Remember a couple months ago when I said I had gotten into the bad habit of staying in bed as late as possible and putting on a quick bit of makeup once I got to work? Well, I've been doing it again. But this time, I've made a little bit more of an effort with more products used, but I'm still able to slap it all on super quickly.
I've been starting by dotting the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Aquacealer all over my face and blending it in with a Beautyblender. It blends in super quickly and gives great coverage while still looking skin-like. I have yet to try the foundation from this line, but if it's anything like the concealer, I think it would be love. Next I brush through my brows with the Glossier Boy Brow in Brown - this is the perfect one-step brow product, as it defines and sets my brows at once. There's a new Clear shade out now that I love using when I've already filled my brows in with a pencil.
I've actually been using eyeshadow, even when I'm in a super rush, because the Smashbox Cover Shot Eyeshadow Palette in Golden Hour is really easy to use on-the-go. The palette itself is the perfect travel size, so it easily fits into my tiny makeup bag. The shadows also apply easily and blend nicely with just a finger, so I don't even have to stash any brushes in my desk. I've been using the third pink shade all over my lid and then dabbing a little bit of the purple-bronze shade next to it in my outer corners for a little more definition. I then quickly tightline with the Colourpop Creme Gel Liner in Brew-Haha - it glides on quickly and stays put all day. For mascara my latest obsession has been the Wander Beauty Unlashed Volume & Curl Mascara. It gives me the exact lash look I've been looking for - super fluttery, fanned-out, and curled. It's not waterproof, but it still lasts the whole day on me, so I'm sold.
I've hopped back on the blush bandwagon, and I think it's because the Milk Makeup Blush Oil is so easy to use. I have the shade Ripe, which is a lovely neutral pink. You just click the bottom of the pen, roll a little on your cheeks, and blend out with a finger. It adds the nicest dewy flush to the cheeks that I've been super into. I can't go a day without highlighter, and I've still been striping on the Glossier Haloscope in Quartz - it's my ultimate favorite for a dewy sheen.
For lips, I happened to find the Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Glace floating around at the bottom of my work bag a couple weeks ago, and I've fallen back in love with it. The formula is beautiful and comfortable, yet long-lasting because it's matte. The shade Glace is a lovely mauve-y brown shade that adds just a hint of definition to the lips without being too bold - just my kind of shade.
