Let’s be real. An extensive, full-glam, 100-Step makeup routine is not for every day. And it’s definitely not for everyone. Sometimes we get so caught up with trying to do full glam looks that we forget how to simplify and achieve amazing results with a quicker routine using fewer products.
Here's my guide on how to achieve that quick, easy-breezy everyday look using my top 5 favorite products from Covergirl!
Step 1: Prep & Prime
Skin Prep is very important especially when going for a more natural everyday look. That’s why I love the Covergirl Pore-Minimizing TruBlend Base Business Skin Primer.
This primer perfects the skin by minimizing pores, creating the perfect canvas base for any makeup product. It glides on easy and has a weightless feel. It feels like a skin care product and can be worn with or without makeup.
Step 2: Brows
Another non-negotiable when it comes to perfecting a quick everyday routine is having a solid brow routine in place. Adding some fill and definition to the brows help shape the face and this step should not be skipped. When it comes to brow products for everyday use, Covergirl has some amazing ones, I love the Covergirl Easy Breezy Brow Definer because it’s extremely easy to use and gets the job done in a minute.
Step 3: Eyes
Adding definition to the eye really wakes up the face. For easy everyday looks, skip the winged eyeliner addiction and opt for a simple liner in your waterline. I love the Covergirl Perfect Point Plus Eye Pencil in black onyx. For a defined look, draw a precise line using the pencil tip. However, for a smoky look, you can smudge out the liner using the plush blender tip.
Step 4: Lashes
A good Mascara is all you need to bring your lashes back to life and the Covergirl Lash Blast Clean Mascara adds the perfect volume and length to your lashes. I particularly love this mascara because it’s long lasting and provides a clump-proof and mess-free application that gives my lashes 10X volume. This is perfect for my quick everyday routine.
Step 5: Coverage
Lastly, if you need to add some light coverage to the skin, opt for a quick foundation application using the Covergirl TruBlend Matte Made foundation. This foundation is comfortable on the skin, oil controlling and gives a beautiful natural finish. On my quick makeup days, I love to use it in the shade D50 for spot coverage instead of applying it all over.
Finally, add some lip gloss or lipstick of choice, and just like that, you have a quick Easy-Breezy makeup routine perfect for every day!
