Few girls have unlimited time to spend in front of the mirror every morning – most of us are battling for that precious ten minutes of bathroom time with roommates or siblings. But a lack of time is no excuse for tired, puffy eyes and messy hair!
Invest in products that do more than one thing, saving you time, money, and space in your make up bag. Here are the ones we can’t live without:
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eyeliner, Eye Shadow, & Highlighter
– $8.95 at drugstores
This 3-in-1 tool is all you need for everyday gorgeous eyes. The applicator has two color-coordinated shadows that are specially formulated to enhance your eye color (you can pick from four different color combination). One end features a pointed tip for lining and contouring, the other end a rounded tip for shadowing and highlighting. For a product that does so much, the price can’t be beat!
Sephora Brand Double-Ended Perfect Complexion Brush
– $35 at Sephora
Apply your powder foundation with this pretty pink brush, then flip it around and use the other end to put on cream concealer. This tool is a splurge, but it’s easy to use and creates a near-flawless look using cream, liquid, and powder products.
This universally-flattering sheer pink stain can be used on both cheeks and lips. The color blends easily and looks very natural. We loved the way it made our cheeks look lightly flushed while giving our lips the perfect hint of pretty color.
Mark Hook Ups
– $5.50 or $8 each at meetmark.com
We love Mark Hook Ups because you can customize them in thousands of ways. Pick the two products you want to be connected (make up products like lip gloss and mascara are $5.50, skin care products like eye gel and blemish treatments are $8) and get a free connector. Our favorite combination is the Winkstick Hook Up Eye Shadow Stick and the Scandalash Hook Up Mascara because together they made our eyes pretty and natural-looking.
