I’m going to share a secret with you ladies.
A way to save you time in the morning, using your products to a higher capacity by introducing a new way to use what you already reach for daily.
Using your cheek colors, on your eyes.
In the mornings if I wear any shadows it’s usually in some cream form. Most of the time they have very little to no color, just attempting to create the effect of looking less tired and giving them a morning pick me up.
This tends to act as my “primer” if you don’t have time for this step, concealer works in a pinch.
A trick I learned and started to incorporate in my daily routine is to take my blush or bronzer and sweep them over my lids with a fluffy brush.
Not only will this automatically go with the colors already used on your face, but it makes everything come together in a few easy swipes! I’m a lip balm girl in the morning so this is makes me all set!
Colors I love using this trick in particular with are Rimmel’s Santa Rose, MAC’s Tenderling, NARS Laguna (any bronzer will give the same effect), and have even gone as far as using NARS O! It doesn’t look weird so long as the wash is sheer, and really does help add some additional dimension to your look pulling everything together.
Blush, bronzer, highlighter – it all works!
It doesn’t have to just be across the lid, highlighter in the inner corner and brown bone, bronzer in the crease or as a liner, play with it!
NARS Madly comes to mind as a wonderful candidate, maybe I’ll try that tomorrow!
Experiment and try find your new favorite 2:1 product! You will see how fast and simple this little step is.
