Five Minute Makeup routine

March 18, 2020
My day to day has certainly changed this last week and even though I'm working from home not really going anywhere, I still want to look put together since any of my meetings can turn into video conference calls. I shared a quick five minute makeup up routine on Instagram over the weekend and wanted to post it here as well. It's simple and makes me feel put together even if I'm wearing leggings & sweatshirt!
  • I start with the Aveeno Moisturizer - it's a staple for me because of how light it is and not greasy at all. 
  • The Too Faced peach perfect foundation is a really a great alternative to the IT cosmetics CC cream that I was using for years.  Even though it's a foundation, it's light to medium coverage so it doesn't feel heavy, plus it's buildable so you can add for more coverage. Bonus, it smells really good!
  • I will never not use the Becca cosmetics brightener under my eyes! It instantly makes me look like I had 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep, which I assure you is not the case ever! 
  • Huge fan of the Too Faced multi-sculpting concealer. The doe foot applicator makes application easy and once again it provides such great coverage without looking cakey. 
  • My favorite bronzers are by Physican's Formula and after my butter bronzer ran out I had this glow booster one ready to use. It's light enough to give you the right amount of glow without looking like you have a bad tan!
  • If I have to say one product I didn't know I needed until I used, it would be the Glossier cloud paint  cream blush. It is quite possibly my favorite beauty product ever. So easy to use and a little goes a long way. I've had this blush since October in the color soft peach. I'm tempted to buy all of the colors, it's that good!
  • The laura mercier cream stick is so easy to swipe and blend over your entire eyelid, then you're completely done. My current favorite color is "nude rose" from the new line.
  • You can finish with your favorite mascara, but I always swipe a little mascara primer to give my lashes more volume!

Are you still putting makeup on during the work week?


  1. You have me convinced I need to try that blush!!! I usually stick with orgasm or I love Milani as well!!! But I am thinking about switching to cream for my blush and highlight and I like the price point of this. Do you like this bronzer better than butter? My butter is about to hit pan.

  2. I use the same blushes that Nadine does but you totally had me convinced to try something different. I just love physicians formula bronzer‘s, wear them daily. You have some of the most beautiful skin I have ever seen! Hang in there girl!

  3. I have been wanting to try that Glossier cream blush for a while! Since I have such dry skin I try to use as many cream products as possible. Hope you're staying safe and healthy girly!

  6. The becca undereye is one of my absolute favorites too!!

  7. These looks like great products.. I like the cc cream and the under eye brightener.
    I don't wear make up on a daily bases..

  8. I haven't been wearing much makeup these days for obvious reasons, but when the time comes I want to try all your face products - the foundation and concealers sound great!


  9. Oh I will so have to try Becca's cosmetics brightener. I use their Backlight primer and I love it.

  10. I *need* that Becca brightener! I've had a lot of sleepless nights lately and could definitely use some to make my eyes look a little more, well, alive haha

  11. I love that mascara as well. Cheap, but so good. I love a quick 5 minute face!

  12. I have admittedly been putting less makeup on since on a typical day in the last week the only people to see my face are my three kids, haha. But putting it on DOES make me feel more like a regular human, so I think I'm going to make more of an effort! Love this quick routine - perfect for all of these video calls we'll all be having!

  13. I work from home and always put on a little of mascara, tinted moisturizer and fill in my eyebrows just in case. Your makeup looks beautiful! I need a new blush and need to try the cloud paint!

  14. You look gorgeous, of course! I did conference calls last week with a few staff members, but I'm going to try video calls tomorrow... so it's going to be a little bit of make up for me. We'll see how it goes... I was already short on make up... might need to try some of these products going forward, lol.
