The Super Simple 2 Minute Make-Up Routine | by Ashlee Proffitt

Make-up is fun. Or at least I think so anyway. However, I don’t always (ahem, never) have more than a few minutes to get ready in the morning. Typically that is because I have packed my mornings with too many things… I digress.

I have mastered my make-up routine in such a way that I can currently be finished in about 2 minutes. If you are like me and like make-up (this is not a “you should wear make-up all the time” type of blog, you are beautiful with or without make-up!) but want to keep the process to a short amount of time, I have listed my tips as well as my exact make-up routine below.

TIPS
  • Simplify. If you are busy or in a hurry or just not doing your make-up because you feel like it’s too complicated. Simplify your routine.
  • Clean Out. Throw out anything that is expired, broken or you haven’t used within the last month.
  • Organize. Keep your makeup tools, brushes & sponges separate from your actual make-up; it makes application go so much quicker when you aren’t hunting for your eyelash curler or blush brush.

PHASE 1: FACE
  1. Apply Foundation (Favorite | Inexpensive Option I use every day)
  2. Apply Translucent Powder
  3. Apply Blush (my new favorite!!)
PHASE 2: EYES
  1. Curl Eyelashes
  2. Apply Eyeliner
  3. Apply Eye Shadow (A new favorite! I’m obsessed! Don’t underestimate the value of a good eye shadow!)
  4. Apply Mascara  (My favorite mascara for years. I have fine lashes and the tiny little wand helps to find them all, making my eyelashes look super full and defined.)
  5. Fill in Brows (This is a recent addition to my make-up routine and really finishes off my eyes. Worth the extra 20 seconds for sure.)
PHASE 3: LIP
  1. Apply Lipstick (I love lipstick. It makes me feel fancy and beautiful even if I’m just bopping around the house. It really completes your look, even if it’s a nude or natural toned color. I have been using a clinique lipstick palette for a probably gross amount of time. But I still love it and I think it’s still sanitary. However, it is no longer for sell. This Chanel palette is almost identical to what I use on a daily basis. I love the versatility and ease of application!)
  2. Or Gloss (A new favorite! It’s not sticky and stays shiny for good amount of time!)
BRUSHES
