I wanted to share my quick & easy five minutes or less beauty routine that is my go-to for weekdays. I focus on complexion with a bold eyeliner and colorful lip. I might work in cosmetics, but I’m on the corporate side so I honestly have very little artistry talent which is why I like to keep my beauty look fresh and simple.
Let me know what you think and what products are you go-to’s, I always love hearing your thoughts!
With a fresh, clean face, I begin with Ashley Sievert’s Mineral Velvet Créme in Paris, using Urban Decay’s Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush to apply it. I love this créme to powder coverage – enough to give a nice even complexion but lightweight and oil-free with SPF. Just what I need for everyday wear!
I set the foundation with bareMinerals tinted Mineral Veil. Then I add GlowFusion Bronzer in Golden in the shape of a “3” on my head, cheeks and chin with a touch of NARS blush in Orgasm.
Then I add just a touch of It Cosmetics Illuminizer highlighter on my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose using Urban Decay’s Double-Ended brush.
For my brows I use my Naked Basics palette. I use Faint on three quarters of my brow and come in with Naked2 in the front to create that natural fading-in look.
My favorite eyeliner right now is Urban Decay’s Super Saturated Cream Eyeliner and I use their Perversion angled brush (triple love this brush). I love using this cream to create a really thick cat eye. Another favorite of mine is Stila’s Liquid Eyeliner.
My favorite lip colors right now are absolutely from Urban Decay, with my first runner up being YSL’s lip stain. I love pairing the UD lip liners and lipsticks for a rich, pigmented color that lasts for hours. Today I’m wearing Turn On.
The last step is curling my lashes and applying Urban Decay’s Subversion Lash Primer and Perversion Mascara.
Has anyone else fallen head-over-heels for IT Cosmetics brushes? Hello amazing!
And that my friends, is my everyday beauty routine with some of my favorite products as of late. Tell me – what is your everyday beauty product you can’t live without?
