The first night he stays over can be…well…awkward. Let's face it: the only women who can really pull sexy bedhead are paid to do so (and by that we mean models). Luckily, you can still get the #IWokeUpLikeThis look with just a little help. These products make it as easy as one, two, Zzz. (Look effortless all day and night with these beauty products that serve as Double-Duty Beauty Hacks.)

You want the coverage of a BB cream, but don’t want to sacrifice skincare for a dude. With Dr. Jart Night Beauty Balm ($38;, you don’t have to. The lightweight gel combines hydration and anti-aging with encapsulated color pigments that burst on contact (and self-adjust to your skin color) so you’ll look even-toned and flawless. Even better, it’s formulated sans parabens, oil, fragrances, or any other pore-clogging ingredients—so you can sleep easy!

For a gorgeously tousled, undone look on day two, take these steps before he comes over: Loosely curl your hair with a 1.5-inch curling iron, then spray your roots with a dry shampoo before bed. That way, your hair looks beachy—not greasy—when you wake up. We like Rene Furterer Naturia Dry Shampoo ($27;, which also gives hair a little lift.

Dab on a kiss-proof lip stain like Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in Shanghai Sizzle ($10; drugstores) for color that stays bright all evening. You can also blend a little of the gloss onto your cheeks with your fingertips for a subtle flush and sheen that won’t fade come morning.
