5 Minute Summer Makeup Routine

Hot and Sunny days are ahead, and this time of year I love to take advantage of a lighter, faster makeup routine.  

No need to look super made up at the pool right?!  Plus if you are a sweater (which I am, haha) - then you don't need to be wiping off makeup all day.  So here's my 5 minute, 5 step routine to get out the door!

1. Tinted moisturizer - I like this better than a BB or CC cream as it is light and spreads easily - but still covers minor discoloration, spots, etc.  I use NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska -- I am naturally pretty fair skinned and you don't want a moisturizer to be darker than your skin, especially as the base for your makeup.

2. Bronzer - I am OBSESSED with my new Chanel  "Soleil Tan De Chanel" - it is a Universal Bronzing Makeup Base, and its not a powder, more like a hard mousse that you apply with a brush.  I love the color it gives and it is nice and matte with just a little glimmer - no glitter up in here!

3. Brow Pencil - I use Anastasia's Brow Definer in Medium Brown to add definition and volume where I need it, it is quick and easy and stays on all day!  just pencil in where you need a little extra brow.

4. Blush - This Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Stick Face Color.  I think its a great blush for a "no makeup" look, plus it is super easy to apply, just swipe and then rub in with one finger in a circular motion up your cheek bone.

5. Lastly, Mascara - I am using Pacifica Stellar Gaze these days...it is cruelty-free, vegan, and naturally hydrating for your lashes - which is important to me as my skin/hair/etc are typically dry.  Plus it is super black and volumizing.  Perfect with just a few swipes.


..and Go!  That's it and that's my 5 minute routine.  What are your favorite products? 

PS: Cant wait to see how many of you make fun of me for phone case after this....
