TEN MINUTE BEAUTY ROUTINE
Truly, in the winter I love my bed more than my beauty station so- I don't leave myself a lot of time to get ready. I have come up with a routine that pulls me together within 10 minutes that lasts me throughout the day! Here is the steps I take to go from bedhead to work glam!
1. Coffee, Coffee and um.. Coffee
I need it or nothing is happening.. Luckily its automatic and already in a pot made because technology is great..
Depending on what your skin type is you can use one, the other or both. I use primer because my combo skin tends to act up later on in the day. Also, SPF is so important, or any other form of skin protection. Creating a base to keep makeup on is extremely important for longevity and smoothing out the complexion.

Velvet Perfection Primer $30 Purchase Velvet Perfection Primer!

3. Foundation and Spot Conceal
I find less is more with foundation in 2019, I still love baking but I'm not about all the cake. The new trend for this year is using a medium coverage foundation and spot concealing so you do not feel the heaviness throughout the day. I also find it wears off more evenly. Highly recommend this method for not only time-saving but also when doing glam. Fewer products means less movement and the other products you put on top of your base go on smoother.

Camouflage Concealer $14 Purchase Camouflage Concealer!

4. Contouring Blush
Two birds same stone.. A dark cool mauve blush lifts the cheeks but still gives a tint of rosiness to the face. I also recommend to find one without too much shimmer.
5. "Bronzer"? or Eyeshadow?
I have been using my bronzer in my crease as a everyday eyeshadow look for years.... Not only does it pull minimal makeup looks together but the simplicity of the look and the build-ability of a face powder is extremely easy to use. If you prefer to not use a bronzer, a good taupe brown eyeshadow will do the trick as well.
6. Lots' of Lash
I refuse to do eyeliner when I am running late, I have learned from my mistakes and trust me there has been a lot of mornings where I tried to be that girl. To give me the most definition I apply a couple extra coats of mascara!

Sensitive Eyes Mascara $16 Purchase Sensitive Eyes Mascara!
This water-based formula lengthens, separates, volumizes and gives drama to the lashes.
I either go bold if I am feeling it that day or I will go neutral especially if I know I will need to reapply through out the day depending on my schedule that day. Another helpful trick is using lip liner all over the lips instead of lipstick! Replacing it with a liner it lasts longer and you have more precision!

Probably the most time consuming step you currently have in your beauty routine, but it doesn't have to be.. Underlining the bottom of the brow and the arch with a pencil, following it with a spooly and quick brush of brow powder should give you the definition you need!
