Before I had Zayla I took roughly an hour every morning to get ready, let that sink in an hour. After I had Zay I tried to stick to my routine but soon realized being a new mommy meant less time for me. So instead of throwing in the towel on makeup, I discovered my 15-minute makeup routine.
Let's start with my go-to products.
My fav primer will forever and always be the Fenty Pro Filt'r Primer. This primer is heaven-sent, (a lot of people actually don't like it, but I absolutely love it). I squeeze about a pea-size amount onto my fingertips and rub it in all over my face. This primer smoothes out my skin and gives me a radiant glow.
Next, I use my favourite foundation, Nars Natural Radiant Longwear. This foundation blurs all acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and of course eye bags :))) (of course concealer under the eyes is still needed). I use my wet beauty blender to buff in my foundation (I've used a brush before but find the beauty blender leaves a natural glow).
Step 3, concealer. without concealer and fake tan, I promise you I'd look like a walking corpse. my go-to concealer is Maybelline Instant Age Rewind. This concealer hides my dark circles like no other!
Almost done! Next, I add setting powder, just to prevent lines under my eyes and a greasy face LOL. My go-to setting powder? Stay Matte by Rimmel. This setting powder keeps my face matte all day and doesn't get caky.
Then, I like to add a little bronzer to my cheekbones, forehead, and chin. I do this using my all-time favourite bronzer; Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer. Every girl knows this bronzer, it's a holy grail item I live by!
Now, I like to add a little bit of highlighter to the tops of my cheekbones, under my eyebrow, cupids bow, and the tip of my nose. Now to be honest I have so many highlighters I use (as I'm sure most girls do, it's hard to pick a favourite okay!) but one I find myself always reaching for is Butter Highlighter by Physicians Formula . This highlighter is so creamy and applies so evenly, every time I put it on I'm in love.
Last but not least, setting spray. My go-to setting spray is Glowsetter by Glam Glow. Now I'm going to be honest, I got this as a gift and thought nothing of it, just another setting spray to add to my collection. But oh my lord this setting spray deserves a 10/10, this makes my finished look have a natural glow, I've honestly been through 2 bottles already!
As for mascara I typically always have lash extensions (another lifesaver since I've had Zay), so I can't think of any mascaras I'd recommend.
These are the products I use to feel and look my best in 15 minutes! I promise the more you do it the faster you'll get!
