There are days when you have all the time for makeup and then there are days when you simply do not!! There are days where I would rather stay in bed then get ready for school or work so I’ve come up with an easy makeup routine so that I can still look put together, even if I woke up late!!!
Above is the makeup that I find important for this easy look. I like to wear foundation and concealer because it gives me the best coverage but a BB Cream or CC Cream would also be very beneficial for this. I also added my foundation brush and beauty blender because I prefer to use a brush and it helps spread the foundation faster. I use my beauty blender in order to smooth out my makeup after using the brush and this has made my makeup look way better!! So in the morning when you are rushing you can spread the foundation fast with the brush and then smooth it all out with the beauty blender and it make the process so much faster. I also set it in with a translucent powder since I tend to get oily. I also use a primer on my face but I forgot to include it in the picture!
For my lips I simply use the Candy Cane ChapStick and it taste good and gives me a great shine!!
I also always like to use bronzer to contour my cheeks and this one by NYC in Sunny is cheap and is great because it is 100% matter. If I have time I will also use the blush and highlighter, but if I don’t, I’m happy with the bronzer.
For eyebrows I find that it takes me longer to use an eyebrow pencil so for days when I am in a hurry, powders work best. Recently, I have not had time to stock up on eyebrow pencil or powder so I improvised and used my Naked Basics Palatte. I used the last two colors Faint and Crave since I have dark eyebrows.
Finally, I just put a coat or two of mascara and I don’t use a curler when I’m in a hurry because my eyelashes go up enough that I do not necessarily need to curl them.
This usually takes me 10 mins and with practice, I’m sure I can go faster! Foundation is probably what would take me the longest out of this routine.
