One of my goals for the new year was to wake up before my girls and get myself showered and ready for the day by 6:30. Getting ready before them really helps with my overall mood for the day, and helps save a lot of time. I also enjoy the time I have by myself in the morning.
Since I have to leave the house at 7:05 a.m. to get Allie to school, I have to hurry with the whole makeup and hair situation. I don’t wash my hair everyday, but I do wear makeup every day. I may not do full makeup everyday, but I gotta do something! Here is my 5 minute makeup routine that I do on most days.
I start off with my moisturizer after I get out of the shower. I have fairly dry skin in the wintertime, so I can’t skip out on this. Gotta hydrate my skin.
I go right in with my Bare Minerals BarePRO Powder Foundation in 04 Aspen. This is so quick and easy to buff in and even out my skin tone.
I need some color to my face, so I’ve been using Benefit Hoola to bronze up around the perimeter of my face. This bronzer is matte, and makes me not so dead looking in the morning.
For blush, I tend to stick to rosy pinks, and I’m using this Hourglass Blush in Luminous Flush. This has a highlighter swirled in too, so DOUBLE WHAMMY. I apply this to the apples of my cheeks with an angled brush.
For my brows, I brush in some Glossier Boy Brow, and I’m good to go. It darkens the hairs and fills in any sparse areas.
Mascara is super important to looking awake and put together, so I always give myself a few generous coats of L’Oréal Lash Paradise!
Lastly, we can’t forget the lips! It pulls the whole look together. I’m using this Glossier lippie in Zip. It’s a sheer matte red that looks so pretty.
That’s it for my 5 Minute Makeup! Throw on some hoops and a cute top, and I’m ready for the day.
