The 7 Minute Face

Today's post is inspired by the Cargo 7 in 7 kit that I spotted on
This kit includes:
OneBase™ (02)-
Essential Palette (Warm Neutral)-
Eye Pencil (Brown)-
BeachBlush™ (Sunset Beach)-
Reverse Lip Liner (01)-
Classic Lip Gloss with Timestrip Technology (Tobago)

I think this is a fantastic idea, as we can all afford to simplify our routines in the morning.

Here is my version of the 7 item face. Since I am known to wake up at the last possible moment on weekdays, I have found ways to streamline my makeup routine in a way that gets me made up in less than 10 minutes.

- Tinted Moisturizer with SPF- SPF coverage is so important, as is proper hydration of the skin. Throw in some tint for coverage and luminescence, and you have a quick face staple. I recommend either Smashbox Face Tint or Remede Labs Translucent UV Coat.
- Bronzer- Nothing screams tired more than dull, pasty skin. I love to sweep my Chanel moisturizing bronzer powder on the hollows of my cheeks, temple, and under my chin for a healthy glow. Smashbox Halo Glow Bronzing Powder works well too!
- A shimmering Eyeshadow Primer- Light colors and shimmers instantly light up the eye area, making you appear more awake. Primers also go far in making your shadow last all day. My current go-to happens to be MAC Shadestick in Lemon Chiffon and Urban Decay Cream Shadow in Whipped
- Mascara- A must for peepers that pop. My go to is Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash, a mascara that lengthens, thickens, and separates with a couple of quick coats.
- Blush- A pop of color on the apples of the cheeks is so youthful and fresh-looking. My go to's include NARS Orgasm and Sin.
- The Nars Holiday eyeshadow palette- Containing 6 very versatile shades that range from nudes to vibrant, you can literally create dozens of looks

- A full coverage lipstick- Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are fantastic because they are not only opaque, but creamy and full coverage! No gloss required.
And thats my 7 minute face. Whats yours?

I love the NARs pencils though. I only have two colours but wanting more.
