Keep It Simple, Silly!
I don’t know about you, but when it comes to my makeup routine, I like to keep it as simple as possible. Don’t get me wrong, I love all things makeup, but I just love my sleep a little bit more.
On days when I’m in a rush from snoozing too long, I always opt for my everyday-friendly makeup routine. In simple terms, it’s the “right amount of face with absolutely no precision needed.”
If I can werk this in a moving vehicle, you can werk it anywhere!
After moisturizing and prepping my skin, I dab some NARS’ Radiant Creamy Concealer (Custard) under my eyes and on any areas with hyperpigmentation or redness. After blending the concealer onto my skin with my fingers, I apply a thin layer of Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream (Light/Medium) to the rest of my face.
Acing my brows is probably the hardest part of this go-to routine. Ya gurl ain’t no Cara Delevingne. I begin by using NYX’s Micro Brow Pencil (Taupe) to fill in my sparse brows and follow with NYX’s Jumbo Eye Pencil (Yogurt) for an extra touch of shimmer and dimension to my lids.
This stuff is amazing because it’s versatile! You can also use it on the inner corners of your eyes and for highlighting.
I then top the look off with Tarte’s Skinny SmolderEYES Waterproof Liner (Sunstone Bronze). To create a subtle, smoky look, I draw a wing and smudge it out with the liner’s sponge tip. Often times, I’ll also line my waterline with this color as well.
Finally, I comb several coats of Lancome’s Hypnose Custom Volume Mascara through my lashes to give them volume.
For finishing touches, I always reach for Benefit’s Hoola Matte Bronzer to contour the sides of my face and Benefit’s Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain for quick touches of blush and lip color. And, that’s it!
