Hi everyone! I meant to write this post sooner but I’ve been so busy with my son that it really took this long for me to do this!
I wanted to post my makeup that I do lately. I don’t have much time after becoming a mom to do makeup. So most days I just do this and on days I have more time – – I do my long routine. But this is enough to make me feel like I don’t look as tired as a feel! Hope you enjoy this!
I first start of with a facial primer all over my face. I like this banila co primer because it’s not too expensive and is a bit similar to Smashbox’s primer.
Next I prime my eyes. Everyone has their favorite, mine is the Urban Decay Primer Potion. Once I started using this, I never went back. Though, I’m always up for suggestions if you have any others that you like!
I use this innisfree Long Wear Cushion after my SIL recommended it to me! I love it, it is actually really easy to apply and it dries to a matte finish. It actually lasts all day and it’s at a great price. I saw a video that suggests using one end of the pad to pat the product onto your face. Then you use the other end to pat the product (without any BB cream) to lock it in. It works like a charm and is super easy!
I apply a brow pencil in a gray color, black is too harsh and brown looks totally terrible on me. This one is by banila co but I’m not too attached. It’s easy to use though!
I usually only have time for one swipe of color for eyeshadow. I pick whichever one I’m feeling that day. Today I wanted Buck by Urband Decay Naked 1.
Curl and quick swipe of mascara!
If I have time – I pencil in a thin line of brown gel liner. (This one is from Etude House)
And I just slap on some lip butter by Revlon.
It’s not glamourous by any means but it works for me! Most days I actually skip the eyeliner and BB cream. All depends on how I feel when I wake up and how much time I have. This whole routine takes about 10 minutes for me and I usually do it while Ollie reads a book in the crib or if my husband can watch him.
What are your speed secrets for makeup? I’d love to hear. And I am thinking about doing a giveaway of makeup! Would anyone be interested? I know I’ve been bad about blogging and thought this would be a good way to say thank you to all of you who have read and been such a support during our move to Asia and the road to pregnancy.
