10 Minute No-Makeup Makeup Look

While I appreciate the effort some people put into looking beautifully glam every morning, I am not one of those people. I prefer to maximize my sleep time as much as possible, which has led me to develop the quickest, most efficient makeup routine ever. This is a natural, light coverage, low effort look for the laziest of college students, leaving you with a rosy, fresh-faced appearance.

 
 
 
  1. 1. Prep                

    My first step before I do my makeup is to use the Milk Makeup Cooling Water underneath my eyes. This helps depuff my under-eye bags caused from not getting enough hours of sleep. 

     

  2. 2. Lips              

    I apply the Glossier Birthday Balm Dotcom fairly generously all over my lips to let it soak in while I do the rest of my makeup. It works as a great moisturizer and adds a little sparkle too.

     

  3. 3. Eyebrows            

    I use the NYX Micro Brow Pencil in brunette to fill in my eyebrows almost every day. Everyone does their brows differently, so learn what works best for you! I start by using the spoolie to brush my hairs upward, and follow by using the pencil to define the bottom and the tail of my brow. Then, I lightly fill in the front. Next, I use the Maybelline Brow Precise Fiber Volumizer Brow Gel in deep brown to make my brows look a little fluffier and messier. When I’m ultra lazy or late to class, I skip the pencil and go straight to the gel!

     

  4. 4. Skin        

    Next is concealer. I apply the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind in ivory with a small brush to clean up the bottom of my brows and the dark circles under my eyes. I also apply a bit around my nose to cover up blackheads and redness. Then, I blend it all in with a damp Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. I skip foundation because it's too heavy for my taste, and I don't feel like it's necessary for my skin.

     

  5. 5. Cheeks        

    My favorite part is always blush. I apply the Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek in perk all over my cheeks and my nose. When I say all over, I mean all over. I blend this in mostly with my fingers, but I occasionally use the same sponge as I mentioned before.

     

That's it! Short and sweet. This look covers all of my bases and is super easy to do right before I leave. Of course, you can alter this routine to your own preferences, and make it as extra or as minimal as you want. Makeup should always be fun and should never make you feel worse about your natural self. No matter how much or how little you apply, you're killin' it.
