During the summer months (and most months) I do not spend a ton of time on makeup on a daily basis. Some days I wear none. But if I do, I mostly do this quick and easy five minute summer makeup!

Five Minute Summer Makeup

First, I prime with the Laura Mercier oil free primer. This is my absolute favorite primer and the one I have used the longest.  The tinted moisturizer I have been using NON STOP is the First Aid Beauty one. I love that it gives me a great amount of coverage, SPF, and doesn’t feel heavy.

The best concealer for my horrendous dark circles is the NARS creamy concealer. I also LOVE Maybelline instant age rewind. I then use the Laura Mercier pressed powder to set. I follow that up with either NARS orgasm blush or Milani baked blush. Then I highlight with the Physicians Formula butter highlighter and use the Physicians Formula butter bronzer!

I use the Givenchy Mascara primer and then either the Glossier lash stick mascara, the L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara, or the It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara.

If I use any lip gloss lately it’s been the Physicians Formula healthy lip in bare with me.

I finish with my brows and either use Glossier boy brow or the L’Oreal brow stylist!

This entire process takes five minutes or less in most cases and stays on great even through Texas summer heat.

What is your favorite five minute summer makeup?

      This looks like a quick and easy summer makeup routine. I like that the First Aid Beauty has SPF 30.

      I am all about quick and light makeup in the summer. The last thing I want is heavy makeup melting down my face in the summer heat! LOL

      I like the idea of only spending five minutes applying my makeup. My husband would probably enjoy seeing the results of a little self-care, too.

      I’ve heard so many great things about Nars Orgasm! Right now, I’m very much in love with my Lancome Blush In Love, but afterwards, I might just give this one a try

      I always go for the “no make up” make up look. These products and tips for a quick 5 minute make up is really helpful, especially for moms like me who barely has enough me time during the day!

      I am all about a five minute summer face! I find I cannot wear a full face makeup anyways in the heat.

      My makeup routine for the summer goes down to practically nothing! Lol…I usually sweat it off anyway so I just do face wash, moisturizer, mascara, fill in my eyebrows a little and lip color.

      I just got these great Marc Jacobs lipgloss sticks and they are my favorite thing for summer! They have rich color and shine but don’t feel sticky at all!
