Five Minute Face

During the week I am always crazy busy...whether I'm driving my son to school or heading to work. Still with all my craziness I always, always make sure to throw some makeup on. This is my everyday QUICK AND EASY routine that I can even manage to accomplish with two crazy kids that are usually trashing my bathroom while I am trying to get ready.....ladies I know you know the struggle is REAL. Comment below with any questions or any of your favorite tips. XOXO 

1. Tinted Moisturizer

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20-Illuminizing, $44.00 So many people love this product and I know why. It's the perfect, quick foundation alternative that has an SPF in it and also illuminuzes skin. 

2. Bronzer and Eyeshadow

Benefit Hoola Bronzer, $29.00 An iconic bronzer that does so many things! I use this to bronze my face, contour AND it is also a great crease color for eyes. I swipe this matte bronzer all over my fave then I use this in the crease of my eyes for a quick eye defining step.

3. Blush

Milani Cosmetics Rose Powder Blush in Romantic Rose, $7.99 I discovered Milani Cosmetics after seeing TONS of my favorite You Tube beauty gurus raving about the line. These blushes in particular are so highly pigmented and blendable and are just as good as high-end blushes (in my opinion). I blend this into my cheeks for the perfect natural pink rosy look. For $7.99 try all of the shades they are amazing! Another favorite color of mine is Tea Rose.

4. Brows

Benefit Precisely My Brow, $24.00 I have mentioned this product before and I still am obsessed! To me, your eyebrows are most important and finish your face. Years ago, my brow artist taught me the best way to fill my brows in, and I still follow her routine (I really may do a brow tutorial soon, hmmmm) Once you learn the proper way to shape and fill your brows you will not imagine the difference it makes. So i quickly brush and fill my brows in to really finish my face. 

5. Mascara

Loreal Extra-Voluminous Collagen Mascara, $6.99 I love all L'Oreal Mascaras this is my current favorite. It is very volumizing and BLACK this formula doesn't clump either and it is a great price! 

6. Highlight

Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator, $26.00 Ladies what did we do before highlighters!? I am totally obsessed with any and every highlight I can get my hands on! BUT after hearing so much hype on this product I had to try and OMG it truly is the best.  This creamy, gorgeous highlight lasts all day and gives you the softest, natural glow. I love the shade Ballerina. Another gorgeous shade is Gilded Honey which is a favorite among beauty gurus everywhere. A quick swipe to my upper cheekbones, bridge of my nose and my cupids bow and I am glowing all day long!

7. Lips

 Buxom Full On Lip Cream in White Russian, $20 If you are looking for the perfect pinky nude gloss for any skin type, look no further! This plumping gloss gives me a fuller lip with just the perfect amount of color and shine. These lip creams are not sticky or smelly they truly are amazing! I have a few different shades but White Russian is just a staple now in my makeup bag!

8. Setting Spray

MAC Studio Fix Spray, $24.00 Last but not least a quick spray of this soothing, illuminating setting spray and I am out the door!
