As my beauty and fashion blog approaches it's first birthday (Yay!) I'm trying out some new things and one of those things is offering weekly features. One of my first features is what I call, Tuesday Top 5's, which is a list of my fav beauty and fashion products that play to a theme. What better theme to start off with after coming off a long weekend then listing my top five makeup products that I use on a lazy beauty day. Today definitely qualifed as one of those days and I have my go-to items that gives me the fresh face I want when I'm not in the mood to be cosmetically creative!
CoverGirl Press Powder
This handy, dandy powder gets my face instantly fresh and shine-free in a minute. On those days when I'm extremely lazy, I just apply some powder in my T-zone after applying moisturizer. I have a fresh looking complexion in a minute!
ANEW Youth-Awakening Eyeshadow and Primer Kit*
I just started using this recently in Cinnamon Shimmer and its definitely a time saver. With a prime*r, smoothing eye shadow powder, and highlighting powder in one, my eyes are done using one compact. After using this my eyes looking brighter and more awake than I am!
TooFaced Eyeshadow in Full Frontal
This is definitely one of my favorite eyeshadows to use. Whether I use it just on my brow bone or all over, this color is also an instant eye brightener all by itself. Offering a little shimmery bonus, it gives my eyes great natural shape and definition. besides, you gotta love the name!
Avon SuperExtend Mascara*
Mascara is definitely one of those things a lot of beauty bloggers will tell you is an absolute cosmetic basic, and they're right! I use this one especially on my lazy days because all I need is one coat to have my lashes looking long with just one coat. Because honestly, when you're not in the mood, who wants to spend too much time with mascara?
Mary Kay Nourishine Lip Gloss in Berry Sparkle
If you know me, you know I love lip gloss and this one is no exception. I always grab for this one because its a color that goes with everything! It also gives my face a nice, subtle pop of color to go with my lazy aka natural makeup look! It's not too pink with a little pinch of sparkle that's a great color all year round!
