Your makeup routine is about to get a lot easier

No matter how much you love makeup, it's easy to get frustrated by how difficult the whole process can be. Doesn't lip liner know that it's supposed to stay on your lips? Why does hair color fade the moment you leave the salon? And is there any way to make applying false eyelashes not the most tedious process on the entire planet? These 10 products provide solutions to all your beauty woes, taking the stress out of your morning makeup routine and making you feel like some sort of beauty guru. 

Make Up Designory Black Cream Mascara

Real talk: What's mascara hiding? I mean, who really knows how much product is left in those plastic tubes? It's one of life's greatest mysteries, alongside what happened to Amelia Earhart and why did M. Night Shyamalan ghostwrite She's All ThatMake-Up Designory Black Cream Mascara has done away with all the mystique thanks to a squeezable container that lets you know exactly how much left of the creamy, lengthening formula remains.

Make Up Forever Lip Line Perfector

No matter how many times you yell at your lip color to stay put, it just won't listen. Instead, you wind up with lipstick all over your face and, bonus points, you look crazy! Make Up For Ever's Lip Line Perfector might look like one of those clear crayons you use to make designs on Easter eggs, but it's actually a genius new beauty product. It creates an invisible barrier to keep lip color from bleeding or smudging. Suddenly red lips are foolproof and all is right in the world. 

Mally Beauty Double Duty Perfect Tweezers

It's simply just not enough to do one skill anymore. Actresses sing. Singers act. Designers appear on reality shows. Reality show stars design clothing lines. Even tweezers do double duty. These tweezers from Mally have a slant tip on one end for all-around plucking, and a pointy tip on the other, for those teeny tiny baby hairs. 

Anastasia Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat

Predicament: You know your eyes are going to have to battle H2O, but your favorite mascara isn't waterproof. Whether you're headed to the beach or you're just an easier crier (hey, I get it; commercials can get real sometimes), the Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat from Anastasia is your new best friend. The colorless topcoat transforms any formula instantly waterproof without looking clumpy. Take that, unnecessarily emotional commercial for cereal. 

e.l.f. Studio Mascara & Shadow Shield

Alright, so, yes, it looks goofy, but the Studio Mascara & Shadow Shield from e.l.f. will make your eye makeup routine approximately 800 times easier. Just approximately, though. Hold the shield under your eye, and watch as it stops powder eyeshadow from falling on your cheeks. 

Sephora Shimmer Sheet Set

Oil-blotting papers are a great idea — they remove grease and oil, but they can also take off makeup. These ones from Sephora are tinted, leaving behind a bit of color so you don't have to worry about touchups. 

Rita Hazan Foaming Gloss

Your dye job has faded, but not quite enough for you to make a (expensive and time consuming) trip to the salon. Rita Hazan's Foaming Gloss boosts color with just one pouf. 

Beauty for Real Illuminating Light Up Lip Gloss

You never know where life takes you, and sometimes it takes you to a dark, shadowy place where you cannot see the makeup that you're desperately attempting to apply. Beauty for Real Illuminating Lipgloss has an LED light built into the cap, making it easy to apply or reapply just about anywhere. They also make mascaras and nail polish, should you need to touch up your manicure while hanging out in a dark alley. It happens. Don't ask.

Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral Powder

You know you're supposed to reapply sunscreen throughout the day, but it's so greasy, and you already did your makeup, and, ugh, #personproblems. Enter powder sunscreen. Peter Thomas Roth's SPF 45 formula protects your skin without messing up your makeup. Simply buff a bit into your skin, and frolic around in the sun (frolicking not required, but is highly suggested). 

Sephora Bulls Eye Lash Applicator

Whether they're for a special occasion or just because you feel like it and you're an adult and can do whatever you want, false lashes are always fun. But they're also one of the most difficult beauty products to master. Sephora's Bulls Eye Lash Applicator makes it impossibly easy to apply falsies, meaning you can have crazy long lashes whenever you like. 9 A.M. meeting, you're about to be way more glamorous.
