I’ve taken you guys through my 10-minute makeup routine for LOTW, but there are times when I don’t even have 10 minutes because I’ve done too much dilly-dallying. When I have even less time to get ready, I look for products that are multitaskers because they save me a lot of time.
There have been a couple I’ve been reaching for a lot the last month or two because they really cut down on the amount of time I spend getting ready, and I bet they could save you some time, too.
I wrote about this being travel-friendly, but this foundation stick has really been my go-to all throughout the summer.
The coverage is on the lighter end of medium, but I can build it up enough to use it as both my foundation and my concealer. It also blends very well with my fingers, so I can save myself some time there as well.
I pretty much carry this with me everywhere because it’s great for touch-ups. In addition to that, I love that it’s a three-in-one situation, and I can use it for some light contouring, highlighting, and for a pop of color on the cheeks.
When I only have five minutes or so to get ready, I’ll also use this palette for my eyes and lips. The highlighter shade is perfect all over the lid, and I use the contour shade in the outer third of my crease for some subtle definition.
This applies easily with fingers so it shaves a little time there, too. The highlighter and contour stay on well through the day, but I do have to touch up the blush a bit in the area closest to my nose since I get a little extra oil there.
I usually finish my look off with brow gel, mascara, and setting powder, and then I'm out the door in a flash.
