5 minute makeup routine

This makeup routine is for those days that you have about 30 minutes to get yourself 
and your kiddos ready to run out the door on last minute errands or play dates 
but you don't want to leave without a little makeup.

5 min makeup



This may sound weird but I use these when I am in a time crunch or just want a little refreshing.
I wipe my face with one of these wipes... 
they feel so refreshing 
{just like the name}
and they also remove that little bit of dirt you built up while sleeping the night before.

I just started using this and so far I am loving the way it makes my eyes feel...
now that I am in my 30s I really need to start taking better care of my skin especially on my face
so this stuff is perfect way to start that.
I pat this under my eyes and also on my eye lids.

I absolutely love love love this stuff!
Yes it's extremely expensive but it is 100% worth it.
My skin feels so amazing after using it & it keeps my skin hydrated all day
which I really need...
after having both my babies my face is so dry!
I put this all over my entire face and I also use it on my neck.

This is for under your eyes and helps brighten them up
and it also is great for covering up those dark circles all of us moms have from those long nights
we are up with our babies!
I dab some on with the stick then pat it in with my fingers.

It's supposed to be used for keeping your eyeshadow from creasing...
I do use it for that on the days I use eyeshadow but on those days I just don't have time for it,
I use it as cover up on those pesky acne spots that I have.
The girl at the Benefit counter is the one who actually told me to do this & it has worked awesome!
I pat this on with my fingers {if you rub it in it just disappears, so pat don't rub.}

On the days I don't really need complete
and full coverage I use just my BareMinerals foundation,
it gives me enough coverage to even out my skin which is all I need on those
last minute outings.
This goes all over my face
and you can add as much as you need that's the beauty of this foundation,
so if you need a little more coverage on just one little spot you can concentrate it there.

This bronzer is awesome.
I love it and have used it since I was 18.
It gives me just the right little glow.
I sweep it across my forehead, along the sides of my nose,
on the apples of my cheeks and just a touch on my chin & neck.

I love this blush...
I got it for my wedding and have used it now for about 5 years.
It's the perfect color for my skin.
I just use this on the apples of my cheeks.

I love this mascara.
The brush is angled and it is also a flexible brush so it goes on really easily.
I only put mascara on the top lashes during the day.
I do not ever curl my eyelashes because they already touch my brow bone & leave little black marks
if I don't keep my eyes closed for a few seconds after applying my mascara.
{because they are so long. 
I know you can hate me for it, my mom does!}

I got this from Sephora as my birthday gift and I fell in love!
This stuff feels so good on my lips and it has just the right hint of color to give them a pick me up.
I just put this on my lips and I am good to go.

Here is the look put into action :)

She's totally a momma's girl right now

I hope that this has been a little bit helpful in getting out the door fast when you just don't have time for yourself really but need to look somewhat put together! :)
My go to for quick hair is the side braid that I have done in the above picture.
I can do a tutorial for it on here for you if you'd like but I got mine from
Kate at the Small Things Blog here
and just continued it longer and put it into a messy bun.

I also love Dermatalogica! A beauty store was closing and had it 50% off, I bought 2 bottles and when I got home and told the hubs he sent me sck to buy them out of my lotion! He knew I would just have to get more in a couple months. Good hubby, good :-)

Happy SITS Day! This is a fantastic routine. I barely go anywhere these days but I almost always do a little five minute routine. I love the Too Faced packaging and have not bought any of their products myself - i get so many mixed reviews.

libbyuglesich said...

Recreateanddecorate said...

I was one of those who would take an hour to get dressed since having kids, my oldest is 13, my makeup and hair routine has definitely suffered! Who has time when you have kids! Right!

Deb Devita said...

Great tips. I usually do about a 5 minute face most days. I tend to put a little more effort on the weekends though :)
