Morning Makeup

In the summer heat I feel extremely unmotivated to put on a full face of makeup in the morning. Not only because it's too hot for heavy foundation, but also it takes a lot of time to apply, primer, moisturizer, foundation, coverup, powder, blush, etc, etc, etc.  But, girl cannot pull off the no makeup look, especially on the occasional bad skin days.  Two products that I find do the trick for being both lightweight and quick while doing the job are:

Dr. Jart Beauty Balm available here.

Stainiac Lip and Face gel available here.



Dr. Jart's beauty balm is my triple threat serving as foundation, SPF, and coverup.  Also, it doesn't dry out my skin so I need less moisturizer. With Stainiac I dot a bit on the apples of my cheeks and blot, then swipe it on my lips. A little clear mascara and the job is done.  And by done, I mean my face doesn't feel weighed down with product, my problem areas are concealed, and my morning makeup routine is less than five minutes.  Streamlined and effective, you can't argue with that.  Both of these products are available at Birchbox, check out my post back from March here to learn more.
