It’s summer and humid, who really wants to be wearing full coverage foundation on 90 degree days with 80% humidity? I assure you, I don’t! But asides for that, on the days I have to head into the office, I wake up at inhuman hours. And have 20 minutes to look good enough to not scare my co-workers.
And even a step further than that, there are some among us that do not like makeup. As much as it pains me to type that, it’s the honest truth. Yet, there are days you need to be presentable and need easy to apply. Because who really wants to have a PHD on makeup application, you know besides me of course. Some of us can’t live that life.
This is where Nudestix Nudies Tinted Blur comes in. If the name doesn’t give it away, they are foundation sticks. They are super easy and fast to apply. So fast, I did it with my fingers to show you. No fancy brushes, primer, nor color correcting were used. Of course, you should ALWAYS moisturize.
It comes in 10 shades and they promise your skin will look and feel like your skin, but better.
The shades I used:
STEP ONE. Spread across your face.
STEP TWO. Blend with your fingers.
STEP THREE. Look super cute!
It really is comfortable on my skin and I normally don’t do mineral anything since I have really oily skin.
These are great when you travel, and for a quick touch up. Even a 10 minute makeup application.
For the rest of the face, I used:
- Eyes: Nothing. Kept it simple.
- Lashes: Nothing just had them curled. More on this to come!
- Brows: Soft Brown – COVERGIRL Easy Breezy Micro-Fine Fill + Define Eyebrow Pencil
- Highlight: Precious Petal – Wet n Wild Megaglo
- Blush: Hush Blush – Pretty Vulgar Make Them Blush
So you see, you do not need an hour to look put your face on. Nor do you need much to spice it up. What do we think?
Oh this is a picture I took in the subway on my way to work. It was particularly sunny that day so no filter was needed!
Remember makeup is a choice not a necessity. Just because it’s my thing, doesn’t mean it HAS to be yours. You are beautiful just as you are!
