perhaps it’s since I’m subconsciously preparing myself for when infant woman shows up as well as I don’t have any type of time whatsoever to do my makeup, however for the past few weeks, I’ve had NO energy or patience whatsoever to do any type of makeup look that takes more than 15 minutes. as well as that’s a totally weird thing for me since I usually like sitting in front of the mirror with all of my colors as well as my brushes as well as just going to town for freaking hours.

I’m presuming it’s just a phase, however it’s likewise been a rapid-response 15-minute discovering experience, as well as understanding is power, right?


Here’s what I’ve discovered so far…

It assists to let go of the concept of “perfect makeup”

Clinique quite simple Eye Palette, quite simple liquid Eyelining Pen as well as Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara
For this 15-minute makeup look I utilized a few products from Clinique, namely their quite simple Eye combination ($44.50), quite simple liquid Eyelining Pen ($19.50) as well as Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara ($17), as well as even though I believe it’s a completely practical look, now that I look carefully at the pictures, I see things I might have fixed, like, I could’ve mixed out the shadow in the outer corner a bit much better as well as perhaps thickened the liner on that end.

I likewise could’ve spent more time on my brows as well as utilized a lash primer before my mascara to make my lashes look longer as well as thicker, however ya understand what? I had a schedule. After my 15 minutes was up, I just let it go…

And that’s the huge thing I’ve discovered about 15-minute makeup looks so far — to provide up on the concept of perfect makeup, which, I know, seems blasphemous.

But seriously, sometimes great sufficient is great enough, as well as a great deal of the time, the bit flaws are only noticeable by hardcore makeup people, as well as only if they’re studying your deal with intensely.

Of course, it is those bit additional touches — like blending whatever to perfection, having a strong-@ss brow game as well as drawing eyeliner so sharp that it might cut glass — that turn an daily look into something truly special, as well as those are all fantastic when you have the time as well as energy for them, however when you don’t…that’s cool, too.

You can usually get away with much less than you think

“Uh…what do you mean I don’t have to wear four colors on my lids!?”

Yup, sometimes you can wear two. Or even one.

IK WEET! Mind blown.

And sometimes you can even avoid primer, highlighter, bronzer or whatever other bit extras you usually do. whatever will be OK.

If something doesn’t turn out the method you want, change your plan

There’s always a method to either repair a error or adapt to it as well as salvage a look, like, with this look, I’d originally organized to do winged liner…

Now, I don’t understand why I believed I might do winged liner with a pen I’ve never utilized before as well as be able to surface in less than 15 minutes, since of program I couldn’t. When I started lining my lash lines, the liner on my right eye ended up OK, however the left side was a bit jagged. Thankfully, instead of freaking out as well as trying to repair it, I altered my game plan.

I dipped an angled clean into the dark plum shade in the Clinique simple Eye Palette, wet it, then ran it along the edge of the line to smooth out the jagged parts. I just skipped the wing as well as went with a liner with a soft edge instead.

Improv as well as creativity are your beauty finest friends

With a bit improv as well as imagination, you can usually utilize a product for something other than what it was designed for, as well as you can always cut corners to save time when you want to/have to.

When I was putting on my makeup for these pics, the whole thing with the liner ended up taking more time than I anticipated, so I improvised for my cheeks. instead of bronzing first, then applying blush, I just mixed my blush as well as bronzer together as well as swept that combo on my cheeks.


Improvisation is your friend, yo!
