A little while ago I was asked to do a post on what I do makeup wise when I am running late or when I do not feel like taking a ton of time on makeup.
Foundation: Wetting a beauty blender really feels like a hassle sometimes, so when in a hurry I would rather use a brush. My favorite foundation to use with a brush is the Pacifica Dreamy Cover foundation serum. There are not a lot of shades of this foundation, which is lame, but the lightest shade works well for me. I just blend it in quickly with a flat top kabuki brush.
Concealer: Right a long with foundation, I do not want to have to use a beauty blender. I really enjoy using the Pacifica Transcendent concealer with a flat top kabuki brush. It does great at concealing my blemishes and at high lighting my face.
Brows: I still take a bit of time on my brows, no matter what. I feel like they really make or break my face. I use the Stroke of Beauty brow definer to outline and fill in my brows. I then use a tinted brow gel to set them and make sure they are the color I want them to be. I then use the Pacifica concealer to define them. I usually use the ELF small concealer brush to do so.
Eyes: I ordered the Too Faced x Nikkie Tutorials set the second it went live on Ulta.com. It wasn’t something I loved as much as I wanted to. But, I do get use out of it!
- I take the shade “Pain Killer” in my crease as a transition color. It has become my favorite shadow for this purpose.
- I use the shade “Ivy” all over my lid and I also use it to highlight under my brow bone.
- To define my lower lash line I use the shade “Makeup and Chill”.
Blush, Bronzer, Etc: For this I also use the Nikkie palette. I mix the two blush shades, use the bronzer to contour and bronze, and use the highlight on the parts of my face I want to highlight. The highlight isn’t a very in your face highlight, so it is nice for when I am not too made up.
Lips: For my lips I usually go with something glossy, tends to be much less work than matte lip products. Lately I have been reaching for my Nude Stick lip and cheek pencil in the shade “Mystic”.
This is how the finished look turns out! Super simple and enhances my features just enough. The products last all day and they have all been very fail safe for me.
