Super Fast and Easy Makeup routine

Super Fast and Easy Makeup routine

A full face with nine products.

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably already noticed I don’t wear a lot of make-up.

I actually love make-up, and really enjoy sitting in the chair and having someone else do my face. I even own a fair bit, but I don’t spend a lot of time making myself up. Most days I might just put on some sunscreen and a powder to get rid of the shine, but occasionally I’ll throw a bit more on, especially if we’re going out somewhere special.

My husband says one of his favourite things about me is how quickly I can get ready. If we’ve only got a few minutes to get ready, I can always throw something on, do my hair and make-up and be out the door in under 20 minutes.

This week I was having a High Tea with some other Aussie expats in Palm Beach, so I thought I’d make a quick video of the products I use to get that minimalist, natural look that works so well down here in South Florida. If you put too much on, it will all melt in this humidity anyway.

This routine works really well for me when I travel too. I can carry a tiny cosmetic case, and some of these items do double duty. I you like to travel carry on only, and want to spend more time sightseeing and less time in front of the bathroom mirror, then this is a good one for you. I think I actually got most of these items in Duty Free too.

Hope you enjoy.

Here’s all the products I used.

La Mer Sunscreen
La Mer Foundation
Naked Concealer
Benefit Gimme Brow
Guerlain Terracotta I got this in Duty Free, but Sephora might also stock it.
Lancome Definils
Mineral Fusion powder suncreen
Guerlain lipstick

There giving away gifts with purchase too.¬† How cute are these turtle string lights they’re giving away? You’re going to have to be quick though. I remember the last time Lilly did a collaboration. Target had people camping out front from the night before, and their shelves were bare within minutes. I was living in a tiny town in Victoria, TX, which you wouldn’t think would be a hub for Lilly, and even they were empty within a 1/2 hour.
