It’s no secret that I am a beauty aficionado. Yes, I love beauty products of all shapes and sizes but despite being a beauty junkie, I’m also fairly low-maintenance (read: lazy). As I work from home, I do not feel the need to wear a full face of makeup on a daily basis. Some days, a deodorant, body lotion, face moisturizer with SPF and a lipbalm is all it takes to get me out the door. That said, I admit that when I take an extra 5 minutes to add a swipe of lip color, eyeliner and a BB cream/lightweight foundation, I do feel more put together and confident!
Dealing with acne and wrinkles, I know I have to keep up with a good skincare routine, so I spend at least 5 minutes every night to properly cleanse, hydrate and treat my skin to my favorite serums even if I am too exhausted. But with my overall no-fuss regimen, I am all for multitasking products that help simplify my beauty routine…maximum impact for minimal effort! Yeah, I am talking low-maintenance beauty essentials! Below are some of my favorites…
L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation – This complexion perfector is all I need for lightweight, one-step coverage that looks fresh and natural. And I love its dewy smooth finish…it has been one of my go-to products this summer! Perfect to get a polished #nomakeupmakeup look with no fuss or muss!
Drunk Elephant T. L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum – This 12 % glycolic serum has earned a permanent spot in my skincare must-haves list! Infused with a powerful blend of AHA’s (glycolic acid and lactic acid), salicylic acid, plus antioxidants, it’s a multi-tasking wonder that exfoliates & resurfaces dull, congested skin, treats sun damage and also prevent clogged pores, blackheads and blemishes. With a lightweight gel texture, it layers easily under other products in my routine and gets the job done without any irritation or stinging. It also keeps my acne breakouts under control!
Suntegrity Skincare Lip C.P.R. – With the vibrant color of a lipstick and the hydration plus sun protection of a lip balm, this all-natural creamy lipstick ticks all the right boxes for me! It provides broad-spectrum SPF 30 with mineral sunscreen zinc oxide and adds a pop of color in one easy step. I have the shade Sunrise Peach, a rosy golden peach that’s perfect for a natural everyday look!
Everpro Gray Away Root Touch Up Powder – This is my go-to solution to get rid of those unwanted gray roots instantly! The mineral-infused colored powder compact comes with a sponge applicator for easy, hassle-free application. It takes mere seconds to apply and the color blends perfectly without any greasy mess or dusting! And the color washes out easily with shampoo. The cute compact (with mirror) is also perfect for on the go touch-ups!Low-Maintenance Beauty Essentials To Get You Out The Door Quickly! Click To Tweet

Made with oily skin in mind, it also doubles as a perfect base for makeup while adding a touch of radiance. Here is my detailed review in case you missed it.
IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain – I am not the one to re-apply lipstick every 20 minutes! This lip stain from It cosmetics has major pigment power to add a pop of color without the hassle of a high maintenance lipstick or the stickiness of a gloss! It glides on like a lightweight serum and stays put without leaving my lips dried out.
Brush On Block SPF 30 Invisible Mineral Powder Sunscreen – Sunscreen made easy! This translucent mineral powder sunscreen is totally invisible once applied…no greasy mess or white cast! It fits easily in my purse, making it perfect for on-the-go sun protection.I can put it on over or under makeup and re-apply with ease, plus it’s also sweat & water resistant. I have been toting this one around all summer!
