Makeup Look To Master: The Quickie

Even if you are not a perpetually late person like me, you need to master the quickie!  From my 5 makeup looks to master the quickie is the easiest and most necessary!  Need something you can quickly do to feel good and look good. Your quickie makeup look has to be quick and easy and with no-fail products!

I have a few of these quickie techniques that I rotate, based on scenario and what products I have at hand… aka what’s already in my purse, what’s on top of my makeup bag if I’m home, what activity I’m doing, going to work/going to the store/etc…  For this look I went with my lashes and lips technique.

On my face I just used concealer, concentrating on under eyes, around my nose and chin.  (I’m using a discontinued one so currently on the hunt for a new one, spam me with your favorites!)  I usually keep a mini blush in my purse right now its a mini Nars Laguna Bronzer and Orgasm Blush which I swirled together and lightly applied.  For eyes it’s just lots of mascara with the Avon Love at First Lash Mascara.  I kinda apply it messy so the transfer kinda darkens the lash line like a liner would.  And then seal the deal with a bright lipstick, Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Dragonfruit.  Quick and Easy.

It’s the bright bold lip that makes this looked so finished and polished.  If I have an ounce more of time and a good mirror I’ll do my eyeliner with my Avon SuperExtend Liquid Liner Pen (see review here).  Gets me closer to my Everyday Slay look.  Nice thing about being an Avon lady is I always have those little lipstick bullets in a pocket, drawer, bag, somewhere so I can get this quick look very easily.

This is also the technique I used for my beach makeup, only I use a waterproof mascara and wear a tinted lip balm instead of lipstick and more bronzer than blush.  But real quick my earrings are from the Julia X Avon collection which is coming back to the outlet next week so be sure to check out http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger for them and for my Avon makeup products I used in this look!  Be sure to keep following along my 5 makeup looks to master series here on the blog because all these selfies have me like…

Ugh Mondays!  Regardless if you had a busy weekend or a chill one Monday’s are always tough. Which usually means I’m running late and something has to suffer. Thats when the super quick makeup formula is applied!

Concealer + Bronzer/Blush + Mascara + Bright Lip = Winning!

All The Products Needed For A Quick Look

This formula is just enough to brighten up your face and look presentable for what the day brings.  I’ll start with Avon Extra Lasting Concealer around the eyes, nose and chin.  The wand makes it quick to apply and fingers melt it into the skin for nice coverage.  A blush and bronzer duo makes for a quick grab when doing this quick makeup look, I like Elf Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder in St. Lucia.

For Face:  Concealer and Bronzer/Blush

When doing a quick eye look the key is just to open up the eyes with some mascara.  The best mascara for the job is the Avon Big and False mascara, because it’s a fiber lash mascara it almost curls your lashes for you, adds volume and length and gives you a full lash look that can stand on it’s own.  If you have a few extra minutes add a shimmery neutral eyeshadow and a quick swipe of eyeliner and you’re all set!

Lastly, it’s all about the lips.  I bolder color on your lips will tie everything together looking like you spent more than a minute on your look.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again these new Avon Perfectly Matte Lipsticks are the business so try a shade like Ravishing Rose for a bright choice.
