A 7-minute beauty routine? Sign me up!
If I’m being honest, that is what initially got my attention. As a busy mom and business owner, if I can save some precious time in the morning and on top of that manage to look red carpet ready, that’s a huge win.
I was lucky enough to try the cosmetics created by French beauty guru Manna Kadar; inspired by her jet-set lifestyle, her goal while creating this line was to simplify the beauty routines of women worldwide.
You know that I like my makeup and I especially love products that can be used in more than one way to highlight my features; if you’re like me you’re going to love this brand!
Step 1: PRIME
I started by misting my face with the Ready Set Renew Sea Minerals Face Mist, which was just amazing to soothe and refresh my skin and acted as a primer, as it has a mattifying effect, which is great when you have an oily complexion. It would also be amazing to spray on during the day to give your face a refresh or to set your makeup.
Step 2: POLISH
As a beauty fanatic, I know that the key to great makeup is starting with a good base.
After applying my concealer and foundation, I applied the HD Perfecting Powder all over my face using the sponge applicator that comes with it and let it bake for a few minutes before moving on to the next step.
“Baking” when it comes to makeup is a technique used by most Hollywood celebrities; the heat generated by your face “bakes” your concealer or foundation, it is the key to getting that airbrushed, flawless look.
Step 3: PERFECT
This is where you add the finishing touches!
What I love about this brand is that they offer a lot of 3-in-1 products, which means fewer things to carry in your purse when you’re on the go. I used the 3-1 Long-Wear Mineral Powder and the Long Wear Powder Split Plan Duo to contour, shadow and blush.
Now, I’m very particular about my mascara and I’m happy to report that the Turn It Up Mascara ticked all the boxes! The formula is super creamy and really defined my lashes.
There was only one minute left before I had to run out the door and I had plenty of options when it came to lip colours. If you’re looking for something a bit more natural, the super-hydrating Liplocked Priming Lip Wand is ideal. I also love the Liplocked Lipstick Collection as the semi-matte shades are highly pigmented, which can be hard to find for my skin tone.
Manna Kadar’s Beauty Simplified Routine allows you to get your best face in just a few minutes and with just a few products. And the best? It’s fool-proof, even for beginners.
This would be a great gift to spoil the women in your life (especially the Lip Library, an all-in-one lipgloss, primer and stain set)!P.S. If you would like a more detailed review, watch my YouTube video here.
