When I’m getting ready for work in the morning I leave barely enough time for myself, as I am not a morning person so elaborate makeup is not something I go for like I do on weekends. Typically this means only two or three eyeshadows, mascara, brows, and concealer. If I’m awake enough and have an additional minute I’ll add in liner, foundation, and lip balm. Typically rushing to do these as Pixie is outside going to the bathroom or taking ages to eat her breakfast. And I haven’t done one of these posts in ages, so I thought I might as well do an update on what my minimalist makeup routine is.
To start out with I always put on concealer, at the moment I’ve been reaching for Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer in C3. As if I’m not wearing foundation, it’s the same color as my skin. If I’m going to put on Foundation which is generally the ColourPop No Filter Stick Foundation in 27N since it’s the quickest to apply, then I will go with C1 for the concealer to brighten up the under eyes. I make sure to blend that concealer up onto my lids as a base for the shadows. Next I go for eyeshadow, which lately I’ve been reaching for ColourPop Pressed Shadow 9-pan Palette Mar. I usually reach for one of the metallics to apply across my lids then take one of the matte tones to deepen the outer corner. If I remembered to bring downstairs my eyeliner (NYX Epic Ink Liner) then I give myself a wing otherwise next I’ll apply Essence Volume Stylist Curl & Hold Mascara to my upper and lower lashes. Then it’s time for brows which I love to be darker then my whatever hair color I have at the moment. A general good option that works with almost every hair color I’ve had lately has been the ColourPop Brow Pomade in Cool Cocoa. As it’s a neutral dark brown and stays all day long. Lastly, if my lips are looking a little dry or chap I’ll use the ColourPop Lippie Balm in Bellini BB then call it a day. Otherwise, my lips have nothing on them before I rush out the door.
Super simple but easy to complete in five minutes when I’m still half asleep trying to do all my morning activities with Pixie. What do you guys do for minimal makeup? Or are you more of a full glam everyday person?
