Have you ever felt intimidated by the amount of products or brushes that goes into a daily makeup look? I know that I have. I always assume that I have enough time to create a killer smokey eye or graphic wing liner in the shortest amount of time, but always end up overestimating my capabilities in such a short space of time.

Over the next few weeks, I am going to be creating three makeup looks that you’ll definitely be able to create in 5, 10, and 15 minutes! Best part about this entire concept is that I’ll be using basic Clarins products to show you exactly how easy it is to create a simple makeup look within a short space of time. For today’s video, I’ve created a super simple makeup look using only FOUR products! To be honest, I was so shocked that I could only use four products on my face and be good to go, but I was highly surprised with the results.

The Skin Illusion foundation has a skin-like finish that left my face feeling “makeup-free”, even though I definitely had makeup on. Each product is so simple to use, especially since I only used a beauty sponge as a makeup tool for this look.
