Lately I have been struggling in the mornings… Well struggling is putting it mildly; it is agonizing getting out of bed. Anyone else have this problem? For someone who used to be a morning person, I have no idea what is going on. The snooze button has been my best friend and worst enemy!!! By the time I get up, I have 15 minutes to get ready before having to drag my kids out of bed.
Even after only a 2 minute shower, the following products have made getting ready fast and easy, so I look presentable at work.
First is my Batiste Dry Shampoo. I can spray my hair and in a few moments it looks freshly washed. I have tried a lot of other dry shampoos, but with this one it is amazing how long I can go without washing my hair. Um, maybe I shouldn’t be admitting that!
For quick eye makeup, I have been turning to my Maybelline Color Tattoo eye shadows. No base is needed as these do not crease on me and they stay on all day. Using my fingers, I put Bad to the Bronze in the crease and top it with Barely Branded on the inside lid. Then I top it off with Cover Girl Clump Crusher Mascara.
For Foundation, I like to use the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation. It gives great coverage, and again, I can use my fingers for quick application. Even though it is not a matte finish, it leaves my skin looking radiant without looking like an oil slick - so I do not need powder.
Then I throw on some blush; I have been alternating between Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso and Nars Blush in Sin. Both are beautiful; Sin (I love the name of the Nars blushes) is a pink/plum color and Luminoso is a beautiful coral color that has some highlighting to it.
To top off my look, I quickly dab on a lip balm or gloss. I love the Korres Lip Butter in Wild Rose. Because it is a lip butter it moisturizes and protects my lips and as a bonus it is tinted so it gives me some color which I need to brighten up my pale complexion this winter.
What products do you turn to when you’re in a rush?
