My Everyday Makeup Routine
Waking up every day at 6:30 a.m. for school can be quite tiring so most mornings I aim to get as much sleep as possible. So if that means cutting down my time to get ready for an extra 10 minutes of sleep, then so be it.
So for today’s blog post, I will be showing my everyday 15-minute makeup routine when I just don’t have the time or when I just don’t feel like applying 30 minutes worth of makeup. This routine is nice, simple, and to the point but will still make you look put together and ready to start your day and accomplish all today’s tasks.
TIME TO START GETTING READY!!
By the time I wake up, brush my teeth, and wash my face its about 7 a.m and I have to be out the door by 7:30 a.m which means that gives me 30 minutes to get my makeup, hair, and outfit ready. AHHHH!!!!! Soooooo to begin with I start by applying a primer before my foundation.
Since I do have oily skin I usually tend to buy a primer that is oil-free and that will keep me looking matte all day looooonnngg. My go-to primer is the Laura Geller Spackle Under Makeup Primer. This is a wonderful primer because it’s very hydrating to the skin and keeps me looking matte throughout my long day adventures.
Once I apply my primer I wait about 30 seconds to a minute before I put my foundation on to let the primer sink into my skin. For an everyday look, I prefer to apply a like weight foundation like the It Cosmetic CC Cream in the shade light, although it is lightweight it’s awesome because of its medium to full coverage.
Although the CC Cream is full coverage most days waking up at 6:30 a.m. means dark circles are very much present so I will apply some concealer under my eyes and on a few spots such as red spots and pimples. If you don’t want to apply concealer or don’t have time to, what I would do is just dab some extra CC Cream on the spots you want to cover.
10 MINUTES LEFT……..
What I usually do next after applying primer, foundation, and concealer I will start on my eyebrows which usually takes just a little longer to do. I get an angled brush, dip just the tip of the brush in the Anastasia eyebrow pomade, and start drawing/filling in my eyebrows.
After my eyebrows, I quickly set them with the e.l.f clear mascara to ensure they stay put the whole day and continue with applying on some highlighter. One of my favorite highlighters is from the Carli Bybel Palette (AMAZING!!!). The palette contains a bunch of beautiful highlighters and eyeshadows which is so awesome because you can pick which color highlighter and eyeshadow to wear that day.
My favorite highlighter is the second one which is the lightest and compliments many skin tones nicely and makes them cheekbones look nice and glowy!!!! I LOVE IT !!! If you have time feel free to quickly apply any eyeshadow on your eyelids from the Carli Bybel Palette, but I usually stick to no eyeshadow.
HURRY!!! YOU GOT 5 MINUTES……
Second to last product I apply is mascara and right now my favorite has been the Tarte Maneater Voluptuous Mascara because just like the name says, it makes your lashes incredibly VOLUPTUOUS. I usually apply two small coats of mascara and that is that.
The last thing that I apply is a lipstick, I will stick to matte on most occasions but at times I also love to use a clear gloss. My favorite brown mauve lipstick is the Kat Von D Bow N Arrow, this lipstick is definitely a MUST HAVE because it will compliment everyone’s skin tone beautifully.
I will finish my makeup routine by applying some finishing spray/ setting spray and just like that in 15 minutes or less you are DONE!! How quick and easy was that right??? So go ahead and recreate this look and add your own spin to it, one other product I will apply if have a couple extra minutes is bronzer to make my face look a bit more define.
But add as little or as many of these products as you like and have fun creating your 15-minute makeup look. It’s 7:15 a.m. now time to go get my hair and outfit ready, See Y’all !!!!!!
