However when it comes to us, it’s easy to leave self-care behind. We’ve all done it.
Sponsored by mom.me. Beauty tips and ideas my own.
However it shouldn’t be “all or nothing.” Little things such as taking a shower, washing your hair, getting dressed (yes, DRESSED and not in sweat pants!) and putting on makeup before starting the day makes me feel complete, more confident and prepared for the day ahead.
Every woman has different time constraints but we all have a few minutes to give ourselves.
Because of different beauty needs, I’ve put together 5 different ways to look fabulous in 5 minutes (or less!) The key is to accentuate ONE of your features. Who doesn’t like options?! Best part? Everything can be applied with fingers (even blush) and minimal “experience” needed!
Begin with your face (concealer, light foundation, light blush) and go for BOLD. Apply red, coral or burgundy lipstick and absolutely NO ONE will be looking anywhere else but your lips.
Somedays I just add red lips to distract attention from my sleepy face. Add shades and you are ready to roll!
Play up your brows!
Use eyeliner pencil or eyebrow pencil in the color closest to your brows and gently pencil or brush in color from one end of brow to the other. My current favorite is a brow sculpting wax and tint by Fiona Stiles.
Be gentle! No need to make them dark, you are only adding enough color to to accentuate your brows, which gives your face a brighter, fuller look. Still wear a base such as a CC cream or light foundation, but nothing more.
Clean, crisp look!
Go for the natural look which is as easy as 1-2-3! Again, use fingers, use creme based products and make the process easier for you.
Begin with a bare clean face, apply concealer followed by a tinted moisturizer or light foundation foundation, natural eyeshadow, one swoop of mascara, light/rose blush over cheeks, quick tint or gloss over lips and… you are ready for the day!
