Ten Minute Makeup

Recently a friend told me she has 10 minutes, at most, to do her makeup. Please advise. Day to day that is about the time I spend on my "look" so I thought not only would I share my daily routine with her, but also with you:) The great thing about this system...you only need two brushes, one for bronzer and the other for blush.

1. First apply Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer over your skin using your fingers. I apply over a moisturizer and sunscreen, for me the Tinted Moisturizer is not enough. (My sister, Jessica, uses ColorStay Makeup by Revlon and loves it).

2. Next apply Laura Mercier Secret Concealer Anti-cernes under eyes using your middle finger and pat rather than rub (the skin under your eye is very delicate and using the pointer can apply a bit too much pressure)

3. Apply the Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Colour in the same fashion as the concealer but to the lid. A little goes a long way with this product. Pictured is Platinum but I also love it in Gold. Maybelline eye Studio Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow in Inked in Pink or Barley Branded will give you the same look.

4. Fill in those brows in a lite feathering motion. Loving TRISH McEVOY Precision brow Shaper

5. Bronzer. Apply with a brush where the Sun would hit for a soft glow. I adore NARS in Laguna. It lacks, thankfully, the hit of orange that so many other bronzers have. It's very brown/honey.

6. Smile! Place blush using a brush on the apples of your cheeks. I have found that NARS in ORGASM (the name in it's self will make you blush)looks good on everyone! I worked as a makeup artist for a few years, mostly weddings, and this was my go-to blush.

7. Mascara-I love buying this product at a drug store. Your mascara should be replaced every three months regardless how much you have left. Currently using COVERGIRL LashBlast Fusion in Black.

8. Are you running around all day without a moment to look in a mirror? Go with gloss. I love the Victoria Secret's Shiny KISS. I also covet Chanel lipgloss. Want a bold look...going out to dinner? Love M.A.C's matte colors. Pictured above is ALL FIRED UP and TRUST IN RED lip pencil.

If you have five minutes 1,2,5,6,8 (gloss).

I hope this helps you feel polished and saves you a bit of time during such a busy time of year!
