My 5-Minute Face in 8 Easy steps…

004026 I’m busy…but let’s face it, so are you. We all are in this non-stop modern day world. And on top of all that, I’m now a full time mom…thus diminishing any free time I had to about zilch. This forced me to reassess my morning makeup routine. Where once I had all the time I needed to get ready, now I have to be finished in about 15 minutes…and that includes getting dressed and showered ;) Here’s what I do to get ready to “face” the day: 001 Step 1: Marcelle BB Cream in Golden Glow (c/o Birch Box) for an all over tone and base. 002005 Step 2: Light application of Makeup Forever’s Pro Finish powder foundation (c/o Makeup Forever) 003007 Step 3: I give myself a big smile and apply NARS Orgasm blush to the apples of my cheeks. 004010 Step 4: Add a little bit of color to my eyebrows. This really makes a face look polished. I used Ardell Brow shadow in mink brown. 010012 Step 5: I never (ever) leave home without my black eyeliner. This L’Oreal liquid liner in black can be picked up in about any drugstore in the country.005014 Step 6: I  apply a double coat of mascara. I’m currently using this fabulous mascara from Chatecaille in black (c/o of Chantecaille). It’s by far by favorite mascara. It feels very lightweight, creates super long lashes and is gentle on my eyes. 006015 Step 7: I finish my eyes with eyeliner along the waterline. I personally love Chanel’s Le Crayon Khol in Noir. 007020 Step 8: My final step is with my lips…the color/gloss depending on my mood and what I’m wearing. I’m pretty partial to MAC creme collections. I’m currently using their Over Indulgence color. 024 And voila! I’m my everyday makeup is finished. Seriously takes about 5 minutes. There are no excuses for leaving the house with a “I just woke up” look anymore ;) This is a must for all modern day moms…we got to work on our overall image, ladies!027 XOXO,
