I could spend days — literally DAYS! — listing all of my stressors.
In fact, just thinking about the length of the list is totally stressing me out.
Right off the top of my head, there’s…
- April 15. Also known as tax day ’round these parts. This year will go down in history for me as the year of the Great Excel Spreadsheet Meltdown. And no, not great because it was awesome. It was bad, and all thanks to one accidental click. Forehead, meet desk. Repeat.
- Deadlines. They’re always looming, like dark, angry clouds… Yeah, it’s hard to put a good spin on the concept of deadlines. You know it. I know it. In general, they suck.
I’m sure you have your share of stressors, too. Finals, work projects, important things that absolutely must get done, lest you feel the wrath of your boss/co-workers/partner/children/demanding diva cat, and everything whittles away at your beauty time.
One word: argh.
It’s time to take some of those 24 hours back. By equipping yourself with more makeup and beauty products that multitask, you can get more done in less time.
Here are a few products to help you primp under pressure…
Clairol Nice ‘N Easy Root Touch-Up ($6.99)
I don’t know about you, but when I go to get my hair colored at the salon, it can turn into a half-day affair.
Well, when you just can’t stand staring at your roots in the mirror any longer (been there, done that!), an at-home coloring kit like Clairol’s Nice ‘N Easy Root Touch-Up ($6.99) can help, especially if you can’t/don’t want to spend hours in a salon. This one comes in 14-shades, so chances are there’s one for you.
COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation ($9.35)
I’m not one to shy away from multi-step makeup, but sometimes, I simply have to. If time doesn’t permit my regular primer, foundation and concealer, multitasking makeup like COVERGIRL’s $9.35 Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation saves the day.
A liquid formula combining primer, foundation and concealer in a single bottle, it shaves minutes off my beauty routine (I wear it in Golden Tan).
Oh, it lasts a long time, too, so your makeup will go the distance for you.
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Eye Cream and Lash Serum Duo ($24.99)
The magic of multitasking can extend to skin care as well, with products like Olay’s Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Eye Cream and Lash Serum Duo ($24.99).
It combines a hydrating eye cream with a lengthening lash serum in the same convenient tube (you just unscrew the top part). It’s also sleek enough to squeeze skinny makeup bags for primping on the go.
Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response ($7.99)
Long day or night ahead? With prescription-strength wetness protection, Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response has something to say about that. Stay dry and fresh for 10-12 hours with an odor-absorbing formula that, in the case of the Serene Citrus Scent, smells to me like a combination of baby powder and peach gummies.
