It's always a good idea to have a quick and easy makeup routine that you can do in just five minutes or less, especially when you're running late for school or work. This is a proven way to achieve a fresh, polished look using a minimal amount of makeup products.

Face:
The last thing you want to do in the morning is to apply every product on it's own. Therefore, a tinted moisturizer with an SPF 20 comes in handy. It  moisturizes, protects, and gives a nice luminosity to the face. However, as a tinted moisturizer, it doesn't give me enough coverage.
After applying a tinted moisturizer, I go ahead and apply MAC Studio Fix Powder in NC 30 for a fuller coverage, and to prevent an oily appearance during the day. The powder looks very natural on the skin, and never leaves a cakey finish on me. I absolutely love the combination of these two products together, as they compliment each other really well.

Brows:
It is an amazing pencil that combines wax,pencil, and a powder all-in-one. It does a good job filling in the sparse areas of my brows, and the color matching is fabulous as it's neither too warm nor too cool. The triangular shape tip makes it easy to sculpt the perfect arch and define my eyebrows that would look natural as a result.
I don't have anything prominent to say about this product. I prefer the Anastacia Brow Gel over this. However, I didn't have it at the moment of filming this video.

Eyes:
I have quite oily lids that have a tendency to make my eyeshadows crease a lot during the day, so wearing an eyelid primer is a must for me.
It's a great palette to have in your makeup collection. It includes eight shimmery and eight matte ultra-pigmented, buttery-smooth eyeshadows. What more do you need? In the video, I used a 'white' on the eyelids, as it compliments brown eyes very well, and 'mauve' on the crease.   To define the eyes, I applied a 'black' eyeshadow with an eyeliner brush.
One of my favorite mascaras on the market. I've tried many high-end ones that weren't as good as this drugstore mascara.

Lips:
Nyx's soft matte lip creams are one of the best lip products I've tried as they're long-wearing with a nice selection of shades. Istanbul is a nice pinky-mauve color that is perfect for everyday wear.
