Every morning I face the same problem. I wake up with zero energy, look in the mirror, and realize that I look more like a zombie than a human. Then I start trying to convince myself that I don’t really need to wash my face or brush my hair. Makeup, who needs it? After several minutes of complaining about the bright daylight and a little bit of caffeine, I finally wake up and realize that I do need to get dressed, and I’m already running late for something. If you’re not a morning person either, I’m here to help you out! Today I’m sharing my everyday makeup routine that takes about ten minutes from start to finish. It’s a foolproof routine filled with my favorite products from Neutrogena, and it’s guaranteed to help you achieve a radiant complexion with minimal effort!
For this look, you’ll need facial wipes, moisturizer, liquid foundation, setting powder, bronzer, blush, neutral eyeshadows, mascara, and lipgloss!
Prep Your Face
At night, I have the time and energy to thoroughly cleanse, exfoliate, tone, and moisturize my skin. I basically layer on every magical skincare potion I own and pray for the best. Unfortunately, that’s just not going to happen in the morning. Each morning, I wipe away excess dirt and oil from my face with the Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. Unlike other wipes, they’re made of naturally-derived fibers from sustainably-managed forests. The cleansing liquid on the wipes gently cleans my skin and doesn’t irritate my eyes. The final step in my morning skincare routine is to add a bit of extra moisture with the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel. Ladies, you need this moisturizer. It’s main active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, and your skin will drink it up in seconds. This moisturizer is unlike anything I’ve ever tried before. It absorbs into your skin instantly and leaves behind a smooth, supple, and nearly matte finish. It’s the ideal primer for your makeup routine because there is absolutely no greasy residue left behind!
Create A Blank Canvas
After prepping your skin, it’s time to even out your skin tone. I buff the Neutrogena Healthy Skin foundation in the shade Nude into my skin with a foundation brush and conceal under-eye circles with a concealer that’s two shades lighter than my natural skin tone. After blending out both products, I press the Neutrogena Shine Control powder into my T-Zone to control excess shine. The key is to look glowy- NOT oily.
Add Color to Your Complexion
Now that we’ve eliminated redness and concealed blemishes, it’s time to add a little bit of dimension back into the face! Use a large and fluffy brush to apply bronzer to your cheeks, forehead, jawline, and around the sides of your face. Use a smaller brush to apply a bright pink blush to the apples of your cheeks.
Brighten And Define Your Eyes
Applying eyeshadow is my favorite part of my makeup routine. I use theNourishing Long Wear Eye Shadow + Built in Primer in the shade Cocoa Mauve to create a neutral eye that’s absolutely beautiful.
Step 1: Apply the lightest shade in the palette to your browbone with a flat brush.
Step 2: Use a flat brush to apply the pale taupe color across your entire lid.
Step 3: Blend the darker taupe shade into your crease with a fluffy brush.
Step 4: Use the foam applicator that comes with the palette to apply the darkest shade to the outer corner of your eye.
Step 5: Use a fluffy brush to blend the edges of your eye look!
Add The Finishing Touches
To finish the look, simply apply 2-3 coats of your favorite mascara and lipgloss. I love using the Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara in Carbon Black and bright pink lipgloss!
I love that while this skincare and makeup routine only takes 10 minutes to complete, it creates a huge change in my appearance!
