My 10 Minute Beauty Routine

When it comes to makeup, I definitely prefer a more laid back, no fuss approach. Especially when it comes to the hot + humid Atlanta summers. Unless I’m getting ready for date night or a more dressed-up affair, I like to keep my routine to a minimum. Check out my quick and easy 10 minute makeup routine below featuring a few of my favorite high + low goodies! 


Step 1: Start with a clean face and apply a lightweight primer. I LOVE the POREfessional Face Primer from Benefit Cosmetics. 

Step 2: Apply a small amount (less than a dime size) of NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint. I don’t typically where a true foundation so I love that this skin tint is lightweight but still gives you that smooth, matte finish.  

Step 3: Use a few swipes of a lighter, highlighting concealer under the eyes and along the bridge of your nose. This is my dual concealer/highlighting process – I like to keep it simple so I use the NARS Radiant Concealer in a shade just a tad lighter than my usual concealer. 

Step 4: Swipe on a few layers of a golden bronzer to the cheekbones and around the outer line of your forehead and jawline. 

Step 5: Add a few dabs of a peachy illuminator to the apples of your cheeks. 

Step 6: Take care of the eyes! A few swipes of a brown mascara then line you top lash line with a liquid liner. Finish off the look with a few coats of mascara

Step 7: For an extra touch, try a light pink lipstick or your favorite sheer chapstick. 

And you’re done!
