Get Ready With Me: Lazy Girl Edition

My younger sister always says to me “Work smarter, not harder Mackenzie.” Of course, her logic applies to simple household tasks such as laundry and homework assignments. However, I apply this philosophy to my nightly makeup and hair routine. So, take a journey with me to lazy girl land and see how I get ready. Although my makeup routine is not intense, I strive to create a natural look. 

 

I begin my routine by washing my face, pretty basic and one of the most crucial steps. After I usually apply some type of BB cream or foundation- yes, I know I am such the makeup guru. Next, I do my eyes. I really have no idea how to apply eye makeup, so I generally just add a swipe of a natural color with a white or silver glimmer. Then, eyebrows and some bronzer! All together this takes me about five to ten minutes. The products I use are the following: 

 

Tarte FOUNDCEALER multi-tasking foundation 

Tarte shape tape concealer 

Urban Decay NAKED 2 palette 

Laura Geller Iconic New York Eyeshadow Collection 

Butter Bronzed 

Better Than Sex Mascara 

 

Next, I tackle my hair. Despite my lack of makeup skills, my hair routine is a little bit more intense. For the longest time, I used a curling wand. But just recently, I switched to a clamp curling iron and it has changed my life. My end goal is beach waves. After curling my hair to perfection, I spray it with a finishing spray to add volume and keep it in place. 

 

Finally, I pick out my outfit. This is probably the hardest step. I am very indecisive and always try on 5 to 10 outfits before finalizing a look. The top five stores I shop at for clothing are the following:

 

Missguided 

Forever21 

Lulu’s 

BooHoo

Hollister 

 

Thanks for getting ready with me! Always remember to do it the lazy way! Xoxo
