I am no where near living the “red carpet” life, but I, like most women I do love makeup, trying different looks and playing around with new products to look and feel my best everyday.
Okay OKAY — so most mornings I am wearing dark shades when I drop M off at preschool — but that’s because my mornings are kinda CRAZY!
Besides that, I make sure to look polished, clean and ready to take on the day — a true Divina Latina even though I spend most of my day with my kids, wearing glasses and working at my desk. There is a misconception that to look good you have to spend a ton of time on yourself. Ha! If that were true, then I’d be out of luck!
Here are my top 5 products to look “divina” (divine) and red carpet ready in just 5 minutes:
BB Cream — I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — it works and it’s all you need. Pond’s has a BB+ Luminous Finish Cream with tone perfection. Use it!
Dry Shampoo — Another absolute MUST HAVE! My fave is TRESemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo. I wash my hair 1-2 times per week then spray and go the rest of the week. Hey, a busy mamá has to do whatever it takes!
Body Wash — It starts in the shower! I like to wake up with a fresh fragrance — Caress Wild Peony and Red Plum has definitely found a place on my shower shelf and I like that I smell OH SO GOOD all day!
Mineral Blush — After applying BB Cream, add a dash of blush to give you an added glow — choose lighter pink tones to give you a natural look.
Mascara — Finish off your look with a quick sweep over your eyelashes — it makes your eyes pop and more importantly it makes you look AWAKE.
Let’s face it, by the end of the day I am absolute mush but I don’t have to look like it — yep! The defeated look really isn’t good for anyone.
That’s why this season, TRESemmé, POND’S, Caress and Walgreens are teaming up to offer great deals, beauty tips and your favorite products to help you get a red carpet worthy look, everyday of the week. To get you started I am giving away a $20 gift card to visit your local Walgreens to pick up your beauty essentials!
