Like Beyoncé, I’d love to say that I woke up like this. Sadly, unless I start paying a makeup artist to doll me up in my sleep, it will just never be the case.

Makeup-free is typically not an option because I’m not quite as brave as Tyra Banks when she posted a makeup-free selfie.

Even though I’m not likely to leave the house without makeup, I do love a more natural makeup look. When I saw this video then, I was totally obsessed! With just five products (yes, really!) and five minutes (seriously!), the beautiful, natural look is done. It’s a lazy girl’s makeup tutorial dream.

The secret to keeping the product count low is using multitasking products, like the oil-free Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, which provides both allover light coverage and darkness correction as an under eye concealer.

Ditto the COVERGIRL Trunaked nude palette, which works for eye shadow and brow powder. These multi-use products make life easier and less expensive!
