10 Minute Beauty Routine

I am a shopaholic, makeup loving, emoji using kinda girl. I am also kinda snobby when it comes to specific brands and really do believe you “get what you pay for” as far as makeup goes. You can see me full-face ready on date nights and for special events, but other then that, I don’t wake up early enough. Most days [and most blog post] I wear the bare minimum, enough too not look like a zombie.

I love the Almay Smart Shade foundation because it’s light on my skin and has an SPF of 20. I like to mix it with my moisturizer and use the stippling brush to apply it to my face. The stippling technique is a must learn [YouTube it]! It makes everything look airbrushed and #flawless.


You’ve already heard about my MAC obsession in my last beauty post, but I like to change up my blush based on what I’m wearing. I also apply the blush differently based on color. I like to apply the darker color [at the top] under my cheekbones and the pinks on the apple of my cheeks.

I told my best friend Courtney months ago that I wanted a choker because I could just feel their comeback and look what I’ve been seeing all over the place:

Definitely try out these easy products and let me know what you think.

*And if you’re wondering if I really own an orange dresser, the answer is yes. The story behind the orange dresser is worthy of it’s own post, but I will say it was a labor of love.*
