Today is the third day of Pearls and Polkadots’ “Beautiful Beauty Bloggers: Volume 2” series! I have Elle from Elle Sees guest posting today! Elle shares amazing tips for doing your makeup, hair and style. Her passion for blogging is so admirable, and I am so glad to have her here today to show you a few products!
Hey you! I’m Elle, and I blog at Elle Sees. It’s your one stop spot for all things beauty. I’ve got reviews, DIY beauty products, tips+tricks, and tutorials for hair, makeup, nails, and skin care. Stop by and check it out!
Today I’ve got my foolproof 5-minute makeup routine for y’all! If I’m not testing out beauty products, you can find me in Atlanta at my day job: a nanny! I’m on the go and want quick makeup to keep up with the little ones. The key is to have a bag or box with these essentials—just grab and go and you’ll be ready in no time!
Here are the products and the steps I do, but choose what works for you:
BB or CC Cream – moisturizes, protects, and lightly blur imperfections.
Concealer – necessity for hiding dark circles – I suggest a peachy corrector. Try Bare Minerals, Bobbi Brown, It Cosmetics.
Cream Shadow – look more awake with a satin shadow slightly lighter than your skin tone or try a brown or taupe for those days when you want to look like you put in more effort 😉
Mascara – sometimes just curling the lashes works wonders, but I swear by a coat of mascara on top and bottom lashes.
Cheek/Lip Tint – 2 products in one! I love Stila’s Convertible Color, but try Be a Bombshell’s The One Stick, NARS Multiple, Benetint, Sonia Kashuk.
Lip Crayon – okay, I admit, I will skip the blush if I’m in a hurry, but I’ve gotta have some color on my lips. These require no mirror, no sharpening, and no skill, plus they come in a variety of colors/finishes. Try Revlon, Neutrogena, Jordana
