In between meetings, presentations, events, and parties, life as a twentysomething can be pretty hectic. Here are ten beauty products to have with you at the office to make sure your hair, skin, and makeup are always on point.
1. Dry Shampoo
Has your long commute left your hair looking less than desirable? Or did you choose to sleep in instead of washing your hair at the crack of dawn? When that happens, the best tool to fake clean hair is dry shampoo. Tip: Go for a volumizing one to add more oomph to your look!

2. Double-Duty Concealer
Oh, no! You suddenly spot a red zit minutes before an important presentation! Worse, all those sleepless nights preparing for it has left you with purple bags under your eyes! Now, that's where your double-duty concealer comes in. Make sure you pick a shade that matches your skin tone for seamless blending.

3. Killer Nude Lipstick
Everyone, including us, knows the power of a red lip. But when you want to quickly pull your MOTD together, a nude lip will do just that without clashing with your shadow or your blush.

4. Waterproof Mascara
Need your lashes to stay in tip-top shape all day? Reach for waterproof mascara! It will hold a curl better, and won't leave you with dreaded racoon eyes in the middle of the day.

5. Clean Spoolie(s)
Speaking of mascaras, you wouldn't want clumpy lashes, right? Which is why you should always have one or two clean spoolies stashed in your drawers. Every time you think your lashes aren't looking their best, spruce them up by fanning them out with a spoolie.

6. Spray-On Sunscreen
Just because you spend your entire day at the office, doesn't mean you're safe from the dangerous rays of the sun. News flash: Your computers and phones emit UV rays, too. But let's be real—who has the patience to apply sunscreen every two hours? As such, go for a spray-on sunscreen that makes reapplication a breeze. Plus, if it's hydrating, it'll prevent your skin from drying out, too. Yay!

7. Budge-Proof Eyeliner
Whether you love a nice, sharp cat eye or just want a subtly lined lid, you better make sure your liner is smudge-proof, water-proof, and transfer-proof; otherwise, it might move and bleed all over your face.

8. Hand Cream
Yes, the AC in your office dries out your skin, but it does the same thing to your hands, too! Don't neglect them by hydrating once in a while with your favorite hand cream—they'll look and feel amazing, promise.

9. Cotton Buds
Is your mascara flaking? Or is that wing not as pointy as you'd like it to be? There's only one solution for all that: cotton buds. These little tools are super essential among makeup artists, and for good reason. They can clean up any makeup mistakes you may have made, without ruining the entire look!

10. Micellar Water
That said, if you'd like to redo your MOTD to take it from day to night, micellar water will be your new BFF. Best part: It won't dry out your skin!
