BeautyTalk - Ready in 5 minutes with only 5 products!

I have to admit for the longest time I did not understand my friends' fascination with makeup. They could spend hours at Sephora while I miserably waited for them sitting on some uncomfortable ledge. Then one day, amidst my boredom, I decided to walk around one of Sephora's Manhattan locations while the friend I was visiting shopped. It all changed...I can still remember the feeling as I tried product after product and saw my appearance slightly improving with the help of said products. In the years since I still relish trying on different products. Yet, my goal is now to look as good as possible in as little time as possible.

Currently, I have nailed my daily routine down to 5 products which take less than 5 minutes to apply - moisturizer included!

And here are the five products:
  1. Wild Rose Face and Eye Serum from Korres. It is the perfect makeup primer, leaving skin dewy and refreshed, while working to repair and protect against aging.
  2. B.B. Cream SPF 27 PA++ from Boscia. This is my piece de resistance! It works to adjust to your skin color, making it perfect for year round as well as smoothing appearance nourishing your skin. Not to mention it has the required SPF protection we all need in our lives.
  3. Orgasm color Blush from Nars. There is a reason this blush is so popular! It adds just the right amount of color, glow and definition without looking unnatural.
  4. Aqua Smoky Lash Mascara from Make Up For Ever. This line specializes in waterproof makeup and their mascara is perfection for the long hot humid days of summer, it will not budge.
  5. Le Crayon Poudre brow pencil in Sable from Lancome. They says the eyes are the windows to our soul and what are eyes without the definition of our eyebrows. For those not blessed with the likes of Camilla Belle's brows we can always help our natural look by filling them in with powder pencil.
 Bonus - I am currently obsessed with Omega-3 which you can get from fish oil pills for attaining that dewy skin complexion which we see on celebrities and models in advertisements. Pay attention to the Omega-3 mg content in the pills you get (the higher the better). Also, stay away from any containing Omega-6 as that is the oil which we do not want! Omega-6 is essentially the bad fat which we get from our daily food anyway. I recommend at Nature's Bounty they have countless of Omega-3 strong odorless options. Strongly recommend and so do my sisters and friends as I have gotten them hooked!
