My 10 Minute Makeup Routine

Hey friends! Can you believe that it's the middle of March? What's even crazier is that we had SNOW on what? I swear NC weather is so bipolar come this time of year.

 I'm coming to you today with my easy make up routine. I hate to admit it but since turning 30 things went down hill with my skin. I used to be able to leave the house without make up and honestly only wore a little bit most days unless I was "going out" with friends or something on the weekend. But into my 30's and 2 kids later that is not the case anymore! My dark circles are out of control and my skin just doesn't look as young as it once did.. ha! So I've been putting on a "full face" most days. But my focus is fast..I don't want to spend a lot of time doing it. So I have compiled my favorite makeup products that I use most every day. I've got a good mix of brands and often like to change things up after several months.

1. Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer (CCTM) - I am loving this Sengence product. It really evens out my skin tone and adds just enough coverage for me for day to day use. I don't really love to use foundation on the reg so this is a great alternative.

2. Shape Tape- This concealer has a cult following and I understand why. Its the best!

3. Becca Soft Light Blurring Powder- I had never used a setting powder until recently and I love it now. This one was recommended by several other bloggers!

4. Hamptons Weekender Contour Palette- This is great for beginning contour. I love the bronzer and the highlighter best!

5.  BlushSense- I love this product, my blush stays put all day. Terra-cotta is my favorite color!

6. Tartelette in Bloom- The best eye shadow palette! So versatile and its mostly neutrals which are my go to.

7. Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara- A great go to mascara

8. Gimmie Brow- This is my favorite brow filler by Benefit but I heard they recently took it off the market, hoping they bring it back soon!

9. LipSense- I love lipSense, I have several colors and different glosses. My go to gloss is sand and praline rose is my favorite neutral color!

So there are my favorites and it literally takes me less than 10 minutes to throw this on. Now I'm going to show you a before and after...the before is quite scary but you will see just how great these products are!

And if you are in the market for any of the lipsense or SenGence products that I linked be sure to look up April (@smoochbyapril) or Emily (xoxobyemily) on IG. These girls will hook you up and are so sweet!

  2. I need to try that concealer. I love my LipSense (Praline Rose and Goddess are my favorites!) but ned to try the sand gloss.

  3. I love tarte concealers! Also, you look fab friend! xo

  4. So pretty! I need to use up my current concealer, but I definitely want to try to shape tape. And I love, love, love Lipsense, too. Ever since I started using it again I question myself on why I ever stopped.

  5. You look great. I have heard so many good things about the shape tape. I am trying to use the rest of my It Cosmetics concealer and then buying the shape tape.

  6. I haven't tried LipSense yet since I'm a notorious Chapstick fiend. Maybe Ill try it one day soon haha

  7. You constantly give me hair envy.

  8. You look fab, girl! I've heard such good things about that CCTM. I want to try that even more than LipSense I just haven't bit the bullet!

  9. Beautiful! I love seeing peoples makeup routines, especially when they are super simple and practical.

  10. Love these type posts! I'm all about trying some new products! Thanks for the recommendations!

  11. I am always SO obsessed with your eyeshadow!!! I need to try that!
