However, on those days when I'm lucky enough to squeeze in a couple extra minutes, I'll throw together a quick glowing makeup look. Today I want to share my go-to "running late" beauty routine in hopes that I can pass down some quick tips to all of my girls on the go out there. Enjoy!
When it comes to blush, you can't skip! It's important to add some color to those cheeks! I like sticking to the cream theme and going with a stick or basic cream blush. One of my favorites is the NYX Cream Rouge Blush in "Natural".
I don't focus on contouring when I'm in a hurry (obviously) but I still like adding a bronzey glow to my skin. I love the Tarte Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder in "Bronze" because it gives my skin a natural hint of color and also sets my CC cream! If you own the Bare Minerals Bronzing Mineral Veil, this would be a similar option to use!
Of course, I can't go without my mascara. The hands down best mascara of all time is the Benefit " They're REAL!" It literally makes you look like you have false lashes on. I love it and highlight recommend it to anyone looking for a legit amazing mascara!
I often reach for my travel size lippies so I can just toss whatever color I choose in my purse and be on my way. For the photo above, I chose Laura Mercier Lip Glace in "Bare Pink". It so natural and really makes the lips look shiny and hydrated. I've been loving this color lately!
- Clinique CC Cream (my shade-Light)
- NYX Cream Rouge (shade used-Natural)
- Tarte Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder (shade used-Bronze)
- Benefit "Peeka-Bright Eyes" Illuminating Eye Kit
- Benefit "They're REAL!" Mascara
- Laura Mercier Lip Glace (shade used-Bare Pink)
Next time you find yourself in a bind, try out variations of these 6 products. You don't have to use the same products I did, only variations mixed with the techniques!
Thanks so much for reading, guys!
Until next time...
