Quick & Simply Makeup
I think we can all agree that on a day to day basis we all need a quick morning routine that basically is as easy & as streamlined as possible. I don't know about you but I like to sleep until the very last possible moment! :) This blog is all about creating a simple routine, for the days where you don't have the time to be creative with your makeup!
- Liquid Foundation
I start out with the basics. Concealer. First conceal your under eye & any blemish or dark spots you don't want to see. Next apply your liquid foundation. Then blend the two out creating a flawless canvas. I recommend either a kabuki brush or beauty blender to blend out foundation & concealer.

Next I would bronze up the face with a powder bronzer. The application does not have to be precise, it is only meant to make your skin look like it has been kissed by the sun or give it color! Apply the bronzer starting at your ear & angled towards your chin diagonally. Move the brush is circular motions while you are doing this. By moving your brush in circular motions you are ensuring that you are not creating a hard line. Then you can bronze the highest points of your forehead. Be careful to not bring the product too low or you will start to look too bronzed.

This step is completely optional if you have amazing brows. If you do I envy you, because this is the most precise I have to be in my day to day makeup. Grab your brow pencil, my favorite is Anastasia Brow Definer. Lightly begin to draw the outer portion of your brows & work your way to the center with lighter strokes that mimic hair.

Lastly add the final touches that really bring the look together & help you look more awake! Pop on a little mascara, dust the apples of your cheeks with a pretty pink blush (or whatever your favorite color is), and add a feminine gloss & you are out the door!

Doesn't this sound easy enough ? I think so ! If you get good at this process I promise you, you can complete it within 10-15 minutes!
*If you are a little extra :), then you can add a pop of highlighter on your cupid bow, nose & inner corner of your eyes.
