Early Morning Makeup
The past week I've had to wake up at 6am for my babysitting job. Thank goodness I am a morning person, but I still wanted a makeup look that was going to be quick, low maintance, and keep me looking put together all day. One of the days I was babysitting from 7:30am-3pm and had a shift at Chipotle from 5pm-9pm. A 14+ hour day and my blush was still on, undereye concealer didn't crease, and my eyebrows and mascara didn't fade or flake off. Aside from looking a bit oily, I think that is pretty amazing.
Before anything else, I'll take my ELF Lip Exfoliator and use it on my lips. It exfoliates them and leaves behind a moisturizing balm. I begin my makeup with my Tarte BB Tinted Primer in Medium Tan. It is my exact shade and on me, it's full coverage. It feels like a primer but looks like a foundation. It can definitely be a one-step base for some people, but I like to go in with my Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Concealer under my eyes to help brighten the area.
Next, I'll dust on my NYX HD Finishing Powder in Banana under my eyes to brighten even more and set my concealer. The Tarte BB Tinted Primer doesn't need to be set, so I leave the rest of my face alone. With an angled brush, I quickly bronze up and sculpt my face with the Ulta Sculpting Palette. I love the bronzer shade in this. It's the perfect bronzer/contour shade. I like mixing the highlight and blush for my cheeks so I can combine more steps.
To finish everything up, I take my NYX Brow Mascara and comb it through my brows. I love this stuff. It darkens them, keeps the hairs in place, and makes them look fuller. I believe it is an amazing product that everyone needs to own. Then, with my fingers, I'll blend some of my Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes Eyeshadow in #13 on my lids. This stuff doesn't need a primer and adds a little bit of glam to your look. After that, I'll just pop some mascara on my lashes and I'm done!
