This week’s Makeup Wars is quite easy for me – the Five Minute Face. Why so easy, you ask? Probably because I have to get ready for work everyday before the sun comes up! I can barely see what I am doing anyways, so you better believe I don’t spend a lot of time on it! This is what I reach for when I am running late – a super easy quite, put together but simple look.
I start by reaching for my favorite BB cream. I can’t tell you how many times I have purchased this – five, maybe? While I am waiting for that to dry down (I never wear powder) I start my eyes. This is where I really save time. Normally I love doing an elaborate eye look, but when I am running late I reach for the perfect base shade to even out my lid and an eyeliner that’s easily smudged with a finger and I’m good to go! I also reach for a mascara that packs a lot of punch – since I’m not wearing eyeshadow, it really helps put together the simple eye look! And I now that I am used to filling my eyebrows, I can’t skip my favorite brow pencil. For my cheeks I use the perfect blush – so rosy tan that it could almost be a bronzer. A pop of color on my lips and I’m set!
Here’s the products I use:
- SKIN79 Super+ Beblesh Balm BB Cream VIP Gold Collection
- MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly
- Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed
- butter LONDON Wink Eye Pencil in Brown Sugar*
- Maybelline Volum’ Express Big Eyes Mascara
- IT Cosmetics YBBB Universal Brow Powder Pencil*
- IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain in Je Ne Sais Quoi*
