If you’re anything like me, even just applying a little bit of makeup makes you feel more productive and put together. But sometimes you don’t have time to do a full face! By lightly applying these few products, you’ll be ready to go in no time, and no one will know that it only took you a few minutes 😉
We don’t want to go too heavy with the concealer here, so just place a little bit where there are any blemishes you want to cover up, or on any areas of your face that you want to be a little more evened out. This $6 Elf 16hr Camo Concealer is a dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape, and I actually like it way better (it’s much less drying in my opinion)! I use the shade “Fair Warm” to brighten and “Light Sand” to conceal.
Now we’re going to apply a little bit of cream bronzer to the areas of your face where shadows would typically appear (cheekbones, jawline, forehead, nose). This adds some color back to your face and makes you look more natural and healthy! This Chanel Bronzing Cream is a bit of a splurge, but it’s amazing and will last you such a long time! I like to apply it with a beauty sponge because I love the way it blends out, but a stippling brush works great too.
I love applying blush basically all over my face! By applying it to the apples of your cheeks, down the bridge of your nose, your forehead, and your chin, you’re giving yourself a naturally sun kissed look. The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush is my favorite because of the beautiful natural glow it gives your skin. I love the shade “Luminous Flush.”
We want a natural-looking brow here, so just take a bit of tinted brow gel and brush it up and out through your brows to give you a naturally fluffy brow that will stay in place. I’ve tried just about every brow product out there, drugstore and high-end, and this NYX Tinted Brow Mascara is my favorite! I use the shade “Brunette.”
Y’all know I talk about this product all the time, but it’s that good! Just apply a little dab of this to your lips to keep them moisturized and looking healthy and shiny.
And that’s it! Literally takes just a few minutes, and gives you the prettiest “no-makeup makeup” look for any day of the week! If you want to add an extra step and apply some mascara, go for it! I don’t use mascara since I have lash extensions, but this used to be my go-to. I’ve never seen anyone else use it before, but it’s SO GOOD! The wand is bendable so you can reach every single lash, and it gives you great volume and length.
