early morning makeup (for a minimalist)

i’ve started student teaching (EEEEEEEEEK), which requires me to commute over an hour at 6 am.  it’s truly not that bad, but it requires me to be very organized the night before and pretty quick in the morning.  after a little experimentation, i’ve got my makeup routine down pat, and i knew you would all want to see it 😉bb early am1.jpgas fall is thankfully making its presence known, i’ve gone back to my layering technique to keep my skin fresh and hydrated.  after using my clinique mineral sunscreen, i’ve been putting generous mix of embryolisse and first aid beauty coconut primer all over my face and neck.  i haven’t been using any base products cause i truly can’t be bothered, so i pop a little glossier stretch concealer in light on any areas that might be a little red or discolored.  sephora bright future concealer in meringue covers up the blemishes that somehow haven’t been too bad.

while letting all that moisture sink into the skin, i curl my lashes with the surratt curlers and apply a light coat of mascara – either pacifica stellar gaze (back to this love!) in supernova (black) or covergirl lash blast volume in black/brown.  then i brush up my brows with a spoolie and pop on a little maybelline clear mascara to keep them in place.

back to the face and here’s where it changes depending on my mood.  after applying a light layer of alima pure pressed powder foundation in macadamia – keeps my skin glowy but not shiny and offers the perfect amount of light coverage, i either go in with blush or bronzer.  for bronzer i’m still loving the hourglass diffused bronze light and for blush i’ve been reaching for the pixi multibalm in baby petal.  add a little rms living luminizer and the face is done!bb early am2.jpgfor lips it’s usually lip balm, but sometimes i’ll do a little bit of the burt’s bees lipstick in nile nude.  it’s the PERFECT neutral nude that lightens the lips up in a healthy, juicy way.  very moisturizing and even a minimalist like me can enjoy it daily.

so that’s that!  if i have an extra second i’ll spritz my face with some rosewater or some sort of hydrosol.  basically my aesthetic here is to be fresh-faced and put together, but simple and clean.  what’s your go-to work makeup routine?
