How To Shorten Your Beauty Routine

Swap In a 2-In-1 Cleansing Conditioner

Showering in the a.m. takes away precious time that you could spend getting in a few extra zs. To speed up your morning shower sesh, forego using a separate shampoo and conditioner, and reach for a product that can do both, like R+Co ANALOG Cleansing Foam Conditioner. The multitasking formula contains argan oil to nourish, horsetail extract to strengthen and smooth, and antioxidant-rich green tea to protect. Plus, the lightweight foam rinses out with ease.

Style Your Strands In the Shower

Its a given that you wash your strands in the shower, but why not style them too? Insert Living proof. Perfect hair Day (PhD) In-Shower Styler, which coats your hair in a unique gel-cream formula, adding fullness thanks to the brand's patented thickening molecule PBAE, in addition to helping control pesky flyaways. Just apply a generous amount to wet hair after shampooing and conditioning, then lightly rinse, and let air-dry.

Pick Multipurpose Complexion Products

No matter the season, its imperative to use an SPF to help protect your skin from the suns harmful raysthat's right, they still penetrate in the dead of winter! But who has time to pile on moisturizer, primer, SPF, and a base? Enter: CC cream (color-correcting cream). Its a one-stop-shop product packed with SPF, moisturizing ingredients, and anti-aging properties, plus a hint of color to conceal any blemishes or discoloration you may want to disguise. We love customer-favorite Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream SPF 35+, which has over 52,564 reviews (!) in the you know its good.

Make The Most of Your Mascara

Full, feathered lashes give you a wide-awake appearance regardless of how much sleep you actually caught the night before. If youre strapped for time (or just prefer to not to spend more than a few minutes doing your makeup), skip other eye makeup and tools (i.e. eyeliner, eye shadow, eyelash curler, etc.), and opt for a mascara that packs a one-two punch with both thickening and lengthening properties. Stila Cosmetics HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara gives full volume, length, and curl with just a couple of swipes. Tip: Wiggle the wand upwards from the roots to the tips of your lashes to make your lash line look even thicker, and to give a lifted effect.

Choose Double-Ended Makeup Sticks

Some would say the key to looking put-together with minimal effort is adding a bit of rosy glow to your cheeks and lips. Well, Wander Beauty On-The-Glow Blush and Illuminator in Bare/Nude gives you a soft just-came-in-from-the-cold flush on one end and a creamy, champagne pop of highlighter on the other. Both cream formulas complement each other, so you save time and take the guesswork out of picking a blush, highlighter, and lip color that all work together. Plus, they can be applied to cheeks, lids, and lips for an easy monochromatic look, making it a must-have for your purse or makeup bag.

Now, go on and enjoy the day with all that extra time you have on your hands!
