Easy Morning Makeup

So I've been getting a lot of questions lately about an easy morning makeup routine. For days where I should put a face on but really don't feel like going through the whole she-bang, this is my go-to...5 items and I'm out the door! 

Step 1: Starting with a clean, moisturized face, apply a tinted moisturizer or BB cream (not a fan) with your fingers to even out discoloration. Stila has an awesome oil-free tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 that comes in 10 shades ranging from fair to deep. If spending $34 for a tinted moisturizer isn't in the cards for you, you could always make your own by mixing tiny amounts of whatever moisturizer and foundation you have on hand.

Step 2: Well groomed brows frame your eyes, making you look awake so make sure you fill in sparse areas with a brow pencil or powder (eyeshadow that match your brows works great too!). If you have unruly brows, tame them with a brow gel or clear mascara.

Step 3: Wake up your eyes with 2 coats of black mascara to your top lashes.

Step 4: Add glow with some blush! Nars' Orgasm is universally flattering but at $28, might not be accessible to everyone. A great alternative is Hot Mama by theBalm, $19.

Step 5: Finish with your favorite lip gloss aaannnddd you're done!!
