My Six Minute Makeup Routine.

My Six Minute Makeup Routine

I have been getting some requests on Instagram for my everyday makeup so I wanted to make a little tutorial! I posted a reel over on Instagram to show the steps but all products and shades are below. This is very quick, for days where I want to look polished without a ton of effort. I recorded myself doing this and it took me six minutes!

My Six Minute Makeup Routine

one //

I like to start out by applying the Dr. Bader x Victoria Beckham primer all over my face. You don’t have to do this (and there are less expensive primers too – this one from RMS is also nice!) I apply this over, right now I’ve been using the Rare Beauty foundation brush to do it.

two //

concealer. I just apply it under my eyes, around my nose, and to my chin. I use Milk Makeup’s Sunshine Concealer in No. 2. I blend with the Artis Oval 4 Brush and then go over it with a Beauty Blender.

three //

Saie Bronzer and Brush. I apply this all over my face for a healthy glow. We don’t contour over here.

four //

I use Rose Inc Brow Gel in shade 2 to fluff up my brows, provide a little hold, and add a slight tint.

five //

I line my waterline with Ilia’s eyeliner (I love all the colors but the brown and grey are my favorites). This is the only eyeliner that works for me – it’s the best!

six //

I apply Bobbi Brown’s Shadow Stick in “golden pink” all over my lid. Blend with the Artis circle brush.

seven //

Apply blush to hairline and apples of cheeks. I love Westman Atelier in “petal.” I blend it with the same brush I use for the primer. The brush is a little wet from that and I think it blends with the blush nicely.

eight //

Mascara. Right now my two favorites are the Ilia one and the Beautycounter one. They yield pretty much the exact same results except I find the BeautyCounter one stays on longer (but is also harder to take off.) This time I used BeautyCounter.

nine //

Apply the Dr. Sturm Glow Drops to temples, brow bone, cupid’s bow, and bridge of nose! Blend with your Beauty Blender.

ten //

Most days I just love a clear gloss. This one is the Haus Laboratories Oil Stain in “neutral.” I love it, it’s really moisturizing but also super shiny!

    Love this!
    Which shade in the bronzer did you use?
    Thank you!

    You look gorgeous, and I am a Beautycounter consultant, so I love that you are using cleaner and safer products. That being said, I have to suggest you try to the Merit mascara ( and the rest of their products). Merit mascara is safer and tubing so it comes of easily and doesn’t smudge at all during the day. I want to like Beautycounter mascara (obvs) but they haven’t done it for me yet. Happy holidays!

      Hi! I like the brush a lot. I’ve tried most of the line and was underwhelmed. But the brush was great!
