5 Minute Makeup Routine

by 97495429 May 14, 2015

I've never been much of a makeup person. I don't really get into the crazy trends, colors or over-the-top looks.  I prefer my look be be fresh faced and effortless, almost like I'm not wearing makeup. Don't get me wrong – I love makeup. I think it's wonderful for enhancing our already beautiful features and making us feel more confident. But I like to keep my routine pretty simple – under 5 minutes simple, to be exact...

I start by applying a layer of Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm (BB cream) to my entire face. I love that this BB cream is an all-in-one. It has SPF 45, moisturizer, buildable coverage and skin nourishing peptides. My skin has drastically improved since I started using this daily about a year or two ago. Sometimes I'll mix it with a moisturizer if my skin is dry or I want more of a dewy, sheer coverage. I let this set for about a minute and apply a swipe or two of Estée Lauder Sumptuous Bold Lifting mascara. I love long, bold eyelashes and this stuff does the trick without clumping. It's also super easy to remove at the end of the day.

Next, I apply NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (in Vanilla) under my eyes in an inverted triangle shape (dark circles be gone!) and on any blemishes on my face using a brush like this. It's hands down the best concealer I've ever used.  It brightens and reflects light (perfect for my dark circles) and is full coverage without being cake-y. After concealer, I dust the apples of my cheeks, my nose, top of my forehead and chin/jaw line with a little bronzer. Lately I've been using Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess powder or Benefit's Hoola bronzer.

I finish everything off with a spritz or two of Mario Badescu's Rosewater & Aloe spray to instantly brighten, moisturize and set my makeup, and a dab of Korres lip butter (I use wild rose) or Benefit's Benetint lip & cheek stain.
