Let’s be honest, we all have those days when we are ready to just netflix and chill. I’m talking no makeup, sweats on and it’s only 4 pm. Those are some of the best days, am I right? And then we get a text or a call from boyfriend saying, be ready in 30 min. Maybe, you’re sister texts and says, “hey come with me I’m going to so and so.” Or you just don’t feel like doing the most that day. The main point is you need quick makeup because you don’t want to go out looking like bigfoot.

The days I just want or need something quick, I like to focus on making my skin really glow. I first prime my face with the Marc Jacobs primer to hydrate my face and help smooth everything out. Then I like to use this little sample from Cover Fx. It is a sample of the Custom Enhancer drops in Moonlight that helps highlight your face. I like to put a drop or two on the tops of my cheeks, above my brow bone, down my nose, and my cupid’s bow. I will then, grab a concealer brush and apply some concealer onto any blemishes I may have.
To keep the glow going, I use the CC+ Illuminating cream from It Cosmetics as my “foundation”. I want quick makeup, so I’m not trying to do full coverage, I’m focusing on glow skin. I like to use a duo fiber brush to apply it so that it’s not packed on, just a nice even finish. Then I spend some time on my brows, not as much as usual, but enough that they look nice and full. No matter what makeup look I do, I always give my brows good attention. I clean them up a little bit with some concealer and move on to the next step.
For the next part I’m finishing up my face and that means more highlighter and some blush. The NYX Strobe Genius palette is one of my favorites because of the variety of colors. In this look I use the champagne color in the left corner and apply it everywhere I applied the Cover Fx drops. Moving on from that, I take my favorite cream blush for my cheeks. This is just a natural rosey shade and use my fingers to tap it into my cheeks.
On my eyes I use that same highlighter shade from my Nyx palette and with my fingers apply it to my lids. Then I use a light tan eyeshadow to lightly contour my lids, I put this only in my crease. My favorite mascara at the moment is the Colossal Big Shot Mascara from Maybeline. Swipe a little bit of that on my lashes and I’m almost ready to go. In any quick makeup or natural makeup look I do I always use a lipstick shade that is close to my natural lips. I’ve been reaching for my Ofra Cosmetics Lipstick in Bel Air, which is a perfect nude pink for me. After I’ve slapped that on I am ready to go!
