Recently (and don’t ask me why) a lot of y’all have asked about my make up routine. Probably because smeared mascara and left over foundation from yesterday is really pretty. 😉 HA! So anyways, as promised I’m sharing my little “skin routine” and the make up I use. Now, I ain’t no beauty blogger so I literally don’t know much about these things, I just know what works for me and the products I use on my 5 minute make up routine.
Now, I wear make up like oh…twice a week, if that. Generally just when I have a shoot or meeting I actually have to go to. Hence why if you follow me on snapchat you’re probably like holy cow, this girl is a hot mess. Nothin’ wrong with the hot mess express, jump on! But for the days that I do have time to wash my face and attempt to wear make up, below are the products I use. 😉
I usually only have 5-10 minutes to throw make up on so I use quick and easy products, that are lightweight and natural looking.
Foundation– I actually use a tinted moisturizer because I have REALLY dry skin. So this allows all day moisture and great coverage. I use glo Professional’s in the fair color (because his girl is WHITEEE).
Pressed Powder– After putting my liquid foundation, I usually throw on a light later of dry foundation to kind of set it in place and add a little extra coverage. glo Professional also makes a great pressed powder and I’m all about using the same brand liquid and pressed foundation because then it matches well!
Bronzer– I usually brush on a light layer really quick on my cheeks and neck. I’ve used the Sephora brand of this since I was a teenager and ain’t stoppin’ anytime soon, I love it! Plus it literally lasts me like a year and that’s a win, win. Savin’ money one bronzer at a time 😉
Blush– I’m a firm believer in a good blush, it brightens up your cheeks and I think it makes me look more awake. Because let’s be honest most days I wake up exhausted. I’m not sure I have a favorite blush. If I’m being totally honest I use whatever, ha! But I love a good rosy cheek. Here’s a few I’ve used in the past that I’ve liked:
Mascara– I’m a mascara whore. Can I say that? Whatever. Literally, I can never have enough mascara on. I LOVE it. I feel like it’s the perfect finishing touch and I use two-three mascaras every time. I told you I’m obsessed. I usually start with a layer of the E.L.F. Mascara and then use glo Professional’s or Benefit’s ‘They’re Real!’.
Lip Color– Finally I finish with a splash of color on my lips! When I’m in a hurry I use a lip stain or if I have more time I’ll use a good Matte lipstick. Here are a few of my favs:
As you can see, my make up routine isn’t very exciting 😉 ha!! But it does the trick and hides these tired Mama eyes so YAY!
What are your favorite make up products? I love hearing about new products to try, so tell me in the comments your favs!
