If you’ve been following the Styled by Erika series you’ve probably gotten the idea that I am a pretty low maintenance kind of girl. I like things that are easy to use, easy to wear and don’t make me look like I’m trying too hard. When it comes to by beauty routine, I’m no different.
This may come as a surprise (maybe not), but I really don’t enjoy shopping for or putting on makeup. I don’t know what happened because I used to want to be a makeup artist (HA!). Typically, I only wear makeup 2-4 days a week. I prefer a simple beauty routine that can be completed start to finish in 15 minutes or less.
Here are the only 10 products that I use on a daily basis for my “no makeup makeup” look. Seeing as I only wear makeup a few days a week, these products last me a very long time. I know the prices may seem a little high but when you’re only purchasing these things 2-3 times per year it isn’t so bad. I’ve included the colors I personally use below for you as well.
On a side note – I also NEVER get mani/pedis so I’ve included my favorite nail polish for you as well. This nail polish is amazing. It lasts approximately 2 weeks and is less than $10 a bottle – about 1/3 of the cost of a salon gel manicure.
