Quick Everyday Makeup!

Hello, friends!! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my 'Quick Everyday Makeup'.  I really did it just for fun.  I didn't think anyone would actually watch it, especially all the way through!! 😂 🤣 😂

If you missed the video and want to see it, go to my Instagram profile and you'll see little pink circles.  The first one says 'Quick Everyday Make Up'.  I think you'll get a good laugh! 😜

First of all let me just put this out there... I am not a beauty blogger!  Definitely not a professional! I'm just a simple gal over 50 that enjoys makeup! 😍  This is the real me! No filters, no wrinkle smoothing. It's just what happens when we age... 🤷🏻‍♀️

I just like makeup!

I got so many comments and questions, that I thought I'd put together a little blog post on it.

For the most part, I use drugstore products and will link them all here.  I'm very frugal (AKA CHEAP!!) and I just can't see spending big bucks on makeup that really doesn't perform any better than the cheaper stuff that I can pick up at Walmart, Target or even Amazon.

Usually, I can put this quick makeup look on in about 15-20 minutes... with no interruptions!

Quick Everyday Makeup!

Here's the list of products and they are linked to Amazon: (Amazon Affiliate Links)

L'Oreal Magic BB Cream - I love this for a quick foundation.  It magically matches your skin tone and just kind of smooths everything out.  I use the shade 'Light'.  It has a sheer coverage.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer - This concealer does the job.  It blends in easily and covers those dark circles.

Kat Von D Lock It Setting Powder - I can't say this is my ultimate favorite powder, but it's the one I'm reaching for right now.  I use this with my fingers to pat powder onto the concealer under my eyes and on any 'wrinkles'.  I feel that the heat from my fingers along with the powder, seems to set the makeup so it won't settle into wrinkles. 👍 . Then I use my big fluffy brush and dust my entire face to set makeup.

Maybelline Master Contour Kit - I've had this for almost 2 years! And it's still going strong!  I use the bronzer to contour my cheekbones, nose, forehead, and under my jawline.  The blush goes next. Then the highlighter.

L'Oreal Infallible Makeup Extender - I really like this setting spray.  The mist is super fine and it definitely does the job.  My makeup is still going strong after 8+ hours!

Wet N Wild Photofocus Eyeshadow Primer - Yes, I've used Urban Decay's eyeshadow primer and to be honest, I don't think that it's much better....  This is my second tube and you only use a tiny dot of it for both eyes. I use it right after the setting spray.  I feel it helps keep my eyeshadow in check.

Wet N Wild Eyeshadow in Brulee - I use this as a eyeshadow base.  It's a light neutral color. I try to put this on before my eyeshadow primer completely dries.

Back to the Maybelline Master Contour Kit.  I use this for my eyeshadow for a quick look.  I dip my angled brush into the bronzer and blush and use it in the crease of my eye. Simple and quick!

Rimmel Brow This Way -  I use this as my eyeliner... I know it's for your eyebrows and I have used it for that also.  I find it's a bit dark for me in the brow department.  Anyhoos... I use the gel side with an Elf Angled Brush to create my eyeliner, then use another little brush to add the powder to soften it up.

Wet N Wild Eyeshadow in Panther - This eyeshadow is perfect with the Elf Angled Brush.  I wet the brush, dip into the eyeshadow, tap off, then apply it at the base of my lashes.

L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara - I really like this mascara.  I like the long thing wand. (That way I don't seem to poke myself in the eye! 😜)  It adds length and volume.  I prefer the waterproof one.

L'Oreal Butterfly Sculpt Mascara - This wand is amazing!  I just love it.  I'm able to get super close to the roots of my lashes and make them full looking.  Also in the waterproof.

IT Cosmetics Brow Power - I've had this forever!  I like that its easy to use and give me just the right amount of color, not too dark, not too light.  I am interested in trying the Elf version of this.

Ardell Magnetic Accent Lashes - I am hooked.  I love them!  I the accents and the full ones.  I will have to say that I cut them down for my eyes.  The shape of everyone's eyes are different.  Some of the full lashes are too long, so I cut them to fit my eyes.  I find the more I use them, the easier they are to put on.  The newer ones also have their magnets hidden better.  Super easy.  I'll be doing a tutorial on them soon.

Let me know if you have any questions! The best way to get a question to me is email.
