We’ve all been guilty of hitting the snooze button one-too-many times, only to be left with a solid five minutes to throw on a semi-cute outfit and some lip balm- that is if we’re lucky. Ladies, there’s no need to sacrifice your precious beauty sleep for a full face of makeup. We’ve rounded up eight easy-to-apply, miracle performing products that you can tuck into in your beauty bag for those rushed, weekday mornings. All you’ll need is one trusty makeup tool, aka fingers, for quick application plus a solid ten minutes to create a fresh faced look you could practically do in your sleep.
Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream, $40
Stop hitting the snooze button on your skincare routine. Wake up your dehydrated skin with the cooling effect of Fresh’s rose infused facial moisturizer instead.
