First up is makeup! If you're the kind of girl that would rather catch some extra zzzs than wake up earlier to get ready, this is totally up your alley. We're talking 4 insanely easy steps for a look that'll make your natural beauty shine through. No brushes, no beauty blenders and you can prooobably get away with no mirrors too. That's what car windows are for, amirite?

Model Off Duty Makeup Essentials

Start off with cleansed and moisturised skin. (We're all lazy, but this is a step you must never skip morning or night!) If you've got the extra time or motivation, smooth on a primer of your choice to make your face last all day.

Step 1: Squeeze a fair amount of Glossier's Perfecting Skin Tint, $26 onto your forehead, cheeks, chin and nose. Massage the product into your skin until the liquid blends completely. Now, this stuff is seriously magic. You might be horrified by how sheer the product is the first time you put it on but after a few minutes it will settle, then you'll catch your reflection in the mirror and be taken away by how good your skin looks. And it actually looks like your skin! HG product right here. 

Step 2: Comb your brows out with a spoolie (or dry toothbrush if you haven't got any around) and brush on Glossier's Boy Brow, $16 in short upward strokes for that fresh, feathery look. This step will instantly make you look lifted in the eye area.

Step 3: Swipe 3 or 4 streaks of Benefit's Benetint, $30 onto the apples of your cheeks and blend it upwards with your fingers. Natural, rosy flush? Check. 

Step 4: Lastly, add a tint of colour to your pout with Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment, $24 and you are done! This barely there makeup will look and feel so natural your friends will wonder if you'd secretly gone on vacay without telling them! 

Nothing in the closet? Wrong. This look can pretty much be achieved with basics you already own. Basic Crop Top + Cut Offs, Jeans or Mini + Jacket + Comfy Shoes = Effortless. If your hair is not behaving... Put it in a messy bun. Or if you're ultra lazy, that's what snapbacks are for! Throw on some shades and you've reached Cool Girl Status without even trying.
