I love wearing makeup, but most days I don’t want to spend more than 10 minutes putting it on. I made it my mission to figure out an easy every-day wearable makeup look. I went to the nearest makeup stores and preformed multiple product tests to find a light and easy look that wears well. 

Here are the best products I found:

1. The Dermalogica Sheer Tint 

  • This tinted moisturizer is the perfect three-in-one. It not only provides your skin with moisture and sun protection, but it also provides enough coverage to create an even skin tone. I love my freckles and I can still see them perfectly through this! However, it is on the pricey side, but Covergirl does provide a great dupe that doesn’t break the bank! This brand is cruelty free. They claim to be vegan, however some products do use beeswax and honey so take precaution if that is a concern for you. 

2. The It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Anti-Aging Waterproof Concealer 

  • This concealer is perfect for the under-eyes. I do not have bad eye bags; however, my eyes are very blue in that area. This concealer is perfect because it does not dry out my under-eyes. It also gives just enough coverage to make me look awake! This company is cruelty free. However, it is owned by L’Oréal which does test on animals. It also is not vegan.

3. The Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Setting Powder 

  • I love a matte look, especially because I have oily skin. This powder sets my tinted moisturizer nicely without caking it. It also lasts a long time which makes it perfect for the long school days. This is also on the pricier side, so a great dupe is the Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder! Tarte is cruelty free; however, their parent company Kose does still test on animals. Tarte is not 100% vegan but many of its products are. 

4. The Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer 

  • This bronzer is awesome! It comes in three different shades which work well with most skin tones. I know that especially during the winter months I need something that is going to make my skin look warmer. Too Faced is a cruelty free brand; however, their parent company Estee Lauder still tests on animals. Too Faced is not a 100% vegan company but they do have some vegan options. 

5. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush 

  • I love this blush so much. It adds the perfect amount of color to your cheeks. It also has a highlighting element to it, so it sparkles in the sun. The color isn’t too heavy, so it looks natural. Hourglass is a cruelty free brand. It is not 100% vegan but is working its way to become fully vegan. 

6. Tarte Sex Kitten Eyeliner 

  • Sometimes you need a pick me up for your eyes, something to make them look more awake. This has worked so well for me. It doesn’t bleed under my eyes like most do which is so important when you’re wearing it all day. Tarte is cruelty free; however, their parent company Kose does still test on animals. Tarte is not 100% vegan but many of its products are. 

7. Buxom Lash Mascara 

  • I love making my eyelashes look long! It makes your eyes look bigger and more awake. This mascara is my go-to (because it doesn’t clump my lashes together which is annoying)! Buxom is a cruelty free brand. However, their parent company Shiseido does still test on animals. It also is 100% vegan

8. Glossier Boy Brow 

  • I hate doing my eyebrows; to be honest I can never get them right. Using the Glossier Boy Brow make it so easy to tint my brows while also keeping them in place. Glossier is cruelty free but it is not 100% vegan

Whether you use the exact same products, or you have your own versions, minimizing your makeup bag is going to be the key!
