5-Minute Natural Makeup Routine

Happy 1st day of Spring! While it might not feel quite like it (currently raining here), I thought it would be good to show you a quick 5-minute makeup look that's Spring ready. If you're anything like me, you might have been deprived of the sun these past months and need add in some color. Not only is this quick, but gives you that natural and fresh look that says Spring to me.

While I'm not big on liquid foundation for everyday, I do love a pressed powder. My current favorite is by Portland brand, Alima Pure. It gives enough coverage for everyday and has nourishing rosehip in it. 

Nothing says awake like the eyes and I pay a little more attention here. W3ll People's Expressionist mascara gives your lashes a nice coat that still looks very natural. I'll usually do 2 coats for good measure. Then, I add their liquid eyeliner. Now for a natural makeup brand, I have to say I'm hooked on this eyeliner. The texture and brush make it so easy to apply. Does it stay on like a regular brand? No. It just becomes a tad faded if you wear it all day, but you'll still have eyeliner on. 

Now here's where you're going to fake that color! Wake up that Winter skin with some bronzer. This is another one of W3ll People's star products and it's not just me who agrees. Allure gave it the seal of approval. Beside having clean ingredients, I love that it's a loose powder allowing you to use as much of it as you need. Whether you're lighter or darker, you can always build up the color for the desired glow. 

I'm normally a lipstick gal, but recently picked up this new lipgloss by Kjaer Weis from Cos Bar and has made me fall back in love with lipglosses. It's not sticky and has just enough sheer color to punch up your lips. 

Hope this tutorial helps freshen up your look!


  1. This makeup routine is perfect! All the essentials! I cannot leave the house without foundation. I love the nice, finished look it gives me. If I'm in a hurry, I skip eye makeup. I work as a teacher and always think "My eyes don't have to look perfect to teach kids!"


  2. Yes on pressed powder and a good lip gloss. You have really mastered the natural look! Love it. <3 Jamie
