As the school year continues and midterms approach, I find myself with less and less time for getting ready in the morning. At this time of year, sleep tends to take priority over winged eyeliner and a blinding highlight.
Here are a few of my favorites products for when you only give yourself a few minutes to get ready, but still want to look alive and awake.
- Concealer – Maybelline Fit Me
A little bit of concealer can really help liven up your entire face, especially if you have really dark circles under your eyes like I do. This one from Maybelline is easy to use and gets the job done without being too cakey or dry.
2. Brow gel – L’Oreal Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara
I am that person that ALWAYS has my brows done. When I am in a hurry and don’t have time for all the steps, this brow gel can work in a pinch to add color and fullness.
3. Mascara – L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara
Mascara is key to making your eyes look more awake and alive. My current favorite is the L’Oreal Lash Paradise that makes your lashes long and full and it never smudges.
4. Bronzer – Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer
Using a bit of bronzer on my cheeks always makes me look a little less like I’ve been sitting inside studying for days, and a little more like I am still on summer break at the pool. The Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer is very natural and makes application easy. It also smells like a tropical heaven AND is currently on sale at Ulta.com!
5. Lipgloss – Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb
Finally, I don’t go anywhere without my Fenty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow. This product looks good on every skin tone and can really liven up your whole face. Rihanna always has our back.
These 5 steps are my go-to during busy times of the year. Makeup is meant to be fun, and whether you do zero, all or even more than this, that’s totally cool! You do you boo.
