With the boys usually waking me up in the mornings (I wish I was a morning person, I just am not!), it’s always a struggle trying to get myself presentable and ready to get out of the house, while also trying to keep the boys entertained! In the past few months, I’ve added a few products and narrowed down my make-up routine to be just five minutes. That’s about all I have time for these days!
I should preface that without a doubt – the first thing I do after my skincare is apply sunscreen. It’s my #1, never leave the house without wearing! I tend to prefer Supergoop or Elta MD. I’ve been using Elta MD since college, but I really like some of the new Supergoop formulas, too.
Cream Shadow Stick
I start with my eye makeup first, so I can clean up any stray shadow around my eyes before applying concealer, etc. I love this cream shadow stick. I use it on my eye lids and it’s so easy to apply.
I started using this gel liner in espresso ink in high school and have recently gone back to it. I love that it’s easy to apply and stays on all day. This is all I wear during the day, and at night I’ll add a little bit of a powder shadow to give a “smokier” look.
Brush: Ultra Fine Gel Liner Brush
I started using this volume mascara around Christmas and I am loving it so far. It definitely amps up my lashes!
Light Wonder Foundation
I was looking for a new tinted moisturizer and was introduced to the Light Wonder Foundation. Even though it’s called a foundation, I find it as light as a tinted moisturizer and you can layer for more coverage if needed. I wear shade No. 3.
Magic Away Concealer
This is probably the best concealer I’ve used. It goes on so easy and you don’t need much to hide tired eyes! I use one shade lighter than the Light Wonder Foundation, shade No. 2.
Brush: This concealer comes with a built in brush tip. I usually pat with my ring finger to blend.
Bronze & Glow Contour Duo
I use this duo mostly for the bronzer, but if you are into highlighting it also has a highlighting powder. Again, it’s quick to apply and gives a sun kissed look.
Brush: This is actually a powder brush , but I use it as a bronzer brush. I find that it gently applies bronzer vs it being too heavy.
Brush: Cheek Colour Brush
I’ve been using this blush in Tawny and love it. It gives some good color to your cheeks, but I find it to to be a very natural look, which I like.
Extra Lip Tint Lipstick
I am obsessed with this lip tint. It’s called a lipstick, but I would say that is misleading – it’s more like a hydrating chapstick with color. I wear the color “bare raspberry” but plan on trying a new color for Spring!
