When Time is of the EssenceI wanted to do a post on my on-the-go makeup picks but realized it’d be interesting to show a side-by-side comparison of what I would also pick if I had the luxury of time. Obviously, I can’t do a 30-second face! I can’t even rummage through my unorganized, cluttered makeup bag for the only mascara I have in 30 seconds. But you guys get the point of having the freedom of having a full 30 minutes to do makeup as opposed to feeling as if you’ve only “30 seconds” to spare!
EyebrowsI am close to declaring the MAC Fluidline in Dirty Blonde my HG eyebrow product if only it weren’t limited edition and thus, unavailable anywhere else now. I use the MAC 208 brush together with this for HD-looking browzah. However, scrambling to find the 208 brush when I use this could have already given me time to tightline or double curl my lashes. The NARS Brow Perfector pencil and Majolica Majorca Brow Customize (sword-cut version) pencil are my go-tos for on-the-go brows. The NARS pencil is stiff, waxy and good for filling in brows using upward dash strokes rather than drawing a smooth line. They aren’t pigmented so it’s hard to go overboard. The Majolica Majorca pencil is more pigmented and can be used to draw in a fluid manner but manages to still stay natural-looking. What I like about Majolica is the other end of the pencil includes a spoolie for easy brow grooming/combing.
Contour & HighlightWhen I’m in a hurry, I just use a tinted moisturizer or a BB cream (as pictured in the cover photo) but don’t skip on warming up and/or highlighting my face just because. So far, my favorite duo is NARS Laguna and Burberry Nude Radiance. Again, scrambling for two separate products, opening and closing each one isn’t at all time-friendly. That is what I like most about the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (which is back in stock now!!!!! Grab yours here!) — it makes the whole face definition process easy-peasy. If there’s one thing I’m amazed I can do in just 30 seconds, it would be being able to finish, warm up/bronze and highlight in a snap. I can’t recommend this palette more. It’s been a lazy day staple!
BlushI have powder blushes that are relatively easy to apply but having to look for a blush brush to use with it is the time-killer. That’s where my cream blushes come in handy! They can be blended easily and effortlessly without having to worry about patchy application and other such issues. Pictured above are NARS Powder Blush in Gina and Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Fresh Melon.
EyelashesI haven’t found the ONE mascara for me yet and I’ve only been getting used to wearing mascara on a regular basis recently — because I finally found a way to hold the curls. However, I tend to skip on mascara when pressed for time because I can’t deal with smudges or smears – I’d need another set of 30 seconds to clean those up. What I never skip on though is curling the lashes. I’ve been using a Koji eyelash curler that curls my lashes better than my well-loved Shu Uemura. However, it has a slight learning curve because if not properly positioned in its strategic curling point, it can easily pinch some delicate skin. The first few times some pinches occurred, I almost threw the curler away (even though it’s not a cheap curler k!). But finally learning the proper way to use it has majorly helped in curling these sparse Asian lashes, making them look longer than they are.
EyesLiquid eyeliner.. where do I even begin? Doesn’t matter if I have 30 minutes or 2 hours, I’m bound to mess it up. So this is definitely one big NO when I’m on-the-go (busting out my poetic skillz there). And while I’m apprehensive with pencil liners transferring and leaving you racoon-eyed, I found that they’re the easiest and most fool-proof product in terms of lining the eyes. I love gel liners but THE BRUSH. Products above are the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof liquid eyeliner and the Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes pencil eyeliner.
PowderFinally, when I have the luxury of time, I always make sure to finish up with a loose powder. So it’s foundation + loose powder + finishing powder. As a quicker, less fussy alternative – I prefer to use a high-definition mineral foundation in its pressed version which is the Ellana Minerals Pressed Mineral Foundation in Chai Tea Latte. No mess to worry about cleaning up after! And that concludes this edition of my on-the-go makeup picks! I have a few more comparisons but
