- Beauty, Make up

The one certain thing about a baby’s nap is that it’s so unpredictable.  Some mornings, Zoey can nap for a solid 2 hours, some other mornings, she’d nap only for 30 mins.  So, I must take advantage of the time to do as many things as I could, as quickly as I could do them.  On the days that I’d want to wear makeup, I have set a good routine that takes 10 mins max to achieve a decent makeup look.  My goal is not to look instagram-worthy, but to not look like a zombie.

After I apply my morning skincare products, I will apply the Elf Poreless Face Primer all over my face.  This primer is not a super mind-blowing product, but it does a good job in smoothing out my skin before the rest of the makeup application.  Next, I would take Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45 and just apply it all over my face with my fingers – I don’t usually apply foundation product with my fingers, but when you want to save time, boy, your fingers are the BEST tools!  Next, I prime my eyelids using NYX HD Eye Shadow Base, also not the best out there but it works for an everyday makeup.  Then, I wash my hands – and move on to set all that with NYX Stay Matte Not Flat Powder Foundation.

For the eye look, I have just been using one-color all over my lids.  My current go-to shade is MAC Mulch, it’s the perfect rustic mid-tone brown that gives enough depth/dimension on my skin tone without looking too dark and smokey.  I just pack it on with a Sigma E25 and blend it with Morphe E27.  Then, with the Wet n Wild Proline Felt-tip Eyeliner in Brown, I would create a thin line and smudge it lightly.  Next, I’d curl my eyelashes and apply 2 coats of L’oreal Telescopic Carbon Black – it’s good enough volume for everyday look but I love how it coats and seperates my lashes, making them look naturally long and black.  Last for the eyes, I would comb through my brows using a spoolie and apply Maybelline Brow Precise Fiber Volumizer – eyes done!

To finish off the rest of my face, I would apply a blush and subtle highlighter – the ones that I have been reaching for quite a lot recently are NARS Orgasm, classic cult fave and Essence Pure Nude Highlighter, a $4 highlighter that is so natural and beautiful!  voilà, makeup is done!

And as you can see I have no lip products, because tbh I barely ever used any lipstick or anything like that anymore, because everyday I’m giving Zoey a lot of kisses, biting her yummy toes and cheeks, blowing raspberries on her round belly, and I don’t want any lip product goes on to her face or smearing all over my face, so yeah.  Just being honest and practical 🙂


So, what products would you use when you only got 10 mins to do your makeup?
