Products I use in a Hurry/ Products to "Get By"

More days than not, I wear makeup. The odd day will come when I know I won't be leaving the house so I don't bother. However, if I know I have to run to the store, or go to the post office, or any small errand-y type thing, I will make a small effort and put a touch of makeup on. I definitely do not go through my entire routine, though, and I reach for products that will basically just give me a more enhanced natural look and a bit of a glow.

When I'm going for this type of look my main focuses are, skin, eyebrows, blush and eyelashes. I don't deal with concealer, contouring, eyeliner or anything extra, I'm talking just the basics here.

1. Skin:
 Rimmel Match Perfection in 101 Classic Ivory SPF 18. This is just the foundation I've been trying out recently, but any foundation that I'm currently using would work. I'm not a tinted moisturizer fan, but if I were, these would be great days to break that out! My goal with this isn't to look flawless, just to even everything out.

2. Eyes
L'oreal Voluminous Orignal. Again, this just happens to be the mascara I've been using, but it is particularly great for days like this because it gives great length as well as volume and really makes you look awake and bright-eyed. 

3. Brows:
 Milani Brow Tint Pen 02 Dark Brown. This is a product I've talked about quite a few times here and I always reach for it on days when I'm either in a hurry, or am just trying to add a little definition to my brows. It has a felt tip pen, which seems totally weird for your eyebrows, but it's quick, it's easy and it gives you shape and definition without looking over-done.

4. Cheeks:

 Soap & Glory Glow All Out. The reason I like to use this as a blush on these types of days is because it's very subtle. You get a hint of a peachy pink color, a bit of a glow and overall, it just gives my face a little more life and it's all I need.

What are your go-to products when you're just trying to "get by" for the day?

  2. Love Soap and Glory powders recently :)

    1. I wish I could get them here to try more!

  3. I really need to look into this brow make-up you keep talking about!

    1. Hahaha, you already have nice full brows!

  4. I've only tried the Soap and Glory glow all out and never as a blush - will definitely have to do so.


    1. You should! It's so pretty and subtle on fair skin :)

  5. i want to try that blush! never heard of it before!

    1. It's actually not even a blush! I'm pretty sure it's meant to be an all over face powder to give you a glow and other than amazon or something, I think you can only get it in Europe!
