My Top Ten Favorite Skin, Hair and Makeup Products for Busy Mornings

Updated: Aug 15, 2019

We all know what it's like - you're super prepared the night before to wake up, have time to get yourself ready and have an easy, worry-free morning... until you wake up fifteen minutes before you have to leave and frantically try to get ready. I've experienced this dilemma too many times to count, so I've gathered a list of my favorite skin, hair, and makeup products that help me get out the door more quickly on busy mornings.

Simple Micellar Water and Mario Badescu Rose Water

1. Simple Micellar Water

This stuff seriously gets all makeup, dirt, or whatever is clogging your pores out so quick! I just put it on a cotton round and wipe it on my face.

2. Mario Badescu Rose Water

Rose water is a great natural toner, but honestly, it's just really fun to spray and it wakes me up in the morning! I also use it to wet my beauty blender if I'm too lazy to go to a sink.

3. Neutrogena Moisturizing Makeup Wipes

I use these to take off my makeup before bed, but they're super moisturizing without being greasy, which helps shorten my skincare and makeup routine.

4. Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Powder

I love using this to set my concealer or anywhere that I need some powder coverage. It's my favorite powder I've ever tried (and I've tried a lot)!

Naked Palette, Bobbi Brown Powder and Maybelline Mascara

5. Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Waterproof Mascara

No joke, I recommend this mascara to all of my friends! I just curl my lashes, use one coat of this, and it holds all day!

6. Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette

The colors in this palette are my favorite! They're pretty natural and I normally blend one or two colors on my eyelid and I'm ready to go! I use it for everyday looks and more glam looks, too.

7. Maybelline Brow Drama Gel

This gel is so easy to use. I comb through my brows first, then brush the gel through. I like to reshape my brows with a spoolie brush after using the gel, too, but I've found it's much quicker than a pencil or pomade!

Ulta Foundation Stick, Maybelline Brow Gel and Aquaphor Lip Repair

8. Ulta Beauty Moisturizing Foundation Stick

Honestly, I bought this foundation when it was on sale and I thought I'd just try it out. Turns out I fell in love! It's so easy to use and it works great!

9. Aquaphor Lip Repair

Okay... I think this stuff is made of pixie dust or something magical. I've been using it for as long as I can remember and I absolutely love it! It's super moisturizing, healing, and looks like a gloss too.

10. Eva NYC Freshen Up Dry Shampoo

This is my holy grail on busy mornings! I got a sample a while back and my mornings haven't been the same since! It takes under a minute to use and makes you look like you really have your stuff together... even if you haven't washed your hair in 5 days...

Neutrogena Makeup Wipes and Eva NYC Dry Shampoo

Hopefully, you got some inspiration from these products or you're excited to try them! I try to keep most of the products I use as affordable and easy to use as possible, because who needs more conflicts, especially in the morning? I know I don't!
