Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year. Cooler temperatures (eventually) and a return to a regular schedule feels great. The hard part? Getting up early to take the kids to school, earlier work days, and less time in the morning to get ready.
Glowing skin is a necessity in my line of work (esthetician) and a little makeup usually goes with the territory. I tend to be a minimalist when it comes to my makeup routine so I was thrilled to try out these easy-to-use, multi-use, clean makeup products from Vapour Organic Beauty to make mornings a little more tolerable and a whole lot quicker!

I put two easy to apply, polished everyday looks with just a few products. They can all be applied with washed hands to a moisturized face. No additional brushes needed. Note: The pictures above are completely un-retouched. I literally just took the pictures in natural lighting and uploaded them to the computer!
I was pretty unsure about the colors for this look when it first arrived. I tend to choose corals and pinks and these were mauve and rosy.
I am so happy that I did try them as they worked beautifully!
1. Stratus Instant Skin Perfecting Primer #904 - 1-2 pumps to prime the skin, applied in a
thin layer over the décolleté, neck, and face
2. Atmosphere Luminous Foundation #115 - a thin layer tapped and blended onto the
skin with my fingers
3. Rendez-Vous Multi-Use Palette* -
Apply Aura Classic in Virtue (middle) to apples of the cheeks and blend out as
desired, then apply a touch of Halo Illuminator in Moonlight (left) on your cupid's
bow, cheek bones, brow bone, and down center of nose to highlight
4. Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss in Metro on lips
*all of the Multi-Use Palette colors are sheer and buildable. Start with a little and add more in layers for a more intense hue.
This look revolves around the Flame Multi-Use Palette.
These are colors I naturally gravitate to - peachy-pinks and rosy corals, yes please!

3. Flame Multi-Use Palatte
That's it! Remember, all of the colors can be intensified by adding more layers. Likewise, you can soften the color by blending with your fingers. Start off with a little, you can always add more as needed.
Wait a second...You said 7 minutes- this only took 5
Yep! The extra 2 minutes can be used for a swipe of mascara, concealer or any other must haves in your daily routine. If not, enjoy a 5 minute routine and get more beauty sleep instead!
