Tips on Everyday Glam In A Rush

 

We’ve all been there, woken up to the realization that we’ve only got 30 minutes until we’re supposed to be out the door, on the way to work or our next class. Mornings (and sometimes afternoons or evenings) like this are the worst and they are also when time is the most important. Having these tips on how to do quick, easy and beautiful makeup can really come in handy.

Tips on Everyday Glam In A Rush

Keep it organized. This is the first and very most important step! Keep the makeup area organized. We do not have time to be looking all over the place for that bronzer we used two days ago or the setting spray that “I could of swore I had here yesterday”.

Have a quick face routine. Yes, foundation and contour is great for glam makeup, but that takes more time than we’ve got. Opts for a BB Cream and a nice bronzer. BB Cream can be very Hydrating, but also matte, so pick the best for your individual skin. Bronzer is great because it doesn’t have to be too precisely placed; a quick dust around the face will do. I recommend the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream and the Physcian’s Formula Butter Bronzer- They are both amazing!

Less IS more. YES. Don’t worry about eye liner- you don’t have the time. Put on some mascara on your top and bottom lashes and move on. Skip the eye shadow- that will be for another day and do not even attempt the lip liner- we don’t want wonky shaped lips! Add some nice lip gloss.

Skip Any time consuming brow routine Brow pomade is too time consuming! WE GOTTA GO! use a tinted brow gel and get to gettin’.

Spray the face with some setting spray real quick to seal the deal and go get dressed!

BB Cream Or Foundation?

 

It seems that most people use foundation these days, but I personally have always been a BB cream girl. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I really REALLY want to branch out and be a part of the foundation crew, but my skin is UBER sensitive. I could literally apply a foundation at 8AM and be breaking out by the end of the day. I don’t know what it is, but the heavy cream products clog my pores up so easily! I have tried a few different foundations such as Smashbox studioskin and the LOreal True match (which at the time, I thought would work because so many people said it’s great) but neither of these seemed to work with my skin. Honestly, I have never tried a foundation that didn’t irritate my skin and this really halted my testing them out. I can’t be spending my whole paycheck on foundations, even though I do really want to find one that works! I like the idea of foundation because sometimes I want a full glam look and I want my foundation to cover EVERYthing. Anyways, my ride or die product is the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream! I have worn this pretty much everyday for years now and it never breaks me out. The coverage is pretty light and the product goes on quickly, so it is great for everyday use. I thank God that my skin is pretty much always clear because I can get away with wearing this BB cream, even when I do glam looks. One con to the BB Cream team is that if I am breaking out, the world will have to see it for a while, cause me trying to put a full coverage foundation on will more likely than not cause more break outs!

So, are you the BB cream or Foundation type?

Get ready with me

 

Hey everyone! I am going to a wedding today, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for a get ready with me! One thing I always do is start with my eye makeup that way if any shadow falls onto the face, I do not mess up my whole face of makeup. I recommend trying this if you do not already!

I started by applying my concealer as an eye primer and then setting it with a skin colored powder. Any concealer or powder will work, I used my Fit Me concealer and my Fit Me powder

Then I went in with the lightest mauve-y color from my Oh- so -loved Carli Bybel palette.

I took this shade and put it lightly all over my eye lid and took it up to about my brow bone

Then I went in with the second darkest purple shade and mixed it with the matte brown. I took these colors and lightly blended them into my crease. REMEMBER TO TAKE YOUR TIME WITH THIS STEP! Really guys, make sure your shadow is blended the way you want it to be before moving on, or else it will look really sloppy later on in the look.

Next I went in with just the brown and put that in the outer V of my eye and lightly blended it so that it didn’t look too harsh

Then I took the golden shimmer shade on a wet brush and packed it on my lid, making sure to not cover the outer V that we just blended in the previous step.

After that I usually go in with my eyebrow powder. I do this step next because I like to have my eyebrows done to help guide me on how I do my liner and how far out I take it! I am big on natural brows just because my eyebrows are pretty full and they just look better on my face.

After brows I used my fav mascara and my fav liner real quick and I decided to go without lashes because I was rushing and I also think the look came out good without them!
Then, since this was an outdoor wedding, I went in with my r.o.d Hourglass Veil Mineral primer and my Matte BB Cream. This CoverGirl BB cream is great because it’s matte (great for outside days) and the coverage is thick for a BB cream!

Then of course I concealed my under eyes with my Fit Me concealer in the shade sand and I used my Fit ME powder to bake. TIP: if you do not have a loose powder to bake your under eye, just rub a plastic lid or the end of your brush on the powder and it will turn the top layer to loose powder!

Then I used my IBY Beauty palette to contour! I mixed contour one and Highlight shade 3, then I cut the contour with some yellow powder!

Then I used my ULTA brand blush highight duo because it gives a very nice peachy glow

The highlight I used was the second highlight shade in the Carli Bybel palette, which I’ve have hit pan on!

I used this lip liner

And this lip in the shade peaches and cream to top off the look!


Finally, my last step is setting the face with Mac Fix+! Any setting spray will do, I used this because it sets my makeup for all day!
