Get Mom Ready in 5 minutes

by - September 05, 2018

Mornings are hard especially when you have little humans that don’t like sleep. I get it. I used to skip this step but then I realized that spending 5 minutes getting myself ready for the day improved my overall morale. I felt happier. I was less tired. Overall I felt more put together.

This summer I mastered how to get ready with two kids under 5 mins and I thought I would share my secrets with you.

1. Lash extensions
If you are like me and have not been blessed with beautiful long lashes, I highly recommend lash extensions. They’ll make you look more awake, shave time off your morning routine and I don’t know why but mine make me feel just a little sexier.

2. Kill two birds with one stone
Moisturize and cover up at the same time. I mix one pump of my Drunk Elephant La La Retro Whipped Cream moisturizer with a few drops of my Nars Sheer Glow Foundation on the back of my hands then apply it to my face with my fingers. This combination evens out my skin tone, covers up all the dark spots and lasts all day long with no need to blot or retouch.

3. Cover up those dark circles
Swipe the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer under both eyes and pat pat pat with your finger and voila ... Magic!!

4. Set it
I take a big fluffy brush and set my entire face with the Tarte Peach Perfect Mattifying setting powder. This powder gives you that soft airbrushed look. I absolutely love it!

5. Warm up the face
The Hourglass Ambient lighting powder in Radiant light is my best friend. It is hands down the best bronzer out there. It gives you that natural sun kissed glow without looking cakey.

And that’s it! Some days if I feel a little fancy, I slap on a lip gloss! Until next time
