There are few things I enjoy more than taking over an hour to get ready. I’m not kidding. Doing my hair + makeup brings me so much joy. I think it’s because I feel super creative, almost artistic, when I’m experimenting with new eyeshadow colors or attempting to master the perfect contour. I’ll also always be the friend who offers to glam you up before we go out. That’s how much I love it.
I’m relatively low maintenance during the work week, however, sometimes disaster strikes and I sleep through/past my alarm… and then I have about 5-10 minutes to get ready. Back when I was younger and fresher faced it wouldn’t have mattered, BUT NOW, as I approach my late 20s, I need a little extra help to look bright eyed + bushy tailed.
Here’s my five minute makeup routine and six products I absolutely swear by! Happy shopping, Babes!
Tarteguard Tinted Moisturizer – This stuff is MAGIC. It has a light amount of coverage, but is easily buildable if you’re looking for a little extra protection. Bonus points for it having 20 SPF in it.
Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer – Okay, so first things first, this bronzer smells like actual chocolate. It applies effortlessly, and creates a gorgeous contour.
Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter – No makeup look is complete without a BOMB highlight, am I right?! BECCA’s formula melts right into the skin and looks flawless all day.
DIPBROW Pomade – Always. Fill. In. Your. Eyebrows. It will literally change the shape of your face, and no matter how little makeup you have on, you will feel so glammed up with sculpted brows.
Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara – This mascara never clumps, and goes on so smoothly. It makes lashes look longer and fuller with each use. Sign me up.
Quench Lip Rescue Balm – The final touch. A lip balm with a light tint to pull everything together.
