5 Minute Makeup Routine

First: Hide your dark circles & blemishes

Make sure to apply a moisturizer with SPF, this will help the concealer glide on smoothly.  Make sure to apply concealer only to areas that need it, like under the eye, dark circles, and blemishes.


Second, use a contouring color (I used bronzer) to draw lines in areas of the face that you like.  I typically always do the sides of my nose, sides of my cheeks – under the cheek bones, above my eyebrows more towards the sides of my face, and on each side of my chin to give it more definition. Buff in with a brush of your choice.  All the brushes I have used are going to be listed below.


Third, I apply cream blush to give me a glow within effect.  I apply to the cheeks area and blend the color with brush moving in a outward motion.  Be sure to work quickly because some liquid or cream blushes dry fast.


Fourth: Apply shimmery eye base to your eyelid using your pointer finger.  This will give your eyes radiance and make them appear larger than they really are – great technique.  Revlon has really good cream shadows in a variety of colors. I used Glammy Goes to by Essence.


Fifth, apply a gold or bronze shade of eye shadow and place it on your eyelid over your shimmer eye cream.  Using an all over eyeshadow brush will give you more control when doing this step.  Try to stay within your eyelash line and your crease area.  This makes your eyes POP.

Of course, I applied falsies, mascara and lip balm in “no color” for an all natural look.  You don’t have to use falsies, you can just apply mascara and build it up as thick as you’d like or what you are use to.
