The No-Makeup Makeup Edit

Even though I mentioned in my May Goals that I would start playing with makeup more, I can't deny my love for minimal makeup at the moment. It's pretty much a look I've been wearing a ton, especially when my dad wants to make spur-of-the-moment plans to go out & wants to leave the house asap. Not only do I like this look because it's easy & fast to do (literally 10 minutes or less), but it's also a look that enhances natural beauty instead of hiding it.

The first thing I like to start off with is concealer to even out my skin. My go-to at the moment is the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. I've mentioned it tons of times on here and I know a bunch of other bloggers love it as well, so it needs no introduction. I focus it mostly on my cheeks, where there is a bit of acne scarring from my teenage years, and on my under eyes to brighten up the area. I skip the whole bronzer and contour gig and go straight for blush. I've been reaching for the Bite Beauty Multistick in Cashew a whole lot lately. Not only do I use this to add a flush, but when I have a few extra seconds to spare, I'll use this as a cream eyeshadow. Did you expect me to skip highlighter too? Nope! I love using Benefit's High Beam to add a pretty, yet natural looking glow. I also can't neglect my super (almost nonexistent) brows. Running Benefit Gimme Brow through my thin brow hairs gives 'em a little oomph without doing too much. To make my eyes look slightly larger and possibly less tired, I'll coat them in my favourite mascara, the Maybelline Lash Sensational. If you haven't tried this one yet, what the heck are you waiting for?! Last but not least, I'll throw on a 'my lips but better' shade. The one I've been using up is the Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Glacee, an oldie but a goodie.

What are your go-to products for a 'need to be out the door in 10' look?
