When It comes to makeup, I’ve spent years trying different products. Some disappoint, no thanks to my oily complexion. But now that I’m a mom, quick is key. I don’t mind having a simple make up routine because that means I can get creative on other days and not feel so burnt out from make up overload.
*NOTE: I am by no means a make up professional. This is just may daily routine to accomplish a fresh look in under 20 minutes. P.S. Ignore the crazy morning hair ;P
My first step is to keep my face clean and fresh. If I decide to skip a shower in the morning, I still use a facial cleanser. It gives me a clean slate feeling. My absolute favorite product is the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer. It works WONDERS on my dark circles. Ya know, the ones we all get when the babies don’t sleep. I will say – a little goes a long way. So I usually dab under my eyes with this blender and dab a little on my chin to hide any dark spots.
Before I use any shadows, using the Too Faced Shadow Insurance is a must! This lid primer is easy to apply, a little goes a long way and prevents any creasing. For my everyday makeup routine, I love wearing neutral colors. Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette is my go-to. I keep it fairly simple and use just the Foxy for everyday. When I want to have some fun and add more depth I can use the darker shades.
I’ve been using the Sephora Collection for some time now and I love it. It keeps things easy to use, easy to apply and I still feels and looks like I used effort 😉 The Matte Perfection Powder Foundation is a staple for me. It provides great coverage and an abundance of colors for every skin tone. The Sephora Collection Brush Set is an amazing deal and they’re some of my favorite brushes!
You can probably tell by now that Urban Decay is a favorite of mine. Along with the shadow palettes, I love their Naked Flushed Palette for my cheeks and a tab of the bronzer for around my face. The shimmer in their blush adds a nice little touch!
Lastly, mascara is always a must for me. Some days this is all I will use and the Sephora Collection LashCraft adds amazing dimension and length. Personally, I have a hard time using waterproof mascara because I don’t like working so hard to remove it at the end of the day. This mascara is perfect!
And there you have it! Simple and quick is key for me, and for many Moms! My days of 1+ hour routines are long gone, so these products are easy and helps me get ready in under 20 minutes.
