The 15 Minute Face

I’ve never been a person to dedicate much time to my face in terms of daily application of makeup.  I have a HUGE makeup bag filled with items, but I’m always finding the same products & colors making its way on my skin.  I figured, some things you might have heard of, and some maybe you haven’t.  So enjoy this post and I’ve also linked to the products through Ultafor you to purchase.  I am using affiliate links, which means if you do find anything to purchase, I will receive a small commission from them for the referral.

This is me on a daily basis. Of course, I’m covering my eyes but as you can tell, minimal makeup.  Years ago I received the Urban Decay Naked Palette and I’ve since had to purchase the colors I use a lot.

Each morning, after I apply the E.L.F primer,  I use the Virgin shadow from Urban Decay on my lid close to the lashes and on my browbone for some highlighting.  Then I apply Naked to my lids and crease.  That’s it.  I apply some L’Oreal Voluminous mascara to my lashes.

Now for what I use on my skin.  My skincare regimen is basic and starts in the shower.  Every day (since I received it to try out) I wash my face with the Belli Anti-Blemish wash and a few times a week I follow up with the Pre-Treatment scrub.  I’ve noticed a huge improvement and I also purchased their Healthy Glow Facial Hydrator for after the shower.

I flip back and forth between using a BB cream and an actual powder foundation.  The BB cream (Olay Freshworks – not available online with Ulta) has been my favorite. I tried a few brands before and they felt too greasy afterwards, not matter how little I tried applying to my face. The actual powder I use is by Pur Minerals.  Their 4-in-1 pressed compact is amazing.  You can layer several applications to get a heavier coverage, or do a quick sweep for a lighter one.  I love it!

For blush & Bronze I have a few options. But one of my favorites was a duo I got ages ago from Smashbox.  I believe the duo was this Blush Rush color and then also the Softlights for a highlighter.

So there you have it.  What I use on my face, on a daily basis.  Oh and the brushes? I use the real Techniques Brush set
