Another dual-purpose option for trimming time off your regimen is a tinted moisturizer. Stila Sheer Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 - Tone provides full, lightweight coverage that heals and illuminates the skin. Use it in the morning instead of foundation — or after midday gym visits, suggests makeup artist Paula Dorf in Shape. First though, cleanse your face with a moist cleansing cloth, Dorf notes. Mustela Facial Cleansing Cloths With PhysiObebe remove sweat, dirt and oil from pores and soften skin, leaving it primed for the tinted moisturizer. "This complements your natural, after-gym flush, giving you an even healthier glow," Dorf adds.
For the additional advantage of removing your makeup while cleansing and toning, check out Thalgo Cleansing Water 2 in 1. Perfect for combination skin types, this product contains the antioxidant grapefruit extract and Gelidium sesquipedale extract, which hydrates, tones and revitalizes skin.
To properly use dry shampoo, just apply it to your scalp, massage it in and comb it out. Don't know what product to pick? Check out Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo. Natural oat, rice and tapioca starches absorb dirt and greasy buildup and increase volume while triclosan and tea tree oil treat and prevent dandruff. The product also has a lemon verbena fragrance, ensuring your hair smells great, too.
Find dry-shampoo sprays more appealing? Check out the nourishing, lightweight spray Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo Spray. To use, just spray the product on the roots, let it dry, shake out any excess, brush and style.
Like the twist? "If your hair is long, twist the back up and pin it to hold," Bumble and bumble salon stylist Allison Luongo tells Shape.
Is your hair too short to wear up? Bratt suggests parting hair on the side — over the center of either eye, notes Garrison — tucking it behind the ears and pulling it back with your favorite clip or headband. In just seconds, this style creates a put-together look.
Need a quality concealer? There is an Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer for every shade of skin. From a concealer for extremely fair complexions to one for medium-dark brown complexions, these products effectively conceal redness, dark circles, sun damage, broken capillaries and other blemishes for favorably flawless skin.
If time permits, brush on a fast-drying topcoat, nail care salon owner Ji Baek tells Shape. Just keep in mind that fast-drying topcoats don't last as long or offer as much shine as protective formulas, notes Jan Arnold, co-founder of a California nail care salon. For the speediest solution, try a 2-in-1 polish and topcoat, writes Bratt.
