Makeup Capsule: Quick and Easy
How to Use Bronzer (and why it’s not the same as Contour)
For this makeup capsule I wanted to choose items that can be multipurpose or don’t require any additional tools! This would be great for a travel capsule (although I am working on a dedicated travel makeup capsule soon!) or just someone who isn’t interested in spending a ton of time on their makeup.
Both lip products can be used as blush, and the eyeliner is smudge-able with your fingertip!
One. NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer. Use your finger to apply this concealer to your under eye area or over any dark spots or blemishes. It blends beautifully with the skin, and a little goes a long way!
Two. Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream. I love applying any of the IT Cosmetics CC+ creams with my fingers. They are super hydrating and provide full coverage.
Three. Covergirl Exhibitionist Mascara. I’m loving the impact I get from just a few swipes of this drugstore mascara. It’s been a favorite for the last month or so!
Four. Stila Smudge Stick. An oldie but a goodie! I used Stila’s Smudge Sticks constantly and I’m not exactly sure why they’ve fallen out of the rotation! They can be smudged with your finger or a brush immediately after applying, then dry to a long-lasting finish that lasts all day.
Five. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment. My go-to for easy lip color. Petal and Rose are very easy to wear colors for spring and summertime.
Six. Nudestix Cream lip + cheek pencil. This is great for using on lips and cheeks. The shade Rebel is a beautiful bright pink that looks fantastic on cheeks too!
Seven. Nudestix Magnetic Luminous Eye Color. I love these eye crayons. They can be blended with your fingers and smudged a bit at the edges for a soft finish. Angel and Burnish are some of my favorite shades.
Eight. Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil. This is such an easy to use pencil. It doesn’t smudge away and the tip can be sharpened for a very precise line throughout your brows.
