A recent Wall Street Journal article states that women spend 7.62 minutes applying makeup in the morning. That's just not enough time to look super fabulous, right? But just because you're rushed in the morning, it doesn't mean you can't look your best.
I handpicked five beauty products that are easy and quick to apply for the woman-on-the-go. These beauties are practical and affordable.
For the Face: Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting CC Cream
One of the best ways to save time in the morning, is to use a facial cream that has multiple functions, such as the Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting CC Cream.
You should know that CC stands for color and correct, and this cream helps reduce the appearance of discolorations, fine lines and wrinkles. After applying, you don't even need to add another foundation-- though you can if you want extra coverage. $21.50
For the eyes: Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Eye shadows don't last long, and that's why a primer for the eyes is necessary. I recommend a strong yet gentle primer such as the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. It will help your eye shadow last hours longer. $20
An eye shadow in pencil form is ideal: Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes
Talk about saving time! After applying your primer, you can easily add a creamy, long lasting eye shadow such as Clinique's Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes. They come in form of a pencil, or crayon making your morning routine just a little bit faster. Unlike powder eye shadows, you won't need a brush or have to worry about residue falling on your cheeks. $16
Mascara that actually works: CoverGirl LashBlast Clump Crusher Mascara
How many times have you applied mascara only to find your lashes stuck together seconds later? You won't have to worry about clumps with the CoverGirl LashBlast Clump Crusher Mascara. It actually helps separate lashes while adding volume. The trick is in its curved brush design-- it moves along with the form of your eye allowing root-to-tip volume. I abide by this mascara! $6.99
For the lips: Bobbi Brown Brightening Lip Gloss - Lilac Rose Collection
I'm a strong believer that dark lip stick, or any lip pencil really, should be applied carefully. If you're short on time, consider a gloss such as the Bobbi Brown Brightening Lip Gloss. This one leaves a luminous touch with a pop of color. It's available in three shades and goes for $24. I actually wore this during my Telemundo segment where I talked about these very products.
