Filed under “Weird Things I Could Do in Less Than 5 Minutes if I Absolutely Had To”? 25 Spartan Race-style burpees, immediately followed by putting on minimal makeup.
Fore sure, I’d use mascara, a gloss and these new products from Wander Beauty.
(Side note: This occurred to me in HIIT class as I sprinted around a parking lot carrying a 15-pound medicine ball. Amazing the things you think about when you’re out of breath and about to toss your cookies.)
Trip For Two Blush and Bronzer Duo ($36 and available in two shades)
Some bronzer/blush duos are so saturated that you can easily end up looking like you’ve got Duran Duran stripes on your cheeks, but these matte duos have purposefully pared down pigment for the quickest blending you’ll ever experience. I like to start by buffing the blush on the apples of my cheeks, then blending it out with the bronzer for a fast, natural-looking cheek flush.
It looks dangerously shimmery when you first pump it out, but once you start blending it in, all you’ll see is the most subtle and radiant golden glow without a speck of glitter in sight. It’s basically like a golden version of MAC’s magical Natural Radiance Illuminating Primer.
I’m a dewy-all-over kinda gal, so when I use this I’ll work half a pump all over my face after sunscreen, and then I’ll skip foundation, concealer and powder. It’s all you need for dewy, glowing skin.
Both the blush brush and the angled bronzer brush have soft, synthetic bristles and brush heads that are a bit smaller than usual, which I like in this case because it makes them so precise.
Overall, there’s a lot I like about these Wander Beauty products, and if you’re interested, you can find them online and at Sephora right meow.
