A beauty blogger is somebody to whom “a 5 minute makeup routine” doesn’t exist. I am no exception. No matter how hard I try to do a quick makeup look, limit myself to two eyeshadows at the most, no contouring or highlighting, it just never goes that way. 10 minutes later I find myself color correcting and blending 4 different eyeshadows.
Until recently, time spent on doing my makeup wasn’t really an issue (well, besides my boyfriend teasing me on taking 2 hours to get ready) because I worked from home. A few weeks ago though, I started a new job where I actually need to leave the house and be around people. And there are days when I have to be out the door by 7 am. That being said, I DO need to streamline my beauty regimen. And that’s where I need your help.
I honestly don’t have a whole lot of products that are multitaskers so I need some recommendations. In particular, I am looking to find some good eyeshadow sticks that I can quickly smudge over my eyelids, blend out and be done, yet still look put together. I have only tried Mac Prolongwear Waterproof Colour Sticks from Mac Cosmetics so far. What other brands would you recommend? What are your favorite shades? And what products in general do use when you have a limited time to get ready? What are your time saving beauty secrets? Please, share those with me!
