Everyday Makeup Routine | Beauty

Hey all! I am a college student and though you would think that allows you to wear all the makeup in the world, people in Barbados are still quite shy about it. (funny enough, because when you go to work it's even harder to wear bright colours and such.)

Anyway I'm not the kind of person to put on loads of makeup or bright colours on my face for day-to-day wear, but I do enjoy doing my makeup for school to look put together and sometimes with a pop of colour on my lips. Still on the look out for a great coloured mascara so I can sport that more often too. I like to keep it simple also because I don't like to waste time going into the school bathrooms to fix or reapply anything. Just too much hassle, and I usually don't have more makeup than a lip product in my bag at any given point. I'm just that lazy haha!

Anyway, here's what I typically do in the morning, before I rush off to classes.

  1.  Moisturise my lips using my Maybelline Baby Lips
  2. Add moisture to the rest of my face with coconut oil. Just a drop will do.
  3. Cover my spots and unevenness with Garnier BB Cream. If I don't feel like using BB cream I'll just stick to my Neutrogena Ultra Sheer sunscreen (SPF45).
  4. Make sure to blend the BB cream well into my skin so it doesn't look splotchy. 
  5. Here's how the finish of the BB cream looks. 
  6. Sometimes the BB creams a bit too dewy, or I might have put on too much product, so I blot with a tissue. It's an easy way of not looking cakey.  
  7. Fix my eyebrows, and occasionally I put a bit of concealer underneath the brow to clean it up. 
  8. Apply blush on my cheek bones.
  9. Apply bronzer to slightly contour and add life back to my forehead. I put a bit in the hollows of my cheek bones too. 
  10. Apply generous coats of mascara.
  11. Sometimes I highlight my inner corners with Crisp from my Smashbox eyeshadow trio.
  12. Finally apply some lip gloss, or lipstick if I'm feeling up to it that day. 

This can take me about 10- 15 minutes. Even less if I really rush it along but, I really don't make too much of a fuss about it. Some days just sunscreen and mascara is all I'm wearing! How do you typicall get ready on mornings for school or work?
