Hey yall! So a few weeks ago I uploaded a Youtube video going over my 10 minute makeup routine. I will link that video to the bottom of this post if you want to watch! But if you’re anything like me, you may like reading a blog post about it too.
For a 10 minute makeup routine, I decide not to use foundation because I find by the end of the day it has practically slid off my face. I have a very oily complexion so I try to stay as light as possible, especially during summer months. My favorite concealer I have been using lately is the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla. I really like the coverage this concealer provides while also being lightweight on my face. I don’t set the concealer in this routine because I feel that can look a little to heavy under my eyes.
After concealer, I do like to brush on some light bronzer and blush. My holy grail bronzer is the Hoola Bronzer by Benefit. I just use the original shade and it works for my skin tone. I realize that their Hoola shade range is not very inclusive so I would recommend using your favorite bronzer shade that works best for you! The blush that I have been using right now is the L.A. Girl Just Blushing powder. But to be honest, I really love playing around with different blushes in all kinds of color families!
My favorite product to use for natural looking brows is the Benefit Precisely My Brow pencil. I like to make hair like strokes with the pencil for the most natural looking brow as possible. I will sometimes set my brows with the 24 Hour Brow Setter, also from Benefit. Benefit Cosmetics is KNOWN for their brow products. If you dont take anything else from this blog post, just know this: if you are in the market for brow products definitely check out Benefit!
One of my favorite parts of doing my makeup each time is applying mascara. I love enhancing my eyelashes and I can be really picky about my mascara. Right now my absolute FAVORITE mascara is the L’Oreal Double Extend mascara. You have probably seen this one in stores, the red and white tube where both ends have a mascara wand. I love this mascara because the white side applies a primer over your lashes that elongates them as soon as you apply the mascara.
That’s it for my 10 minute routine! It’s super simple, and looks really natural. If you follow me on my makeup instagram, you know that I really don’t do everyday makeup very often. So when I do, I like to keep it simple. If you haven’t yet seen my video doing this makeup routine, here it is! Make sure to subscribe to my channel if you want to see me paint my face 😬.

We’ll talk again soon! XO
