If there’s ever a time to get a little lax with your beauty routine, it’s when 0-degree wind chills make your eyes water, causing your makeup to run, and when avoiding hat hair means frostbitten ears for the next hour. Plus, it’s just too darn cold sometimes to get motivated to do anything more than a swipe of mascara in the morning. So, here’s a quick guide to winter beauty for lazy girls featuring our favorite products that deliver gorgeous results in seconds and are guaranteed to prevent any winter beauty mishaps.

Living Proof Full Root Lifting Spray

While knit beanies have definitely been a major trend this winter, there’s no denying that they can leave your hair flat and lifeless after only a few minutes of wear. The solution: a spray with polymers that target the roots to lift them and help them stay stiff, but without the crunchy, hairspray feel. Spray the roots pre-blow dry for volume that lasts.

Stila Smudge Pots

A two-in-one eyeliner and eyeshadow, this unique gel formula is perfect for that imperfect eye makeup look–kind of like Kristen Stewart’s signature morning-after makeup that’s actually freshly applied. Plus, it stays on forever. Simply layer a few lines on your upper lids with an eye shadow brush and you’re good to go.

Benefit Benetint

We know, we know, you’ve probably heard the wonders of Benetint a thousand times, but it really is the perfect lip product for winter laziness. First, the stain delivers enough color to merit not having to wear lipstick and stays all day so you can dab on some chapstick without shame. Second, there’s an applicator brush attached to the cap! It really doesn’t get much easier than that.

Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF Sunscreen

The name of this product alone tells you that it’s basically a one-stop shop for all of your daytime skincare needs. You can essentially replace your moisturizer, sunscreen, primer and foundation with this one product, giving you more time to focus on other time-consuming steps of your morning routine–like treating yourself to a massive latte with extra whip.
