My 10 Minute Makeup Routine

Hello pals, readers, and people who have stumbled on this blog. I am sharing my favorite beauty products with you today and how I use them! Beauty products are the only things I don’t skimp on because I have sensitive skin, but there are hundreds of blog posts on duplicates for the products I use. 

Step 1. Hydrate and take care of your skin

I use rose water from Onurth located in New York. This rose water works wonders! It clears your face and hydrates it. According to their website, which you can find here, you can hydrate thirsty skin with a soothing mist of Onurth’s sought after rose water. From the finest Bulgarian roses comes this replenishing hydrolat with natural humectant qualities to add and retain moisture to tired skin. Use after cleansing and throughout the day to refresh and rehydrate your complexion. A must have for drier skin types and frequent

travelers (bring your 2 ounce bottle on the plane). This is what rose is supposed to smell like – Use in place of a toner or as a gentle cleanser with Onurth’s Eco Squares. Rose has an affinity with the heart; promoting balance, aiding in emotional processing and supports in decision making. 


  • Ingredients: Pure Floral Hydrosol from Organically-Grown Bulgarian Roses.
  • Origin: Bulgaria
  • Shelf Life: Three to Six Months

It is my fav beauty product. Check it out!

Step 2. Foundation
I like to use Too Faced Born this Way foundation in the color Snow, because I’m really pale! It has been the only foundation that covers my skin and stays on all day, but it is expensive. At $39 for 1 oz, I think it is worth every penny because it doesn’t break my face out (I have very sensitive skin). You can find it at Sephora, Ulta, Glambot or on the Too Faced website. According to Too Faced description: Skin so naturally radiant they’ll think you were born this way.
Born This Way is an oil-free foundation that masterfully diffuses the line between makeup

and skin. For coverage so undetectable, you can’t see the makeup and you can’t see imperfections – all that’s left is naturally radiant skin that looks like you were Born This Way.This revolutionary foundation is infused with a potent combination of coconut water to naturally replenish moisture levels; nature’s resilient alpine rose to brighten the skin’s appearance and promote elasticity and hyaluronic acid for a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Skin-loving perfection:

  • Medium-to-full, undetectable coverage
  • Oil-free
  • Coconut water helps delicately replenish skin’s moisture levels without over hydrating
  • Infused with the resilient alpine rose to brighten the skin’s appearance and promote elasticity
  • Hyaluronic acid provides long-lasting, skin-balancing hydration for a smoother, more youthful appearance

poppies are my fav flower! 😉 You can find their lipstick at Sephora, Ulta, Glambot or Tarte’s websiteThe lipstick makes your lips tingle a bit and it feels amazing! According to Tarte’s website: Inspired by the whimsical colors of the Amazon and infused with naturally-derived ingredients from its lush vegetation, these Amazonian butter lipsticks add a splash of rich color and creamy shine for a perfect pout.



Step 4. Cheek Stain

Benefit makes THE BEST cheek stain! It lasts all day and according to th

em it’s “snuggle and kiss proof.” They have it in three colors and I’m planning on making my second purchase. Posietint is poppy-tinted too ;). You can find it at Sephora, Ulta, Glambot and Benefit’s website. The product description, taken from Benefit’s website, is:


This poppy-pink tinted stain brightens cheeks & lips with a cheery flush. The liquid-gel formula beautifully blends on all complexions and lasts for hours.

  • Smooch-proof
  • Nuzzle-proof

Step 5. Mascara

I like to use drug store brands, but my current mascara crush is Better than Sex mascara by Too Faced! It holds a curl well and lengthens eyelashes! Best mascara I’ve ever used. You can find it at Sephora, Ulta, Glambot,and the Too Faced website. I like to buy the mini because it’s cheaper, but you do you! The product description taken from the Too Faced website: 

What it is:

better than sex

An intensely black, volumizing mascara with an hourglass-shaped brush that separates, coats, and curls each lash to voluptuous perfection.

What it does:
Inspired by the curves of a woman’s body, the hourglass-shaped brush was designed with extra stiff bristles to maximize the performance of this carbon black, collagen-fueled formula. One coat and lashes are full and defined. Two coats and lashes are even more luscious, curled, and dramatic. Three coats help you achieve the most intense, black, multidimensional lashes possible.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens

What else you need to know:
Better Than Sex mascara contains a film-forming polymer for smudge-proof, all day wear and unique peptides for the deepest, intense black possible.


And that’s it! It takes less than ten minutes to apply these products and you’ll have a fresh, natural look.
