10-Minute Makeup Look


 We all have those days where we have absolutely no desire to do our makeup all glam, but we still want to look fresh and awake. This look as been my go to look for school for a while, but in recent times I've been rocking only mascara to school. But if I wanted to wear makeup, this would be the look I would go for. Of course I love getting all glammed up, but when I'm getting up for school at 6 am everyday, I don't feel like spending 30 minutes doing my makeup. 

I like to focus on evening out my skin, and my lashes. While wearing this makeup look, people have said I look like I'm not wearing any, which is exactly what I'm going for with this specific look. 

I forgot to put it in the picture, but I like to start out by priming both my face and eyes, because no matter what the day is, I always have to prime or else I'll become an oily creasy mess. After priming, I use the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer to cover any redness, discoloration, my under eye circles, and the veins on my eyelids, and blend it all out with a sponge. To ensure it doesn't move, I just use the Rimmel stay matte powder lightly all over my face. 

I tend to skip blush, so I'll just use the Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder in 01 to add some color back to my face, and use the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Ethereal Light to add a natural, soft glow. I'll also use that bronzer and apply it to my crease with a fluffy brush for some warmth. 

I always need to fill in my eyebrows, so I just use the color Frisk from the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics palette to fill them in, then highlight under my brow bone and my inner corner with the color Stark from the same palette. 

I use a nude eyeliner in my waterline, the Wonder Pencil from NYX, and then apply the MAC False Lashes mascara to my top and bottom lashes. This mascara provides length and volume, and gives a very natural look to the lashes if applied lightly.

Finally I'll finish it off with lip gloss or a lip stain like the Stainiac from theBalm. It's simple, easy, and I looks very natural and fresh! Occasionally if my skin is a little worse I'll use foundation but it tends to stay pretty clear so I just concealer :)
