Quick Daily Makeup

I shared my 15 minute make up routine on Instagram stories and I just wanted to link everything here.

Tinted moisturizer below, no brush or sponge needed. I LOVE this and will never go back to foundation. The color adapts to your skin color.

Nars (light 2) or NYX concealer (CW01) for under my eyes, down my nose, any spots I have- just apply with your ring finger. Then I put the Elf powder (light color) under my eyes to set it- again using my ring finger.

NYX powder in Nude for anywhere I feel shiny. I also love the Laura Mercier translucent powder but it is pricey so I use it sparingly. I use a large brush with the loose powder.

Makeup Forever bronzer (I use the one without shimmer) for contouring- I use these three brushes, (large one is for neck and chest).

MAC blush in Melba for my cheeks with the brush I use.

Highlighter palette for the cheek bones and corner of my eyes- it's the Rose Glow color. I use the angled brush for cheeks with the middle color and other brush for eyes with the light color.

I comb my eyebrows then apply my eye brown pencil (in taupe).

I then use a white eye liner on my water line and the highlighter pencil under my eyebrows to wake my eyes up. I also add this to the corners of my eyes.

I use either of these setting sprays below. I use the NYX for everyday and the Urban Decay if I need my makeup to last longer.

Lastly, I use the MAC eyelash curler (which is the best, I've tried a million) and the most wonderful mascara ever in blackest black!

Sephora is having a sale-15% off for VIB and 20% off for Rouge just use code SUMMERSAVE. Also, at Target if you spend $40 on beauty, you can use the code FREEBOX for a beauty box. If you order through Elf and spend $25 you get free shipping and a free gift! Lastly, Ulta has a $3.50 off $15 coupon or if you spend $70 they have a HUGE gift bag. I guess this is the weekend for online beauty shopping!!

My Latest Diet Additions

I've tried a whole lot of supplements over the years and I have a select few that I use daily- fish oil, probiotic, vitamin c, b complex, multivitamin, and calcium. But over the past few months I decided to add two other items to my routine that I wanted to share with y'all because they're so good! I also try to always eat a good amount of protein and I found two different meals that are protein packed, taste good, quick, and don't bother my stomach!

1- Collagen Powder. I had read a little bit about this and I was intrigued but I had to try it for myself first! Collagen powder is supposed to help with wrinkles, dryness, and joint pain. I've used this for over a month and I LOVE IT. I can't attest to the joint pain because we just got a new bed, I'm running more, too many factors here. But I can attest to it improving my dry skin! My hands are the worst when it comes to dry skin and the week between orders where I wasn't using this, I immediately watched my hands become dry again. I haven't changed my lotion routine, just added this. Also, when my skin is more hydrated I notice any wrinkles I have, do improve. I'm linking the one I use below. It's cheapest on Amazon but I've also seen it at Walgreens and Vitamin Shoppe. I add it to my coffee daily and I can't taste it at all. I did a lot of research before I found the best one for the best price.

2- Apple Cider Vinegar. I've used this on and off through the years but I finally decided to consistently incorporate it into my diet for a few months and now I can't live without it. It has a ton of benefits but the one I can attest to is the gut health benefit. I just dilute a shot size amount of it with water every other night and it has completely changed my stomach. You do have to be careful with this stuff because it can give you a stomach ache but if used correctly, it helps all stomach ailments. I've linked one below but you can use any Apple Cider Vinegar. It's also good for a lot of home remedies like catching gnats, household cleaners, you can find a fun article with many uses here. It's like the holy grail of household items.

As for the two protein packed meals, I am loving the Kodiak Cakes Waffles and the Quest Nutrition Pizza. They are both so yummy and the macros are awesome. Serving sizes are two slices of pizza or two waffles. I also like that they're easy meals to make if you're in a hurry. Most of the time quick meals lack protein and are high in carbs, but not these two meals!

I hope you enjoy this health fueled #motivationmonday and these items help you. As always, I wouldn't share anything I didn't try out first! Enjoy.
