Beauty: 5 Minute Makeup Tutorial {Sponsored}

With the Christmas party season around, I find myself applying more makeup, more often.

Today I am sharing my 5 minute makeup tutorial. I am a serious makeup lover, but I’m prone to a little laziness. After about 25 years of makeup wearing my laziness is paying off because when we are in our 40’s we often look better with lighter makeup.

Beauty: 5 Minute Makeup Tutorial

I started with foundation, concealer and a wee little bit of contouring already applied (you can see that tutorial here). I had no choice because I had about 3 hours sleep last night and I look like an extra from Walking Dead. I kind of sound a little like one today too. No joke!

In case you decided to skip this video that I put hours into creating. The products I used, in order, are:

  • Inglot Eyeshadow Palette
  • L’Oreal Super Liner So Couture in black
  • NARS blush in Orgasm
  • Youngblood Eyebrow palette in dark
  • Benefit They’re Real Mascara
  • Carmex Lipgloss in pink

If you are looking for some more great quick makeup tips, I usually find some good ones on Yahoo! Beauty, like this 4 minute makeup.
