My 5 Product Everyday Makeup Look
My mornings are usually quite zen now that I’ve created a routine that works for me for work or going to class. I am a creature of habit, which is a blessing and a curse. I love routine and having enough time in the morning to go through it! The real trick to really getting down to a 5 product makeup look is having products that are multi-use. Maybe all you need to do is use a different brush, but I prefer to use my hands when possible. I DEPEND on these products to get me ready in literally under five minutes and out the door looking fresh faced and feeling BOMB. No one will be able to tell that you have only woken up maybe 20 minutes ago :)
I’m sharing my five product makeup look that is my absolute go-to! These are my favorite products right now and the items I reach for when I’m just need something natural but also pretty. I am all about makeup that looks like skin and just enhances our natural beauty. Whatever makes you feel your most beautiful is what is most important every single day. This 5 product makeup look is ideal for when your traveling or know you will have very limited time to get ready! The less stuff I have to think about and pack, the better!
(Don’t forget to wash your face and apply your moisturizer and eye cream! Good skincare always makes makeup apply better!)
1. Apply NARS’ Radiant Creamy Concealer under eyes and to spot conceal any blemishes
The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is unstoppable! I tap this into my under eyes with my ring finger or, if I have time, a dampened Beauty Blender, to conceal dark circles. I also use the same method to spot conceal any red spots or blemishes I may have at the moment.
2. Buff the Bare Minerals Foundation into your skin to perfect the complexion and to set concealer into place
I have used Bare Minerals Original Powder Foundation since I started using makeup in middle school! It’s the best for my sensitive skin. This stuff truly LOVES your skin and doesn’t clog pores. I love the look Bare Minerals powder foundations give my skin. My skin always looks beautifully radiant, never greasy, with this foundation and the coverage is completely buildable. In the summer, I switch over to their matte powder foundation to stay matte all day long. (I wear shade Medium Beige in both powders)
3. Apply Blush/Bronzer to cheeks and eyes to add glow and dimension to the face
Now this is a great beauty “hack”! Blush and bronzer can also be eyeshadow if you forgot to pack your eyeshadow while traveling, or maybe you just don’t want to reach for it while rushing to get ready in the morning. I like to apply this Benefit bronzer, or I’ll use this pretty, peachy-nude Becca blush into the crease and eyelid. to my the hallows of my cheeks to add some color but also a slight “contour” to the face! I also blend it down the jawline for added dimension. I will then take a blending brush and blend some of that same bronzer, or blush, into the crease of my eyelid. This trick really makes the eyes look more awake and defined, while keeping all the tones on your face very neutral but pretty!
4. Define and Lock-In Brows with Benefit Gimme Brow
If you usually would take 10 minutes to fill in your brows, you can throw away that brow pencil now because Benefit has a product that only takes 30 seconds to use…Gimme Brow! My eyebrow waxer recommended this product to me and I’m obsessed! It defines the brow and fills it in just in a few swipes of this stuff. If you have thinner brows, this product is gonna be great for you! If you have thick, curly brows like me, this is all you will ever need. It locks down the brow hairs so they wont curl up during the day as well as fill in any sparse areas. You will have fleek-y brows all day long with this stuff!
5. Finish off with Bobbi Brown’s Eye Opening Mascara
I received Bobbi Brown’s Eye Opening Mascara as a free sample a few months ago and I went back to Nordstrom and bought the full size immediately. My lashes are really problematic. I can really only wear certain mascaras because my eyes get extremely irritated very easily. This product doesn’t irritate me for whatever reason! Probably because it’s free of harsh chemicals, yay Bobbi!! This mascara also comes off easily with a makeup wipe or gentle cleanser. It delivers the perfect amount of lift and curl for my lashes and the pigment is AMAZING. So great for girls who have light lashes like me!
Let me know if you tried any of these products and what you think! If you have any multi-use products you think I’d love please share in the comments!! Cant wait to hear what you think :)
