Two Minute Makeup Routine For Busy Mornings

I spend less than two minutes a day on my makeup and still look put together. Here's how!


In the past month or so, I've had so many women reach out via Instagram Stories on my makeup, asking me what I use and what I do, as they're interested in more natural products and an easy makeup routine. First, this is so flattering (thank you!) and second, I honest to Pete only wear about four products and my makeup routine is less than two minutes. The key is great skincare! If you've got that, making yourself look "pretty" in the morning is a breeze. I'm going to talk about all of it in this post so you can do just as I do, if you'd like, and completely overhaul and simplify your life. It's SO worth it and so freeing (and yes, you can still wear that lipstick!) *This post contains affiliate links*



Let's start at the beginning, shall we - your skincare. I love simple, nontoxic and extremely high quality products. I use the ART skincare line from Young Living (if you read this post, you know I don't use their oils anymore because I found a better oil company, but I do still use their skincare. I'm linking my new oil company's oils, and if you want to try them to see the difference, use code Paige10 for 10% off your first order!) I use the face wash, toner and heavy moisturizer year round. In addition, I add a drop of frankincense essential oil to the moisturizer at night and a drop of geranium essential oil to it in the morning. Those two oils are GREAT for skin! Frankincense is great for anti-aging and moisturizing and geranium is great for "plumping" and really making my skin have a pretty glow. It's honestly the ART skincare line and the oils that lay out a great foundation for me to have a super simple makeup routine. Pretty skin makes your job easier!

But I didn't always have pretty skin. In fact, I've suffered from acne most of my life. I wrote this post on a DIY face wash I you can make and this post on a DIY toner, both of which cleared my skin right up. Yes, there's before and after photos in the post, and if you watch my stories, you can see my "after" skin all the time, because I wear NO concealer and NO foundation! Now I no longer need acne skin products, and really love the ART line from Young Living. The smell is fantastic, my skin feels soft, and hey - I'm almost 35 and don't have crows feet and barely any wrinkles. Yes, that's genetics (if you have acne prone skin, bonus! Your oily skin isn't as likely to wrinkle. God thew us a bone like that) but it's also that I don't use excessive products on my skin. Did you know the chemicals in most American brand products actually AGE your skin? They're so harsh, they're aging you. Even though they're marketed to you as "anti-aging." If you want real anti-aging power, ditch the product lines, simplify, use a few oils on your skin, and wear suns screen & hats. That's the best anti-aging regimen you're going to get!

Ok, so you got your skincare down. Do it in the morning and the evening, without fail, every day. How about that two minute makeup routine that I get so many compliments on?


Here are the products I use daily:
- L'Oreal Paris Volumous black mascara (I dare you to find a better one, at any price point. It doesn't exist!)
- Bare Minerals blush  or Savvy Minerals from Young Living 
- Babo Botanicals lip gloss (honestly the best lip gloss I've ever tried, ever. Vegan and cruelty free!)

On days that I know I'm going to be out in the sun, I also put this on. Seriously, the best brand! I buy their mineral sunscreen for the kids too, and it's my absolute favorite.

Take the eye pencil and run it in the inner corners of your eye. Apply the blush on your cheekbones. Use the mascara wand to slowly apply mascara to your eyelashes, slowly wiggling the brush back and forth as you pull it through your lashes. Slap some lip gloss on and boom - that's what I do nearly every day! If I'm feeling extra fancy, I'll add some eyeliner. No crazy cat eye or application techniques - just a thin line of dark brown or black on my upper lid.


That's all I do! That's the person you see in IG Stories. I think it's just enough to look like a decent human and feel good about myself, but I don't waste any time "getting ready" in the morning. Frankly, I just don't have the time to give to put a whole face of makeup on. Not to mention all the crap in the products sold in the U.S. and what they do to your skin... I'm not interested in that! A legitimate two minute routine with mostly natural products (I'm looking to replace the eye pencil so if you have any recommendations, let me know!) is how I roll these days.
