As a performer for weddings and other formal events, I wear makeup pretty often. However, finding time for makeup application is difficult with a toddler around. That’s why I’m constantly on the lookout for ways to simplify my makeup routine.
My makeup in this picture took just 10 minutes to do and involved six products. It’s perfect if you’re always on the go or harassed by small children. Haha! These are the products I used:
Dear Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream
This base worked really well on my skin. It has very light coverage, which I really like because it looks natural. My skin is more on the oily side but this held up well indoors, even without primer. It also has SPF so you can do away with separate sunscreen if you’re in a hurry.
Maybelline Brow Precise Fiber Filler
This is really easy to use. I just swipe it on areas that need a bit of thickening. Not really a fan of shaping or drawing eyebrows, mainly because I don’t have time! Haha.
Happy Skin All Eyes on Hue Honeymoon Glow Edition
This has just four shades but they combine perfectly and add just the right amount of color to your eyelids. The cheat sheet for creating different looks is also pretty helpful!
Maybelline Hypersharp Power Black Liner
This is a liquid pen but it is very easy to use, once you get the hang of it. I have unsteady hands, but I feel pretty confident when I use this. It also has decent staying power even on my oily lids. The color is jet black, which I really like because I prefer bold black for my eyeliner.
Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso
This blush is perfect on my skin. It looks very natural and never overdone. It comes with its own compact mirror and brush for when you’re traveling, but I find the brush too harsh on my skin and so I use a different brush to apply it.
Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus
This balm has a very subtle tint, but I prefer that so I don’t have to worry about stains on my teeth or putting lip liner so the color stays on my lips. I also prefer my lip products to be all-natural, because Wolf sometimes asks me to put some balm on his lips too.
I’m not a fan of heavy makeup. I just don’t want to look pale under stage lights or in pictures. After much trial and error, I think I’ve stumbled on a quick and easy routine for fresh makeup, and in the process I apparently became a BeautyMNL Ambassador (I guess I’ve been buying too many things hahaha). The products listed above are just a few of my favorite makeup finds so far. Give them a try, and hopefully they work great for you too!
