5 Product Face


It's safe to say I'm usually a few minutes late to work every morning. Morning's are hard for me to pull myself from the comforts of the bed and get on with my day. So a quick and easy routine that makes me look somewhat put together is a must to speed things up. Here's five products that do just that.

Usually I'd start with the Stila One Step Correct, but if I'm really crunched for time it's straight to the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue. It's hydrating enough you really don't need a primer, plus it has SPF 30 to make sure your skin is protected from the sun. It blends out super quickly and evenly with fingers and provides just the right amount of coverage to get rid of any redness. I've already purchased a back up I love this so much.

Next is concealer to tackle under eye circles and any remaining redness. My current favorite is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Concealer. Don't let the weird smell put you off, it's definitely one of the best I've ever tried. It does require a bit of touching up throughout the day if you're having a long one, but I'm more than willing to pop into a bathroom for a touch-up than have a mediocre one that lasts all day.

I quickly fill in my brows with the Anastasia Brow Wiz in "Soft Brown." On days where I have a bit more time I'll spend a few extra minutes on this step to perfect them, but usually it's a quick, dirty job and the Brow Wiz does a great job at keeping up.

A quick curl of the lashes and then I apply whatever mascara I'm using at the time. Currently I've been loving butterLONDON's Iconoclast Mega Volume Lacquer Mascara. One of the weirdest brushes I've used, but once I figured out the correct way to work it, this mascara has become a fast favorite for volume and lots of length.

Before I dash out the door I apply whatever MAC lipstick is closest at hand. Usually it's "Syrup" for a nice, natural looking lip and I'm good to go. I swear if I had to only live with one brand of lipstick it would be MAC. I know a lot of people seemed to have moved on from the brand, but I never feel more spoiled than when I purchase a new MAC lipstick. I may have already picked up a couple as early birthday presents to myself!

Efficiency in makeup has become my forte. Although I love taking the time to really perfect a look with tons of steps, this five step process gets the job done in no time flat.

What five products do you use on a daily basis?

xoxo Kayla
