5 Minute Fall Makeup

5 Minute Fall Makeup

I’m going to be really honest – I love wearing a full face of makeup but on an every day basis I don’t have time for that. Sometimes, I just have to rush and I can’t take up 30 minutes or an hour to get ready. So I decided that this fall I will keep my makeup simple and autumnal. I like to think of this as updated autumn inspired makeup look.

So today, I’m going to share with you my 5 minute everyday makeup routine. If you want to see in details my makeup routine for this season, keep reading!

The first thing I do is – Apply my skincare products to make sure my skin is hydrated. My skin is dry and I really want it to be totally hydrated and soft.

When starting with my makeup, I start with applying a primer. I’ve been using the Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer. This primer is absolutely amazing and gives my face a smooth and a very hydrating feel. Also, it smells incredibly amazing and I totally love it. You can wear this primer alone too, it looks so natural and feels so comfortable almost like I’m not wearing anything.

Next thing I do is apply my foundation. I’m using the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation and I’m smitten by it. I fell in love with the foundation on the first use.  I have been wearing it every day since then and I’m totally obsessed.  It’s lightweight and feels like I’m not wearing anything at all. The foundation feels so comfortable on my skin and it gives medium to full coverage. My face literally looks FLAWLESS with this on. I love the fact that it looks all natural and covers pores and everything.  It has a matte finish, and the pigmentation is absolutely amazing. It leaves me with a gorgeous dewy look and instantly makes my skin look brighter and more luminous.

Next step is concealer. I kinda have dark circles, so I use the Maybelline INSTANT AGE REWIND® ERASER DARK CIRCLES TREATMENT CONCEALER to cover them up. It gives great coverage and it really melts into my skin and helps brighten up my face.

Now it’s time to set the liquids. So I use the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder – it keeps me matte throughout the day and healthy looking glow to my skin. It’s really the best setting powder I have used. the powder blends into my skin really nicely and it doesn’t get cakey, at all!

I like using pink colours for my cheeks during this season. So I use the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Collection in Diffused Heat. I love the packaging and the pigmentation is incredible. They have a luminous but not sparkly natural dewy looking finish and last all day long.

I literally can’t go out without applying highlighter, I just totally love putting on highlighter and how it looks on my skin. Recently, I’ve been using the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Girl Next Door/Chic Phreak, and I’m in love with it. The formula is amazing and it gives a natural radiance. Rihanna has done an absolutely amazing work with her products, and the range is amazing. I totally love the highlighter, and I’m thinking of buying more shades.

For the face, that’s about it. So let’s move onto eyebrows. I like my brows when it looks natural, so I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow in Medium Brown, and it gives them just the look I want for my brows.

Also, I always feel like eyeliner makes me look bold, and I love how it defines my eyes. I use a Mac eyeliner, and it doesn’t take up a lot of time at all. The last thing I would like to do for my eyes is top it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. It’s perfect, and gives a lot of volumes without being gooey looks beautiful.

Lastly, let’s move on to lips. No makeup is complete without lipstick. The best lip colour is one that works seamlessly with any look. I have been using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Rum Punch, and it literally screams autumn to me! Also, how chic is the packaging? I feel like lipstick is the best part and I always feel more put together when I have a lip on.

So, that’s my 5-minute makeup routine.
