Five Minute Makeup Routine

I shared my everyday makeup routine on IGTV this morning (you can follow me here @carlyritt_) and thought I’d put together a quick post on the blog to link to the products. I also realize it was six minutes on the video, but I can crank this out in five minutes before work so I’m rolling with it officially taking five minutes.

  1. I’m currently switching between the Laura Mercier (Nude) and Beauty Counter (No. 2) tinted moisturizers. The Beauty Counter leaves a bit more of a dewy glow (hence the name) so I’m still getting used to that, but I really like both.
  2. In the summer, I’ll also put on Supergoop unseen sunscreen for extra protection. While a bit pricier for sunscreen, it’s super light and goes on extremely well.
  3. Laura Mercier concealer over red spots and around my eyebrows.
  4. Color in eyebrows. I use an angled brush with a darker brown from this palette.
  5. Chanel powder. I brush this all over (who knows if I’m supposed to) but I like the glow and hopefully it sets the tinted moisturizer.
  6. Laura Mercier bronzer (okay so they actually call this a powder – I’m wearing shade Bronze 01). In the winter I’ll use this all over, but I’ve been starting to put it just below my cheek bones and lightly brushing my forehead and neck.
  7. Bobbie Brown blush in Nectar.
  8. Laura Mercier eye shadow (similar). This is the stick I was referring to on the video. You could also use something from this palette.
  9. Lancome eye liner & mascara.
  10. One more round of Laura Mercier concealer under the eyes. I forgot to mention it, but I switch between Laura Mercier and Trisha Mcevoy instant eye lift.

And while I forgot to talk about lip products, I switch off between this tinted lip treatment , this balm and this gloss. I’ve tried to become a lipstick person, but whenever I wear it, I’m just worried about if I have it on my teeth, and they all seemed to dry out my lips.

  • Ainsley got to come to work with me in June for a really fun photoshoot, and in celebration of her birthday week (😉), she’s in the latest Kohler mailer that’s being distributed this week! Swipe to see some of my other favorites and shoutout to my sister who jumped up and down and made crazy noises the entire time. 📷 by the talented team at @kohler
  • I burnt my fingers while making every single party hat tonight (okay that was dramatic because I only made these four), and they fall off the animals’ heads the second you touch them but I don’t care because I love them. My mom was so crafty and would’ve totally been over helping me make these, but I like the think she was shaking her head and laughing while watching me attempt to use a hot glue gun after so long and swearing along the way.
  • Spending the day prepping for Ainsley’s birthday party next week, and by prepping I really mean cleaning. I’m trying to keep this as low key as possible and not cause unnecessary stress. Here’s the three day review of the chairs that you seemed to love when I posted them on my stories. The short answer? We are really happy with them! They’re super comfortable, and we love the stripes. They didn’t have a swatch available for this color (Cruise Adrift) so I was just holding my breath that they would look okay when they got here. One of the reviews talks about how the pillows are filled with green stuffing, and that’s true. I’m thinking I’ll buy pillow inserts to replace whatever that is. I’m 5’2” and Bill is 6’, and they’re approved for both heights. Bill says they’re still not the recliner he’s been asking for, but they will definitely do 😉 I thought I wouldn’t want the swivel feature for this room, but we’ve been spinning around with Ainsley and side rocking back and forth while reading. I’m so, so happy they arrived early! http://liketk.it/2EKhZ #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome
