47 Lazy-Girl Beauty Hacks Everyone Should Know

So pretty, so easy.

It's a makeup sealer that professionals use to keep makeup from sweating off or sliding off your face and basically your new BFF if you're planning on going dancing or running or doing something super active.

20. Use the one and done philosophy: If you've got only a short amount of time (or energy), play up either your eyes or your lips, not both.

And if you don't feel like going crazy with your eyes, a quick comb of an eyebrow brush and a swipe of mascara can usually do the trick.

22. Prime your eyes with white eyeliner or eyeshadow to really make your colorful shadows and liners stand out.

23. If you want to make your flaky, clumpy mascara last longer, mix a little contact solution in.
