Got kids? A job? Anything that requires you to be out the door by 7:30am? If you are anything like me, your relationship with your snooze button could use a break. An “It’s not you, it’s me” moment. Or, in my case, “It’s not you; dear, compassionate giver of extra sleep in increments of 9 glorious minutes..it’s my face. I am scaring the kids at my daughter’s pre-school.” Even as a self-professed makeup junkie, I sometimes can’t fit in a full contour and smokey eye. So, grab your Makeup Junkie Bag (or order one now!) and check out these 6 steps (and 6 products) for an easy and beautiful 5 minute face. Also, scroll down for product links!
1.Ole Henriksen, “Perfect Truth CC Cream”
This cream is perfect to even-up and brighten your skin tone. Just in case your four year old decided to play dress up the day before–and you are pretty sure your foundation brush is in Barbie’s camper–it blends easily with your fingertips!
2. Makeup by Sheila, “Blush Glows in Victory”
A little color on the cheeks is a must. My go-to rouge is Blush Glows in Victory, a shimmery bronzer blush combo that suits almost any skin tone with a fresh, dewy finish. Two swipes on the apple of each cheek and you are well on your way to “How DOES she do it?” status at daycare drop-off.
3. ka-BROW!, “Cream-Gel Brow Color”
The late 90s and early 2000s were not good to eye brows. Raise your hand if you over plucked (raises both hands). Ladies, it is 2017 and brows are BACK! A few swipes of this ka-BROW! cream-gel brow color will bring your brows up to date in a jiffy.
4. Urban Decay, “Naked 2 Palette”
Next, a few swipes of a shimmery neutral shadow takes no time at all. By this point the kids are screaming for breakfast, so let’s push through shall we? Almost there! My go to pallet is the Naked 2 Palette by Urban Decay.
5. Diorshow Mascara, “Iconic Black”
Next, brush on a few swipes of Diorshow mascara in Iconic Black to the lashes. Nothing says, “Yes, I am a totally put together super mom”, like fab lashes at 7:30 am.
6. Revlon, Ulta HD Matte Gloss in “Forever”
No makeup routine is complete without the perfect pout! Try this Revlon Ulta HD Matte Gloss in “Forever” to complement your fabulous-in-a-flash look!
