10 Minute Basic Face


If you’re short on time and need to get out the door looking like you made an effort, but still presentable and fresh, this tutorial is for you.
It’s also a great look if you forget your eye makeup brushes on a trip because you apply the eye color with fingers!
I use a drugstore BB cream in this tutorial so for those of you curious about what type of coverage those offer, you may find this helpful. I will do a dedicated BB cream post in the future.
I hope that busy moms, young professionals, and makeup newbies find this helpful! I will do a 5 minute face in the future as well because some mornings the bed is just too cozy 🙂

I filmed this tutorial with a new camera so I hope that you enjoy the new look. It has definitely taken some in-depth explanation from my husband and brother to learn, but I look forward to creating more photos and videos for you guys! 🙂

    Very nice video, definitely helpful to me. Since I don’t use foundation and powder because it just never looked smooth and natural, but I may change my mind and try it again because you made it look so easy and the finished look is SO pretty, and I love the eye and lip color. I love that you share what product you use! Thanks Ivy!!
