When you’re a busy girl, you need beauty products that not only work but that practically have superpowers. They need to be able to perform well on their alone and along with others. They can’t be expensive and they have to be easy to use – no exceptions! Here is my list of effective and easy beauty products that are dear to my heart. These aren’t just favorites – they’re super favorites!

5 Effective & Easy Beauty Products That Will Never Let You Down

Essie Grow Stronger Base Coat

I love to do my nails; it’s like therapy to me. But unfortunately, doing fun patterns and designs takes time that I don’t always have. That’s why I love this polish by Essie. I put it on when I don’t want bare nails because of its slight pink tint and fast dry time. It leaves a shiny finish and helps to strengthen my nails too!

Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation w/ SPF 30

Sometimes I want to put something on my face without having a “full face”. Just something with a little coverage and an easy-to-apply formula. That’s where this BB cream by Buxom comes in! It’s the perfect product to use on it’s own or mix with a moisturizer. It also has SPF 30, which makes it the best face product to use for a day out in the sun.

I love to mix this with a primer (since I have an oily complexion) and Tarte’s Brighter Days Moisturizer for a luminous, natural look that lasts all day!

Milani Baked Blush – “Luminoso”Β 

This one is a classic! Throughout my years of wearing pink blush, I finally discovered that peachy tones look best on my tan skin. This blush by Milani is not only the perfect shade of peach but it lives up to its name by having a luminous finish. This is a great product to use in a pinch because it will give that beautiful flush to the cheeks while providing a subtle highlight.

L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

My new favorite drugstore mascara – hands down! I love the look of long, natural lashes. I don’t like to wear falsies so I have to rely on good mascaras to give me that look I love. This one only takes a few swipes to apply, doesn’t clump, and doesn’t flake throughout the day. It’s also very easy to take off with a makeup remover (because nobody loves leftover mascara).

L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick – “Toasted Almond”

I am a self-proclaimed lipstick connoisseur. I love wearing all kinds of shades and formulas but sometimes I don’t have time to sift through my collection to find the perfect one. That’s when I turn to my sacred “Toasted Almond”. It’s creamy formula is quick to apply and feels nourishing on the lips. I have never experienced flaking or feathering with this lipstick! It’s also the perfect brown-pink nude that looks fantastic on any skin tone.
