"No Makeup" Makeup!

There are days when I just don't want to go through the entire makeup routine, especially on weekends!  On these days, however, I don't necessarily want to leave the house bare faced either.  These are times when I utilize my "no makeup" makeup routine.  This is what I use for my "no makeup" days:

I start off with a tinted moisturizer with SPF as a base.  I love the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in Bisque.  It's hydrating but not greasy at the same time.  After the tinted moisturizer, I use my favorite Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (this one is in the shade Ginger) to cover up any remaining blemishes or spots.  I don't use any brushes with the tinted moisturizer or concealer, just my fingers... application is nice and fast!  Next, I use a powder to reduce any leftover shine on my t-zone.  If you have drier skin, you can skip this step.  Here, I use the BareMinerals Touch Up Veil in Light.  Normally, I would use a translucent powder, but today, I want slightly more coverage.

I don't use any eye makeup on my "no makeup" days since I feel that if I'm going to spend time doing my eyes, I might as well go through the entire routine.  For this routine, I just finish off with a light blush of my choice.  Today I'm using the Milani Powder Blush in tea rose, which gives my cheeks a little bit of color, but nothing noticeable.  I top it off with my favorite lip gloss, Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector, which basically highlights your natural lip colors.

There are five items here, but this takes all of 5 minutes to put on!  It's super easy and fast.  Now I'm ready for my weekend!

Happy Saturday!
