glominerals, full coverage beauty for the lazy girl
February 15, 2013 1 Comment
I’m lazy when it comes to makeup– when I can find a shortcut with fantastic results I’m going to run with it.
Sure there are nights when looking this good can take up to an hour to piece together, but on the day-to-day reality, the quicker the better.
Which brings me to my new favorite morning routine, including my two new favorite go-to face products by glominerals.
The problem with face makeup is that it can go from real good to real bad real quick, and in the morning, the last thing you are thinking of before you’ve had your coffee is if your foundation is blended correctly into your neck.
Enter glominerals Pressed Base, a powder foundation that’s coverage is beyond amazing, without having to put much effort in.
I know what y’all are thinking. Powder foundations = cakey mc cake face. And believe me, the last time I used powder straight on my face was when I kept a Cover Girl chalky powdered, green compact in my back pocket in 8th grade.
Chalkiness, however, is NOT the case at all with this powder foundation, especially paired with their awesome primer.
All I do is put a pea sized amount of primer on my finger tips, warm it up real quick, and then smooth it over my face.
And since it’s clear, I don’t even worry if I have it right, just do it and go.
Next, I take a big fluffy face brush, and swirl the Pressed Base, I was the shade Natural Light, all over. You can’t believe how smooth it feels over your face.
Then I take a damp beauty blender, get a little more product, and press it onto my under eye circles and down the tip of my nose to brighten up that whole area.
Where I used to have to use a primer, foundation, concealer, loose powder under the eyes, then pressed powder over the face, I’m now down to three simple steps and only two products, and my skin looks flawless.
Then, all I do before sweeping mascara on, is contour and bring some liveliness back to my face with this amazing bronzer that looks so natural and chic.
Suck in your cheeks like a fishy-kissy face, and bring the bronzer up from the most sucken in place on your face parallel to your lips, all the way up to where your ear meets your face. Do this a couple times, blending slightly upward so there are no harsh lines. NEVER blend down– you will look like you have a glowing beard.
Then I take whatever is left on my brush, and put the bronzer on the apples of my cheeks, a little on my nose and then a sweep on my forehead which gives me a super natural glow.
Then mascara, some lipgloss and I am out the door.
Sure it’s nice to look like a Kardashian when you are going out, but some days, you only have time to make yourself look like you have a glow– for all other days, I use 1,000 products, but every single day, I take the flawless lazy girl’s approach with these perfect glominerals.
