I don’t know if there’s one mom who wouldn’t appreciate an extra set of hands, especially when you’re juggling the little one while trying to get things done. Even if the baby hasn’t arrived yet, you can probably appreciate products that will help streamline your routine by helping you multitask.
I have a deep appreciation for beauty products that I can use quickly to achieve a look to make me look ready to take on the world with little effort. Read on to discover five of my favorite one-handed beauty products that can make getting ready easier while juggling other responsibilities… or people!
Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler
If you haven’t seen my review and demo of this handy tool (pun intended), drop everything and do it now! This is a blow dryer and paddle brush fusion that lets you brush through your hair while simultaneously blow drying it straight. It works surprisingly well on my thick, wavy hair and cut my drying time in half! Watch me use it for the first time in the video below:
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiant Touch Concealer
One of the most popular concealers around the world (one is sold every 10 seconds around the world), this click pen dispenses product through the brush tip, so you can get the job done with the golden tube alone. Brighten the under-eyes, highlight and conceal with this all-in-one product.
Pixi Quick Fix Powder
Perfect for both setting your makeup and taking with you on the go for touch ups, this translucent powder comes with a built-in powder puff for easy application. This is a godsend for oily skin, as it keeps oil at bay while making your makeup last.
The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Velvet Stick
This chubby crayon a two-in-one that you can use to add color to both your lips and cheeks. Better yet? No brushes involved with this brush! Just dab the color onto your cheeks and you can blend easily with your fingers. You’re left with a beautiful natural blush look that took less than a minute!
Pur Minerals Cameo Contour Stick
Another multi-tasking and one-handed wonder, this contour stick gives you a bronzer and highlight with a creamy texture that blends out flawlessly. Use your fingers to blend, or use the included beauty sponge to get an airbrushed look.
