Maybelline Fit Me Concealer: This stuff is just magical. I’ve tried every type and brand of concealer (well not all of them but an impressive number), and Maybelline has the trump card with this one. I swipe this under my eyes and on any imperfections/redness before blending it in super quickly with my trusty ol’ Sephora Airbrush Concealer Brush. I don’t even bother with a base or with powder, though if you’re really oily, I’d recommend setting it.
NYX Tinted Brow Mascara: I run this juju through my brows to keep them tidy, tame, and tinted, but still super, ridiculously easy. This is as no-fuss as it gets, folks.
MAC Breath of Plum Blush: This is all-time favorite blush, and I’ve been using the same color nearly every day for two or more years. I just sweep this across my cheeks for a little bit of livening color.
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette: If I bother with eye shadow, I like to reach for this palette. For a quick, pretty, everyday eye, I just pat on a bit of ‘suspect’ on my lids and blend out the shade ‘tease’ in my crease. I can also use the darker shades with a pencil brush and create a sultry, smoky, liner look if I’m going out.
L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara: I’m new to this mascara, but I quite like the volume and definition this gives my lashes. One coat is really all I need to plump and pump them for the day.
To be honest, I haven’t even bothered with a lip product. I sometimes slap on a bit of Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me if I feel like I need a bit of color or hydration, but I’ve mostly chosen to leave em’ be. I’ve actually got this routine down to about three and a half minutes — one play of “Believe” by the Bravery or “If I Had A Gun” by Noel Gallagher on my playlist and I’m set for the entire day.
