Simple Makeup Tips For Those Busy Days!
Every girl knows what those days are like …
Wake up in a rush, maybe young kids or pets already calling for your attention… you quickly rush through the morning. Coffee , shower …. breakfast …. get dressed hair & makeup! … maybe not in that order 😉
So makeup … oh gosh makeup!
If you’re anything like me, you go to your “essentials.”
What are your essentials by the way? Leave me a comment and let me know what you just can’t live without!
For me it’s Botanical Foundation, Blush, Powder, Eyeliner, Mascara & Lipstick or Gloss. If I have extra time then …. Hello Eye Shadow & Eyebrows! 😀 But on those busy days it’s just these 6 items … I alternate with the lips … either a gloss or sheer lipstick.
Here is a picture of my everyday Must Have Makeup Items!
Simple Makeup Tips …. Keep It Neutral
If there’s one thing I have learned over the years it’s that neutral makeup is a must on days when I’m in a rush. It will match anything I decide to wear and is fast and simple!
I need to do the 5 minute makeup challenge! Lord knows I have done it before, just never on camera, so perhaps that will be my challenge this week!
Simple Makeup Must Haves!
This is the order in which I like to apply my makeup on days when I’m in a rush:
#2 I powder with a colorless powder all over to remove any shine.
#3 I apply blush to the apples of my cheeks and blend till it looks nice smooth & even.
#4 Sweep eyeliner across my lids close to the lash line or a dark shadow that acts as a liner 😉
#5 Mascara! No explanation needed, mascara is like the cherry on top & only takes a few seconds.
#6 Last but not least…. LIPS! There are so many lip products to choose from these days, but when I’m in a rush I want something that is easy, feels good on my lips and gives just a hint of color. So my favorite are a sheer lipsticks or a clear gloss.
Below are my Favorite Limelight Sheer Lipsticks Shades
They are odorless, tasteless, & have a moisturizing feel almost like a lip balm!
Colors in order below: FemFire, Prim & Proper, & Plum Luck
They are “layer-able” so you can go from very sheer to a deeper color all in one tube!
Life is too short to spend hours applying makeup. So having a makeup routine that requires less time means more time for you! And look amazing living it!
Until next time xo
