If you’re anything like us, you’re the type of girl who’s always on the go. In addition to your mini collection of lip glosses in every crevice of your purse, you probably have an extra pair of shoes and an external battery charger to juice up your phone. And, while we all have the same time as Beyoncé (correction: she probably has her own time zone), doesn’t mean we can spend hours on our beauty routine before heading out the door to conquer the world, because you’re a #BOSSBABE, and you got shit to do.
That’s why we figured it might be a good idea to help our fellow lady friends out by creating three fresh-faced looks that only require five products or less (with some repeat offenders). While each look accentuates one facial feature (lips, eyes, skin), all three beauty routines have one thing in common: more time in your bank.
Step 1: Use Nars Blush Duo bronzer on the inside of your cheeks to create and temple to create definition and then swipe the blush on the apples of your cheeks for a pop of color.
Step 2: Use one coat of L’ Oréal Luminous Lashes mascara on the top and bottom lashes.
Step 3: Swipe Tisane Lip Balm on your lips to add some moisture and then lightly pat it into your lips to seal it in.
Step 4: Fill in your lip with NYX lip liner auburn and blend it in with a small brush to create a stain look.
Step 5: Use Mac Rebel lipstick on your lips with a brush and blend it into the lip.
Step 1: Fill in your brows with Anastasia brow wiz dark brown pencil. No harsh lines and lightly feather it out.
Step 2: Use Glossier’s Boy Brow in brown and lightly stroke it through the brows.
Step 3: Point the brush towards the lashes and pull out to create a spider-like effect with L’ Oréal Luminous Lashes mascara on your lashes.
Step 4: Use Glossier’s Coconut Balm, or any of their new glosses, with a lip brush on your lips and on the lids of her eyes.
Step 5: Add Cynthia Rowley Pink Blush to your lips and cheeks with your middle finger and lightly pat on the apples of the cheek and bring it up towards your hair line. Then, lightly pat it on to your eyes.
Step 1: Use Inglot concealer, one shade darker buffed over the skin to give a light coverage.
Step 2: Swipe Pat McGrath Skin Fetish (the balm side) on the cheek bones, lids, Cupid’s bow, and down the nose.
Step 3: Replicate the same as above with the other side of Skin Fetish’s shimmer right on top.
Step 4: Lightly blend in Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics’ Lip tar in Kimber on the cheeks.
Step 5: Mix together the Lip Tar with Glossier’s Coconut Balm Dotcom 0n the lip.
