I recently took part in a super fun and relevant beauty influencer campaign sponsored by Clarins Cosmetics. This iconic French makeup and skincare brand invited me to use an assortment of their top selling makeup products to create easy-to-do make-up looks in under 15 minutes and this beauty junkie was totally up for the challenge!

Specifically, Clarins asked me to create a 5 Minute Natural Make-up Look using four of their make-up products, then a 10 Minute Polished Make-up Look using eight of their make-up products and lastly (my personal fav!) a 15 Minute Fabulous Make-up Look using nine of their gorgeous make-up products.

Here’s what I learned by taking part in this fun, educational and enlightening Clarins Natural to Fab Make-up project:

  • Clarins makes beautiful, high quality and super easy to use make-up products that really are perfect for every occasion
  • It is really easy to create a beautiful make-up look if you have the right mix of products!
  • I was able to create all the beautiful make-up looks in the pictures featured below by only using my fingers! No brushes needed, AMAZING!
  • I realized that I can’t live without concealer (and Clarins Instant Concealer is pretty fab!)
  • I am all about the Glam/Fabulous Look, and honestly believe that I can pretty much conquer anything when I am rocking a vibrant red lippie!

Following is a breakdown of each make-up look that I created, the products that I used to achieve that look and a picture of each finished look, hope you like it:

5 Minutes to Natural: This is a quick and simple look that you can easily create in only 5 minutes! This look is for the woman who likes wearing little to no make-up and wants her natural beauty to shine thru
Clarins 5 Min Romy

I used the following Clarins make-up products to create this natural, minimal everyday make-up look:

Clarins 5 Min Makeup Products 210 Minutes to Polished: This second make-up look is also super easy to do, but you take 5 additional minutes to add in a few more steps and products in order to give your face a more polished look when you have a little more time to spare

15 Minutes to Fabulous: My final look is perfect for when you want to take the extra time to create a more glamorous look that pops. If you like defined brows, eyes that standout and a lip that pops, this Fab look is for you (and ME!)
