My 5 Minute Makeup Routine

Life has been so hectic lately that it only made sense to share my quick and easy 5 minute makeup routine for the days when getting ready seems like another task on your long list of things to do!

This look is perfect for those mornings when you want to feel put together but don’t want to put in a lot of effort! I literally timed myself and was off to the grocery store minutes later(note the sports bra and tank!!)  Also you’ll notice no defined eyebrows ahhh!!!! hahaha! In 5 minutes I could not do them justice so they gone! (I just added a bit of tinted brow gel to fill them in a bit!)

Ok here we go!

Foundation

Depending on the amount of coverage you want a tinted primer may be enough however I have acne spots and redness I wanted covered up so I just went over my face lightly with the Loreal Lumi Cusion Foundation (my full review here), applied with a beauty blender for a bit more coverage. This foundation is buildable depending on the extent of coverage you would like and gives a beautiful glow perfect for the spring and summer months!

Concealer

Use the concealer under your eyes to brighten and over any problem areas (redness/acne etc). I used one of my favourite concealers to ever grace the planet, the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Concealer  (my full review here) for this quick makeup look! Once you have finished blending you concealer, set face with any setting powder. I am currently trying the Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Cameo.

Bronzer

I have been obsessing over Matte Bronzers lately especially after coming into the world of highlighters and I couldn’t resist the Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer in the shade Milkshake. It is the perfect shade for light skin tones and did i mention it smells like chocolate!! Scrumptious!! Adding a matte bronzer will give your face some dimension without looking done up or contoured!

Highlighter

You all know I am now on the highlighter band wagon so for this look I wanted to add a bit of glow with Becca Cosmetics Champagne Pop. This highlighter is perfection and I love the combination with this bronzer, enough of a subtle glow to look healthy and put together!

Mascara

I love me some mascara and don’t leave home without it. For this look I once again used another one of my go tos, the Tarte’s Lights Camera Lashes mascara and primer in one (full review here)! You go with what you know right!

Lipgloss

If I am running some errands or going to the grocery store I prefer to have a very light glossy lip. That way it is super quick and easy and still looks like you put some effort in lol! For this look I used the Buxom Full On Lip Cream in the shade White Russian, literally the perfect nudey pink!

I hope you guys enjoyed this look and have an awesome week!

August Favourites

I am a little late but better late than never right! While the rest of the world is enjoying a smooth transition into September, It has been colder than usual here in Edmonton so my August Favourites are more geared towards fall and adjusting to the colder temperatures!

Hope you enjoy! xo

Matt & Nat Clarke in Cocoa (here here) The moment I saw this bag online I knew I had to have it, thanks to Miss Boss I was able to get the colour I wanted and it is perfection. The rich chocolate brown enhances any outfit and this will be a favourite for this fall season for sure!

Jackson Rowe Olive in Hunter (here & here): It is no secret I am love this olive green colour for fall and this scarf is so comfortable and looks amazing with every outfit casual or dressy. Jackson Rowe has become one of my favourite Canadian brands this year and you can shop them locally here at Miss Boss!

Chanel Rouge Allure in Passion: I am loving red lipstick and my absolute favourite is this Chanel lippy! It is the perfect red, goes on flawlessly and last all day! If you are looking for a classic lipstick this is your girl!

Buxom Lip Polish in Samantha: This has been my favourite lip gloss for over a year now, I fell off the gloss train for a bit as I was loving the liquid lipsticks but this month I got back on the train and this gloss is the perfect nude with just a hint of pink! Perfect for any time of day!

Kat Von D Shade & Light Contour Palette: I also had this palette as a favourite in June but it is worth a repeat! I use this palette every day whether I am looking to contour or just for some structure! Out of all the kits I have used this is by far the most creamiest, pigmented palette and is perfect for contour newbies or seasoned professionals!

Eliasz & Ella Tiger Eye Necklace: This stunning tiger eye necklace is a perfect addition to any fall wardrobe. The stone itself captures lighting and different angles, shining more brown is some light and more yellow in other.. like I said stunning! This necklace will go fabulously with any fall outfit!

Toms Desert Burlap Wedge: With the cold weather approaching I have been reaching for booties and these burlap wedges are gorgeous, comfortable and help out a good cause, what more can you ask for?!!
