When you get up at 5:15 am in the morning (#teacherlife), you have to have a simple and quick makeup routine. I spend no more than five minutes on my makeup on work mornings. Let’s face it sleep > time getting ready. Here’s a peak inside my makeup bag. I’ve placed the products in the order I use them. Don’t we all have a method to our madness?
First, I use Tan Towels
on a weekly basis. I have sworn off the tanning bed (an oath I made to my husband) and need something to keep me from looking pale. While many of you may not see this as necessary, as a recovering tanning bed addict I need these to fill the void. Each day starts with this brush
and my new favorite tinted moisturizer
. I use this brush
for my concealer
. Then I use my Kabuki brush
for my all-over face color
(in The Aphrodisiac). One brush for three products is a win in my book.
I use this brush
for my favorite eyeshadows,Pixi
(in copper peach) & Sonia Kashuk
(in shimmering sands). Next, I use the best mascara
I’ve found in recent times. It makes my short lashes so much longer.
My lip routine is very limited on work mornings. I either use this lip balm
(in coral crush) or this lip gloss
(in fairest flush).
Lastly my makeup bag is always stocked with nail polish remover pads (greatest thing ever!), my fast drying top coat and favorite polish (in mademoiselle). This makes for quick morning polish changes.
