easily touched up throughout the day. 

2. Comfy knit pieces

You want to stay comfy when you are running around but you also want to stay chic! Comfy knit pieces, like this studded jacket and metallic skirt, are cozy enough to feel like you are wearing sweats but chic enough to look like a million bucks.

3. Dry shampoo

This is the busy girl holy grail. Because let's be real, washing your hair is a huge pain in the ass. Stay fresh and looking like a star with a good dry shampoo. 

4. Water

To make busy look good, you have to take care of yourself from the inside out. Stay hydrated to keep hair, skin and nails looking fab no matter how much lack of sleep you might be dealing with.
