15 Minute Face Contour and Highlight

I give myself less than 15 minutes to get dressed and look like I spent 45 minutes. For the past 2 did not want to focus any attention to my eyes but more on my entire face.
Here is my method a full coverage foundation routine including a highlight, contour straight arch filled in brows.

Night and Day Face Prep:
I like to start off with a nice clean face. Exfoliate and cleanse at night I then apply Clinique's Even Better Eyes" Dark Circle Corrector and no face moisturizer before bed. In the morning wash face with organic face cleanser by Aubrey, and towel blot dry.

Application Method
Prime Face.
Apply Clinique's "Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion, Acne Solutions Clearing Gel, and BB Cream by Marcell (obsession coming soon) in "Golden Glow" blending down to neck.

Concealing any leftover under eye dark circles, use Palladio Herbal (tube) Concealer and LaFemme Cream (pot) Concealer blending outward towards the sides of the eyes with a beauty blender. Apply Maybelline Fit Foundation Stick to the entire face (avoiding under the eyes) blending it into the skin with a flat top powder brush and barely blending under the eyes afterwards.

With a ¼ inch in width fan brush apply Ben Nye luxury powder in "Banana" underneath the eyes with giving time for it to bake into the skin. With a kabuki powder brush, apply mineral loose powder to face blending into the neck and barely touching under the eyes.

In the hollows of the cheek apply MAC Studio Fix Pressed Powder Foundation to the hollows of the cheek, hairline, and sides of nose. To blend and finish off the contour swipe a dense fan brush in bronzer (my fav was recently been cancelled by Victoria's Secret) and blend in and then lightly dust over my entire face with the same fan brush.

Highlight Again
With Elf Cosmetics Baked Blush in "Pinktastic" apply to upper cheekbones, done the bridge and bring up towards the forehead.

Brush brows with spooley and fill in my brows with a wet n' wild pencil in a dark brown color. To clean and highlight under the brows apply a color from the Elf Cosmetics "Medium" concealer palette and perfectly blend out with a concealer brush.

Apply Sally Girl lip gloss in cherry/pink bubble gum shade. The affordable $1.00 lipgloss is amazeballs! Mist face with Elf Cosmetics Mist and Set Spray. These look has a series of steps but it can be easily recreated (with practice) within 15 minutes or less. It's a minimalist, makeup lovers dream.
