I subscribe to “Makeupbytiffanyd” on Youtube and one of her recent videos feature her putting a whole face of makeup, including defined eyes, in just 5 minutes. Watch below:
I love this video, it’s so inspiring!
Because I have so much fun putting on makeup, my morning routine has been a little ridiculously long. My alarm goes off at 3:45 am and I try to leave the house by 5:15 am to get to work by 6:15/6:30 am. In between that time period – I snooze my alarm, I check twitter/facebook/news, somehow roll out of bed, make coffee, shower, do my bangs (I don’t blow dry the rest of my hair), put on makeup, throw on some clothes, feed my beloved cat ❤ and rush out the door…all while my boyfriend is still asleep! grrrr lol.
After watching Tiffany’s video, I decided that I too can cut down my makeup application time. I like her video because she’s not just throwing on some lip gloss and foundation and calling it a 5 minute routine. She puts on foundation, powder, bronzer, blush, contouring/defining eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara , lip gloss and a little eyebrow grooming.
I know I can’t do it in 5 minutes because she only runs some clear mascara through her eyebrows and only swipes on some mascara on her naturally curled eyelashes. I, on the other hand, must take time to really fill in my sparse eyebrows and if I want to wear mascara, I have to curl my eyelashes. Also, it takes me a few minutes at least to do my eyeliner.
Soooo..my first goal will be to complete defined eyes and eyebrows in 10 minutes. I’m also trying not to wear foundation or BB cream every day since I was obsessively wearing it for days straight for a few weeks. If I do the whole face, I’ll try to complete everything in 15 minutes. I’ll hit those time goals first and see if I can keep cutting it down.
Is 10-15 minutes still too long?? LOL. Wish me luck!
