So tell me, do you wear makeup? The number one reason I hear from women as why they don't is time. Is that that case for you? Well, you're in luck because today I'm sharing a look that is not only super FAST (I'm talking 5 minutes, y'all) but it's EASY, too! Yes, even if you're a beginner you can do this. This is awesome for all of us who are on-the-go. AND it's totally budget-friendly. I'm using RIMMEL products, including the awesome (you're gonna wanna try this one out) Stay Matte drugstore foundation. KEEP READING until the end because there's a sweepstakes to enter for a basket of RIMMEL goodies!
I purchased everything I needed easily at Walmart, but to save you even MORE money, check your Sunday paper for a $1 off coupon on RIMMEL Stay Matte Foundation or Scandaleyes Retro Glam mascara (pictured below). RIMMEL celebrates their 180 year anniversary this month!
Here are the RIMMEL products I'm using for my #beautyinspiration:
To mix it up, I'm using GIFs today in my tutorial. To begin, I'm using RIMMEL Stay Matte Foundation. If you have oily skin, you're going to want to try this out! I love the mousse texture and how well it worked--no more cakey foundation! I used a brush to apply the shade Soft Beige. Since I have dry skin, I didn't use powder to set and it lasted me all day. RIMMEL has a highly-recommended Stay Matte powder, if needed.
Next, I applied concealer and started on my eyes. I used the RIMMEL shadow quad in Smokey Brun, but they have several other ones to find the look that's right for you. Taking a flat shader brush (clean fingers work too) I applied the cream shade all over my lid:
Next, I used a pencil brush (a cotton swab or the applicator that comes with the palette works too) dipped in the darkest shade, and ran that along my lower lash line. I like this since it doesn't look as harsh. Then I used a clean small brush and used the lightest shade underneath my brows and in the inner corners of my eyes for highlight.
To finish the eyes, I used RIMMEL waterproof liner along the top lash line. Make sure it's really into those lashes--there should be no gap of lid showing between your lashes and the liner. I curled my lashes and used RIMMEL Scandaleyes Retro Glam mascara. The hour-glass shape gives lashes length and volume. This is my second tube of it!
Blush and RIMMEL Natural Bronzer were added. Since this is a matte bronzer, you can use it to contour with too, but I chose to use it just for a bit of color.
My lips have the RIMMEL Show Off in Celestial. Not part of the tutorial, but I also painted my nails with RIMMEL Salon Pro polish and top coat. It gives a gel-like finish and can last up to 10 days. It's really good.
And that's it! Here's the finished look:
And here's the before and after:
I did this look in 5 minutes and 10 seconds!
And here's the look at the end of the day! Quick, easy, and long-lasting.
