Five Minute Contour

by theoxfordtrunk

I LOVE makeup and beauty products, I could spend all day playing with them.  Unfortunately, between two kids, a dog, and a husband I’m lucky if I have 5mins to do my makeup.  I’m usually multitasking (I was nursing while trying to take these pictures =) ) So this is my 5 min contour.

Skin Prep: start with a clean face

2.) Moisturize

Ok, this is my all time favorite tinted moisturizer! I use the Praline shade

*Please excuse these huge bags under my eyes, newborn life!

4.) Now you are ready for a quick contour:

use a concealer or foundation stick 1-2 shades lighter than your skin and make an upside down triangle under your eyes and your T-zone

Then use a shade 2-3x darker than your skin in the areas shown above

*I also like to line my lips with the dark cream as well

I like this and this for concealers

and this, this, and this for the area you are shadowing

5.) Blend together with a stipple brush

6.) Swipe on a powder bronzer in the same areas you used the dark cream contour

7.) Wet your beauty blender or sponge and blend blend blend

8.) Spritz your face and your ready to go!

This is my favorite ( I spritz my face throughout the day too)
