I love makeup (but I think we already established that). I also wear it every day. Sometimes, however, I just don’t have time to do the full-on makeup routine and lately, it has been a lot like that.
Last month, I was introduced to the Artistry Spring Trend Collection. I have the full line at home and I can tell you that from start to finish, I take UNDER 10 minutes to do my makeup. Sometimes I get it done in five!
(1) Sheer Cheek Color in Peach and Rose
(2) Eyeliner Pencil in Port Wine and Bronzed Patina
(3) Water Color Pearl Trio in Golden Pearl, Crushed Rose, Bronzed Shell and Golden Sunset, Twilight, Midnight Star
(4) Lip Duo Set in Fresh Pink and Lilac Shimmer
I start off by applying Artistry tinted moisturizer with SPF 15. Then I apply Neutrogena Shine Control primer and a light sweep of foundation.
Next, I lightly apply Artistry Sheer Cheek Color in Peach and then I add a finishing powder.
I spend most of my time on my skin, whereas before I used to spend most of my time on eyes. With the new Artistry collection, however, I now spend the least amount of time on my eyes!
I shake up one of the Artistry liquid eye colors and apply it to my eyelids with one quick sweep. Golden Sunset is my current fave, but I find that I can wear any color at any given time. These liquid eye colors are truly magic. I used to have to do the foiling technique to get that metallic, shimmer color, I can now simply shake up one of the colors and apply. If you do get these liquid eye colors (and I highly recommend that you do), remember to store them upright. Otherwise, when you go to apply it it’ll be really watery and you won’t have any color on the wand.
I finish off my look by applying a thin coat of Artistry eyeliner in bronzed patina to the outer part of my eyes (to enhance and enlarge my eyes) and then I add Artistry lip color in fresh pink. Most of the time I will also have a few falsies on the outer lashes. And there you go. That is my entire makeup routine. I should also mention that it is a luxurious experience applying Artistry makeup. The containers are truly classy and have a great weight to them. You really get what you pay for!
