If you’re anything like me, you want to look like Beyonce without having to put the time and energy into actually looking like Beyonce. Thankfully, the world is a magical place and I’ve discovered 10 different products that can help you feel like a spicy mamajuana without needing to put in any real time or effort. YOU’RE WELCOME, LADIES!!
1. St. Tropez Self Tanner
Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m one of those people who still fake bakes even though it’s not 2000 anymore. Don’t hate a girl because she wants to look tan in the winter! In my defense, St. Tropez has given me the most natural looking tan out of all the tanners I’ve tried yet, and I look pretty damn fabulous. It doesn’t leave you with weird orange skin afterwards and this tanner in particular is perfect for lazy people because the color shows up after just one application and lasts a week long. I’ll admit it’s a liiiiitle pricey, but I promise it’s worth every penny. Don’t let the door hit you on your way out, Jergens Natural Glow! I use the Classic Mousse for $42.
2. Body Blur
If you’re not looking to commit to being tan, but you still want some color, this could be for you! Body Blur gives you an immediate tan for one wear and washes off in the shower. It took me maybe 5 minutes to apply all over my body because the liquid is pretty thin, but don’t let that worry you because the color still shows up! It’s also good for hiding streaks and keeping with you on the go! You can find it at the holy mecca, Sephora.
3. Makeup Wipes
There’s no worse feeling than being in bed at 3 am and realizing that you still need to take your makeup off, but you’re fresh out of makeup wipes. The beauty of the makeup wipe is that it takes about a minute to remove your whole face with just a little cloth! Do yourself a favor and buy some of these before the next time you hit your head on the sink trying to wash your face after 4 glasses of wine, Becky. ps I like to use these from Walgreens!
4. Stamp-On Eyeliner
The great thing about winged eyeliner is that it’s sexy and creates a dramatic look. The awful thing about winged eyeliner is that just one shake of your wrist can send eyeliner all over your face. Luckily, someone was looking out for us someone created this stamp eyeliner that will give us the perfect wing in seconds! Stamp eyeliners are basically those markers that you had back in 1st grade that stamped cool shapes, but instead of stamping stars on your friends’ faces, these markers stamp wings for your eyes. They’re a godsend! Get yours from Amazon.
5. Master Contour Stick
Have you ever wanted to try contouring, but didn’t ever do it because you were clueless on how to? Same! Thankfully, I came across the Master Contour Stick this week and it’s made contouring super easy. The stick is half contour, half highlight, and that’s it. You literally can’t mess up, and it takes just 3 steps to make your face defined and gorgeous(er). Use this chart to help you learn where to apply everything on your face. Try the Master Duo Stick here!
6. Kiss Press-On Manicure
I don’t think I’ve used press-on nails since I was about 12 years old, but I like how these look like something I’d get from a salon at half the price! They come in a lot of different colors, lengths, shapes, and sizes so you can find exactly what you want, too! It took me 30 minutes from start to finish to get all of the nails glued to my fingers, but two days later they are still going strong and they should last up to two weeks! The bad news is that they are terrible for your nails, so you might have to save them for special occasions. Let’s be twins and get yours here!
7. Eyebrow Gel
I love this eyebrow brush because it only takes a few strokes to get perfectly groomed and filled brows! You don’t have to spend 20 minutes trying to fill them perfectly, and the look is very natural in the end. This brush is also perfect for people who are losing eyebrow hair or need a little more volume in general. You can try the OG Gimme Brow or a less expensive version that I also love from Wet n’ Wild!
8. Sheet Mask
I’m sure you’ve seen these all over the internet and social media, but if you haven’t tried a sheet mask yet, boy you’re missing out! Coming up with a good skincare routine takes time, research, and a lot of money which is why I like to use these masks because you can buy ones with different purposes and they always leave my skin feeling soft, tight, and clean. The best part is that you can use them in the bubble bath or while watching your shows. What more do you need than beautifying yourself while watching some Vanderpump Rules drama?! Try my favorite brand from Target!
9. Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer
Okay, so I’ve never actually used one of these before, but I really want to because, as all of you ladies probably know, cleaning your makeup brushes takes a lot of time. It’s really messy, the drying part takes an eternity, and you need to do it often. But this lil gadget washes and dries your brushes within minutes! So you shouldn’t have any worries when it’s time to freshen up your bristles again. It’s a lazy girl’s dream! Try the original StylPro cleaner and dryer from Amazon.
10. Magnetic Lashes
I saved the best for last! I’ve been obsessed with magnetic lashes lately, and they’re just the same as any other set of false eyelashes except they use magnets to attach to your lash line instead of glue. The major upside of using magnetic lashes is that they take a short amount of time to apply, there’s no mess to clean up if you make a mistake, and you get a natural look almost like lash extensions that you can put on or take off whenever you want! You basically “snap” them on over your real lashes to make them look longer, fuller, etc. FYI: The reviews online aren’t very good, but the more you practice, the better you get at it and the faster you can apply them. It takes me about 3 minutes to apply them both now! My favorite are these from Target!
Whew! That was a lot of goodness that you just took in. Don’t let me stop you though – GO SHOP GIRL!
