Make Up Made Simple

My grandma was a make up addict. She taught me everything I know about cosmetics. My friend, Nicole (favorite make up artist), filled in the gaps over the past few years. I like to look good. However, I am often very busy, and I don’t have time to do my make up as I would like. Because of that, I have found some things that make it look like I did my make up and take less than five minutes to do.


This look is very simple and takes just a few minutes. You only need BB Cream, eye liner, eye shadow stick, mascara, and a lip color. I use the BB Cream to even out my skin tone. Personally, I like the Elf Cosmetics brand. You could buy a more expensive one, but this one works for me and doesn’t make me break out.

For the eyes, I used the Ulta brand eye crayon in Cocoa Puff. I also used the Elf Cosmetics eye liner/shadow stick in black. I applied the eye liner first and then the eye shadow. I used the blending brush on the eye crayon to blend and give me the smoky eye look. I put on a bit of mascara using the Ulta Voluptuous Mascara. I like what it does to my lashes, and it isn’t all clumpy.

My lips are done in a simple Appleberry lipstick by Mary Kay. That is pretty much it. You can find all the items at Ulta or your local Target. It stayed on pretty well through the whole day, and that is after taking a long walk to the park and chasing little people all day.

Any suggestions or comments? If so, I would love to hear them! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for more ideas!
