Five Product Face + Giveaway!!

Hello all! I hope you're all enjoying your weekend so far! Lately, I've been finding it harder and harder to get out of bed in the morning... which leaves me less time to do my makeup before running out the door. As such, I've got my five product face down to pat. I thought today I'd share what products I've been using with you guys, just in case any of you have found yourself in the same situation (and we're getting to the end of the semester here, so I definitely wouldn't blame you).


1)  L'Oreal Paris Magic Lumi Highlighter in the shade Medium ($12.94)- On days where I'm pressed for time, I don't typically bother with primer or foundation, or really any kind of base at all. I prefer to just slap on a thick layer of this concealer all over my under eye area, and then just blend it in with my fingers. It's super brightening, which helps me to look more awake, and it doubles as a highlighter, so I like to dab a bit on the tops of my cheekbones as well!


2) Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation in the shade Medium-Neutral ($36)- I know I said I don't really bother with foundation, so I feel the need to clarify- while this is considered a "foundation" I don't really use it as one. While you do get more coverage out of this product then you would out of a typical powder (which is precisely why I use it on these rushed mornings) I still don't feel like you get the full coverage you would if you used a liquid foundation. I think instead you get a very light, natural coverage that wears really well throughout the day. It really gives that no makeup finish, which is what I like when I'm going very simple everywhere else on my face. The packaging is also really cool, there's a mesh cover over the product, and you kind of press your brush into the netting to get it onto your brush.


3) Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer in the shade Chocolate ($30)- Okay, I definitely went through all of my favorites posts on my blog and I'm AMAZED that this product hasn't been talked about yet. This is easily one of my favorite products of all time. As you can see, it's EXTREMELY well loved, and has lasted me so long, that the packaging of this product has actually been entirely redone. Anyways, even on days where I'm trying to jump out the door, contouring is still one of the most important aspects of my routine, so I just like to take this product in the hollows of my cheeks, up by my temples, and a bit under my chin. And it smells like chocolate, which of course makes me love it even more :)


4) Loreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara ($4.99)- This is a new addition to my mascara collection, but it's quickly becoming one of my favorites. It really gives you long, fluttery eyelashes. I think if you were going for really large, like, va-va-voom lashes for a night out, this mascara wouldn't really be for you, but for everday wear it's really lovely. I think it's the brush that makes it so good- it's got a super thin, synthetic brush with tiny little bristles all over, which really separate and lengthen each individual lash. 


5)  Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Quad in the shade 140 Sea Shell (discontinued)- This particular quad has been discontinued as far as I can tell, but as far as eyebrow shades, there's an extremely similar one in the Maybelline Nudes palette. Depending on how much time I have, I may or may not do my full brow routine, just because my eyebrows are so important to me (that routine can be found here!) but if I don't have time, then I tend to just fill in my brows with the darkest brown in this palette and then run out the door. 


And that's my makeup routine, sorted! I don't typically put on a certain lip product, I'll just opt for whatever chapstick I've got in whatever purse I'm carrying. I hope you guys enjoyed this post! I'd love to hear what products you reach for when you're pressed for time, be sure to let me know in the comments!!

There are a few days left to enter my giveaway, where I'm giving away the L'Oreal highlighter mentioned in this post, as well as a Maybelline Brow Drama Eyebrow gel and a Naked Basics Palette!! The original post can be found here, but you can also enter below. 

Bye guys! Stay Beautiful!

  8. Yes, I love that L'oreal mascara! It gives such soft volume and really gets to every lash. I actually like the Telescopic Carbon Black (in a black tube) even better. It has a tiny comb-like brush that works wonders!
