Five Minute Mom Makeup

If you’re a mom, you know that we don’t have much time to do – well – anything! I definitely don’t have time to do a full glam makeup routine everyday, but I do feel better and more productive when I take some time in the morning to put on just a little bit of natural looking makeup. This routine is easy, it only takes five minutes and makes me feel a little more put together on busy days!

Step One: Apply a tinted spf on your entire face. This is like knocking out three steps in one! Your moisturizer, your sunscreen and your foundation can all be taken care of in less than a minute!

Step Two: A quick swipe of blush on the apple of each cheek. A little blush can go a long way in brightening your face and adding a natural glow.

Step Three: Apply one coat of primer, followed by a few coats of mascara to each eye. This is the most important step for me – I think mascara makes a HUGE difference.

Step Four: Put on a light coat of lipstick. A little color on my lips always makes for a more polished look, and the color “Pillow Talk” is my signature color! It looks like your natural lips, but better.

Another tip for applying everyday makeup is using a lighted mirror. I use this one because no matter the lighting in the room, I can clearly see every part of my face so I can apply my makeup quickly and efficiently! Oh and it’s on sale for $70 off right now – it’s a game changer!
