I CAN’T BELIEVE I HAVEN’T DONE THIS YET. Sorry, guys. After, maybe, a month of perfecting, I have a routine that will cut down your bathroom (or wherever-you-get-ready room) time in half. I’ve gotten it down to 15 minutes, but you might be even quicker than that.
0:00 Prime & Protect I love La Roche Posay’s Anthelios 50 Daily Anti-Aging Primer with Sunscreen. Because it’s two-in-one, you don’t have to wait for a billion creams and primers to sink in before getting started. Just one!
0:30 BEST TIME SAVING TOOL EVER. The Two Faced 3-Way Lash Lining Tool is the actual shit. It’s a flat, three-pronged, felt tip liner that is perfect for lash lining and cat eyes. And it’s pretty much waterproof! Dis shit’s a makeup routine game changer, le’me tell ya.
3:00 Now that it’s spring, I’m easing up on my foundation application. So, I pretty much just spot cover up my blemishes so that my bare skin can shine through.
4:30 First coat of mascara! I’m super into Covergirl’s Flamed Out Mascara right now. It makes my lashes supes voluptuous.
5:30 This step I learned from my favorite beauty blogger, Maskcara. Using a nude colored liner and lining the water line under your eyes, really helps to open them up without looking harsh like white liner.
6:00 Bronze, bronze, bronze. Ya got to. YA GOTS TA.
6:30 Brows. This takes me forever because I am such a brow perfectionist. Never will I ever allow myself to leave the house with unfleeked eyebrows.
10:30 (Seriously, brows take me that long) Curl them lashes in that medieval torture device.
11:00 Blush! I’ve been almost exclusively using Maybelline’s Dream Bouncy Blush in Fresh Pink (also a Maskcara discovery!). It is by far the most perfect pink in the entire universe. Wow, I’m making a lot of definitive remarks today. Butit’strue.
11:30 Apply the final coat of mascara to your top lashes.
14:00 I apply a little bit of mascara to my lower lashes with the extra mascara left on the brush after doing my top lashes. I don’t want it super intense (there is a time and a place for the Twiggy look) so I rest the brush on the lower lashes and then lightly wiggle it. Weird, I know, but it works erry time.
15:00 Pull your hair into a side braid and gtfo the door. I mean, that’s usually how my days begin…rushing. Is that…is that normal? Also, you could just close your eyes and make a wish to your fairy godmother hoping for a good hair day and *POOF* it…it…you know, miiight come true.
Look how much time you saved! So take some extra time cuddling up to your snuggle buddy or keep that sexy dream going because you’ll be ready in no time!
