This is What I Use for My 5-Minute Everyday Makeup Look

I have always wanted to do a makeup video tutorial, but being closer to an amateur than a pro, I was like “nahhh, I’ll let someone else do it.” But last Saturday it was 18 degrees and for some reason the cold snapped me right out of my comfort zone. That and a case of extreme boredom / fear of the windchill outside.

I have about the same amount of makeup as I do shoes. A lot. But I almost always keep things on the more natural side. I like bronze and brown eyeshadows, peachy or rosy blushes, and clear to soft pink glosses. I have no idea what I’m doing with eyeliner and don’t think I should ever attempt contouring. I keep it simple for the most part. Unless I’m going out or have an event, a natural, everyday look is where it’s at. 5 minutes and done.

So here’s a little tutorial on how I achieve a basic look and keep myself from frightening small children. 😉

Bloopers and all, let’s do this.

    I’m a little jealous that you don’t have to use an eyelash curler like I do. If I don’t curl my eyelashes they stick straight out from my eyes and you can’t tell I even have eyelashes. But if I curl them…..Hot. I think you need to do one for a going out look. Super cute video!

  • Nikki Prsa

    You look beautiful! Way to be brave and I heard there’s a winter storm coming…I would love to see a hair tutorial from you too! *Off to order that mascara*

    • great idea! enjoy the fancy lashes!

  • Anthony John Mastracci

    You made this look so easy! I’ll keep this in mind for the next time I need to do my make up 🙂

  • Teri

  • Jenna at Boston Chic Party

    You are gorgeous, babe! And I seriously admire you for this video- amazing!
    xoxo, Jenna

    • aww you’re to sweet! would love to hang soon! <3 did i already ask if you were going to the Well Summit on Saturday?

  • Pamela

    I would love to try some of these products now! What shade do you use in the dew skin? It’s always hard to know what shade to buy, but I am also fair. I agree with the comment that you should do a hair tutorial! I have the hardest time styling my shorter hair. Have a great day!

    • I love that yours is already on the way!! <3

      • Pamela

        Yes! Super fast shipping. I can’t wait! Thanks for recommendation. 🙂 Does that MAC mascara clump? I find that I love certain mascara but then get so frustrated if it becomes clumpy!

  • Biana Perez

    Nicely done gorgeous!! I am always in love with how you do your eye makeup and your gorgeous lashes!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    • Thank my love — we should have a makeup party soon. 🙂

  • Oh my goodness, you use so many products – lol! I am so stupid when it comes to this stuff, I use a cleanser and a moisturizer – bam. LOL! You are a stunner though so clearly all of this works for you!

    • Hahha no, only 5! That’s very few for makeup!

  • Fresh faced and beautiful! Props to you for filming the video too! 🙂 I need some new make-up!

    • Thanks girl!! Shoot me an email if you have ANY questions about the products I used. I love makeup talk! christina orso @ gmail : )

  • Fabulous look Christina! Good for you making a video too, hugs. , Terri.

  • Sandy Bonesteel

    You seriously are very pretty without makeup. Your complexion looks naturally beautiful. Thank you for showing that blush. At first it did look like it was going to be too dark; but it wasn’t after you blended it. I love the idea of a blush in a tube.
