As much as I love being able to take my time in applying my makeup and trying new looks or new products, I do love being able to put on my makeup quickly and easily if I need to. With the warmer weather, I’ve been really lazy when it comes to my makeup, especially when it comes to applying eyeliner.
Before, I always used to wear eyeliner because I felt like my eyes looked really small without it. I also could never find a mascara that would keep my eyelashes curled and since I’m not into false eyelashes, I hated how plain my eyes looked without curly lashes.
But since discovering the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, this is the ONLY mascara that actually keeps my eyelashes curled and makes them look full. I actually love how my eyes look with this mascara and without eyeliner. Here is my go-to makeup look that literally takes 5 minutes to put together and takes care of my face, brows, eyes and lips!
My Go-To 5 Minute Makeup Look:
Urban Decay/Gwen Stefani Blush Palette:
This is the star of the look. As I mentioned in my review last month, this palette is so versatile. I can use the colors as blush, highlighter, bronzer, and eyeshadow. I love to use the colors on the second row as eyeshadow and bronzer, the pink shades on the first row I use as blush, and the light golden shade on the top row is perfect for a highlighter. This palette really almost does it all!
It Cosmetics Brow Color in Taupe:
Love this brow product from Colourpop! I do have the Anastasia Dip Brow and I have to say that I prefer this one a tiny bit more since it doesn’t dry out like the ABH, and not to mention that it’s almost $20 cheaper. Although the website doesn’t claim that it’s waterproof, I have swam and worked out and slept in this and my brows are still in place after.
Dr. Jart Beauty Balm with SPF 45:
My favorite product of the summer! I don’t always like wearing foundation and ted to go with powders or beauty balms. Since it’s getting hotter, I really need something that provides SPF protection and this beauty balm is perfect. It provides the perfect and light coverage and it has SPF 45. I use this to run in the mornings too as well as every day use and it works like a dream.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara:
I bow down to this mascara! Mascara has never been a staple in my beauty routine. Because, no matter what brand or type I try, my eyelashes always go straight down as soon as I apply the mascara. No matter how much I curl them, or if I curl them after I apply mascara, they would just look ugly and straight and sad. Most days, I would skip mascara all together. Since finding this mascara, I understand how other people feel about mascara. It makes my really thin and short lashes look long and full and curly. Love!
BH Cosmetics Ultimate Lips 28 Color Lipstick Palette:
Lip palettes have a bad reputation, and with good reason since most are just not very good. The color is usually very sheer and sticky, but this BH Cosmetics lip palette is amazing! It’s like if you took 28 of your most favorite creamy and super pigmented lipsticks and put them in a palette. These are real lipsticks, not a sheer color. I use a lipliner brush to apply these and it’s to easy to apply! Since there are 28 colors, I have a lot of different lip options. Even, it’s possible to mix a few shades together to create a unique shade. I lean toward the nude and pink shades, but all these colors are amazing.
