    1. Nudestix Nudies Matte Blush & Bronze gives you a sun-kissed flush and can be applied to your eyelids and lips as well as your cheeks — no need to carry a different product for each step in the process. It blends easily with your fingers, but if you don't like hands-on blending, this clever multi-stick has a brush built into the other side of it!

    Nudestix are vegan, hypoallergenic, cruelty-free, gluten-free, and fragrance-free.

    Promising review: "Amazing! It gives such a natural flush for my ultra fair skin, which is hard for me to find as everything shows almost comically brightly on my face. It’s blendable, it’s not too heavy. Perfect for no-makeup makeup days, I’ve found myself skipping contour now that I have this. I truly hope this is never discontinued because it is MAGIC." —Bare Back

    Get it from Sephora for $34 (available in 13 shades).

    2. Ilia Multi-Stick is another multi-use makeup product TikTokers and celebs alike swear by — not only for its versatility but also for how natural and buildable it is. Swipe this on your cheeks and lips, then blend with your fingers and watch your skin come to ✨ life ✨. On days when you can't be bothered, this might just be all you need.

    See it in the same TikTok as above from @victorialyn!

    It's made with clean ingredients including nourishing shea butter, softening avocado oil, and protective yet breathable orange peel wax.

    Promising review: "I have been lazy with my makeup routine as of lately, so having a multi-stick and not having to whip out a brush and brush has been so helpful. I like how I can just swipe this on my cheeks and rub in with my fingertips. It gives a beautiful flush to the cheek area. This product has no smell that I can tell, which I am happy for. I love that this product is clean and I can feel good about using it. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful and well-made product that is not only good for the world, but good for the face." —Brittany0890

    Get it from Amazon for $34 (available in seven shades) or from Sephora for $34 (available in 14 shades and radiant or shimmer finishes).

    3. Live Tinted Huestick Corrector uses orange pigments to counterbalance blue and purple found in dark circles, spots, and hyperpigmentation — put this on underneath your concealer and watch them ~vanish~. This 4-in-1 multi-stick *also* delivers gorgeous color to your eyes, lips, and cheeks, so just pick this back up after foundation (if you wear it) to finish the job, and you're done!

    Live Tinted was founded by Deepica Mutyala, who first went viral for her red lipstick hack for under-eye circles in 2015. The Huestick was the first product the company launched, making waves as the first multi-stick with clean ingredients to also balance out dark circles and spots. It's made with hyaluronic acid, squalane, and vitamins C and E.

    Check out the "Rise" shade in this TikTok from @victorialyn. You can also see a demo from Deepica herself with the "Origin" shade in this Instagram post (swipe right to see it)!

    Promising reviews: "I'll admit, I was totally skeptical of these Huesticks. I am 34-years-old, of Sri Lankan descent (medium to deep tan skin) and I've NEVER been good at makeup. I was excited to try these Huesticks, made by and vouched for by a fellow South Asian, but was worried it would look like I was ACTUALLY wearing makeup. I was pleasantly surprised after using Rise under my eyes and around my mouth, blending with a BeautyBlender and then using my same amount of cc cream and powder foundation. You really still can't tell I'm wearing makeup. I even asked my BF if he could see the orange 'glow' under my eyes before I put on the cc cream and he couldn't see it! It really was color correcting!" —Reviewer

    "I love this pencil. I'm fair and cool-toned and got the peachy pink color. I've previously used other rose pink under eye correctors and brighteners that are pretty good, but the peachy tone and the texture of the pencil are the best I've found. I just pat some concealer over top and it covers my dark circles beautifully. Will repurchase for sure!" —NickiName

    Get it from Ulta for $24 (available in five shades).

    4. Too Faced Born This Way Concealer lets you skip foundation because really, who has the time? It's a lightweight, full-coverage formula that conceals, contours, highlights, *and* retouches all at the same time, significantly cutting the time spent on just getting your base ready.

    Check it out in this TikTok from @missmonolids, who demonstrates a five-minute makeup routine using it.

    Promising review: "I am lazy when it comes to makeup. I don't wear a lot of makeup and hate foundation. I like products that require little effort. Not only does this concealer do amazing job of coverage under my eyes and on my red cheeks, but also a little goes a long way. For someone like me who doesn't wear a lot of make up, a small amount provides an impressive amount of coverage." —snw17

    Get it from Sephora for $30 (available in 21 shades and also in a mini size) or from Ulta for $30 (available in 30 shades).

    5. Persona Super Blush can be used as both a blush and bronzer to contour and color your cheeks — *plus* it further helps minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines (unlike some blushes, which can just emphasize them). This over-achiever deserves a spot in your (very small) makeup bag.

    It's also used in this TikTok from @missmonolids with the Too Faced concealer above.

    Promising review: "This blush color is so pretty on me, I have medium olive skin tone for reference. It is very pigmented but blends so effortlessly. It is one of the best blush formulas I have ever tried; it never looks patchy whatsoever. There is a slight sheen (not shimmery or glittery), which gives such pretty glow to the cheeks. Highly recommend!!! I'm usually too lazy to write a review for anything but I wanted to let everyone know how good this blush is." —Bree20

    Get it from Ulta for $22 (available in three shades) or direct from Persona for $22 (available in four shades).

    6. First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads make adding an *extra* step to your skincare routine less painful — just swipe one of these around your face after cleansing to tone, exfoliate, and brighten all at once. See, that wasn't so bad!

    Some people even use these in place of cleaning when they can't be bothered to fully wash their face, so...there's that too. These pads are vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free. 

    Check them out in this TikTok from @mireyarios.

    Promising review: "I love these! I have dry skin and I'm lazy. I hate having to exfoliate before I wear foundation, and this makes it so easy! No more going to the bathroom sink to use a scrub. I keep these in my makeup case and use it before my moisturizer and my foundation goes on smoothly! It's so gentle on my skin; it doesn't burn like some chemical exfoliators I've tried. Will definitely purchase again." —Shan3285

    Get a 60-count jar from Amazon for $36 or from Sephora for $36 (also available in 28-count).  

    7. Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint applies easily with just your fingers, quickly evening out your skin tone with its intended blurring effect. The fact that it's buildable means you can easily achieve your desired level of coverage in one step, so you don't have to mess with other products on your laziest days.

    Just note it doesn't have SPF, so you'll still want to use an SPF moisturizer or primer underneath this. It has more of a velvety finish, a nice alternative if you don't like a super dewy look.

    Check out a "lazy girl" review of Eaze Drop in this TikTok from @missmonolids.

    Promising review: "This is worth the hype. I wanted something like my Glossier tint but not dewy. This is THAT. It's your skin but better with a natural finish. It can look 'flat' sometimes but it's okay. I just use this for errand days so it's really forgivable. This is a 'lazy day, lazy girl' makeup. I like it!" —Forgive70x7

    Get it from Sephora for $32 or direct from Fenty Beauty for $32 (available in 25 shades).

    8. E.l.f. Brow Wow makes your brows presentable in a matter of seconds for when you don't have time to be messing around with a full kit. This buildable wax-gel sculpts your hairs into place while also depositing hair-like fibers that make them look fuller. Reviewers say it's a great swap for pricier brands like Glossier and Anastasia Beverly Hills.

    Check these out in a makeup look from @mikaylanogueira, who succinctly describes Wow Brow as "the tinted brow gel that does the job."

    Promising review: "This $4 product has replaced ALL of my high-end brow products. This is the most amazing brow stuff I’ve ever used. I don’t even have to fill in my brows because this has such great coverage. It’s a game changer!!" —Isabella

    Get it from Amazon for $4 and from Target for $4 (available in four shades).

    9. Lilac St. Original Lashes are meant to be worn for up to five (!) days, so if you hate putting on mascara every day and don't want to deal with professional extensions, these might just fit into your low-effort routine. These vegan, cruelty-free silk lash fibers have an ultra-thin band, adhere well, and look *super* wispy and natural.

    Check out why these are a fave in this TikTok from @missy.hartung.

    Promising review: "I love every style I’ve tried from Lilac St. I have subscribed to their monthly program now and will continue using these beautiful lashes for forever. I’ve tried almost every false lash system on the market and none are as beautiful, wispy, light, and affordable as Lilac St. Waking up looking like my eye makeup is done every morning is awesome!!! These save so much time and I don’t have to use mascara anymore! I love Lilac St." —heather

    Get them from Amazon for $7 (available in three lengths).

    10. Eyeshadow color removal sponges let you experiment with colorful eye looks without the pain of cleaning or switching between brushes for every color. Just rub your brush in this pan for a few seconds, and it'll be good to go for your next shade!

    It's also a great travel solution — now you only need to pack one or two eyeshadow brushes!

    Hear more about this hack from @blendsbypouja on TikTok, who says you can find a similar one to theirs by searching up "color removal sponge" on Amazon, and this one is beloved by thousands of reviewers!

    Promising review: "This product makes it even easier for me to be lazy when it comes to cleaning my brushes. It also allows me to use the same brush for a makeup look since I can swish away a previous shadow and move on to the next. Great buy. Super easy to wash. I'm not going anywhere anytime soon, but when I do finally travel again, I'm sure this will be excellent to travel with and make it so that I only need to bring one or two brushes." —Azaleah Bumpus-Barnett

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    11. JVN Air Dry Cream eliminates the arduous step of blow drying your hair — you can just apply this to wet hair, and it'll leave you with minimal frizz and enhance your natural waves or curls if you have them.

    It's designed for all hair types and reviewers across the board mostly report a good experience with it, from users with fine, thin hair to coarse, curly strands. That said, JVN says it's especially good for people with frizzy, wavy, curly, or coily hair.

    Check out its heat-free results in this TikTok from @flashesofstyle

    Promising review: "Smells amazing. This stuff is a nice-one step process for when you are feeling lazy or don’t wanna blow dry. Keeps my waves and tames the frizz." —mmkile

    Get it from Sephora for $24 or direct from JVN Hair for $24.

    12. Beautycounter Cream Blush is a versatile option if you're trying to incorporate more clean beauty into your arsenal. You can apply it to your cheeks, lips, and eyelids for a silky pop of color in one step — and once it's used up, you can pop the pan out of the compact (made of 100% recycled resin) and just order refills to reduce waste.

    Promising review: "I have never used a cream blush before, but I don’t wear a ton of makeup anymore and I wanted to try this out. It’s a dream to work with and blends out perfectly!!! I’m really happy I took the plunge to try something new because it’s my new go-to!" —Cassandra D.

    Get it from Beautycounter for $42 (available in eight shades).

    13. Nail wraps let you try out more elaborate designs without the high price of a professional mani *or* the effort of creating designs yourself. They apply easily and last for days, so you can go out and flaunt your ~fancy nails~ without anyone knowing how low-effort they actually are.

    Check out a similar style in a TikTok from @thelifebath.

    Promising review: "I find them easy to apply and long-lasting. I wear mine at least a week before changing and I could go longer; I just like to change it up every week. You need a base coat and top coat for them to last and it's better not to use a fast-drying top coat. I use Sally Hansen base and top coat and have no chipping or lifting. There is some tip wear after a few days but that happens to me with regular polish, also. It's also helpful to push back your cuticles before applying." —Susan Day

    Get a pack of 16 sheets (224 pieces) from Amazon for $10.99 (available in two styles). You can also check out more nail wraps on Amazon here.

    14. Glossier Cloud Paint has long been a cult-favorite in the beauty community and, unsurprisingly, it's officially TikTok "lazy girl"-approved too. That's because it goes on *so* easily using your fingers and blends to give you the softest, most natural-looking flush. You can even pick it up in a slightly darker shade and use it as contour too!

    Check out how easily it's applied in this TikTok from @missmonolids. Psst — you can also check out our Glossier Cloud Paint review for more on why it's a lazy girl's dream.

    Promising reviews: "If you are fair like I am, Cloud Paint in Dusk is like Contouring for Dummies. I just swipe some into the hollows of my cheeks and pat until it's blended, and voila! A contoured face for the girl who has never contoured in her life and certainly doesn't have the patience to do so. The final touch is Puff on the tops of the apples of my cheeks and I've managed to finger paint my face into looking well-rested and sculpted." —Faith

    "Listen, I am a LAZY makeup wearer, L-A-Z-Y. I have mountains of blushes and I never wear any of them, I really wanted something that was quick (brush free). I bought this in Beam and I love it; it is bright, happy and a bit peach-orange. I think it is great for summer, and it is so easy to apply. I definitely want at least one more (or every) shade. If you are trying to work something simple into your routine, pick this up — it is not heavy or over the top and it literally lasts on my face from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m." —Mc K.

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in eight shades).

    15. The Clinique Contour Stick lets you just swipe on your contour anywhere you want it, then blend it out to add subtle depth and definition to your face. This style comes in a blush too if you want to add some color on top!

    Check it out in this TikTok from @sophiemariegraf.

    Promising review: "I love the idea of makeup but don't actually like putting it on. So when I wanted to take a stab at contouring I steered clear of the intense kits and palettes out there. This is the perfect contouring stick for the lazy girl who just wants a quick swipe with a big difference. Highly recommend this for other lazy girls like me." —AnamL

    Check it out in this TikTok from @sophiemariegraf.

    Get it from Sephora for $26.50 or from Target for $26.50.

    16. E.l.f. Glossy Lip Stain is for people who don't want to keep reapplying lipstick every time they put on a mask, have a drink, or eat some food. It goes on as a gloss, and if you blot away the excess, you'll be left with a long-lasting stain that's both beautiful and transfer-resistant.

    Check out the Cinnamon Dreamz shade in this TikTok from @missmonolids.

    Promising review: "This is the first E.l.f. lip product I've tried. I was so impressed that I immediately returned to get other colors. Cinnamon Dreamz is a perfect brown. I appreciate how easy it is to apply a light coat for a lighter shade or use a heavier hand to deepen the shade. It also wears down to leave a hint of color on my lips. A huge plus is that there's no fragrance or funky taste. Killer product!!!" —AutumnM

    "The color stayed all day! I was so impressed with how well the stain worked, through several cups of coffee and wearing a mask all day. I will continue to repurchase this over and over!" —Stephm516

    Get it from Target for $6 or direct from E.l.f. for $6.

    17. Naked Sundays SPF 50 Clear Glow Radiant Sunscreen Serum was specifically designed to replace your serum, moisturizer, *and* primer, because mornings are hectic enough as it is. Not only does this make sure your sun protection is covered; it also hydrates and locks in moisture and helps maintain your collagen.

    Naked Sundays

    Clear Glow is non-comedogenic, oxybenzone-free, and fragrance-free, plus vegan and cruelty-free. Of course, you can layer this with other serums/moisturizers as well, but you don't neeeed to. It's suggested to wait about five minutes to let this sink in before applying makeup on top.

    It's featured in this TikTok from @raziamoe, who uses sunscreen as their daily makeup primer.

    Naked Sundays is an Australia-based small beauty business launched in 2021 that revolves around all things SPF, creating products that help people incorporate sunscreen into their routine without the white cast, stickiness, or harsh smell.

    Promising reviews: "Love this item! Have stopped using moisturizer in the morning and primer. It leaves a beautiful satin finish. Love to put it underneath my foundation on freshly cleansed skin." —Michelle W.

    "I'm someone who has gone from never wearing sunscreen to freaking out if I haven't applied this glorious product under my makeup every morning! If you are like me and hate the feeling of a heavy sunscreen on your face, this magical serum will be your new best friend. Aside from keeping those pesky UV rays away from my face, it also hydrates and plumps the skin." —Melissa L.

    Get it from Naked Sundays for $36

    18. BK Beauty's 208 Precision Angled Brush makes achieving the winged eye look of your dreams a breeze so you don't have to stress or spend time redoing it. Its angled design basically creates the perfect wing for you — and bonus: That shape also makes it a great brow fill brush too.

    You'll definitely want to check out this demo on TikTok from @makeupandmeg, who uses this brush with Lancôme's Liqui-Pencil eyeliner to extend it out effortlessly. You can also use it with eye shadow, as shown above!

    BK Beauty is a digitally native small beauty business founded in 2019 by former MAC Cosmetics trainer and YouTuber Lisa J, whose aim is to make using makeup easy and attainable for all. 

    Promising review: "I have Asian hooded eyes, and this little work of magic was an ideal size for my eyes. Very versatile, perfect softness. I just can’t say enough and will definitely purchase additional ones." —Meulan A.

    Get it from BK Beauty for $15

    19. iMethod's winged eyeliner stamp is another alternative that's arguably even easier and especially worth it if black eyeliner is part of your everyday look. This double-sided stamp *guarantees* the wing on each eye will be identical, and the other side has a fine liner you can use to fill in the rest.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.30.
