Natalie's Out-The-Door Makeup Edit

Makeup has always been the last step for me before I run out the door. Usually because I'm blow drying my hair or rummaging through my closet for the right top to wear, but I have always de-prioritized makeup on the list of things to do before I go out to meet up with people or even go to work. With that being said, I think I just never really worry about taking all of the time to intricately put makeup on or fuss with a specific look—I've found my key staple products that I love and it only takes me 10 minutes to throw it on and get out the door. 

I know it seems like a lot of product, but I swear there's a science to applying it all quickly and seamlessly...at least with good lighting and a damp Beauty Blender that is! In addition, this has been my quick touchup routine for the past few months, so practice makes perfect...most days. 
For the face...
Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Finland- I used to use this during college and wasn't sure why I stopped because it is just so darn stinkin good! I've struggled to find just the right tinted moisturizer that isn't too full coverage or dewy, and Nars always comes through. It also doesn't really oxidize, so my face doesn't look orange. It gives just enough coverage so that it blurs any profound imperfections. 

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla- Of course, I have to pair this moisturizer with one of the creamiest, long wearing concealers. I will say, it is a bit on the pricier side, but it's always a fall back for me because many drugstore concealers I've used start to crack on my face overtime.  

Morphe Equalizer Foundation Primer- When I do remember to put on primer, I've been using Morphe's! Between this one and Smashbox, I've loved the way it blurs my pores but also helps my tinted moisturizer glide and stay on all throughout the day. 

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow Duo- I feel like if there was one product I couldn't go without, it would be bronzer. I reach for it every time and use it practically everywhere...all about that glow! I use CT even as eyeshadow sometimes...which cuts the makeup applying time down a whole 30 seconds. 

L'Oreal Infallible Fresh Wear Powder Foundation- So on days where I'm just in need of a quick fix, a swipe of this miracle powder is all I need. It's been raved about and for good reason. It has all of the coverage and blurring qualities of a full coverage matte foundation. I will either use this on its own or sparingly though when I do opt for liquid foundation underneath. 
On the eyes...
Morphe Micro Brow Pencil in Praline- I've been through many eyebrow pencils, and if there is a second product I can't go without applying, it's this. I just feel like once my brows are completely done and filled out, my face is framed and it makes all the difference. Really been loving this one! 

Benefit 24 HR Brow Setter- Every now and then I'll remember to set my brows, or just use a brow gel to hold them in place. This one doesn't leave my brows feeling really tacky or sticky either. 

Natasha Denona Baby Biba Palette- Three is simple enough for me! If I'm feelin like I'm in a bit of a need for glam, I've been using this palette to smoke out my eyes a bit. It's super creamy and smooth—I will say a little bit of fall out, but sometimes that makes it better to blend. 

Diorshow Mascara- Hands down, my favorite mascara of all-time. Out of all of the ones I've tried growing up, I finally found the perfect one to curl and lengthen without clumps or making my lashes all spidery. This has become a Natalie staple for sure. 
Don't forget the lips...
Fenty Gloss Bomb in Fu$$y- Okay, so I'm already in the car ready to go, but I can't forget to swipe the juiciest, creamiest, luscious lip gloss I've ever owned! It literally tastes like frosting, too. It doesn't stick or dry quickly either. One swipe—maybe a sneaky reapply—and I'm set for the night.
