5 Minute "No Makeup" Makeup Look

Hello & Happy Wednesday!!

I hope you are having a great week so far! Today I'm sharing a quick 5 minute "no makeup" makeup look that I wear often when time is limited for me. If you have been keeping up with me for some time now, you probably already know I'm very busy...running around after a 17 month old little boy who has too much energy. So most of the time, I'm looking for quick and easy makeup looks that make me feel and look put together. Whether you're a busy mom like me or just a busy woman, this look is for you. You can definitely customize this for your liking by swapping out some products I used for your favorites.

Here are the details.....

My 5 Minute Go-To Makeup Look

Step 1: Take "Sheer Joy" (matte cream) and apply all over lid from lash line to brow bone.
Step 2: Take "Love" (matte pale pink) and apply to the inner corner for a highlight.
Step 3: Take "Soulful" (matte pink) and lightly dust it over the lid area. Keep the color very sheer.
Step 4: Take "Mocha"  (matte tan brown) and apply it softly with a fluffy crease brush to the crease area for a sheer definition. The point of this look is to have some natural looking shading to create depth and dimension to the eye.
Step 5: Take "Java" (matte dark brown) and apply it with a pencil style brush to the upper lash line to again create some depth around the lashes.
Step 6: Take "Transforming Pearl" (shimmery topcoat) and apply it to the brow bone to give a nice natural glow. 

Once your eyeshadow is done, apply your favorite mascara and soft blush. I used Jordana Best Lash Extreme mascara which I got from Walgreen for less than $3 and it's great :) For blush I used MAC "Peaches" which is a matte sheer tone peach color. Just a beautiful blush for summer! I applied the blush where I normally wear blush but also did some soft contouring with the same color. For lips I used Cover Girl jumbo gloss balm in #210 (shimmery golden pink) for an easy no fuss lip. Of course, define your eyebrows to pull the whole look together. My favorite easy product for this step is a tinted brow gel. 

And you're done!!!!

The completed look

The IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Palette Vol.1 is the perfect palette to create these types of looks. It offers a great variety of colors all with a matte finish. These eyeshadows claim to never settle into fine lines and wrinkles which is what this cosmetic line is known for. Two thumbs up for this palette!!

This is all you have to do in order to look refreshed and put together with 5 minutes. I love wearing these looks because it's so natural and beautiful.
