20+ Beauty Products That Will Trick People Into Thinking You Actually Tried

Calling all lazy girls out there that can't be bothered to contour, or wear fake lashes because that would require far too much effort.

Just because you don't feel like doing a full-face of makeup, doesn't mean you can't find a five minute beauty regime that works for you. There are some incredible products out there, made especially with low-maintenance ladies in mind!

Washing, toning, and moisturizing your face, followed by applying sunscreen and then makeup, is going to take up way too much of your time.

Why not just moisturize, put on sunscreen, and add coverage at the same time?

Adding a little bit of shimmer to your cheek bones, nose, and even collarbones can make a huge difference. In under five minutes, you can add a ton of dimension to your face, and bring out your best features.

Ponytail Extensions.

Clip-in extensions can take hours to put in properly, and may not end up looking completely natural. While permanent hair extensions are costly and take hours to install.

In the interest of saving time and $$, try a synthetic ponytail extension. Simply wrap it around your own ponytail, and go.

Lash extensions.


Eyelash glue is incredibly difficult to use, especially if you don't typically wear false eyelashes.Lash extensions are the ideal solution to the glue problem — with no mascara required!

They also keep your eyes looking glamorous 24/7, which we love!

Batiste dry shampoo.

I have no idea how some girls wash their hair every day, or even every other day. But for the rest of us, dry shampoo is our best friend.

Regular towels can leave your hair looking like Monica's from Friends after her trip to Barbados: frizzy as hell.

Try using a Lisse Luxe hair towel instead. It combats frizz, so that your hair can air-dry smoothly.

Hot rollers.


Girls who have time to curl their hair every morning are truly a mystery to me.

But hot rollers are the best way to achieve voluminous curls without damaging your hair too much, or taking up too much of your time!
