Beat the Clock: Beauty Multitaskers

Special Offer


Exfoliate: Combine three steps that tend to get cut when the clock is ticking: scrub, moisturize, perfume. Tocca Esfoliante da Corpo in Cleopatra, $32, is a hydrating body polish that softens skin with olive, safflower, and grape-seed oils, while leaving behind a delicate scent of grapefruit and cucumber.

Condition: Lotion is a necessary evil that so many women skip because putting it on is such a drag. "While it may seem cumbersome or messy, moisturizing every single day helps replenish the natural hydrating elements that impart a smooth texture and healthy appear-ance to the skin," says New York City dermatologist Dr. Hilary Reich. Check out Vaseline Aloe Fresh Spray & Go Moisturizer, $6, a spray-on lotion and skin-softening miracle that takes 10 seconds to apply and soaks right in.


Perfect: Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind: Eraser Dark Spot Concealer + Treatment, $10, has a sponge-tipped applicator that seemingly airbrushes uneven areas in seconds while vitamin C works to decrease the darkness over time, which means one day you'll be able to skip this step. Like!

Glow: Streamline your makeup routine with Pacifica Radiant Shimmer Coconut Multiples, $12, a foolproof, all-skin-tones-flattering palette. "Softly brush the bronze around the rims of the eyes," suggests bicoastal makeup artist Emily Kate Warren. "Blend the rosy hue onto cheeks and dab the pale pink shimmer on cheekbones and brow bones to highlight." Pat the coral or bronze onto lips and you're good to go.

Pout: Love the look of bold lipcolor but not stoked by the thought of having to reapply all day long? Enter Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in 400, $32. "It's genius for busy women," explains makeup artist Tim Quinn. "One application wears all day, and by 7 p.m. the color is still even, though it's worn down to a stain." The moisturizing formula even nixes the need for lip balm.
