My Lazy Girl Makeup Must-Haves

One fun fact about me is I am super behind when it comes to beauty. I didn't really start paying attention to makeup until recently because as I get older I start to see changes in my face, some good and some a little different. For example, as I age I notice I'm starting to get freckles, which I'm super excited about because my grandma has them (the same Edie this blog is named for) and I was always envious of them growing up but then there are other things like dark circles under my eyes that weren't there before, so that's no fun.

But another fun fact about me is I'm lazy! I am not the girl who is going to wake up an hour earlier to put her "face" on, never have and never will. I want to spend about 10 minutes max on my makeup and I don't want to look too made up. At this point in my life I enjoy my face and want to look like me so it needs to look natural but a little enhanced like the flower or star crown snapchat filter. LOL!

If you're like me and don't want to spend too much time putting on your makeup but still want a few a basics -- check out my lazy girl beauty must-haves:

The Bases:

Nars Tinted Moisturizer: What can I say? This is a God send, it provides smooth coverage along with protecting your skin against the elements with a SPF 30. It's also really light so if you have oily skin like me it doesn't feel too heavy or like its going to melt off.

Mac Concealer: This is super simple for quick fixes, I love applying this to small blemishes, acne scarring or dark circles.


Nars The Multiple: I LOVE this! It's super easy to use and you can use it for everything from blush, lipstick and/or eyeshadow. I have it in South Beach and against my skin tone it gives me a bronzy glow so I tend to use it as a highlighter.

Bobbi Brown Rouge Pot: This is another multi-use must-have. I recently got this and have no regrets, you can apply it to both your cheeks and lips for a rosy look.

Nars Dual Intensity Blushes: These are great for when you're on-the-go.


You could stop here and have a natural look but take that extra couple minutes and finish off the looks with these favorites.

CoverGirl So Lashy Mascara: It gives your lashes that extra curl and volume. If you want to take it a little further try Maybelline's Master Kajal eyeliner.

Dolce & Gabbana Eyeshadows: I love the Perfect Mono in Pure Bronze its great to use along with my Nars multiple for a warm glow. I also love Cocoa eyeshadow all four shades are perfect to take from day to night.

All of these products are so easy and you can mix and match for an overall gorgeous look. Another fun thing about them is they are all portable. Grab your Mac Concealer and Nars Multiple and head out the door or maybe just your Bobbi Brown Rouge Pot for touch ups. Easy 5-10 minute tricks that keep you moving without any stress.

Do you have any easy makeup tricks? Let me know in the comments below I would love to hear about them.
