Morning Express with Robin Meade

A fast, personal, and smart blend of all the news you want in the morning. We call it "News in the Fast Lane." So buckle up.

Robin Meade's emergency makeover

  • For the 1st time in 20 years, Robin overslept
  • She made it to the set with just seconds to spare
  • HLN hair and makeup completed her anchorwoman metamorph in record time
"Zzzxxxxp zxxxxp zxxxxp!"

That's the sound a NASCAR pit crew makes, and its pretty darn near what you would have seen/heard when my makeup crew got ahold of me after I overslept!

I woke up at 5:20. That's 5:20 am. In my bed. At my house. Miles away from the place where the show begins straight up at 6 am!

But get this: I was on the set ready to go at showtime, with the help of the makeup 'pit crew.'

Behold the metamorphosis as you watch this time lapse video, and here's hoping you are awake in plenty of time to get to work today.

Morning Express with Robin Meade airs Monday through Friday at 6am ET on HLN.  Like the show on Facebook, follow Robin on Twitter: @RobinMeade.
