I did not feel like doing an elaborate look today. Wanted something quick and easy. In this post I have used some of my favorite products to create this quick 5 min look. I have to agree that these quick 5 min looks are some of my favorites.
I will start with the eye makeup, then face makeup and finally lips. For this quick look I have skipped using a face and eye primer and taken a few other short cuts.
I decided to use my trusted Urban Decay Naked Basics palette today. I used the shade Faint all over my eye. Then used Crave in the outer V. To blend the look together, I used MAC Texture(not in the picture). I used Foxy to highlight my under my brow bone. I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On eyeliner pencil in Perversion(not in the picture). Next, I used Charlotte Tilbury Magic Vanish Color Corrector under my eyes and then while doing my face makeup, I used a bit of the IT Cosmetics CC Cream on top of it and set it with the powder I used.
I filled my brows with Anastasia Beverly Hill Brow Definer in Dark Brown. Never skip this step. Eyebrows frame your face and can instantly make or break a look.
To get the look together I took a little bit of Faint and applied it under my lower lashline. I applied L’Oreal Voluminous Original Mascara after I finished my face makeup. Mascara is always the last step for me.
For this look, I used IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50+, that way I could skip the sunscreen. I have medium skin tone and the shade Medium Tan in IT Cosmetics matches perfectly. I set my makeup with Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder. Next I used MAC Mehr as a blush and it worked perfectly. I am loving Mehr these days. It is a perfect pink on medium skin tones.
I used MAC Mehr lipstick on my lips and cheeks for this look. It is a Matte Lipstick and such a flattering lipstick on multiple skin tones, I think. Mehr is a new favorite.
This is all I did to achieve my quick 5 min look with some of my favorite products.
