5 Beauty Buys For Those That Can’t Be Bothered

Let’s be real; no working woman who must undertake any form of commute before the working day starts has an iota of spare time in the morning. The mad scramble for an outfit and a gallop to the train means we have zero minutes to spend beautifying our faces. We need products that are quick, easy-to-use and most importantly, get the job done. Here are five products to give you more time (to sleep) in the morning:

Aveeno After-Shower Mist, €9.99?

I used to scrape body moisturising in the early hours, but at the moment, my body feels like a worn piece of wood, so I need all the help I can get. A healthy dollop of moisturiser is the answer, but because no one wants to do the zombie walk while it drys in, a spray is the only option. At long last Aveeno has added a spritz offering to their renowned range of moisturisers, so you can spray, and run.

Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray, €28

If your skin is on very the dry side, sometimes, a single layer of moisturiser just won’t cut it. If you’re feeling flustered and sardine-squished on the train, this refreshing, cooling mist is what to reach for. One spray and your dehydrated face will get an extra hit of moisture.

 

Clarins Skin Illusion Blush,??20

What I love about this new limited-edition release blush from Clinique is that you can literally buff-and-go. No mess, no fuss and (even better) no need for a blusher brush. It has a sheen when applied that makes you look dewy?and naturally?flushed. These blushes come in three shades and suit every skin tone.

Rosie?For Autograph?Cream Eyeshadow Stick, €17

Her whole range is gold, but I’ve got it bad for her cream eyeshadow sticks. The cream glides on without looking oily – a big plus. ?Twist, scribble and get outta dodge.

Clinique Crayola Chubby Stick, €19.50

020714869991_main

Clinique has partnered with our childhood favourite Crayola to create eight new adorable chubby sticks from red hues to pink tints. These are so nifty; one swipe and the lips are coated with colour, leaving them smooth and gorgeous. ?Even when applied on a moving train, there won’t be a clown-mouth in sight.
