Look, we’re all fighting the good fight: How do you look as cute as you can for as little effort as possible? Here are some products made for those of us who just want to do the bare minimum—and look awesome doing it.
LUSH 9 to 5 cleansing lotion, $10.95 – 22.95
Behold: a way to wash your face, no water needed. With its lotion-like consistency, you only need to spread some all over your face and wipe off with a cotton round. Perfect to keep next to your bed if you literally can’t stand at the end of the day.
No7 Radiant Glow concealer, $13.99
There are a lot of awesome concealers on the market (uhh, have you heard of Tarte Shape Tape?), but most of those are so full-coverage, you need to be wearing foundation as well. And, uh, no one has time for that. This product by No7 is perfect for just dotting over your under-eye circles and any random blemishes.
This dry shampoo by Bumble and Bumble is perfect to get rid of grease and give you an extra bump of volume. Use the extra 20 minutes in your morning wisely (meaning, for sleeping).
Shadow Shields, $9.99 for 30-pack
No one has time to craft the perfect eye before you apply your foundation. Pop one of these beneath your eyes and catch all possible fallout—plus have an easy guide for winged eyeliner.
While huge, multi-color palettes might be tempting, this eyeshadow creme will soon be the only eye product you need. Considered a dupe for the MAC paint pots, this gel is perfect all over the lid and stays on all day. Bonus: This particular shade goes perfect from day to night, meaning you only need to apply once!
Who has time to sit down and paint their nails? No one, that’s who. All you have to do is spray this across all of your nails and wash off the excess.
Benefit Gimme Brow, $24
The easiest “no makeup” makeup look is just brows and mascara, so make sure those products a) are simple to apply and b) do the job perfectly. Gimme Brow is a tinted brow gel that you can comb through and fill out your brows in minutes. And this tiny bottle lasts for-ev-er—trust us.
CoverGirl mascara, starting at $5.24
If you can’t even get both eyes open in the morning, turn to some mascara. CoverGirl has so many options, we couldn’t pick just one.
Have #fire cheekbones with minimal effort—and minimal dough.
Don’t let all your (not that hard) work go to waste! With this setting spray, the most intense look stays all day.
These lippies require one coat and will not go anywhere. Plus, you have a million shades to choose from.
In case you can’t be bothered to use soap, this cloth takes all your makeup off with just warm water.
