10 Minute Makeup {My Routine}

Over the weekend, I received a reader request to share my makeup routine and I thought it was a great idea! I haven't done one in so long and I finally feel like I've found the RIGHT products that work for me + give me serious life in under 10 minutes. 

These are all my holy grail, can't live without 'em products! Here we go...

As far as foundation goes, I wear Maybelline's Dream Pure BB Cream during the week and on the weekends (or when I have somewhere special to go) I wear IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream (in medium.) Both even out my skin tone and conceal imperfections, but the IT Cosmetics CC cream really gives my skin that airbrushed look and goes on so smoothly. It covers what I need covered without looking like I have a ton of makeup on. It also has SPF50+ which is a must. 

In the summer, I love to wear MAC Studio Fix powder (I wear shade NW30 and apply it over either the BB or CC cream) because it keeps my face from looking oily and blends nicely. The brush I use to apply foundation is this one, which is the BEST foundation brush ever. Next up is the product I've been using the longest-Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind Eraser. I use it under my eyes to brighten + cover dark circles. When it comes to bronzers, I'm pretty picky. I've tried a bunch that I have loved but my current favorite right now is this compact (in 'Natural Glow') 

Eyeshadows...I rarely stray from my Naked2 Basics palette. It has 6 very versatile, matte shades that are perfect for everyday use. I wear the Skimp all over my lid up to my brow bone and the Frisk I use in my crease. I actually don't use eyeliner every single day, but when I do wear it I use Covergirl's Perfect Point Plus

A random find that I recently picked up was Loreal's Brow Stylist Plumper Brow Gel, and I'm so glad I decided to try it! I'm not good with brow pencils, so this is easier for me to use since you just swipe over your brows...it fills them in really nicely and I definitely think gives me a more 'finished' look when I use it! 

Last but not least...I've gotten a bunch of my girlfriends hooked on IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara. If you don't mind spending a little bit more than drugstore mascara, I promise you will love it.

There we have it! Let me know if you have any questions, or if you have an awesome product I need to know about. 

PS-If you haven't heard yet TODAY is Amazon Prime Day! I was so excited to snatch up an Echo Dot (marked down to $34!) for our bedroom! It will sync with our Echo that we use for our downstairs/outside areas. You can check out all the deals HERE! 


  1. I love reading along with your blog and I LOVE reading makeup routines, but I have one (minor) complaint. Since you have right-clicking disabled (I'm sure so no one steals your pics, which I 100% get), I can't right click your links and open them in a new tab so I have to keep clicking to the item, then back to your blog and back-and-forth. lol. Anyway, love reading and definitely checking out some of the items!

    1. I was literally just trying to fix this issue this morning! I think when I switched over to the new blog design it got messed up. It's fixed now! :) Thank you for letting me know too!

  2. I am all for easy makeup routines! It Cosmetics has been a favorite brand of mine as of late!

  3. Amazing friend, we don't get any of these products except MAC in South Africa but your make up is always stunning x
