5 Minute Summer Makeup| No Foundation

Hello!  Today I am sharing my 5 minute makeup routine that I like to do day to day.  This makeup is good because it’s not heavy, and it’s good for going outside to play, or to the pool.  It’s basically a no-makeup makeup kind of look.

Only 6 products.


I like to start off with concealer.

  I have undereye circles that need covering, so I use the Sephora Collection Bright Future Concealer in Meringue and just lightly dab it on my circles with my finger.  This concealer has a pinky tone to it, so a it subtly brightens as well.

Next, the cheek products.

I like to use a matte bronzer, so I apply my Benefit Hoola all over the perimeter of my face, concentrating it in the hollows of my cheekbones and around my jawline.  This gives my skin some dimension and warmth so I don’t look so pale and one color.  I also like to use a blush with a little bit of sheen to it so I can skip the highlighter.  This blush is Covergirl Tru Blend in Medium Rose.  It is a very pretty natural pink with a pearlescent finish.


I have to fill in my brows, so I take this L’Oréal Brow Stylist pencil in Brunette, and just lightly fill them in with short quick strokes so that they look natural.

Mascara makes such a huge difference on me, so I can’t skip that.    I curled my lashes and then applied a few coats of YSL Faux Cils Babydoll Mascara.  This one really holds the curl and volumizes.  If I’m going to the pool, I’ll use a waterproof mascara.

I top off the look with a shimmery candy pink gloss like NARS Istria, and there we go!  Took 5 minutes, and I don’t have to worry about my makeup sweating off my face.

So quick, so easy, but I still feel put together.  This makeup is the least that I ever do- and I sometimes feel naked without eyeshadow/eyeliner, but sometimes I just can’t be bothered!  It’s so hot already, and there really is no point in sweating off a full face of makeup.

How do you do your summer makeup?
