HealthyGirl Beauty: Fresh Face Make up Removing Towel Review

My 10 Minute Beauty Ritual

I don’t dooooooo make up. But knowing that I have to look my best everyday it’s been kinda hard to get myself to drag my butt out of bed and into my face. So as of recently I’ve been giving myself just the BARE minimum as to what would be quick and easy to use everyday but will not take me over 10 mins to do.

Hey now, I need the full look! So I came up with an easy 5 step solution to get this look without breaking the ‘Time Bank”. I call it “EEBBH”

E- Eyes

E- Eyelashes

B- Brows

B- Blush

H-Hair

Now this is MY beauty ritual, for me it’s best that I highlight these 5 items and for some of you out there that don’t need to spend the time on brows but would like to do lips, then please by all means do so. However unless you wake up and your hair is on fleeeeeeek you bess believe that you will keep hair on this docket!

Eyes

For me, eyes are simply just that…I put in my contacts. I actually need them to see so if you don’t suffer from blindness like me, then you can opt for moisturizer or a base for your face.

Eyelashes

If you don’t dabble in the art of eyelashes, you should really start. I’ve been using Velour Lashes ($23) as of late. I love the way they just sit on your eyes and they last forever. I think I purchased 1 pair and I’ve already used them over 20 times! It’s a pretty good value!

Brows

Dem Brows Doe. I probably couldn’t shape my brows as perfectly, and as easily without Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Brow Pomade and Brow Powder. When applying, I always use the Duo Brush #12 and it makes it so much easier to use.

Blush

I guess you can say I’m a creature of habit. I’ve always used Bobbi Brown Blush ($28) every since my mom got it for me, so I’ve just stuck with it. But something about blush always makes me and my fair skin just feel a bit like I have some color without going overboard on the make up. Just a light touch of color and I’m ready to go! You can always sub this out for contouring, I do that too when I have an extra 5 mins but what I use is Anastasia Contouring Powder Kit ($40).

Hair

Now I read somewhere that “Your hair is your weapon“. No truer words to live by! So I make sure to sharpen that weapon everyday with at least something. Even if it’s a tiny pony tail, I’ll curl my bangs. But messy buns, or hair clips don’t count for me. When you have good hair, confidence will ooze out of you. So take 2 minutes, and make ’em heel!
