10 minute face

So I was running late for an appointment today and set a goal to do my face in 10 minutes. Since my recent brow waxing mishap, I have a little work to do on these bad boys during makeup application...therefore a 5 minute face is out of the question. Here is what I came up with:

Rimmel Primer
Lancome concealer for under eye circles
MAC MSF Natural
NYC bronzer in Terracotta Tan
Nars blush in Angelika applied lightly with a fan brush
ELF Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Warm Tan to highlight cheekbones

Random natural shimmer shadow
Maybelline Great Lash
NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk on waterline ---> FAIL! I hate the way this looks!!!

NYX lipgloss in Juicy Red

twist out on damp hair, separated and fluffed. held off my face with an ouchless headband

What is your go-to 5 (or 10) minute routine?


  1. I still am not a fan of NYX Jumbo E/S pencils. I try and try again. I've never tried one on my waterline. Did you apply it directly from the pencil or use a brush to apply it?

    The hair section, i like it.

  2. ALLmEYEne - I applied the pencil directly to my waterline...I think it looks weird lol. I included the hair section with you in mind :-)

  3. Primer on face & eyes, Revlon ColorStay Makeup in Mocha, Precriptives Loose Powder, Revlon lipstick in Iced Mocha (my go to neutral lip) and any golden brown shimmer eye shadow within reach on my entire lid and a little over the crease. The Rimmel Smokey Brown quad is a fave.

    This routine got me through a crazy busy December!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous!!! And I love your hair too :)
