VIDEO: Under 5 Minute Makeup Routine

Here’s a weird fact: I really only started wearing makeup toward the end of college.  Ok, with the exception that I did, occasionally  wear the super classy white eyeliner on my eyelids during high school.  Oh yeah, I did that.  So sure…now that I actually DO have to wear makeup, my routine is usually under five minutes…mostly because I’m lazy and always running late.  In this video, I show you my not-so-secret under five minute routine (FOUR minutes, to be exact!) that will give you the bare minimum as far as coverage, and not looking like a beast.

Round Up: Tinted Moisturizers

So I’ve never really liked using full-fledged foundation. I think it’s because my skin is very fair with freckles and whenever I’ve tried using a thicker foundation, it always end up looking fake and totally covers my freckles, which I’ve really grown to love. Anyhow, there are three tinted moisturizers that I’ve recently tried and am completely obsessed with. Tinted moisturizers are great for people like myself who need a little coverage to even out skin tone but who prefer a more natural look. Check out my faves below.

Clinique even better makeup SPF 15: Not quite a tinted moisturizer but might as well be with the results. This oil-free product improves the clarity of skin, helps improve clarity and diminish age spots in just 4 to 6 weeks time.

Prescriptives All Skins Mineral Makeup SPF 10: Brand new this month,

this longwearing liquid mineral makeup is infused with vitamins, minerals and the exclusive R.E.C. (Radiance Emitting Crystals –a unique complex of Amethyst, Rose Quartz and Calcite) to give skin extra luminosity.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15: This light-weight tinted moisturizer hydrates skin and imparts a natural-looking hint of color, oompa loompas need not apply. The SPF 15 is an added bonus for some superior sun protection.
