7 No-Fuss Beauty Products for Women on the Go

No-fuss beauty productsNo-fuss beauty productsLast summer, I indulged in a makeover. The makeup artist was meticulous and I loved the final look and walked out of the store with a bag full of new products. The only problem? From start to finish, the makeup application took an hour and fifteen minutes. I'm lucky to have 10 minutes in the morning to apply makeup, so most of those products sit in my makeup drawer, abandoned.

In my attempt to defrump, I'm making peace with two things:

1) I need to wear some makeup

2) My beauty routine must be quick and easy

So, I've made a list of the 7 products that I think I can work into my routine without setting myself up for failure. I'm determined that these products won't go to the makeup black hole in my bathroom.

I can't remember the last time I had time to apply lip liner and lipstick, but I can usually manage to put on a tinted lipgloss at a stoplight. Mac's Tinted Lipglass in Lovechild is a great color for most skin tones.
