Get Your Face on in Under 5 Minutes
The morning routine can get so, well…routine. Choosing the clothes, fixing the hair, applying the makeup. You are barely left with enough time to grab a cup of coffee before heading out the door, let alone incorporate anything healthy into the mix.
Feel your daily makeup routine is taking too much time? Been thinking of switching to natural products but don’t know where to start?
What if you learned you could get your face on in less than five precious minutes with makeup made from healthy ingredients? It’s true! Let’s take a look at the products and techniques to get you there.
3 Steps to the 3 Minute Face
Following are steps to help you get started with a natural makeup look all your own. And in only three simple steps. Who doesn’t have time for that? First up, choosing your new makeup items. All of the following products are made with natural and organic ingredients, and free from toxins.
1. Conceal and Cover:
Are you caught in the primer/foundation/powder time suck? I’d like to introduce you to a product that is going to change your life. It’s called tinted moisturizer and it will give you back some of your morning. Suntegrity "5 IN 1" is tinted moisturizer with mineral sunscreen, for added anti-aging benefits, and comes in four natural shades. Not sure a tinted moisturizer will provide enough coverage? Blend your own. Add desired amount of foundation to your daily moisturizer, blend lightly between fingertips and apply. Not only is this method fast, but it’s more hydrating and looks super natural. Those with dry skin may apply over moisturizer.
2. Eyes + Brows:
If it takes you forever to apply mascara, which it does most of us, a good smudgy liner look will compensate for skipping lashes. Benecos Natural Eyeliner goes on smooth and creamy, but stays in place. As for brows, this is the easiest, quickest way to plump those babies up. Brush brows straight up, add a soft line of Benecos Eyebrow-Designer to the bottom edge of your brows, blend slightly with a cotton swab, brush brows into place. So simple yet it adds so much to your look.
3. Lips + Cheeks:
No makeup look is complete without a bit of color. A great way to keep your look cohesive without multiple products is with a handy little two-in-one. Tata Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek Tints are perfect for the job, providing natural color that suits all skin tones. Plus, the cream formula keeps skin looking dewy and fresh. Stow in your bag for primping on the fly.
There you are. Three and done. You’ll even have time to whip up that green juice or avocado toast. A faster, healthier start to your day.
