10 Minute Affordable Makeup Routine

Friday, February 12, 2016



If you're anything like me, you don't have a ton of time to get ready in the mornings. It seems like times just escapes me and I can't get everything accomplished before I have to dash out the door for work. It's taken some time, but I've finally come up with an easy ten minute makeup routine that takes little effort and the best part is - it's affordable



First, I put on my moisturizer. One bottle of this stuff lasts me right at 6 months.

Next, I put on my foundation and I just use my fingers to apply it. I've had my current bottle for right at a year and it's nowhere near empty yet!

I then put on my eye shadow using my favorite brushes. (Shhhh - I also use these brushes and my eyes hadow to fill in my eyebrows!)
