Have you ever been in a rush to go somewhere but your face looked like a sleepy marshmallow ? Of course you have ! Usually in the morning before work I try to get as much sleep as possible without skipping a shower, and most of the time that means no makeup. And some days I do go without makeup. Occasionally, however, I have days when going without makeup is not an option. For those days, I have a few staple products that get the job done.
I bought this as apart of a clearance skincare haul from Target a few weeks ago.
It contains 1 fluid ounce of product and matches skin tone really well. Honestly, its far too greasy for my combination/oily skin, but I still like it. I just dust a light bronzer or powder over my face periodically. Now that I think about it, thats sad. I need to go get a new foundation.
2. Revlon Photo Ready Bronzer in 100 "Bronze & Chic"
Love this. It has 4 shades of bronzer in the compact so the combination matches my skin tone in winter and summer. It works really well in the summer because it doesn't get greasy like my cream bronzer from ELF (which I love in winter). I contour with it, but mostly just dust around my hairline and all over for a subtle glow.
3. Elf Mineral Blush in "Peachy Cheeky"
This is my blush and highlight for those days that I don't have a lot of time to do my makeup. I love this shade and it has shimmer in it so it reflects the light on my cheekbones. It was $3 and a perfect staple for anyone's makeup bag. They didn't have it at Target (where I normally buy elf products) so I bought it online. They always have great deals online. If you give them your email address, they'll practically beat your door down with deals.
4. Elf Eyebrow Kit
Great holiness I love this product. It was $3 and it is perfect. It comes with a mini dual ended brush with a powder brush on one end and an angled one on the other. If I had to be stranded on a desert island with one makeup product....I would take this. I would be hungry and sun burned and sad with beautiful eyebrows. Got it from Target !
5. Liquid eyeliner pen from BH Cosmetics
I received this as a giveaway from Generation Beauty. I liked it so much that I went back the second day of giveaways for another one. This is the first liquid liner pen that I've actually liked. I never do well with them and my eyes always end up looking insane. Anyway, this one works for me.
6. Pacifica Color Quench Lip Tint in "Guava Berry"
I swore this would suck when I got it from the Pacifica booth at Gen Beauty. It wasn't until this week that I actually tried it. Boy was I wrong about it, it is beautiful on. It feels and smells great, and its made with 100% vegan ingredients. It adds just enough color and moisture to your lips. Lovely product. When this runs out, I will be purchasing another.
This is just a small representation of my makeup bag. When I have ample time, I use many more products--not because I have to, but because I want to. I love makeup and I have a lot of fun with it, so when I get the chance I go all out.
On those days that I need to save time, these products get the job done and make me feel fresh faced and ready for the day.
What 5 or 6 products do you use on the go ? Leave me a comment and let me know what gets your ready quick, fast, and in a hurry.
