Easy and Quick Makeup Routine

When life gets busy (okay, when is it not busy?) it is so helpful to have an easy makeup routine that you know and love. What is even better than having a trusted routine is when that routine also benefits your skin! Enter: Neutrogena® SkinClearing® makeup! I have absolutely been loving this line lately. But no surprise there, right? The skincare-loving girl loves the makeup line that has skincare built right into it? It was a match made in heaven! Today, I’m providing a little inspiration for a quick and easy makeup routine that will have you feeling like your most confident self with beautiful skin as you head into whatever this season might bring for you!

I have been talking a lot about new beginnings on the blog lately. New school years, new jobs, a new season – everything is in full-on change mode right now, which can be so exciting or so stressful, depending on who you ask. For me, it is a little bit of both. I love doses of change, but rapid, dramatic change like graduating from college and jumping into a career can be a lot! While I am certainly excited, it is overwhelming, as well. One of the best ways to combat this type of stress is to feel confident in yourself and embrace the change.

This season, I am working to give myself that extra bit of confidence with and without makeup on, and Neutrogena’s SkinClearing makeup absolutely helps with that! It looks gorgeous on and helps tackle blemishes, so when you take it off, your skin is looking fabulous too!

Time to jump into this easy, everyday routine!

Easy Makeup Routine

  1. Normal Skincare Routine
    • First, follow your normal skincare routine. If you are looking for some inspiration, I have lots of skincare ideas for you to explore here!
  2. Concealer
    • The next step is to use Neutrogena® SkinClearing® Blemish Concealer. This concealer is fantastic for providing natural-looking coverage that hides the blemishes away while also working to treat the blemishes with salicylic acid acne medicine. Like the rest of the SkinClearing line, it is non-comedogenic and oil-free so it won’t clog your pores.
      • NOTE: When you first put the concealer on, it might look a little too bronzed or dark. Don’t worry! It melts right into your skin and isn’t even noticeable within seconds.
      • NOTE: Also, since this is a blemish-clearing concealer packed with salicylic acid, DO NOT use it as an under-eye concealer! Use your normal concealer there and use this concealer on your blemishes. In my easy, everyday routine, I don’t even worry about under-eye concealing.
  3. Foundation
    • Next, let the Neutrogena® SkinClearing® Liquid Makeup go to work. This liquid foundation is so natural looking and extremely easy to blend! It uses a Micro-Clear technology with salicylic acid to break through oil and unclog pores, keeping your skin looking gorgeous with or without makeup!
      • NOTE: I definitely recommend using a sponge to easily and quickly blend the makeup. You can use the sponge dry or wet. If you have oily skin, I recommend using a dry sponge for a more matte look. Remember to always clean your sponge after use.
    • To really set my liquid foundation, I dust on a bit of the Neutrogena® SkinClearing® Mineral Powder. This powder gives you a gorgeous matte finish while also providing benefits to your skin like salicylic acid to prevent breakouts. It also works to absorb oils to keep your makeup looking constantly fresh.
  4. Eyes
    • The next step is a bit of simple eye makeup. I am obsessed with the Neutrogena® Nourishing Eyeliner. I am definitely a winged liquid eyeliner kind of girl, but that can take some time to apply. This amazing eyeliner is so rich and controllable that it practically looks like a liquid eyeliner, but is SO much easier to use. I gave myself a five-second winged look with minimal, minimal, minimal effort. Not sure if I am going to pick up the liquid eyeliner again after that! I finished my eye makeup with a couple swipes of mascara. Easy enough!
  5. Lips
    • Finally, I finished off this look with the most incredible drugstore lip product I’ve ever used: the Neutrogena® Moisturesmooth Colorstick. It is AMAZING! It glides on your lips flawlessly, feels like butter, and comes in a wide range of colors. I used Brown Berries and I couldn’t love it more! I will be wearing this gorgeous shade all fall and winter long! I cannot WAIT to go back and buy the rest of the colors. Plus, this lipstick nourishes and moisturizes your lips with fruit extracts including mango and shea butter, so it really doesn’t get much better than that!

Easy Everyday Makeup Look

I hope you loved this super easy makeup tutorial. This whole routine only takes me about five minutes and is so adjustable if you are looking to add a bit more. Throw some blush and bronzer on your cheeks and eyelids for an even more put-together look.

    1. Oh my goodness, same! Totally having flashbacks to when I first had NO CLUE how to put eyeliner on and I didn’t dare touch foundation. Now look at us, haha!
