Amanda Miller has done it again. Here is a video of her five minutes, or less, makeup routine. This is what Amanda calls her mom makeup but you don’t need to be a mom to wear this look. It is Amanda’s go-to routine when she wants to polished but does not want (or have the time) to apply a lot of makeup.
Amanda explains that she keeps all the essential products for this everyday look in one bag so that she can quickly grab exactly what she needs without wasting time looking through her kit for the products she needs.
Here are the Motives Cosmetics products necessary to complete this routine at home.
Foundation: Motives Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation: This is a great 3-in-1 product. It contains SPF, foundation, and it dries to a powder. It gives your skin a super velvety finish. It is also build-able in case you need to cover imperfections. Apply a dime-sized amount to the center of yuor face and blend outward toward your hairline and jawline. Blend all the way down your neck.
Concealer/Foundation: Motives Color Perfection Quad: It has the consistency of a foundation, but the coverage of a concealer. Apply the lightest color from the quad underneath your eyes to add light and give a more awake appearance. Apply the medium color to hide any pigmentation or scars. Be sure to blend really well.
Bronzer: Motives Pressed Bronzer in Miami Glow to give a little bit more glow and definition. This will give a JLO glow to your skin. Apply Miami Glow to your cheek bones, nose, chin, jawline, and sides of forehead. You may also apply it to your neck and chest.
- Apply Miami Glow Bronzer to your crease of your eyes using a windshield-washer motion, starting from the outside edge and working forward.
- Use Motives Waterproof Eye Pencil in Black Magic to line just the outer edge of your eyes. Use a smudger brush to smudge the line out a bit.
- Add a few coats of Motives for La La Mineral Volumizing & Lengthening Mascara in Black
- Curl your lashes with your fingers
Lips: Add you favorite Motives for La La Mineral Lip Shine and you are ready to face the day.
