My 5 Minutes Makeup Routine

I love a good makeup look on any given occasion. But, nowadays, I find it very hard to find an extra 20 minutes to slay! So, unless I want to get up 30 minutes earlier (which is almost never), I have a quick go-to makeup routine that I can get done in under 5 minutes and look naturally beautiful!

Step 1: Facial cleanse + moisturize. I’m sharing my facial cleansing routine next week on the blog!

Step 2: Prime face. I use Becca’s First Light Priming Filter. It’s very very light and I feel like nothing is on my face. I’ll only use a small dot of it for the lower half of my face.

Step 3: Eyebrows. Anastasia’s Brow Powder Duo is heaven! Honestly, if I put nothing else on, as long as my eyebrows are done, I feel good! I’ve always said eyebrows make and frame the face, so it’s important to take a bit of extra time to make sure they are on point. The palette is tiny, but it will last you a long time. Mine will last me a whole year!!! A little goes a long way.

Step 4: Concealer. I’ve tried different concealers and NARS cream concealer is hands down my favorite! (If you are looking for extra coverage, this may not be the right one for you.) It’s lightweight and provides just enough coverage for those long nights and early mornings.

Step 5: Bronzer. This isn’t a must for me, but if I want to add a little color to my face, I’ll apply a bit of bronzer. I use Milani’s Soleil Baked Powder and a little goes a long way! I’ve had this one for a years, haha! That goes to show you that I really don’t use much to add a bit of definition to my face.

Step 6: Lip Gloss. I’m in love with the Bite Lip Mask because it’s super creamy and will last me a full day - literally! I even use this as a bedtime lip moisturizer. It adds a slight bit of color to your natural lip color. When I don’t want something so creamy or heavy, I go with the IT Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Treatment. It glides on nicely and also adds a tiny bit of neutral matching color. This one lives in my purse!
