When you have a really hectic schedule, taking time to get ready every morning can easily become a time-suck. Between hopping in the shower, styling your hair, applying makeup and finding your fave outfit, we can all admit that primping is sometimes anything but easy. Thankfully, there are now a ton of products available for busy girls who don’t have time to follow a full makeup or skincare routine in the morning. We’ve compiled a list of multi-purpose beauty products that will make your mornings smoother and faster.
Black Cake Mascara
This mascara has been getting a ton of attention lately, and for good reason. With a few drops of water, this "cake" transforms into mascara, eyebrow pomade and can even work as an eyeliner.
Multistick in Macaroon
This multistick is a cream-to-powder formula available in 18 glamorous shades. Use it to highlight and sculpt your cheeks, eyes and lips.
Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer
This hydrating foundation not only moisturizes your skin, it also diminishes blemishes and prevents premature aging. You'll also find a full-coverage concealer placed in the top cap to cover up any dark spots or circles.
Quick Thinking 4-in-1 Wipes Value Pack
This set of wipes is perfect for when you're in a rush and need some quick refreshing. Cleanse and remove impurities, tone, moisturize and remove waterproof eye makeup all in one go. Since the wipes are infused with witch hazel, your face is guaranteed to be left feeling clean and moisturized.
18-in-1 Pure Castile Soap
While it may look like an ordinary bottle of soap, Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile soap does so much more. You can of course use it to wash your face, body, hands and hair, and for bathing and shaving, but you can also brush your teeth, rinse fruit, wash dishes, do laundry and mop floors with it. Other creative uses include all-purpose cleaning, window-washing, toilet scrubbing, dog washing, oh, and it also kills ants and aphids. Wow.
Priming and setting are typically two separate parts of the makeup application process. However, this mist can prime your face before you put on makeup, set it when you're done, and also refresh your skin throughout the day.
Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain
If you're not a fan of powder blushes or intense lip colors, try this tint for a simple flush. Look naturally rosy by dabbing some across the apples of your cheeks and also on your lips.
Huile Secret de Beauté
While this body oil certainly smells great and leaves your skin both hydrated and glossy, that's not its only purpose. You can use this oil on your hair as a pre-shampoo treatment to moisturize your strands.
Multi-Miracle Glow Cleanser, Mask & Balm
It's no surprise that Charlotte Tilbury's Miracle product range has quickly become a cult favorite. The Multi-Miracle Glow acts as a soothing cleanser, mask, or balm.
Aquaphor Healing Ointment Advanced Therapy
Many people credit Aquaphor for its restorative and skin-soothing qualities, but the reality is the ointment actually does so much more. Cosmopolitan compiled a list of 20 possible uses for Aquaphor, including using it as a makeup remover or eyebrow gel, letting it help you transform powders into gels, and even using it to conceal split ends.
