I’m that girl who hates going outside without some form of makeup. So just about every morning before I leave for work I apply my makeup. What I started to notice is I was spending to much time in the morning applying makeup. There were times I was spending 30-45 minutes on makeup alone. It had gotten to the point where I was trying to wake up earlier just to have more time for makeup. That’s just insane.
One morning I was in bit of a rush but I still wanted to squeeze my makeup in the mix. On top of being short on time it was going to be hot and humid so I knew a full face of makeup was out of the question. I did something really quick and it was perfect. On top of that, it withstood the heat that day. Since then I’ve been applying my makeup this way and I get it done in maybe 15-20 minutes.
First I appy bb cream and primer. I apply my bb cream first because bb cream does it all covers, moisturizes, primes, sun protection, illuminates… Everything. I apply my primer over my bb cream to help the other makeup I’m applying stick to my face.
Next is eyebrows. I fill them in and add a gel to keep my eyebrows in place. I apply concealor under my brows as a highlighter and to give an appearance of a cleaner brow line (especially when I need my brows done)
I add concealor under my eyes and the lighter concealor on my forehead as a highlight… Blend blend blend!
I apply a loose mineral powder all over face. This is a summer must have and its greats for setting your makeup. I wouldn’t recommend a translucent powder unless you want to look ghostly or ashy… Then go for it.
For the eyes I keep it simple. Eyeliner on my top and lower lid. I usually do dark brown or dark gray liner. I don’t do a heavy top lip. I keep it simple. Same with mascara top and bottom lid. It gives a classic look.
This is great starter for makeup newbies or for makeup pros who are looking for no-makeup makeup routine.
