I love a quick, simple and natural looking makeup routine. My everyday prep only takes 10-15 minutes depending on how detailed I want to be. I thought I would share my favorite products that I am using right now since I have been trying out a few new things.
My first step is to always, always, always moisturize, I make sure to apply before bed and first thing in the morning. Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer is the holy grail of all primers, even when I have a no-makeup day, I still put this silky primer on for a near flawless look. Bare Minerals Well-Rested Face & Eye Brightener does just that, I like to apply a few dabs under my eyes and a little on my cheeks for a natural, fresh glow. Bare Minerals Blemish Remedy Concealer is perfect for those little problem areas, I also apply around my nose and under eyes for those darker spots. E.l.f Essentials Shimmering Facial Whip is my go-to highlighter, I blend it onto my cheek bones for a dewy glow... I know the "shimmer" description can sound scary- but it is very subtle. E.l.f. Expert Liquid Liner is what I have been using for years and years, I go through liquid eyeliner rapidly... so at $2.00 per tube this is my all time favorite beauty product- not to mention it lasts all day! Chanel Illuminating Powder is a subtle bronzer that gives you a natural sun-kissed look, I like to brush a few strokes across my cheeks for a finishing touch.
