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!

Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Double-Ended Mascara And Lash Primer

I wanted to review this Tarte Lights Camera Lashes mascara as soon as I had given it enough time to trial because it is Limited Edition!

You Guys!!! You neeeeeeeeeed to try this mascara, I am in Lovvvve!!!!!!!

I had been using Dior Mascara for several years and really was not happy with their latest version so I was on the hunt for a volumizing, lengthing mascara and primer and Ta-Da!!!! I found it! This mascara and primer in one does everything and more! Can you tell I am excited?!?! Reasons I love it:

  1. The 2 in 1 is perfect for travel and the combination of the two work brilliantly together!
  2. The Primer. I have come to really like priming my lashes before applying mascara (I used the Dior primer for the last couple years, it works great but it is really expensive) and this primer for this price is brilliant!
  3. The Mascara. It applies flawlessly and evenly giving you long, volumious, thick lashes!

Coming in at $24 I think it is priced very reasonably considering you are getting two products in one package. I have used this mascara everyday for almost two months now and I just love it! I have also struggled with the taking off some mascaras especially waterproof ones and I love face that I dont have to rub the crap out of my eyes to get it off!

If you guys are on the hunt for a new mascara  I would highly, highly recommend this mascara!
