Simple everyday makeup look in under 10 minutes

If you wake up late and are in a hurry to pull yourself together this makeup look is perfect. It looks put together and really looks like you took the time to dress your face when really you were pressed for time and well… didn’t really try that hard. 


Lets jump into this with a little scenario shall we…

Night before: Cramming for finals, fell asleep at the desk.

Alarm goes off at 5:00 am: snooze!!!6:30 am cat jumps up and rubs against your head: heart drops when you look at the time, jump up and run to the restroom.

Morning routine: wash and moisturizer your face (don’t forget to brush your teeth)If you use a primer you can add this to your step, but I usually just skip it.

My go to foundation when I am in a rush is DiorSkin Star in Sand (031) it matches my skin tone perfectly and it gives me that flawless coverage. 

To blend it in I use my trusty Beauty Blender and set my foundation with a little bit of HD setting powder-LA girl with a large brush. 

I would suggest at this point to do your makeup in order of importance. So If you’ve got sparse eyebrows this would be your next step and if you’ve been blessed with bushy beauts go on to bronzer. 

For the brows I always use Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz – Chocolate . 

Apply bronzer to the temples up to your forehead and below the cheek bones we are creating depth since the foundation we applied washes you out. 

For this step I use Bourjois Healthy Balance Unifying Compact – Vanille it blends perfectly with my current skin town. For more of a contour ill go back and use Benefit Cosmetic Hoola

Now to add some highlight I use BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector – Moonstone its such a beautiful velvety coverage. 

For a little life to my cheeks I pop on some Frankie Rose – peachy pink

And if you once again are blessed with long lavish lashes just pack on the mascara and move on to the lips, if not or you just want to add a little more to the look I used Huda Beauty Lashes – Giselle

I lined the lash line with Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner – Black Its still my fave. 

And to top off the look lips are up to you i went with MakeupForever Rouge Artist Natural – (N9)Copper Pink

Hope this was helpful! If you’d like to see a Tutorial please let me know, in the comments. I just ordered new lighting.
