| Look | Lazy Luxe 10 Product Makeup Look

Many of you may not know this but I work a full-time job on top of blogging. So I often try to make time in the mornings to get ready but don't often have the time for a complex routine before my work day starts. I often wake up at 5:30 am or 6:00 am and try to snap a couple quick pictures for IG or the blog but this involves lighting setup and product staging, which to honest, takes way more time than you'd think! By the time I'm done with my "quick" photo shoot, I'm rushing to get ready. I developed this look with some new products that have come out for spring and summer 2018. This look is quick to do and it makes you look very fresh and healthy, even when you're not feeling your best. For example, I had a  terrible respiratory infection last month and I put this makeup on, you would have never thought I was sick! 

The key to the look is all about the base and ensuring it is light, sheer, and fresh looking. That of course starts with skincare. I have been using CeraVe's Renewing Skin range, which I love! Read all about this incredible and affordable skincare range here. For day time, I use about two pumps of the Skin Renewing Day Cream with SPF30 all over my face and neck. It is thick and hydrating cream but it leaves your skin without any greasy texture or residue. It perfectly primes my face for the next step!

I then go in with my Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Face Filter, which is the linchpin of this entire look. This product transforms my skin from dry, dull, and lifeless to fresh, flawless, and ethereal in seconds! You need to read my review here on this product to truly understand the caliber of this miraculous product! I take the wand and swipe a healthy amount of product all over my skin then I take a dense brush and stipple the product into my skin. The stippling application method helps increase the coverage and create an even layer all over my skin. I will will apply more in areas as needed, this product builds on top of itself very nicely. I even a apply some under my eyes to brighten my darkness.

The next step is spot concealing and brightening. I take my Colorescience Total Eye 3-in-1 Renewal Therapy SPF 35 and place that under my eyes to brighten, correct, and protect my under eye area. The peach shade is a beautiful corrector and the texture is super light weight. It's been an essential in  my routine since I received it, you can read all my thoughts on this product here. I also take my YSL Touche Eclat and to lightly cover the redness around my nose and any other sports that need a bit more coverage. The Touche Eclat has light texture and luminous finish that doesn't take away from the overall look. I use a beauty sponge from Sephora to blend and push the product into the skin to prevent any creasing and maintain a flawless finish.

At this point I'm looking pretty luminous, maybe a bit too luminous in certain areas, so I lightly spot powder those areas with my Givenchy Prisme Loose Powder. This powder is pretty incredible in that it sets the makeup without taking away from the beautiful glow and texture of the product underneath. It also blurs and corrects any imperfections and texture! I use a very small brush, or in some cases a large blending brush to powder under the eyes, around the nose, and a bit on the forehead and chin.

To add some color to my skin, I take my Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Glow Stick in Sunstruck and swipe a bit of the blush on top cheeks and a bit of the illuminator to my cheekbones, blending with my fingers. This product adds a lot of freshness and vitality back into my skin. Plus the stick packaging makes it so easy to apply and touch up. You can check out my full review here.

For my eyes, I keep it simple with a bit of the Armani Smokey Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadow in Camel Smoke for a natural matte brown lid color. I dot a bit onto my lid and use a synthetic brush to blend out the color all over. It's such a quick way to get a really polished look. Check out my review on these Eye Tints here. I will sometimes add a winged liner with my Ardency Inn Punker Liner for some edge but if I don't have time, I'll finish off my eyes with a good coat of the Colorescience Mascara.

My final important touches are brows and lips! I take my Burberry Effortless Brow Definer and brush my brows into place and fill in where necessary, brushing through often to get a really natural looking brow. Finally, I swipe on a quick coat of the Louboutin Loubibelle Beauty Lip Oil in Louboutin Rouge. This product gives me a very fresh and natural tint of color to my lips and helps disguise any dryness but unfortunately doesn't treat any dryness. You read all about this product in my review here.

While this is kind of a long blog post, this actually takes me only a couple minutes to do in the morning if I have all my products laid out in front of me. It's a great quick and effortless way to get a very polished and fresh look, especially in the morning when you're not feeling as perky. It imparts a healthy glow and a simple routine for a lazy day or a day when you just don't have the time for a more complex look.

On my lazy days, I brush through my hair quickly and throw it up in a high pony tail. I'm good to go, looking more polished than I did when I first work up!
