Look, I’m not going to sit here and tell you I do a full face of makeup every single day. Because that wouldn’t be true. I’m also not going to mention that 95% of the time I’m actually makeup-free. Because you don’t want to hear that from a beauty editor. And I’m definitely not going to declare my love for Merit for creating a well-edited line of seven clean makeup essentials. Or publicly thank them, even if each product has upped my beauty routine in ways I never thought possible. Nope, I won’t do that at all. Because that would just be cheesy.
What will I do? Get you aboard my Merit love train. Because that just makes me a good person. In case you somehow missed the recent launch of Merit, it has quickly become the go-to brand for minimal makeup. For me (and many other editors), no-fuss beauty is where it’s at, and I’ve been relying on the line of multiuse products for creating an enhanced version of my everyday look of healthy skin and a natural flush of color. Keep scrolling to see my less-than-three-minute makeup routine—seriously, I’ve broken down the time each step takes below—that I’ve started doing every day. Because everyone, no matter how lazy or busy, can spare a couple of minutes for themselves.
