Spring Fresh: (5 minute natural and glowy makeup routine)

5 minute natural & glowy makeup routine

When I need to throw myself together quickly I opt for minimal makeup, focusing on lush lashes, glowing skin and sheer, rosy lips.  This is one of my favorite looks for the spring and summer and can easily be glammed up by using a bright lipstick instead.  Here’s how I got this fresh, dewy look in just a few minutes.


{Benefit Benetint, NARS Copacabana Illuminator, Maybelline Green With Envy quad, Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Branded, CoverGirl LashBlast, Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer, Korres Wild Rose lip butter}

Get the look: 

Step 1:  Apple the Barely Branded Color Tattoo shadow all over lid with your finger

Step 2:   Mixing the two light champagne colors in the Maybelline quad, apply all over lid and up into brow bone

Step 3:  Line upper lid using a black or dark brown eyeshadow and an eyeliner brush (with a look this subtle and natural, eyeliner pencils can look too harsh.  Using eyeshadow as a liner looks much softer}.  If you do use an eyeliner just smudge it to soften the look.

Step 4:  Apply tinted moisturizer all over face

Step 5:  Apply your concealer in a triangle shape under eye and blend well

Step 6:  Dot a few drops of Benetint on apples of cheeks and blend well.  Repeat until you have achieved the rosy shade you want.

Step 7. Blend a small amount of NARS Copacabana illuminator (or any liquid highlighter) onto cheekbones and down center of nose.  Use sparingly.

Step 8:  Apply several coats of mascara, don’t forget your bottom lashes!

Step 9:  Apply Benetint stain to your lips and blend well, then top with a bit of Korres Wild Rose Lip Butter for the perfect flushed, rosy lips.

I hope you liked this look!  It can be easily recreated with other products…all you really need is a tinted moisturizer, champagne eyeshadow, a rose colored lip and cheek stain, rose colored lip balm, illuminator and lots of mascara!  Also, spritzing your face with a toner or facial water (like this) will enhance the dewiness!  Have a wonderful Monday beauties!
