I’m currently in my last several weeks of college, and I have been all about a simple, quick, and pretty makeup routine. On an everyday basis I’m using seven different products that give me a fresh look in just a few minutes. It’s perfect for those drowsy mornings when all I want to do is sleep as long as possible and grab coffee on my way out the door.
For my base makeup right now, I’m using the Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation. This one honestly isn’t my favorite, but I’m trying to use it up. It’s a decent foundation, but a little dry for my taste. A lot of times I mix it in with my moisturizer and apply it with a Beauty Blender for a lighter finish.
I add the Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight in Hefty Highlight to my cheek bones, cupids bow, and anywhere else that I want to brighten. It’s my all time favorite highlighter because of its natural and not too shimmery finish.
My favorite blush right now is also from Clinique- the Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in the shade Melon Pop. It’s a pretty peachy shade that gives a pretty and natural flush.
For my eyes, I love the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eye Shadow in the shade Rio de Rose Gold. I apply a little bit of this to my lids and blend it out with my finger. It gives such a pretty metallic finish, and looks like it took way more effort than it does. I finish off the eyes with a little bit of MAC’s False Lashes Mascara.
A brow pencil is essential for me, and I love the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil. I don’t need much in the way shaping from a brow product, but I do need color (brown hair on my head, blonde hair on my brows! 😯 ) and this pencil is great for that.
To finish off my makeup, I’m loving the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in the shade Ruby. It’s a sheer tinted lip balm that just brightens up the face, and I love how moisturizing it is. It’s low maintenance and pretty, plus I love the packaging!
What beauty products do you love when you’re feeling the minimal look? Any recent favorites? I’d love to hear!
P.S. How cute is this makeup bag?!
