As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t spend a significant amount of time on my make-up every morning. I never have… and it’s likely a combination of “I have no clue how to contour my face” and “Make-up is meant to enhance your natural features” that have led to this. I do occasionally pull out the eye liner and glam lip, but it’s typically for fancier occasions, not everyday life (a smokey eye and red lip at the park would melt off my face…). It’s simple, it’s quick, and it does the trick (i.e. covers up those scary dark circles with some amazing concealer). I had a recent request for a video tutorial of how I apply my favorite everyday products, so you’ll find that below. I’ve also included links to the products mentioned in the video, so you can easily access them if you prefer to skip the tutorial all together (oh, and this is my first tutorial, so it’s only slightly awkward…).
I always start with a solid base on my clean face before applying any make-up (you can find my evening routine here). I apply a toner, illuminating serum, and eye cream, let it all soak in for about 5 minutes, and then proceed with applying my make-up. It takes me about 5 minutes from start to finish (probably because I’ve been doing the same routine for a couple of years)…. so, if you’re short on time in the morning, or just looking for some good quality everyday products, I got you covered today.
I hope you all have a great weekend!! We’re heading to Cabo tomorrow morning, so I’m looking forward to some quality family time, a little sun, ocean air, and some margaritas (duh.). See you Monday! xx
