    20 Low-Effort Makeup Products That Are Perfect For When You're Feeling Lazy

    You might be lazy, but damn you're gonna look good!

    1. This WUNDER2 WUNDERBROW brow gel works as a temporary brow tint (without the commitment of dye). It has a transfer-proof, smudge-proof, waterproof, and sweat-resistant formula that lasts for days.

    2. This 3-in-1 colour-correcting primer has purple to correct yellow tones, green to neutralise reddish tones, and pink to mask dark circles! It'll also help to reduce the appearance of large pores, acne marks, and fine lines for smoother, less textured skin.

    3. These long-lasting eyeshadow sticks from KIKO Milano are incredibly easy to use, and require hardly any blending skills at all. They're incredibly vibrant, last for up to eight hours, and are even transfer-resistant.

    4. Shape and tame your brows without having to waste time plucking them (or getting them threaded, TBH) with these super handy eyebrow razors. They can even be used to remove peach fuzz.

    5. Want your eyeshadow to pop with minimal effort on your part? Use the Barry M Cosmetics Lid Lock Eyeshadow Primer to make sure your eyeshadow stays *locked* in place and as vibrant as can be.

    6. Amplify any eyeshadow look with the Glam Attack Liquid Eyeshadow from Haus Laboratories. It has a super-blendable, buildable, liquid-to-powder formula that stays put all day. All you have to do is shake to activate, and apply onto the eye as needed.

    7. These 2-in-1 eyeliner and microblading-effect brow pens have a brush tip that mimics the appearance of natural brow strokes, so you can achieve fuller-looking brows in no time!

    8. Save time (and effort) thanks to this two-sided eyeliner stamp pen that'll help you achieve perfect wings every time! Simply stamp on the wing before finishing with the eyeliner side of the pen, and voilà!

    9. Perfect your complexion with this 3-in-1 All Day Flawless Foundation that's a primer, foundation, and concealer combined! It's full-coverage, and has a long-lasting, water-proof, touch-proof, and sweat-proof formula that stays put all day.

    10. Make contouring just that little bit easier (and quicker, if you ask me) with this dual-ended Insta Duo Contour Stick by Rimmel London.

    11. These super nifty eyeshadow shields can be used to prevent any potential eyeshadow fallout from ruining your already-applied makeup – so you won't have to waste time fixing any potential mistakes.

    12. If you're anything like me, cleaning your makeup brushes can be such a chore – so why not make your life just that little bit easier with this reusable colour removal sponge? It allows you to quickly switch colours using the same brushes!

    13. This Stila Convertible Colour for Lips and Cheeks, 'cause what's more easy than literally dabbing some colour onto your face? It will give you a sheer glow that people will probably think you spent hours perfecting!

    14. Get that false lash effect thanks to this 4D silk fibre mascara that'll curl and elongate your lashes without making them look and feel lumpy.

    15. Let this kabuki flat-top brush do all of the blending for you! It'll apply your base perfectly thanks to its soft and dense bristles, and won't soak up your foundation unlike some beauty sponges.

    16. This NYX Can't Stop Won't Stop Loose Setting Powder will give your makeup a flawless, matte finish. It can also be used to carve and define your face too, chiselling your cheeks for a more sculpted look.

    17. This magnetic eyeliner and false lashes set is a must-have for anyone who likes falsies but has trouble getting their lashes to stick on. All you have to do it apply the magnetic eyeliner, wait three to five minutes, and then apply the lashes. The magnet particles will do ALL THE WORK for you.

    18. Moisturise and soften dry and chapped lips with these super hydrating tinted lip balms. Packed with beeswax, coconut oil, and vitamin E, these lip balms will give your lips a gorgeous natural sheen without the effort of applying lipstick!

    19. Taking your makeup off at the end of the day doesn't have to be time-consuming, thanks to this chemical-free makeup removal cloth. It will remove all of your makeup (including mascara, might I add!) in seconds, with just water!

    20. Finally, lengthen the life of your makeup with this Rimmel London Insta Fix & Go Setting Spray. It's a 2-in-1 primer and setting spray that'll keep your makeup in place for up to eight hours, without settling into fine lines or smudging in the process.
