Minimal Makeup Look

There are some days when I snooze my alarm 3 times & then need to get ready fairly quickly. Those are always the days my skin looks dull. So here is my “no makeup” makeup look….


This look takes about 3 makeup products. It is super easy & super quick. 

Step 1: Apply the Maybelline Age Erase Concealer (the one with the sponge on the end) under your eyes, and where you have any blemishes. I use it where i have redness on my nose and right on my chin. 

Step 2: I lightly contoured my nose and my jawbone otherwise I look like I’m 7. Then I highlight the inner corner of my eyes, my cheekbones, my browbone, and the tip of my nose. I use the Smashbox 3-Step Contour Kit.

Step 3: Apply the Clinique High Impact mascara to your top lashes (and bottom if you want). I really like to do both because I have no issue with going a lil’ extra with my eyelashes.

Step 4: (optional) Apply the Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm, my favorite color is Red Dahlia.

Step 1: In the Summer I don’t usually wear concealer because my freckles come out and I love to show them, but when I do I either wear the Clinique Line Smoothing concealer or the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer.

Step 2: I’ve been loving Colourpop’s La La Super Shock Shadow. I use my finger to apply this color all over my lid and then blend it out usually using wanderer or force of nature from the Tarte Amazonian Clay Matte palette.

Step 3: I add the Becca Highlighter in Moonstone to my inner corner and blend it a little towards the center of my eyelid. If I’m not feeling the shimmery look I’ll use one of the matte colors from the Tarte palette.

Step 4: I use the Jane Iredale eyeliner in black (because I haven’t sharpened my brown one, yet)

Step 5: I apply the contour color from the Smashbox Step-by-Step Contour Kit under my cheekbone, on the sides of my nose, and I blend it down my neck, too. (I haven’t ever used the bronze color)

Step 6: I apply the highlighter from the same palette and apply it under my browbone (after brushing through my eyebrows with a spooly), on my cheekbones, on the tip of my nose, and on the top of my lip

Step 7: I love the L’oreal Butterfly Mascara, it makes my eyelashes long, not clumpy. I very much like my eyelashes being separated. I apply this to my top and bottom lashes

Step 8: I’ve been in love with the Colourpop Ultra Blotted lip collection. My favorite color in the collection is Zuma (it’s like my lip color but way prettier). These formulas are transfer-proof which is my favorite part, I’ve never been one to wear lip products besides chapstick.
