In our increasingly busy lives, everyone is looking for those things that help us move faster. Here is look at some cosmetics that will keep you looking fresh, while being portable, practical and spill proof.

Cosmetics these days not only should look good, but should also be practical.

"These compact, cost -effective cosmetics can go into your makeup bag or purse, helping you freshen up during the day at work or when you're headed out after work," said Nina Judar of Good Housekeeping.

Good Housekeeping says a cover up from Pixie is not only a foundation and concealer, but provides SPF 28 protection too.

"Keep the first aid beauty healing stick tucked away in your bag and you can combat rashes and other irritated skin conditions with anti-inflammatory hydrocortisone," said Nina Judar of Good Housekeeping.

A brightener from Sephora is perfect when rushing from the office straight to a party.

And instead of toting around lipstick and a blush, a great stick from Supergoop can be used on both lips and cheeks. And don't forget the sunscreen even in the winter to guard against UV damage.
