I may be someone who never leaves the house without makeup but I am also someone who doesn’t want to take 45 minutes everyday putting my face on! I have experimented with different products, changed up the order of the products and added and eliminated some.

At this point, I have my routine down to a science! It takes me about 15 minutes, sometimes a few minutes more and sometimes a few minutes less. I will forever be someone who tries new products, especially with my subscription to Boxycharm, but I have my tried and true products that I keep in my arsenal.

My 15-Minute Everyday Makeup Routine

I want to share with you my everyday makeup routine, products included, so all of those busy moms out there who don’t have a ton of time in the morning, can still feel pretty and have fun with makeup! I am going to break down the order of products that I use and where you can find them to buy!

First thing when I wake up in the morning, I put on my Dr. Brandt Pores No More Primer. A lot of people say to wash your face in the morning but when I do that or when I put on moisturizer in the morning, my makeup doesn’t lay right! I do this first so it has time to dry and soak into my skin. You can grab this primer for $20.85 on Amazon!

The next thing I do is apply my foundation. I use Maybelline FitMe Matte+Poreless in the shade 112-Natural Ivory! You can learn about this foundation here. I recently shared a post on the blog detailing each of the brushes I use. Read that article to find out more about the brush that I use to apply my foundation!

After my foundation, I use my beauty sponge to apply my concealer. The concealer I use is the Maybelline FitMe Concealer in Fair. This is my absolute favorite concealer and I only use it on any blemishes that I may have.

I used to apply my concealer under my eyes too but I found it to be time consuming so I only do that if I am going somewhere special. I got it from Amazon for $5.00!

I set my foundation and concealer with Coty Airspun Translucent Powder. This powder is a staple in my makeup bag! I use the beauty sponge to apply this powder as well! For only $6.00 on Amazon, you seriously need this product!

My favorite part is next: contouring! I used to be so scared to contour because I didn’t know what I was doing to be honest. But after playing around with it, I can’t do without it now! I use the Pro Contour palette by Profusion in light to do my contouring.

I definitely don’t go as in depth as lots of others do, I simply put the bronzer right under my cheekbones (I hope that makes sense!) and on my forehead right by my hairline. These colors are perfect for my pale skin, which is sometimes hard to find!

After the bronzer, I apply blush on the apples of my cheeks and highlighter on my cheeks, nose and cupids bow. I have a few different blushes that I like to use but lately I have been sticking to the RealHer Be Fearless, Be Limitless palette and using the color Fearless. For highlighter, I use the Pur Bronze & Brighten palette!

After all of this is done, I promise it only takes a few minutes to apply all of these products, I set my face with the Cover FX Illuminating Setting Spray! Let me tell you, this product is worth every penny. This spray helps my makeup stay on all day and gives a subtle glow.

Now, if all of this has only taken me like 10 minutes, then I may do a little more on my eyes! I like to try new looks and mix colors from different palettes when I have the time. Most days however, I stick to eyeliner and mascara. My favorites are Beauty For Real Eyeliner in Black Magic and Stila Extreme Lash Mascara!

I know this may seem like a lot of makeup and a ton of steps but each one only takes a small amount of time to apply! Depending on how I’m feeling, I may even apply some lipstick or gloss. Most days however I just put chapstick on throughout the day.
