I may be venturing out and about a bit more than I have over the past 18+ months, but my day-to-day makeup hasn’t really changed all that much. I still focus on the basics and all in all, it takes me about five minutes to do my look every morning.
But I have some new additions to that routine, that are helping to make my morning makeup routine even easier – and even more enjoyable…
Let me tell you about Merit Beauty! Also, as a side note, the Merit team was kind enough to send me products back in February to try and I posted about them here. This is not a sponsored post, though hiiii Merit, let’s chat! 😉
Considering I’ve already ordered several more of their products, it’s safe to say I’ve become quite the fan, quite quickly.
What I love about Merit is the simplicity, minimalist, and chic style, of each product. Merit’s products have become essentials to my morning makeup routine making it more streamlined than ever.
My 5-Minute Makeup Routine
Step 01. Last year, I was eager to finish my Beautycounter Tint Skin so I could try out the ILIA Skin Tint. Let’s just say, I tried it out and it’s not going anywhere. Every morning’s makeup routine begins with my trusted ILIA Skin Tint.
Step 02. Then I use the Merit Skin Perfecting Complexion Stick – I use it more like concealer. It’s so lightweight with nice coverage, it’s a must have!
Step 04. Then, I use the Merit Day Glow Highlighting Balm. It’s the perfect product to add a little extra glow!
Step 06. My eyebrows get a bit of my trusted Anastasia Eyebrow Pencil and on top I use the Merit Brow 1980 Volumizing Pomade. With a little tint and an all day hold, it’s an essential in the morning makeup routine.
Step 07. I finish my look off with a little ILIA Nightlite Bronzing Powder.
Step 08. For everyday, I usually just apply lip balm, but if I’m doing something fun that day, I will wear one of Merit’s Shade Slick Tinted Lip Oils.
Anyone else obsessed with Merit Beauty as well? I’d love to hear! I always love chatting with fellow skincare/beauty enthusiasts!
