The Boyfriend Look


My boyfriend hates makeup. He loathes it… especially when I am getting ready in the morning and taking up his mirror space. But I actually don’t think I put on a lot of makeup at all, and on my “lazy days” I’ll just put on my glasses to cover my eyes so I don’t have to wear anything. Yes, I can be that lazy. However, when I do make an effort, I try to go for the all-natural look – which means, no eye shadow, no foundation, and definitely no false lashes. Seriously, it’s just TOO. MUCH. DAMN. WORK. Plus, if you work in a professional environment, I think it’s best to leave the blue eyeshadow and glitter lipstick for a night out with the girls instead. Am I right?

So I created this look that literally takes me less than 10 minutes. It’s fast, easy, and guaranteed to get my boyfriend off my case.


Here’s what I used:

  • Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus
  • E.L.F. Eyebrow Kit
  • Measurable Difference Instant Lash Mascara
  • MAC Mineralize Concealer
  • Laura Geller Blush-n-Brighten Pink Grapefruit Blush

Sometimes, I’ll add eyeliner, but I’m not wearing any in this photo. I think the less I have to do, the better. Facts.

I love love love Laura Geller’s Baked Blushes. The Blush-n-Brighten Pink Grapefruit Blush gives me that warm, dewy look I have been looking for all summer. I’m also really excited about using Measurable Difference’s products. I’m currently using their Lash & Brow Amplifying Serum to get my lashes to grow, and it’s been helping. The mascara is one of my favorite products because I don’t even need to curl my lashes anymore. Again, the less work I have to do in the morning, the better.

My boyfriend still complains about my makeup routine in the morning, but that’s only because he thinks I’m beautiful looking the way I do when I roll out of bed.  And that’s the best compliment any woman can ever receive.
