There are some days that I just don’t have enough time to do a full face of makeup, but I often still want to look put together. I’m always on the hunt for quick and easy products that will make my skin look as flawless as it can be.
I put together my five favourite products for a quick and easy makeup routine.
Concealer – It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye
I don’t think I ever leave the house with concealer on. I have horrible under eye bags and I constantly look like I’m in zombie mode. This concealer is the easiest and best one I’ve been able to find. This does exactly as the name suggests – it makes my under eye bags disappear. I’m also able to blend this out with my fingers which makes for such an easy application.
Powder – Rimmel Stay Matte
The It Cosmetics concealer can crease extremely easily so it’s important for me to set that with a powder. I like using a pressed powder because it’s a lot less of a hassle compared to a loose powder. This one has been my holy grail for quite some time. I find it really helps to lock everything in place.
Foundation – bareMinerals Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15
I recently have been enjoying wearing powder foundation for a “no makeup” makeup look. It’s super easy to apply and actually evens out my skin tone. In the past I never really felt like powder foundation could have a decent amount of coverage but this product has been great!
Brows – Colourpop Dope Taupe Brow Pencil
I don’t know what I did before I knew the true power of filling in my eyebrows. This is such an affordable product and really fills out your brows well. Brows can definitely be a time consuming part of makeup. This product blends really well and looks great even if you’re rushing the application process.
Mascara – Smashbox X-Rated Mascara
I really think that putting a natural mascara can complete a quick look. This has been my go to mascara for the past couple weeks. I got this sample size for a great deal at a makeup warehouse sale and I don’t want to run out of this because the full size is so expensive. I already have fairly long lashes naturally but they are super light in colour. This helps to darken the lashes, give them some great volume, while lengthening a little bit.
