    25 Low-Maintenance Beauty Tips And Products Made For Lazy People

    Or anyone who wants an actual effortless, effortless look.

    1. If you're bad at keeping up with beauty routines, or sometimes forget to, you should keep an overnight moisturizing oil in your nightstand. All you have to do is apply a little bit of Midnight Shift, and it'll work wonders while you sleep.

    2. If your skin's a little tired and dehydrated, you should give Aqualia's Thermal Night Spa a try. This sleep mask will hydrate your skin overnight, which is when skin is most receptive to treatments.

    3. Are you into overnight products? If your answer is hell yes, then Pixi's Nourishing Sleep Mask should make its way to your bathroom cabinet. Why? It'll moisturize, heal, and protect your skin while you sleep.

    4. You can also stimulate cell turnover and renewal while you're fast asleep. Yup, all you have to do is use Julep's Night Shift Sleeping Mask before going to bed.

    5. If you, like me, love mud masks but hate how messy they can be, you should give Patchology's SmartMud No Mess Mud Masque Sheet Mask a try.

    6. The facial roller is a Chinese skin care tool that will do wonders for your skin. It improves elasticity, reduces puffiness and wrinkles, and eliminates toxins.

    7. Skin care routines normally have various steps meant to be followed religiously. If you can't commit to that, you can start by combining two of those steps in one. Use Clinique's Pep-Start 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser to get rid of dirt, dead skin cells, excess oil, and impurities.

    8. When picking out a sheet mask, make sure you're getting something that will not only make for a cute Instagram post, but also helps any skin concerns you may have. If you skipped out on exfoliation one week, then go for a sheet mask that can help with that.

    9. Olay's Complete All Day UV Moisturizer SPF 15 combines two of the most important parts of any skin care routine: moisturizing and SPF.

    10. Want your pimples to disappear overnight? Cool, COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patches can definitely help with that. Each patch will make any whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples you've been picking on disappear by the morning.

    11. Taking care of your feet can be rough sometimes — literally — so instead of removing you calluses with a callus file, you can try something easier like PoshPeel Pedi Cure Intensive Foot Peel. All you have to do is soak your feet in a little bag full of magical juice, which will progressively dissolve the dead skin on your feet.

    12. If you have chapped or dry lips, but keep forgetting to apply lip moisturizer, you should try a leave-on lip mask.

    13. If you want to experiment with different makeup trends, but don't have to time or patience to actually commit, you can start by trying Laneige's Two Tone Lipstick for an effortlessly cool ombré lip.

    14. If you love wearing colorful lipstick, but your lips are in desperate need of hydration, go for something like ChapStick's Total Hydration Tinted Moisturizer.

    15. Glossier's Wowder is a great product that does multiple things for your skin. It cuts shine and oiliness, blurs the appearance of pores, and sets your makeup.

    16. Fenty Beauty has a ton of great products, but one of the most versatile ones is the Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick. You can use it as eyeshadow, highlighter, lip color, and eyeliner.

    17. Getting the perfect-winged liner takes skill, time, and determination. So if you've given up on it, it's understandable. But it's 2018, baby, and everything you ever wanted is yours for the taking. Now, there are actual wing stamps you can use to cheat your way to the perfect liner.

    18. Eyeshadow can be an intimidating thing to experiment with, but with stencil stickers, anyone, even beginners, can make it work.

    19. Nudestix Clean-Up Pencil is a godsend when you mess up your makeup, but don't have time to start over. This magical cleanup pencil instantly melts any mistakes without having to use soap or water.

    20. Tired of body wash that makes your skin feel dry? Then you should go stock up on Glossier's Body Hero Daily Oil Wash. Not only will it make you feel so fresh and so clean, it'll keep your skin soft and hydrated too.

    21. Some people love nail art but don't have the time or skill to do it themselves. For them, I have a quick an gorgeous solution. Go for holographic-looking nail polishes like ILNP Cameo's Ultra Chrome Nail Polish, and your manicure will always be a conversation starter.

    22. And if you're doing your your mani-pedis at home, quick-dry drops are a must.

    23. Want great hair but don't always have the time for it? Well, the Beachwaver will do all the work for you. You just have to hold it.

    24. You can solve many problems with the Bumble and Bumble Prêt-à-Powder shampoo. It absorbs oils, gives you volume, and adds texture.

    25. And Aussie's 3-Minute Miracle deep conditioner was made for those you need to give their hair some love, but only have a couple of minutes for a hair treatment.

    Now, go treat yourself to a low-maintenance routine.
