{five minute} MAKEUP!

I'm in a rush almost every morning.
Let's face it... I like my sleep. 

If I've only got a few minutes to spare for makeup application, these are the quick steps I use.

First, I'll apply Origins Vita Zing all over a clean face.

This is a moisturizer with a tint of color, but it's not exactly considered a "tinted moisturizer."
It comes out of the tube white, but turns the color of your skin after application. 
You know what, let's just let Tiffany do the explaining.

Can't forget an eye cream!
I love Clinique All About Eyes.

Then, I'll apply concealer to my under-eye area.

MAC Studio Finish SPF Concealer

About a year ago, I set out on a quest to find the perfect concealer. 
Literally, I tested out almost every concealer you can imagine, from Laura Mercier, to Tarte, to Bobbi Brown, to Nars, to Benefit, etc. ( I could go on & on)
This concealer wins by a long shot, in my opinion. 
It creases less than others, brightens my under eye area more than others, and is much more pigmented than the other competitors. 
Yes, it is a bit thick, but when applied with a light hand (and over an eye cream), it can look very natural! 

Then, I'll warm up my skin with bronzer.
My favorite is Nars Laguna.

Can't forget a pop of color on those apples!

My {current} blush of choice is MAC Well Dressed.

I absolutely have to have a hint of eyeliner, even if it's just lightly smudged around my eyes.

Usually I do a slight cat eye with a black gel liner, but when I'm on the go....

Urban Decay 24/7 in Stash

If you have green, hazel, or brown eyes, this is for you. 

I have hazel, so the green/gold tones of this eyeliner really bring out the color of my eyes. 
It stays put all day, too!

Add your favorite mascara and lip gloss & you're out the door! 

For mascara, I prefer L'Oreal Million Lashes.

and for gloss, Nars Angelika.

This gloss brightens your face unlike any other lip product I've used! 
The blue tones in it make your teeth look whiter, too!

Maybe I'll share my "regular" makeup regimen sometime soon! It's not too much different, just a little more detailed, with the addition of a few more products.

What is your five minute makeup routine like? 

Goodnight loves. Xo.
