While I am a lover of all things beauty, I pretty much never have time to do my hair or makeup. So when I want to look somewhat presentable, I need it to take 5 minutes not 15.
These are the products I have been turning to when I need to get ready in a hurry:
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge: I have started using this over the more expensive Beauty Blender.
bareMinerals barePro Foundation: I love this foundation. It gives medium coverage and comes in a wide range of colors.
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick: You won’t ever hear me say transition shade or see me do an eye look with more than three colors. This shadow stick is easy and comes in a variety of colors. I just blend it with my fingers.
Physicians Formula Butter Blush: This has a pretty strong smell but it is one of three blushes that I own. I have my eye on a couple of blushes but they aren’t a priority right now.
Benefit Cosmetics Watt’s Up: This is easy to apply and doesn’t have big glitter chunks. I just swipe some down my nose, a little on the cupids bow, and a touch where my nonexistent cheekbones are supposed to be.
L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara: I apply one coat of this to my top lashes.
Lancome LAbsolu Rouge Hydrating Shaping Lip Color: I own this in four colors so I will pick one that suits my fancy for the day, which is usually Exotic Orchidee.
