Even those of us who consider ourselves beauty and fashion obsessives get lazy sometimes — but that doesn’t mean you can’t take a few minutes to revive your skin, style your hair, and throw on a one-and-done jumpsuit. Maintaining an effortlessly put-together appearance without actually putting in much effort is all about investing in the right products: so if you’re lazy but want to look good, you’ll wish you get these 46 things sooner. From beauty products that transform your skin in mere minutes to understated accessories that’ll take your outfit from casual to casual-chic, these products will come in handy next time you’ve got an early-morning engagement and just can’t even.

There are a few obvious products that seem like they were practically invented for sluggish days, like skin care/makeup hybrids that do multiple jobs at once and, of course, the ultimate lazy girl hair hack, dry shampoo. But there are ways to look good that don’t require any effort that you may not have thought of: drinking enough water and running a humidifier while you sleep are two habits to get into for maintaining strong, hydrated skin, while stocking your closet with a selection of timeless basics — like a classic silk blouse and a few LBDs — will ensure you always have something stylish, yet unfussy, to wear.

For the full list of clever ways to look good without putting in much effort, scroll on.

An Easy Way To Get A Pro-Quality Manicure Without Going To The Salon

Press-on nails have come back in style — maybe it’s our generation’s obsession with convenience? — and KISS recently launched this upgraded press-on nail kit that comes in 24 modern, fresh-feeling colors. They couldn’t be any easier or quicker to apply, so they’re a great solution for when you don’t have the time to go to the salon or give yourself a manicure.

The Beauty Editor Secret To Silky Hair In Seconds

Too lazy to wait around in the shower for your conditioner or hair mask to absorb? L'Oreal’s 8 Second Wonder Water works even better than either of those things — and does its job in just eight seconds. It’s a water-light treatment that’s suitable for all hair types, even fine and thin (promise: it won’t weigh you down), and you wash it out almost as soon as you’ve applied it. The result is suspiciously silky, shiny hair, almost as if by magic.

A Classic LBD That’ll Never Go Out Of Style

You wouldn’t think it, but the little black dress was practically invented with the lazy girl in mind. It requires no effort or imagination — you can just throw it on with a pair of heels (accessories optional) and instantly have a chic, elegant outfit for any occasion. This one, which is sold in both short and long sleeve styles, is made with 5% spandex to give it stretch, so it’s pretty comfortable, too.

This Multipurpose Tint For Your Lips, Cheeks, & Lids

Another lazy girl makeup hack is a three-in-one multistick.

The Fan-Favorite Dry Shampoo That Cleans & Refreshes Your Hair

Dove’s dry shampoo is beloved because it doesn’t just soak up oil and add volume, but it also genuinely makes your hair look and feel cleaner. This will allow you to go another day or two without washing your hair, and it’ll revive hair that’s looking lifeless, greasy, or dull, too. With this order, you get three big bottles for just $15, so it’s an amazing value.

An Overnight Cream That Brightens & Revives Your Skin While You Sleep

Overnight face creams and masks, like Lumene’s Valo Nordic-C cream, are the beauty insider’s secret to waking up with glowing, luminous skin. (Also, if you know you’re not going to be getting a full eight hours, this will help you look like you did.) This decadent, cloud-like cream is packed with radiance-boosting botanicals found in Finland, like arctic cloudberry, Nordic birch sap (which is rich in vitamin C), and arctic spring water, as well as skin-plumping hyaluronic acid. You won’t even need to do anything else in the morning (aside from applying SPF, of course) — just rinse your face with water and go.

The Easiest Way To Achieve Loose, Beachy Waves By Yourself

Whether you’re too lazy or too unskilled to master the art of the curling iron, Bed Head’s Makin' Waves Hair Waver offers a much more user-friendly solution. To get the beach waves of your dreams, you simply clamp this tool down on your hair — that’s it. No patience or technique involved. “This is sooo worth $24,” wrote one Amazon reviewer. “I hate curling my hair, but this makes it a quick and easy process [...] if you are lazy and love an easy, pretty wave-- buy this!!”

Only got one minute to prep and pamper your skin? Then you’ll love these M-61 PowerGlow Peel Gradual Tan pads.

Comfortable, stylish, and an outfit all on its own — this is basically the lazy girl’s dream dress.

  • Available colors: 9

16

The Only Product You Need To Apply In The Morning

Cut down on the steps in your morning routine and invest in this best-selling BB cream instead.

  • Available shades: 10

17

A More Comfortable, But Equally Stylish Alternative To A Dress

Sold in two cool colors, navy and army green, this jumpsuit would work in at least three out of four seasons: in the autumn, throw on a denim or leather jacket and some booties; in the spring or summer, wear it with sandals and some gleaming gold hoops. A truly effortlessly chic outfit, if there ever was one.

This Eye Cream/Concealer Hybrid To Streamline Your Morning Routine

As you’re probably aware by now, products that combine makeup and skin care are a match made in heaven for lazy mornings. That’s exactly what this eye cream from L’Oreal does.

Made with hyaluronic acid to hydrate skin for up to 24 hours, this multitasker looks great both on bare skin or worn along with foundation.

  • Available shades: 14

19

This All-Natural Spray That Releases Wrinkles From Your Clothes

When you’re too lazy to iron or steam your clothes, spritz on some of The Laundress’s Crease Release spray instead. Though it won’t do as good of a job as an iron, it’ll still help release those wrinkles so they look less noticeable (while making your clothes smell better, too). “Perfect for busy people who don't have time to fold laundry,” noted one Amazon reviewer, while another commented, “Works great to get out wrinkles after laundry has been sitting for a day or two. We all know we don't always have time to hang and fold clothing in the same day. This is the perfect solution for those set in wrinkles. I find it to work just as good as ironing, and takes way less time. I also make sure to carry it when traveling, cause all clothing gets wrinkles well in a suitcase!”

20

A Magnetic Eyelash Kit That Even Beginners Can Master

Another game-changing beauty product for the lazy or unskilled among us, this magnetic eyelash kit makes quick work of one of the most notoriously different makeup-related tasks. The faux lashes are applied with the included lash applicator and magnetic eyeliner, so the whole process is practically effortless. In addition to 12 pairs of reusable lashes in assorted thicknesses and lengths, the kit also comes with scissors to trim your lashes, as well as a compact storage case for travel.

21

A Truly Effortless Way To Support Healthy Hair, Skin, & Nails

22

A Hot Air Brush That Combs, Smooths, & Dries Your Hair In One Step

You don’t need to exert much energy to get a salon-worthy blowout, as long as you have the cult-favorite Revlon One Step. This is the paddle-brush version of the iconic tool — the other requires a little more technique to achieve a bouncy blowout (whereas this one is better for creating smooth, straight hair). All you have to do is brush it through your hair like you would with a normal brush, and soon you’ll have sleek, dry, full-bodied hair. Absolutely worth the one-time, $35 investment.

23

These Stylish Sneakers With A Hidden, Built-In Wedge Heel

Too lazy for heels, but still want some height? These comfy sneakers have a hidden, built-in heel — and unlike those wedge sneakers that were popular about a decade ago, this pair’s wedge is disguised so well that you can’t tell you’re wearing heeled sneakers at all. These come in lots of cool color offerings, from neutral all white and black to a bold pink, red, and gold combo that feels very of-the-moment. One Amazon reviewer wrote, “I originally bought these shoes because i needed sneakers that supported the arch in my feet, but they’re the most comfortable shoes i’ve ever purchased. I found myself wearing them everyday at work - and i’m a nurse at an OBGYN office who’s constantly on her feet. 10/10 recommend!”

Get your sneakers looking fresh-out-of-the-box clean, with minimal time and effort, with these Jason Markk Quick Wipes. The dual-sided wipes have one smooth side for lifting scuff marks and dirt from leather, and a textured side with raised bumps to buff the tougher parts of your shoes, like the soles and outsoles — though they work just as well to clean your purses and other leather goods, too. Throw a few of these single-use packets in your bag in case of emergency spills and scuffs.

25

The Timeless Silk Blouse That Will Always Look Chic

On days when you want to look polished but simply do not have the energy to put together a creative outfit, this satin blouse will be a lifesaver.

Get it in six shades, from chic black to punchy bubblegum pink, or in leopard print.

  • Available sizes: XX-Small — 3X
  • Available colors/prints: 7

26

An In-Shower Body Lotion That Tans Your Skin, Too

For a quick and fuss-free way to cheat a sun-kissed glow, try this Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer. It’s meant to be applied right in the shower and dry down quickly so the color won’t transfer onto your white towels; over the next few hours, the tanning agent develops gradually for a natural-looking bronze. The formula is infused with collagen, elastin, antioxidants, and moisturizers to promote firmer, softer skin, so there’s no need to follow it up with another lotion. No wonder this time-saver has earned close to 20,000 perfect five-star reviews on Amazon.

Choose from 12 chic designs, like smooth matte black or rose gold glitter.

  • Available colors: 12

An Easy Way To Transform Any Outfit

Slipping on a waist belt is an easy way to transform anything you put on — be it a shirt dress or a coat — into an intentional, cohesive outfit. With their chic, interlocking gold clasps and leather detailing, these belts look so much more expensive than they are — though they ring up at under $5 a pop — and the elasticated construction comfortably fits several waist sizes.

The Retro Hair Tool That’ll Take Your Ponytails & Braids To The Next Level

Once you get the hang of it, you can use them to achieve more complicated-looking styles that only seem like they’d be complicated to do. The order comes with four tools in two sizes to suit different hair lengths and thicknesses.

A Fabric Shaver So Your Clothes Always Look Brand New

It may seem like a small thing, but those stray lint and fuzz balls dotting your sweaters and coats do make a big difference in how you present. This handheld fabric defuzzer gets rid of those little imperfections in an instant, all without snagging or damaging delicate fabrics.

31

This Texture Spray That Gives You Tousled, Parisian-Chic Hair With Zero Effort

Use unwashed hair to your advantage with this texture spray from amika. A few spritzes gives your hair great volume and a matte, piece-y effect that looks intentionally bedhead-like, not sloppy, whether you wear it down or style it into an effortlessly cool, Bardot-like bun. Rice starch helps absorb excess oil, much like a dry shampoo, so your scalp will also feel refreshed and soothed. It doesn’t hurt that it smells amazing, too.

32

A Cozy-Chic Dress That’s As Comfy As Your Favorite Oversized Hoodie

You’ll practically live in this sweater dress in the fall and winter, especially on those cold, dark mornings when the last thing you want to do is get out of your pajamas. The ribbed material and chunky turtleneck are equal parts cozy and chic; while the mid-thigh length is just short enough to feel effortlessly sexy, without being overly revealing, so you can totally wear this to the office. This would look so cute with tights and over-the-knee boots, or even with sneakers for a low-key vibe. You can also belt it if you’d like some more structure.

  • Available sizes: X-Small — X-Large
  • Available colors: 16

33

A Bedside Humidifier To Hydrate Your Skin (& Eyes) While You Sleep

You may not think to buy a humidifier for its aesthetic effects; but by maintaining proper moisture levels in the air, it’ll keep your skin and eyes properly hydrated, too (it’ll also help prevent your lips from feeling and looking dry). This one has a simple, sleek design that complements any interior, and its compact size will remain discreet in your bedroom. It runs for up to nine hours on a full tank, so it’s perfect for using overnight.

34

The Perfect Pair Of Everyday Earrings To Dress Up Any Casual Outfit

The half-beaded detailing on this pair of gold hoops amps up any outfit, no matter how simple it is. They’ll make even a simple jeans-and-tee outfit look truly elevated, though they’re streamlined enough to complement even the most eclectic combination of fabrics and prints in your closet. Size-wise, they’re relatively small — think one step up from a huggie — so you don’t even have to take them off at night if you don’t feel like it.

35

An Eyeliner That Also Boots & Nourishes Your Lashes

Another brilliant hybrid product, this Physicians Formula eyeliner is technically a liner and a lash in one. The formula contains ingredients like peptides and glycerin to support stronger, nourished lashes, and the liner itself delivers an intense pigment and a smooth, skip-free line for fuss-free application, even for beginners. Reviewers confirm that it’s long-wearing too, so you won’t need to deal with touchups throughout the day. Choose from black or brown.

  • Available shades: 2

36

A Fuss-Free Alternative To Ironing

This handheld steamer does away with the need to pull out the iron and ironing board every time you need to smooth a garment. (But let’s be honest: how many of us actually have an iron and ironing board?) One Amazon reviewer raved: “This steamer is small and compact but packs a punch for getting out wrinkles. It takes no time at all and is super easy to use. Literally fill with water and turn the switch on.” It’s small enough to travel with, too, so you’ll always look polished on vacation or a work trip.

37

The Best-Selling Jeans That Feel Like Your Comfiest Leggings

With over 40,000 five-star ratings, these Levi’s skinnies are among the most popular jeans on the market. That’s likely because they don’t feel like jeans at all — rather, they pull on like a pair of leggings, and they have plenty of stretch for a snug yet forgiving fit that doesn’t lose its shape. But since they look just like jeans, no one will know how comfortable you actually are. Choose among eight denim washes and solid colors, like olive green and Burgundy.

  • Available sizes: 2 — 28 (available in 28-, 30-, and 32-inch inseams)

38

This Genius Way To Give Yourself Pro-Level French Manicures

When you don’t have the time or energy to go to the salon, these French manicure stickers will be great to have in your arsenal. The half-moon stickers act as templates, so you can just peel one off, place it just below the tip of your nail, and paint a perfectly French-shaped tip using the color of your choice. (Though you can use them to create other designs too, not just French manis.) This $6 set comes with a total of 648 stickers, so you’re set for the foreseeable future.

39

A Flowy Mini Dress That Doesn’t Require Any Extra Styling

Thanks to its ornate, embroidery-style print, this tunic dress is an outfit in and of itself, no accessories required — so in other words, it’s the perfect throw-on-and-go dress for lazy days. The fabric is light and airy to keep you cool during the summer, but this moody black colorway can easily transition into the cooler months when paired with tights, boots, and a coat. It comes in several other colors with varying floral designs, as well as some short-sleeved styles with equally pretty prints.

Plus, reviewers with sensitive skin confirm that the soft microfiber is super gentle on skin, not irritating.

41

The Fashion Girl’s Solution For When You Have No Idea What To Do With Your Hair

This chic headband accomplishes two lazy-day objectives at once. First, it’s an effortless fix for unwashed hair, or if you just don’t feel like styling it; and second, it works overtime as an accessory, thanks to its printed satin material with a bead and crystal ribbon running through it, and that on-trend knot on the top.

42

The Most Important Way To Foster Healthy Skin From The Inside Out

You know how celebrities always say that their number-one beauty secret is staying hydrated? Well, they’re not wrong: Drinking an adequate amount of water is recommended by dermatologists for its clinically proven ability to increase your skin’s elasticity, plumpness, and clarity. This water bottle makes drinking that “adequate amount” a lot easier — the bottle is printed with time stamps indicating how much water you should drink each hour, plus motivational slogans to help you push through. It clocks in at 64 ounces, which is just under the recommended 74 ounces for women, so you only need to deal with refilling it once throughout the day.

  • Available colors: 11

43

A Pair Of Oversized Sunglasses That Make Any Outfit Feel Glamorous

These oversize cat eye sunnies will add a hint of glamour to any outfit, and their opaque lenses hide tired eyes — what’s not to love? Amazon reviewers are obsessed with how expensive they look and feel, too. “Was looking for an oversized pair of glasses for a trip to Europe--one that looks good and does the job, but I would not feel super sad if I loose. SOJOS Vintage Cateye Sunnies to the rescue! These feel expensive and fit great on my face. They have that Jackie O flavor and come with a soft case and cleaning cloth. Perfect for a $10 purchase,” one happy shopper wrote.

A 2-Piece Lounge Set That Nails The Balance Between Comfy & Stylish

This two-piece set is worth adding to your cute-but-comfy loungewear collection.

Slip on a pair of slide sandals or sneakers (and even some jewelry, if you’re so inclined), and you’ll feel perfectly put-together to run some errands if you must.

A Truly Effortless Way To Promote Better Hair & Skin

Swapping your cotton pillowcase with a silk one takes the concept of “looking better while lazy” to a whole new level. The slippery, frictionless material results in less breakage and unwanted frizz in your hair; and, skin-wise, silk absorbs less bacteria and moisture than cotton, so silk pillowcases can help stave off breakouts at the same time. Why wouldn’t you want to promote stronger, softer skin and hair while you sleep? This one is available in 34 sophisticated colors that’ll look gorgeous in your bedroom, from neutrals like taupe and ivory, to more saturated shades like sapphire.

This Fun & Fast Way To Deep Clean Your Makeup Brushes

It’s no secret that cleaning your brushes is one of the most-dreaded beauty tasks — or that it makes a major difference in your brushes’ performance and longevity (not to mention the importance of cleansing them of breakout-inducing bacteria). But this electric brush cleaner does the impossible: It makes cleaning and drying your brushes effortless, fast, and even fun. One shopper commented: “I always dread cleaning my make up brushes since it’s just too much work to scrub the bristles multiple times to get them clean. I am really glad I came across this product as it literally takes make up brush washing down to a couple seconds.” This machine even dries your brushes for you, so there’s barely any effort on your part involved.
