My 11 Minute Makeup Routine

Since starting this blog, I've realized that I do actually pride myself on quite a few small, vain, but still relevant things. One of these things is my ability to apply decent (or at least not terrible) makeup in ten minutes. This week, I decided to both test my hurried preparation skills and explain my process. I hope it doesn't disappoint!

I love this mascara because it provides two different looks. I first use the Volume brush on my top lashes. When that dries, I use the Length brush on both the top and bottom lashes. Depending on my mood I curl my top lashes, but that's not entirely necessary in my opinion.

Ta-da! All done! Turns out, I underestimated my abilities; this routine took 11 minutes, not the 10 I'd originally said. Oh well... Close enough, right?

Anyways, here's what the final product looks like! The lip stain takes a bit to set in and even out, but all in all I'm pretty satisfied with how I look. Quick, easy, and not an eyesore: three adjectives I am proud to have applied to me.

Eyebrow kit: e.l.f.
Eyeshadow palette: Clinique
Mascara: Rimmel London
Lip stain: e.l.f.
