quick makeup routine or a 10-minute head transplant?

I’ve been debating posting this for a while because my before pictures are so ridiculous and embarrassing, but I got to this whatever point and I’m just like this is me take it or leave it.

ANYWAY, this post will be sharing my beauty routine, and I promise I don’t look THAT bad before makeup but sometimes I think I’m being funny and the results are more horrifying than I anticipate. C’est la vie.

We live in a time of facades and fakeness – with some people literally crumbling under the pressure from trying to live a “fake” life for instagram and the media. I thought it would be a good time to share a little more behind the scenes than I’d usually be comfortable with.

Please note, I am never going to show my bare, makeupless face on the internet again. But for the sake of transparency, behold my babe-a-licious morning mug… and the head transplant routine that takes ten minutes.


tell me I’m pretty          –>        pretending this is “natural”

The concept was prompted by before and after snapchats I sent a friend. Feast your eyes yet again…


I am the worst snapchat friend

Please tell your eyes I send my condolences.

But like… yay transparency! ehhhh…

Let’s move on. Makeup!

The steps are simple:

  1. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer with a sponge
  2. Apply base mascara/conditioner (mine is Chanel)
  3. Under eye concealer via First Aid Beauty – Eye Duty Triple Remedy
  4. A little cream blush (bareMinerals pop of passion)
  5. Brow brushing and lining with an Anastasia pencil
  6. Cream eyeshadow – Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Colour in gold
  7. Liquid liner, in a thin line with a slight wing off the edge
  8. MascaraChanel Inimitable Intense
  9. Lip color of the day; this day was NYX soft matte lip cream in Antwerp

Sometimes I wear more, but most of the time I wear less, honestly. However, the results really speak for themselves; here’s the after picture again (so you can see it without being forced to see the “before” photo):


So in lieu of getting a head transplant, try this 10 minute “natural glow” routine and see how it goes!

    My boyfriend says you look the same with makeup and no makeup. This is his opinion and he’s a good looking guy with good taste for women lol!!!! You’re so pretty!!! Don’t try to fool us with your funny picture without makeup! ( I love the glasses btw) I think in general the only purpose of makeup is to accentuate our already beautiful rasgos!

    I’m obsessed with Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer! I recently started using in place of powder foundation and not only did this cut my makeup time in half but it gives you the most gorgeous glow!
