If I had to describe my beauty routine in one word it would be lazy. Because after spending an hour trying to pick out an outfit, I have no more time to carefully apply my makeup like a pro. But that shouldn’t mean that I can’t aspire to walk out the door every day with makeup comparable to Gemma Arterton’s classy look outside the Louis Vuitton fall ’14 fashion show in Paris. Or at least I won’t let it. With practice I’ve achieved a method to my lazy girl beauty madness that results in super-cool makeup with super-minimal effort. I call this “bliss,” and if you try it, I think you just might too. Check out my tips to get Arterton’s look in under six minutes in the gallery, and tweet at NYLON to let me know your lazy beauty tricks.
