"> MY 5-MINUTE FACE. | The Chic Confidential


K, who else has ZERO time in the morning for a full face of make up?
I mean, between getting (decently) dressed, making breakfast, stretching and ice rolling, who the heck has time for make up? I don’t. 
But, when you need to actually interact with people at your job, you kind of have to make an attempt to put on a little bit of make up. 
MINIMAL though…
I shot a little video outlining exactly what I do in the mornings for make up. It takes me 5 full minutes, it’s super easy and quick and perfect for those rushed mornings. (Which in my case is every morning).


AluimerMD Tinted Sunscreen: I always like to use a sunscreen as my base. This one is my absolutely favourite. If you guys don’t already know that, check out this blog post. It’s very light, and I love that it’s tinted. I don’t care for foundation, so this is actually quite perfect.
Maybelline Fit Me Powder: I like to even out my skin-tone with a little bit of powder. This just takes away any oils from the sunscreen, as it can be quite oily. I also LOVE this particular powder. It goes on very light, and it’s not too matte. You know I love my dewy skin!
Essence Satin Touch Blush: I’ll either use this, or some kind of bronzer. In the summer I get pretty tanned as it is, so I never really resort to a bronzer. I love a light shade of pink for my cheeks. It just adds a little something to the whole look. I’m not a contour person. Only if I’m shooting a blog post will I contour. (not this post though 😉
Rimmel London Eyebrow Kit: BROWSSSS ON FLEEK. I feel like if I was stranded in a forest, and was only allowed one thing from my make-up bag, it would be my eyebrow kit. (And my MAC eyebrow brush!) I absolutely love this little kit. I can’t go anywhere without my brows done. I legit feel…naked? Anyone else? This eyebrow kit comes with a cream and a powder. So, first you layer on the cream, and then add the brown powder to your brows. #fleekasSHIT
Essence Mascara: I don’t fuss with mascara too much. I’m in no way a brand snob when it comes to my lashes. Anything will do. This brand has a TON of different mascaras, and they’re all like 4 bucks. I’ve been using this brand for a while, and love it!
No eyeliner or eyeshadows, no foundation, no conturing. EASY PEASY, guys!!
This little routine takes me 5 minutes, and I swear 3 out of the 5 minutes is solely brows. #fuckenbrows. LOL

K, K, how was everyone’s weekend?
I hope it was as relaxing and fun as mine was. 
My parents celebrated 33 years of marriage on Saturday. YAY them! 33 years is a lifetime for some. I honestly don’t know how they did it. What’s the secret?! 
And on Sunday, one of my best friends got hitched. I love weddings. I love celebrating love. Especially when it’s one of my closest friends. (And when the bar is stocked with some real good cocktails). The bride wore black. SO CHIC. We danced, ate, and drank…a lot. 
I popped a few charcoal pills that night before drinking, (courtesy of the bride) and woke up with NO hangover. Holla! I feel like I need to do some research on this, because I’m feeling like this could be a good blog post? Thoughts? 
Anyway, overall it was a fantastic long weekend. What did you guys get up to? 
SIDE NOTE: Is anyone else dying that Prince Harry and Meagan Markle went to South Africa for her birthday?? If she comes back engaged, I’m going to cry. A tad dramatic, I know. Wtv. The inner me is squealing. 
Okay, I’m off.
Chat soon babes! Xx, kim

    You looks gorgeous in your every single photos. Your makeup is really good. Makeup is an important part of women's life. I can't Imagine a single day without Liquid Matte Lipstick and all of my makeups.
