Fresh faced makeup

This is a 5-minute makeup routine that helps you look more awake and polished, so it's great for school, lazy days or brunch with friends. Enjoy!


1. Apply a moisturizer with SPF on your clean face. Pin your hair back so it's out of the way.


2. Use a light undereye concealer around your eye area (don't forget your brow bone) and blend well using your fingers.


3. Mix a liquid highlighter with some tinted moisturizer. Apply where you need coverage and blend well. If you have any blemishes you can cover those spots with a concealer.


4. If you get oily throughout the day like me, lightly dust some face powder on your T-zone, nose and chin with a brush. We are going for a dewy look so try not to use too much powder.


5. Apply bronzer in areas where the sun hits: forehead, cheekbones, nose, chin and a little bit on your neck so everything looks uniform.


6. Define your eyebrows if you need to using a pencil or eyeshadow that is slightly lighter than your hair color.


7. I like to keep everything in place using an eyebrow gel.


8. Use a dark brown eyeliner pencil to line your upper lash line. Smudge with a Q-tip or your finger so it looks soft and natural.


9. Curl your lashes and apply mascara.


10. Apply your favorite cream blush or cheek stain and blend well.
