Tips for Quick Makeup Look

Sometimes we just don’t have time in the morning to do a full face of makeup! It happens to me all the time so I found a way to look nice and refreshed while only spending about 3 minutes and using 4 items!

Here I am with no makeup. (Yikes!)

Here are the products I used:

Maybelline Colossal:

I’ve talked about this mascara before and will continue to say how wonderful it is! Putting on mascara will really open up your eyes and make you look refreshed!

Revlon Photo Ready Concealer:

This concealer has been working great for me so obviously it is something that I use almost daily. The coverage is great but it’s not heavy! It also adds some bightens yet conceals any under eye dark circles!

ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder:

Great for a quick sweep of bronzer and blush all in the same container. Using this will really sculpt your face and it’s really quick to apply!

NYX Color Lip Balm:

I finished off the look with a lip balm that provides color and moisture in one tube!

Here is the final look!

I look refreshed and ready for a wonderful day.

Hope you guys enjoyed this!

What’s in my travel makeup bag!

This weekend I’m in Orlando to see my boyfriend and as I was packing I thought about being really good with the amount of makeup I took! On this particular trip, I was only taking a carry on just because I didn’t want to trot around with a huge bag for just one weekend. I went light on my makeup bag with which is pretty impressive and I’m pretty happy with myself! I also knew that I would go shopping so downsizing the amount of clothes wasn’t that hard.

In this post, I will share with you all what I take in my makeup bag for one weekend.

This may look like a long list but it really isn’t! I was also able to fit it all in this cute Zebra and Pink bag from Marshalls! Of course I carry this with my on the plane because I’m always scared about something breaking if I check it in or even put it up with my carry on.

Is this a good list or should I have taken less? Tell me about how you all travel!

Concealer!

Good Morning everyone and Happy Monday!

I got a request from MommyHoodtoTheHeart to highlight some concealers that have been good to me and I have 2 that I have been using that I feel confident enough to share and recommend with you all!

Cover Girl Simply Ageless Concealer

This has been the concealer that I have been using for months and I have been thoroughly impressed by it. I got it for a littler over $12 so it was a pretty pricey but the pot it comes in has a lot of product and it has lasted me quite a while. I use my finger and pat it lightly under my eyes and it works really great. I always make sure to put the powder I use that day to set it, therefore it will last much longer throughout the day. It also works great with any blemishes that need coverage. My favorite part about this concealer is the way it blends so gracefully!

Revlon Photo Ready Concealer

This has been my newest concealer purchase as I mentioned in my first ever blog post! I got this in a darker shade for the summer since I will probably get a little bit of color. I have not used this concealer as long as the Cover Girl but so far, so good. This is a thicker consistency than the Cover Girl concealer but still blends very well and offers pretty full coverage. I really like that it’s in a stick instead of a pot because the application is a little easier. I also got this on a really good deal, so always look out for a deal since it runs for almost $13 at some places.

All in all, both concealers are great! It depends on your preference. Do you prefer a stick or a pot container? As I mentioned, watch out for deals since they can both run more than $10 at some stores. The name of the concealers have links to pretty good deals so check those out!

Here is a picture of me with no makeup and one with each of the concealers on!

Although I have these two, there are still a few concealers I have been wanting to try!

Benefit Erase Paste

MAC Studio Finish Concealer

Sonia Kashuk Concealer Palette

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind

Hope this was helpful! What are you favorite concealers!?
