No time in the morning? Kids always pulling at you as you’re trying to get that liner even and shadow blended? Here’s a quick and easy look that can be done in under FIVE minutes! Speedy makeup has to be my number one requested topic from my clients – more than that of a smokey eye – imagine!
First start with your game-players and have them in a separate makeup bag. Keeping yourself organized is the best way to speed up your routine in the morning. Here are a few of the products I used, and the additional ones are listed below:
Garnier BB Cream Skin Renew – Wal-Mart, $17; what’s that? I’ve already featured this? Sure have – cause it’s my FAVE! This is the original formula, which imparts more of a dewy glow than the previously mentioned, more matte, formula. Offers coverage, radiance and hydration – love!
L’Oréal Touche Magique in Rose Porcelain – Target, $11; the ultimate highlighting pen! Helps to correct, conceal, brighten, hydrate and smooth the under eye. Fantastic for highlighting other areas of the face. TIP: make sure to conceal the inner corner of the eye area, it’ll instantly perk up your peepers! (NB – the packaging is now like the photo posted above and is called Perfect Match – Touche Magique, the L’Oréal website has not updated their photo).
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin – Sephora, $24; a cult favourite by ALL makeup artists! Locks down your shadow and holds it in place for up to 24 hours (but don’t test that – wash off your makeup every night). Tiny amount goes a long way – simply smooth it all over the lid to even out tone and add a bit of shimmer.
MAC Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour in Keep It Loose – maccosmetics.com, $26 – multi-purpose product for cheeks and lips! Effortlessly swipe on colour for a dewy, fresh look with this cheerful peachy tone. For added pop, add a touch of Love Nectar Lustreglass on lips afterwards.
Maybelline the Rocket Volum’Express Mascara – Wal-Mart, $7 – all-time favourite mascara! Separates and creates defined volume – no clumps here! Just lush, full lashes. The BEST!
L’Oréal Super Liner Brow Artist in Blonde – Target, $10 – super convenient all-in-one brow product – colour, brush and seal all with one product. This is sure to save time in the morning – no more fumbling looking for 3 different products and tools.
