My 10 Minute Makeup Routine

 

ten minute makeup routine, makeup look, mac blush, too faced mascara, sephora, colourpop ultra matte,

Every girl that does her makeup needs to have an ” I can’t leave my face bare but I don’t have enough time for full glam routine” or in other words something that takes less than 10 minutes to do. I think any good routine starts with great healthy skin. If you want to be able to leave the house in a hurry you need a good base to work with.

When Im in a rush the first step I skip is applying foundation; simply because I’ve taken care of my skin that I dont actually need foundation. I head straight for my fit me concealer since its creamy, blendable and the most natural looking out of my collectionI try to stay away from anything that is too light because it takes more time for me blend out.

Next up are my eyebrows, which I spend all of a half of a second on. I was blessed with great eyebrows, shout-out to my mom for that one, and so I usually only need a quick run through with my spoolie and I’m done. If I had more time I would do my full brow routine but since this is all supposed to be under 10 minutes I like to focus my attention on more pressing things.

The only thing I do with my eyes is apply mascara, two to be exact. I’m still learning how to work with eyeshadow and it’s not something I have time to play with when I’m in a rush. Sometimes I apply eyeliner but for the most part, I stick with just the mascara.

Now comes the easy part, applying blush and highlighting. My favorite everyday blush is raizen by Mac and I reach for it whenever I’m short on time. It looks great on my skin, and it’s extremely buildable so I never have to worry about adding too much and then being stuck with having to fix all the extra blush on my face. My go to highighter is the cream version of Becca Opal. It is such a pretty color and it has the just the right amount of shine to give you a natural glow. I like using the cream because it sets into my skin easily and I dont have to worry about getting powdery glitter all over my face.

To warm up my face a bit I use my mac blush in blunt. I prefer my cream contour kit by ABH but it requres me to use mutiple brushes and takes a while to blend properly. I apply mac blunt on the hollows of my cheeks, my forehead and under my chin. After that I apply a lipstick (my current favorites are the ultra matte lips by colourpop) and I’m all set to go!

Which products do you use for your quick everyday makeup routine?

    You’re so lucky that you have great skin! Mine is definitely getting better now, but after a life-long struggle with acne I’m left with some scarring, so foundation/BB cream is one of these products I don’t usually skip, even when in a hurry haha 😉

    I really want to try highlighter products from Becca. Also, you’re incredibly lucky that you don’t have to do much for your skin 🙂

    Powder foundation I can quickly swipe on is great for when I’m in a hurry. Also, I can’t be without blush or my eyebrows so I need those too 🙂
