5 Min Makeover

My friend Kris I. is a minimalist when it comes to makeup. She keeps her hair on point, can step out in a killer pump, but doesn't feel comfortable applying makeup. During a little downtime today, I showed Kris what she could do quickly in the morning to add a little umph to her look.

Here's Kris:

Now doesn't she have the best set of lashes??
1. We applied a primer to her face (to hold the makeup in tact.)

2. Based her lid with concealer (to keep the shadow from sliding and creasing and to pop the color.)

3. Applied MAC eyeshadow Girlie to 3/4 of lid starting from inner corner. Then, on the outer lid I used MAC Cranberry.

4. I lined her eye with MAC Earthline technakohl liner.

5. She applied CoverGirl Lash Exact to her lashes.

6. I dusted over her t zone and cheeks with Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Mosaic Bronzer Blush.

7. She used her own Victoria Secret potted gloss (in a lovely pink shade.)
