Who really has time to put on a full face of makeup everyday before work? I know with my busy lifestyle I don’t have time, so I have come up with a easy routine that takes me about 15 minutes to do my makeup. Some of the products are high end and some are drug store.
First I use a foundation according to how my skin feels. In the summer my skin tends to be more oily so I usually use L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Foudation and in the fall and winter my skin usually is dry so I use Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation.
To set my face use Maybelline Superstay Better Skin powder. I love the way it leaves my skin looking. Now I usually don’t contour my face anymore, I have been bronzing a lot more instead. I just feel like it gives you a sun kissed look all the time and for bronzing I use Elf Bronzer Palette it matches my skin perfectly and its not too orange. One of my favorite steps when applying make up is highlighting my face and for that I use the Becca Skin Perfector in Opal. I love highlighting because it brings out my cheek bones and I can actually make my lips look plumped.
For the eyes I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. I use Raw Sienna and Burnt Orange for my crease color and Cyprus Umber in the outer corner. Then use Primavera on the eyelid. I have been using this look a lot lately.
Finally my lashes and brows are the last thing I usually do for his routine because its fast. My favorite mascara lately has been L’Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black mascara just because it leaves my lashes long and full. I have tried a lot of different drugstore and high end brands and I always tend to go back to this mascara. For my brows I just use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel to tint my brows a little bit and set them at the same time.
Last but not least I pop on some lip gloss or lipstick and I’m done. Below is what the look looks like all together.
