My 5-Minute Makeup Routine

I’ll be honest with you: I’m not a huge makeup junkie. I was never one to watch YouTube tutorials, try out a million different lip shades or spend $100+ in Sephora (although I see how that’s very easy to do). No disrespect to everyone out there who proclaims themselves as a makeup enthusiast–if you can do a perfect cat eye, I have mad respect for you. IDK why, but growing up & now in my 20’s, I’m just not that into makeup.

All that being said, I do like to wear makeup & wear some almost every day (because I’m not Beyoncé and do not wake up flawless.) It makes me feel pretty and put together so I have a very simple (and quick!) routine that I do every morning. I figured I’d share it with you because it’s ideal for the mornings you’re running late for work/school or you want to go with a simpler weekday look. The best part is, this routine is less than 5 minutes (I actually timed it this morning) and most of the products I use are under $10. So for the days that you rather get a lil extra beauty sleep~ vs. put on your face, try this makeup routine instead.

Summer Style: Boho-Chic Dress

My sister and I rarely share clothes. It’s not that we can’t share clothes–we’re generally the same size/body shape–we just choose not to because we have radically different styles. While I’m more classic/preppy & could spend my whole paycheck at J. Crew, Krista’s wardrobe is primarily black and comprised of thrift shop items (she’s a crazy good thrifter). Every once in a while I’ll steal something edgier~ from her, but for the most part we stick to our own closets.

While it seems like we’re missing out on a significant sister-benefit of swapping clothes, I love it because it means I can feature totally different outfits here that aren’t like my style at all. I wrote a post a few weeks ago about my summer style (check it out here!), so here’s Krista’s take on a great summer dress for all of you who are into the boho-chic look.

In case ya missed it, two-piece dresses are super trendy~ right now. I absolutely love dresses in the summer. They’re easy, they’re effortless & they always look great.

It’s super comfy & a slight step up from casual–perfect for your next date or summer party. (And you’ll never guess where I got it!) Keep scrolling for more!
