I am a bEAUTY jUNKIE & pROUD.
So you’ve secured your dick appointment and it’s time to get a little cute. Your local beauty junkie is here to help you look glowy and feel like a natural sex goddess.
If you enjoy being au naturel in the sheets that’s no problem! I am habitually late and live in the South so this routine is not only quick but can stand some heat. I’ve tested this and even when I’m not rushing it only takes me about 15 minutes to look like a snack.
Hopefully, you’ve already done your skincare routine because no makeup look can thrive on unloved skin. Once you’re cleansed and moisturized, we can get to the fun stuff.
Step One: Prime- I don’t care what anyone says: priming is necessary. Primers have so many functions for dry to oily skin and in this scenario we are trying to achieve the smooth skin look so a pore-filling one is the go to. The Touch In Sol No Poreblem Primer is one of my favorites because it’s lightweight, long lasting and blurring. The more each product can do the less products you have to wear. It’s science.
Step Two: Glow- We want to look like we’re glowing from the inside and only drink lemon infused water and a great trick to doing that is to put an illuminating product under rest of our products. The L’Oreal True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer is a great drugstore option that is light and hydrating. Fun fact for my oily skinned peeps: moisturizing and hydrating aren’t always the enemy and can actually help prolong your makeup. Sometimes our skin is parched and over produces oil in order to compensate so experiment with different products.
Step Three: Brows- Brows frame your gorgeous face but they can also clock out early if you use the wrong product. Benefit has some of my holy grail status brow products. The Precisely, My Brow Pencil and Ready, Set, Brow combination is golden. I have fallen asleep on my face and my brows were still perfect. I could cry just thinking about it. Honestly, a good brow can get you through most situations.
Step Four: Conceal-Foundation is way too expensive to either sweat off or end up on a pillow (if you’re doing it right). Concealer is the way to go in these situations. I use my skin tone shade for spot concealing and a light amount of my highlighting shade under my eyes and whatever is left over on my sponge to hit my forehead and chin. It’s important to balance your face if you’re going to highlight. The Tarte Shape Tape concealer gets nice and matte which is a plus if you choose not to set it. One of my favorite alternatives is a classic: the L.A. Girl HD Pro Concealer. It’s not a matte formula for anyone with drier skin and less than $10.
Step Five: Powder Foundation- If you have extra clear skin you can probably skip this step or use translucent setting powder to give you that velvety skin look. For those of us who need a tiny bit more without doing too much, the bareMinerals barePRO Powder Foundation adds a little bit more color to my face while not feeling cakey. With a shade range of 30, you have a pretty good chance of finding yours. It comes in a nice little compact if you want to touch up afterwards.
Step Six: Blush- Blush has become one of my favorite steps of makeup and I feel like it doesn’t get enough love. It really gives off that JBF look before you even get to foreplay. I like to multitask so the Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach blush is a glowy blush that I place on my cheeks, nose, and chin. The sublte sheen makes highlighter totally unnecessary. Bonus: it smells delicious.
Step Seven: Setting Spray- My name is Dominique and I’m a setting spray addict. I have around 20 setting sprays with various finishes and functions but the Morphe Continuous Setting Mist gets me together everytime. On top of melting the products into my skin (crucial for a natural look) it’s just fun to use a micro-mist setting spray. It’s really quick and you don’t have to wait for it to dry in case you’re in a rush.
Step Eight: Mascara & Eyeliner-This step is up to your own preference since waterproof mascara would be ideal but it’s not the easiest to take off and regular mascara can get messy. BUT IT’S SO NICE! The Essence Lash Princess False Lash Mascara gives me life and longer thicker lashes, the perfect recipe for looking like a sex kitten. For that extra oomph, the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Perversion on your waterline is the perfect finishing touch.
Step Nine: Lip Gloss- (We’re Ready to GO!) I have kissed a few people in my life and they haven’t always been a big fan of lip stick and certain lip glosses. We can’t judge people for their lack of taste. Speaking of taste, the Too Faced Sweet Peach Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss tastes great! You get color and shine on your lips that makes them look kissable and no complaints because there's no sticky texture. You actually get even more kisses because they’ll be sweet.
So that’s it! You're ready to get out the door to dick appointments or anywhere else you need to be glowy and effortless. The best part is that you can get all of these products at Ulta(yay!). What’s your routine when you get that ‘you up?’ text and need to get cute in a rush?
