My 5 minute face

As a busy mom of three, one being my sweet little 7 month old boy, I only have a few moments to myself a day.  I don’t do my makeup every morning but when I do it needs to be quick and easy.  I’ve finally been able to find the best products that not only cover my lack of sleep but lasts throughout the day.  (Even with drooling fingers grabbing at my face.)

I hardly use a primer simply because I don’t need it for my day to day after washing my face every morning and using my other Tula products.  When I do use a primer I stick with Smashbox photo finish.  It applies nicely and it makes my foundation last through the evening so if I’m going out with friends or have a date night planned I’ll apply the primer.

CC Cream- My absolute favorite foundation is the it cosmetics cc cream, the coverage is amazing and gives a pretty decent coverage.  I love it because it has 50SPF so I can skip the extra step of applying an SPF before hand.

Concealer- Another it cosmetics product I love is the Bye Bye Under Eye concealer.  It’s waterproof and covers all the dark circles!

Blush- My go to blush has been Nars, in orgasm.  The color really is so flattering on all skin tones!  I recently received my birthday gift with my last Sephora order and I think I found my new favorite blush.  It’s Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Paaarty.

Eyebrows- I use a combo of two products.  I have pretty dark eyebrows to begin with but thanks to the 90’s-00’s trend of over plucking they’re a little sparser then I’d like.  I start by using my brow pencil by Anastasia, brow wiz, in soft brown.  I usually always go a shade or two lighter so that my brows don’t overpower my face.  Then I use Benefit’s Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel.  It adds some fullness and sets the brow wiz pencil for the day.

Mascara- I have 3 different mascara’s that are front runners and truly depends on the day which one I’ll wear.  My newest favorite has been Lancôme’s, Monsieur Big Mascara, it literally lifts my lashes and I end up not needing to curl them before hand.  One layer for an effortless look and two layers for more thickness.

Lipstick- I don’t always wear lipstick.  I’m more of a chapstick gal in all honesty.  When I do swipe some on I stick with a nude and usually a matte.  I can’t stand shine gloss!  It give me flash backs of high school, lol.  My favorite Matte lipstick is the Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint, in birthday suit.

Well there you have it, my (almost) daily face.
