5 Minute Face Makeup

5 Minute Face Makeup

My 5 minute face makeup is perfect for any tired or overworked mamas. I don't always have time (or energy) to do a full face of makeup so most days I stick to a simplified routine that allows me to feel human and not frighten my children. I also like the fact that I can take impromptu pictures with my kids and not hate the way I look in them. I don't include my skincare regiment in these 5 minutes, just my makeup application.

Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer
I love the soft texture and it holds my mineral powder in place.

I use the under eye brightener to soften my dark circles. If I have terrible bags or a giant zit, I'll add some cover girl concealer sick on top.

I swirl this all over my face in a circular motion. It reflects light and evens out my skintone.

I swipe this on my eye lids and to add definition. It's as tanned as I get. lol

I love this inexpensive Canadian brand! It gives my lashes length and so much volume. It also doesn't smudge under my eyes like a lot of other brands I've tried.

I need this definition! Especially if I'm wearing my glasses. I like the subtlety of the pencil for day to day hanging with the kids but prefer Kat Von D's brow pomade (check out my full review here) for a more dramatic look.

I'm obsessed with this eyeliner pen! I've been using it exclusively for years and it gives me a goof proof cat-eye every time.
