The Lazy Girls' Guide to Back-to-School Beauty

The following post was written by Krista K. of The NYC Talon and is part of POPSUGAR Select Beauty. The NYC Talon features a variety of lifestyle topics, from beauty and fashion to food and entertainment.

Heading back to school? This back-to-school beauty guide will help you save time and make the most of your back-to-school beauty routine.

Moisturizer Madness: Moisturizing should be a crucial part of your beauty routine. Running low on time? Grab Vaseline's spray-on lotion ($8). You don't need to rub it in; all you have to do is spray and give it a couple seconds to absorb while you're fixing your hair or eating breakfast. It's no fuss, no mess, and you'll have super soft, moisturized legs.


Brandish Your BB Cream: I'm all about the multipurpose trend that has taken over the beauty aisle. BB Creams are a back-to-school beauty essential. One like Aveeno's oil-free Clear Complexion BB Cream ($17) is ideal for senstive or acne-prone skin.

Bring Your Bronzer: Don't leave your beloved Summer bronzer behind. Grab that baby and use it all year round. Bronzers make great eye shadows, and shimmery ones can also be used to highlight places like your shoulders, perking up a fading tan.

For more ways to save time, just keep reading.

It's a No-Brainer: Eye shadow quads and trios are your friends because they do the thinking for you. All you have to do is prime and apply as directed.

Cleanse, Tone, and Treat: Another multitasker must have, find yourself a cleanser that also treats and tones your skin. This not only saves time, but also saves money. My favorite is the Merlot First Crush 3-in-1 Acne Treatment ($20), which contains salicylic acid and grape seed extract, a natural acne fighter. Aveeno's Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser ($8) is also a great pick, and available at most drugstores.

Look Polished: Not everybody is skilled at creating mind-blowing nail art, so for days when your talons need a little primping, grab some Impress nails ($8) or a nail dress set. You'll have gorgeous nails in as little time as it takes to brush your teeth.

BB Cream For Your Hair: Take care of your hair with my new favorite multipurpose product: Pantene's Ultimate 10 BB Creme ($7) for your hair. It can be used on wet or dry hair and works as a heat protectant, a styler, a frizz tamer, a shine product, a detangler, a repairer, a strengthener, and more. I love the concept of a BB cream for hair, and it'll definitely save you time during your hair routine.
