Women are professionals at multi-tasking. Have you ever seen a man apply mascara in the car? – exactly. We can’t help it; we like things that save time and work efficiently. That’s why it doesn’t make sense for us to have a 7-part nightly skincare routine or 15 different makeup products to put on in the morning. For busy women (read: all women), we’ve rounded up the best multi-tasking beauty products available in the Corridor, so you have more time to get stuff done. You’re welcome!
