Let’s be honest: our lives are really busy. Gone are the days of spending two hours getting ready in the morning; now we’re lucky if we have fifteen minutes to get made up and head out the door. So we’re forced to be more efficient than ever, which mean we want products that do it all.
Enter triple-duty beauty products. Why waste time in the morning applying three different products, waiting for each one to be absorbed before going on to the next, when a single product can get the job done in a fraction of the time? It’s the ultimate beauty timesaving hack. In that spirit, we’ve rounded up some of the best triple-duty beauty products for your brows, face, hair, body, and nails.
This awesome product is a moisturizer, makeup, and anti-aging cream—plus it has SPF 30. The tint gives your skin a healthy, subtle glow that’s aided by the moisturizer’s hydrating properties, and wear is fabulous. You won’t have to layer moisturizer, sunscreen, and a BB cream in the morning anymore (although do be sure to add extra sunscreen if you’ll be outside for extended periods of time).
2. L’Oreal Brow Stylist Sculptor, $10.
This product has everything you need to shape and set your brows. You can brush them slightly upwards with the attached brush, fill them in lightly with the tinted pencil (which comes in several shades), and make the entire look last all day with the finishing wax pencil on the other end.
3. Smashbox Telephoto 3-in-1 Face Brush, $39.
This is a great brush if you want to save space in your makeup bag and shorten the time you spend cleaning various brushes. It’s ideal for one purpose–applying liquid or powder foundation–but has the ability to provide full, medium, and sheer coverage. It’s easy to use: just twist it up or down to adjust how much coverage you get out of your foundation. Plus, it’s incredibly soft.
You can use this polish as both your base coat and your top coat, and it works well to strengthen your nails as well. The time you put into your weekend mani-pedi ritual will be cut in half once you start using this multi-tasker (and you’ll save space on your nail polish shelf as well).
5. Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50, $12-$28.
This new facial spray is a lifesaver. It sets makeup, controls oil and shine, and it even delivers a whopping SPF 50 for sun protection. Now you can finally apply (and reapply) SPF without ruining your makeup–in fact you can do it while making your makeup look better.
This micellar water will replace your makeup remover wipes, facial cleanser, and toner. It easily removes makeup, effectively cleanses your skin, and tones your skin for a brighter complexion and tighter pores. You don’t even need to use water afterwards to rinse.
7. Drybar Triple Sec 3-in-1, $26.
This spray for your hair gives volume, texture, and also acts as a dry shampoo. It absorbs oil, leaves hair smelling and looking great, and even has UV protectors to shield your hair from the fading effects of ultraviolet radiation.
8. Stila One Step Correct, $36.
This serum is made up of three color-correcting primers that help to reduce redness, prep skin for makeup, and make skin bright and dewy. We also love the extra hold this gives our makeup, even throughout long work days.
This awesome bath-time product comes in an assortment of delicious scents such as Melon Daiquiri, Coconut Frosting and Raspberry Sorbet. You might as well get two–we suggest Cinnamon Buns for winter and Senorita Margarita for summer–since you’ll have enough room thanks to all the bathroom space you’ll save with this multi-tasker.
10. Tarte Park Ave Princess Contour Palette, $34.
This 3-in-1 contouring palette contains bronzer, a pale pink blush, and a champagne gold highlighter that is shimmery but never sparkly. It’s everything you need for a fast and easy contoured and highlighted look.
11. CK One 3-In-1 Face Makeup SPF 8, $30.
This revolutionary foundation is more than just a foundation: it’s also a facial serum and primer. It moisturizes skin and nourishes it with antioxidants while making your makeup look smoother, last longer, and stay shine-free. With this product, you no longer have to wait for your daily moisturizer to dry and your primer to be absorbed before applying your foundation.
