Life is busy right? Especially when you have kids. I feel like I am constantly being pulled to get some water with coconut “taste” (flavoring) or to pull some weird object that was on the floor that no one but Lettie’s little magnifying eyes could find out of her mouth. I try my best to get ready every day but often times I get ready and look in the mirror around noon and look haggard… and it is somehow on the days that I have somewhere to be that I look the most haggard. Anyone else feel me on this?
I have come up with my 5 minute mama refresh that helps me to not only look a little less haggard but helps me to feel more put together and confident. This is my go to things that I can grab and throw in my bag (I really need a car kit of them) when I don’t have much time to help me look a little more put together when I have somewhere I need to be.
|| BRONZER ||
Bronzer is game changing to warming up your face and giving you a little bit of color. I put it just under my cheekbones, around my hair line, jaw line, and a little down my neck to give me a little bit of a “sun kissed” look. I also love to use an eyeshadow brush and put it in the crease of my eyes to add a little dimension to them when I am in a hurry.
|| CONCEALER ||
Hiding dark circles is something that helps me to look better and feel better. Shape tape is my saving grace concealer and it hides just about everything that can happen under your eyes. I love that it lasts all day and only takes a tiny bit. Using concealer helps you to look more well rested and brightens up your entire face.
|| BLUSH ||
When I am in a hurry my go to blush is the NARS stick blush in the color orgasm. It has a tiny bit of shimmer which brightens my face a little bit and is super easy to apply whether I am in the car, doing it in my phone camera, or don’t have anything at all to apply it in front of. I love that it is a stick so you can throw it in your bag super easily. I also love to blend it in with my fingers so I don’t need a brush or anything either.
|| GLOSS ||
Adding a tiny bit of gloss really finishes off a look quick and simply. Even when I don’t have time to put any other makeup on I generally with throw on a tinted chapstick or a gloss because of what a difference it can make to your look. For some reason it just pulls everything together quick and easily. My favorite universal gloss is Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in shade Fenty Glow but for a drugstore NYX Buttergloss can’t be beat!
I would love to know if you have any tips and tricks that make getting out the door quicker or just refresh you to feel good and more confident fast! These are simple things and products that I can’t live without and are my ride & die products!
