How Lazy Winters Inspired Me to Do This Quick Morning Makeup Look
There's no shame in admitting that absolutely all of us feel like it's an impossible mission to get up on a winter morning. However, we all have to face the sad fact that we have to leave our blankets, and wake up to our daily responsibilities. Because I can relate so much to that struggle, I decided to bring you all the details you need to do this quick and easy morning makeup look. I do this every morning when I'm in a hurry. It is super affordable, saves me effort, and guess what? It only takes 5 minutes!
So let's get right into the steps:
1. First, I moisturize my face and prime it. This step is crucial to avoid any skin breakouts. I personally use my travel size Primerizer from Smashbox, for it does both jobs at once. However, if you're on a tight budget, you can use the Maybelline baby skin primer and moisturize your face with coconut oil.
2. Afterwords, I use no more than 2 drops of my foundation under my eyes, and I use my fingers to gently dab them in to get a smooth blend which surely helps to give a natural almost-no-makeup look. I use the Maybelline FitMe foundation.
PS: You can use a concealer instead; all what matters is that it matches your skin tone.
3. Here's the magical tip, I use the Maybelline Matte Sensational lipstick (Shade: 986 Melted Chocolate) to give a light tint to both my cheeks and lips! Remember, dab the lipstick on the lips, and apply a little product on the cheeks then rub with your hands to blend the color into your skin. This will help you achieve a more natural fresh look than using a powder blush!
4. Because an eyeliner could be too bold, I don't prefer it for a morning look. So I use a very little amount of any dark eye shadow and apply it carefully, close to my upper lash line. I use the darkest shade from L'Oreal's Nude Rose eyeshadow palette which is very budget friendly. Tip: Prime your lids well before you apply the shadow to guarantee it staying on all day.
