Beauty Tuesday: November Favorites

It's been a while since I've done a monthly favorites round up, so I figured this post is long overdue. Lately as  sleep has become more of a priority in my life, I've begun to focus on mastering a five minute look. I swear it's quite the change from my working days were I routinely spent 20 minutes on just my eyes every morning. Ha. Now I feel good if I use more than 2 eye shadow shades.

So let me take you through my quick routine. I wash my face, then moisturize. While I'm waiting on my lotion to dry I go ahead with an eye shadow primer, then a light all over color, maybe blend a slightly darker color in the crease. I'm loving both the coastal scents natural palette and even the bronzer from the Naked Flushed palette. If I'm feeling really good I may even add an eyeliner. Ha! Then a quick swipe of the benefit they're real mascara (seriously the best mascara ever!) and I'm done with eyes.

Next up, blend the Supergoop CC cream all over. Great coverage, I don't even need a concealer! Finish with a setting powder, a little blush from my Naked Flushed palette. Done.

Then it's coffee time and apply the revlon just bitten kissable balm stain on my walk to campus.

Easy. What are your five minute face tips?

They're Real! is my favorite mascara ever! I put it in my October favorites and said it was up there with Diorshow, but the more I've been wearing it the more I'm thinking it knocks even that out of the water!

I perfected my five minute makeup look in law school too! Actually by 3L year I think it was down to more like 3 minutes. And during finals it was 0 minutes. But the usual consisted of Maybelline BB Cream on the face, Nars taj majal blush on the cheeks, ELF bronzer, a swipe of Buck from the Naked palette in my crease and whatever eyeliner I saw first.
