Time is of the essence to everyone these days, so it’s no shocker that your morning makeup routine can feel more like a hassle than a luxury. Enter Wander Beauty, a time-saving but not quality-sacrificing makeup line that promises to cover, set, stay, and treat – if it sounds too good to be true, you’ll just have to just try it for yourself.
All you need is 7 minutes. The best part is – this is a no tools required look – you use the ones you were born with (fingertips) and luckily they blend Wander products even better than your $50 face buffer.
Begin by drawing Flash Focus Hydrating Foundation on any areas of the face you need evened out. This foundation is deeply hydrating with the inclusion of coconut oil, so if you happen to forget to apply moisturizer, it’s no big deal. It provides light coverage and can be built up on areas like under the eyes for a flawless look. Depending on your skin type, you may want to set the foundation with powder, but it’s not necessary for everyone.
Now dab Soft Pink from On-the-Glow Blush and Illuminator Duo Stick on the apples of your cheeks, blending upwards and back. The cream blush leaves sheer pigment behind so it’s impossible to get carried away. On the other end, Nude Glow highlighter is the ultimate multi-tasker, serving as luminosity for the cheekbones, eyelids, and anywhere you need a little lift. It’s a beautiful shade of champagne that will work for just about any skin tone – you control the intensity. The more layers you apply, the brighter your highlight.
You’re almost done – impressive, right? Take Exquisite Eye Liquid Shadow in Dove Gray, a universally flattering cool stone shade, and apply from lashline to crease. It can be layered for a classic smokey look or blended with a fluffy synthetic brush as a wash of color. It’s packed with conditioning vitamins C and E to help prevent aging.
The entire look comes together with Love Lock Hydrating Lip Gel in Parisian Red. Paired with Dove Gray shadow, the result is a polished and classic makeup that looks like you spent an hour perfecting. It doesn’t hurt that Love Lock is comfortable and smooth; it feels more like a balm than a traditional lipstick.
These Wander sticks serve as not only your everyday staples, but on-the-go essentials as well. Since you’re using the same products and formulas, they never build up or look cakey. The result is a real-life, real-time makeup look that gives you a full face without the tardy slip.
