5 Minute Everyday Makeup Tutorial
I’m so excited to share my five minute everyday makeup routine with you today! Over the years I’ve tried a number of different brands and products. I finally landed on a routine that is quick and easy. I love a flawless, fresh-faced look. I usually go for products that provide a natural feel, but still has good coverage. I filmed a full tutorial on Instagram.
One of the best tips I’ve received is focusing on your skincare routine, so that your makeup simply enhances your natural beauty. I recently recorded a podcast episode with expert, Kalen Ashford, where she talks about the importance of taking care of your skin and how to achieve your skin goals. Listen to the episode here!
Every Day Makeup Tutorial
First I start with my BEAUTYCOUNTER foundation in shade linen. I squeeze a few small pumps directly onto my face and then use my Artis brushes to blend the foundation all over my face. The Artis brushes are an investment, but the cost per use is worth it. I love how smooth it applies the foundation. Next, I add a few dots of concealer under my eyes and use my Beautyblender to gently blend it in. I recommend going a shade or two lighter than your foundation so that you get a bright-eyed look. Finally, grab a large makeup brush and use the BEAUTYCOUNTER setting powder. Gently press this under your eyes and dust all over your face to help ensure your makeup lasts all day!
Now you’re ready to give your face a little color! If you make a fish face, you will apply the Ambient lightening bronzer where your cheeks dip in. I use the shade bronze light. Then apply your highlighter right above your bronzer for a light glow. I use the shade dim light. Finally, finish your face with the Tarte Amazonian Clay blush. I use the shade Paaarty. Apply this on the apples of your cheeks.
Now you’re ready to move onto your brows! I pencil in my eyebrows using the Tom Ford brow sculptor in shade taupe. I recently had my eyebrows microbladded by Brows by Milly. Since then, I have not had to pencil my brows as much as I used to! For more details on microblading, check out this highlight on Instagram!
Next, I apply my eye shadow. I have been using the Tartelette In Bloom eye palette for years and love it. My two favorite shades are Charmer and Rocker. I apply Charmer all over my lid and use Rocker as a contrast in the outer corners of my eyelid. Then I apply Lancome lash primer on both the top and bottom of my lashes. This helps in ensuring your mascara goes on smooth and not clump up. I apply the Tarte Surfer Curl Mascara to my top lashes and Covergirl lash blast volume mascara to my bottom lashes.
For the finishing touch, I outline my lips with the Charlotte Tilbury Pillowtalk liner and fill in the color with Mac Lipstick Cream in the shade peach blossom. I add a little shine with the Tarte Juicy Lip Balm in shade rose. You can also wear the Tarte Juicy Lip Balm on its own and it looks great!

All of the makeup products I use can be found at Sephora, Ulta, Beautycounter and Tarte. I’ve also listed them for you below! I’ll continue to update this post as I try new products.
