10 Beauty Products Every Secretly Trashy Girl Should Own

So you don’t shower every day. You wash your hair a couple of times a week. You roll out of bed 1o minutes before you have to be out of the house. Some weekends, you don’t even change your clothes. Some days, you go to work  wearing clothes you slept in. Ain’t no shame in any of this, girl.

You work hard, you play hard, and you need beauty products that go hard.

It’s not difficult to look put-together if you have the correct tools— simple, fast-acting, seemingly effortless. Allow me to drop some knowledge on you, from one secret garbage can to another:

The best part about this product is that it’s subtle, which means your quick application of it won’t look like clown makeup, even if you’re smearing it with the help of your rearview mirror while you’re driving using your knees, late for work, again. The highlighter is just the right amount of sheen and cream, and the stick applicator design means it’s made for travel.
