Must-have beauty products should be quick, simple, and give great results through minimal effort.

6. Mascara

A simple coat of mascara can really make your eyes pop, even if you don't have the time or inclination for eye shadows and liner. Mascara comes in a variety of colors ranging from blue to brown or black as well as waterproof, volumizing, and lash extending features. While finding the right brand and features are really based on personal preference, a quick coat of mascara on your upper lashes is perfect for day time and takes only seconds to apply.

7. Makeup remover

Leaving your makeup on overnight can clog your pores and leave your skin looking dull, so no makeup arsenal is ever complete without an oil-free makeup remover. Whether you prefer a liquid version or a ready-to-go pad or towelette, it's important to find a makeup remover that is gentle on your skin yet ensures you'll go to bed with clean, makeup-free skin. You can also pick up a makeup remover specifically designed to help with eye makeup, like shadows, liners, and mascara that can be more difficult wash off than foundation or blush.

8. Leave-in Conditioner

Leave-in conditioners are a great beauty aide for almost every type of hair. They add moisture, make hair more manageable by getting rid of tangles, and are super easy to use. Just apply your leave-in conditioner of choice after a shower and you're ready to go.

Some hair products even have leave-in conditioners built in, so before you purchase a separate product, check your other styling products for ingredients like glycerin, which will usually add enough moisture on their own without you having to apply more. When choosing a leave-in conditioner, try to find one that is oil-free as conditioners that contain oil can weigh hair down or leave it looking greasy.
