I truly despise getting ready and therefore I don’t spend much time doing it; hence this post on 5 minute makeup for moms just like me that want to look presentable but don’t want to spend 30 minutes doing it! If there is enough want for it, I will absolutely post a little video somewhere (IG stories or FB) on my actual routine and I will even use a stop watch for you! 😉 Just let me know in the comments or via email if you want that I can make it happen. I don’t use that many products, in fact most days I don’t even go this in depth but I wanted to make sure I used everything that I would normally use for a date night within this post.
**I will also apologize and preface this post with the fact that I have NO idea what I am doing when it comes to makeup. I don’t have 25 different brushes for different applications and I just do it my own way, so feel free to take it, or leave it 😉
Before & After – YIKES! 🙂 The lighting was awful and the sun came out right before the second shot so it’s a bit brighter but iPhone images for the win! Ha!
Step 1 Face:
I take my amazing cosmetics concealer and I just dab a little onto my finger and create an upside down triangle underneath each eye. I then take my it cosmetics brush and my CC cream (best stuff EVER) and gently blend all throughout my entire face and neck.
Normally it would be $80+ for both separately!
Step 2 Face:
Step 3: Eyes
I don’t always wear eyeshadow but when I do I use this natural eyes palette by Too Faced or the Chocolate bar palette (a new purchase)! For the Natural Eyes palette, I use the second row and apply it as the directions tell me 😉 –> there’s a little “how-to” book that comes with it!
Step 4: Lips
I typically just throw on a little gloss but if I am feeling saucy, I really love this Buxon gloss that I just discovered! I love the color “Alexis”
