10 minute makeup

Today, I woke up at 11 am when i had intended to wake up at 6:45 am to get ready and leave the house to vote (I can hear the bf saying "whats new?" as he is reading this lol) So I took a shower and was determined to get ready in no more than 15 minutes so I can wait in line to vote. I thought about going bare faced, but heck I dont care if its too hot out or if i'll be waiting in line under the sun, I need my eyebrows! haha

Pardon the ewwie looking hair,
no taming it when its so hot outside

camwhoring my inked finger hehe.
So obvious
im an excited first time voter lol

What I used:

Kirkland Mineral Loose Eyeshadow

Pearl, Nude and Suede

Swatches (l-r: pearl, nude and suede)

Im not a big fan of mineralized makeup. I used mineral foundation before, but after switching to RCMA I tried to go back to it but didnt like the coverage and the finish. Ive always liked mineral eyeshadows though because the colors are so vibrant but I found them a little messy because of the fall out.

The kirkland loose mineral eyeshadows are no exception. But I like the shades that my mom got for me, these 3 are a quick solution to days when im in a hurry. I simply use the lightest one which is pearl and apply it on my lids, nude on the crease blending it toward the browbone and suede applied and blended on the outer v and crease. Applied suede on the lower lashlines, applied eyeliner, curled lashes, mascara and voila.

Too hot for my regular foundation, so I just used M.A.C's moisturecover concealer under the eyes and studio fix powder and I was off to go to my precinct to cast my vote. Brought water and a book to keep me entertained while waiting. But there was no line and didnt have to wait at all (im one of the lucky ones) spent about 5 minutes and I was done =)

I know elsewhere, the lines are crazy long and you have to wait in line under the sun. I am at an awe at all those people who are still in line, those who waited 2-5 hours and especially the volunteers! Please dont be discouraged by the long lines. Its just a few hours in exchange for a better Philippines. Hoping for a more peaceful election, too many election related violence reports already! Stay safe everyone
