I know, a makeup tutorial? Hold on to your hats, because you’re going to be seeing more of these. Simple makeup tutorials that you can recreate without spending an hour or breaking the bank…..we all want those right? Today’s five minute face tutorial is easy as pie, and I’ve got some info about how you can buy ALL these products and get cash back. Yup, no joke.
Since Lydia was born, my priorities have shifted. Top goals these days? Spend less time primping and spend less money on beauty products. Enter Splender. When I decided to put this five minute face tutorial together, I knew that I wanted to buy quality products. I also knew that my husband would kill me when he saw how much they cost. Thank goodness for my new favorite save some cash trick. Splender is an amazing website that gives shoppers up to 40% cash back on their online purchases from over 800 stores. Sephora? Yup! Nordstrom? Yup! J.Crew? Yup! I mean, seriously….don’t shop online without going through this site. You’d be throwing money away! The best part? You can still use promo codes and shop each store’s sales. So you’re stacking savings!
When I was approached about testing out Splender…..I did a little recon before agreeing to team up with them for this post. Here’s the deal…..there’s no catch. No sign up fees. No spammy ads. It’s simple, and saved me money. How? I logged into my Splender account, and selected Sephora to do my makeup shopping. Splender sent me straight to the Sephora site, I shopped. I bought. I then got an email from Splender adding up my cash back. End of story. And I got tons of new makeup! A total win, right?
Today’s other total win? This easy five minute face tutorial. Trust me, you’re about to earn minutes of your day back!
1) Prime, smooth and conceal: Apply makeup primer, tinted moisturizer, and concealer to blemishes and undereye circles
2) Enhance: Apply a cream blush to the apples of your cheeks (use your fingers to save time).
3) Details: A thick, black mascara enhances your eyes and makes them pop without tons of eye makeup. Finish your face with a dusting of finishing powder (I use a powdered foundation for more coverage where needed).
4) Finish: A deep lipstain makes your lips pop and brings color to your face.
