Anyone who knows me knows that I am always running somewhere. I’ve got my daily morning habit of pressing snooze for about 20 minutes too long and then I’m scrambling to get out the door on time. So perhaps it is out of necessity that I have developed this quick and easy makeup routine that I’m sharing with you here today! I’ve partnered with Yves Rocher to share with you what I call my ‘5 products in 5 minutes’ makeup routine. These are the 5 products that I wear everyday to feel fresh faced and put together. What I really love about them is that the end result barely even looks like you’re wearing any makeup. Enhancing natural beauty is my favourite thing about makeup and that is something that Yves Rocher does so well.
So, in addition to sharing with you my beauty routine, I am really excited to introduce you to Yves Rocher! Yves Rocher is a beauty brand that creates plant based products that respect the consumer and the environment. I’m going to be sharing a few of their products on here over the next few months and also sharing a little insight into the botanical background of each of the products I try.
Well, we’re starting off with a bang because this concealer is one of my favourites ever. It is smooth to apply and easy to blend. It also just happens to be the best match I have found for my skin…ever! Musk rose oil is the main botanical ingredient here and it helps strengthen the skin and gives this concealer it’s silky smooth qualities. I put concealer all around my eyes (even the lids), on the red sides of my nose, and on any blemishes.
Next step is an eyebrow pencil. I’m not about altering the shape of my brows; I like to simply fill them in where they are a little sparse. After filling in I use the brush end to push the hairs upward a bit so that the top line of my brows does not fall flat.
Mascara is my favourite beauty product and I am SO happy with the Yves Rocher mascaras I have tried so far. The mascaras use elemi gum from the Manila Elemi tree which helps to give the lashes structure. This is the first time I have used a mascara with such a small wand and I really like it – it’s able to reach the tiny lashes and get right to the base of all of the lashes. Hellooo to longer lashes!
My other favourite thing? Blush! I rarely wear bronzer but blush is my jam. This always feels like the step in my makeup routine that makes the biggest difference. I sweep the blush across my cheek bone letting a little more powder poof onto the apples of my cheeks. Rice bran extract is the botanical ingredient in this natural blush which helps to brighten the skin.
The final touch is always the lips. I love to wear lipstick on occasion but on a daily basis I go for something that is hydrating, comfortable to wear, and close to my natural lip colour – just a tad darker and a little shinier. This lip crayon gives great moisture and natural gloss – just how I like my lips!
And there you have it! My 5 products that make me ready to take on the day!
Thank you to Yves Rocher for partnering on this post, all opinions are my own!
