MY UNDER 10 MIN MAKEUP ROUTINE

As a busy mama (hello work! kiddos! single parenting!) I like to have a simple routine to get ready in the morning. I am definitely the kind of girl who never leaves the house without my lip gloss, but I also don't obsess over my makeup. I like accentuating my best features and generally making myself look less tired than I really am but I don't put a lot of time into it. Today I'm sharing my daily make up routine that takes less than 10 minutes!

SKIN CARE

I start by washing my face and applying any serum or moisturizers I'm using that day. You can see the skin care products I rotate through here. I will generally apply moisturizer and then go make an americano while it soaks in. Multitasking!


MAKE UP

I use the flawless in five make up as my starting point and can't say enough about how much I love this set. It comes with a tinted moisturizer, concealer, blush, brow pencil, mascara, and lip gloss which pretty much covers the basics. I'll list the exact shades I use below along with the additional products I like. 

For the flawless in five set I use:
tint skin hydrating foundation in porcelain for my cool tone fair skin
concealer pen in fair (which is basically God's gift to busy girls)
blush in guava
brow pencil in light 
lip gloss in dahlia (I also love opal and bare shimmer but in this pic I'm wearing dahlia)

I set my concealer with a little bit of Beautycounter's highlighting powder in halo and also use my fave Clinique liquid eye lining pen when I want to wear eyeliner as well. In the summer months when I'm more active I like swapping out the brow pencil for Glossier's boy brow in blonde for a little more hold.

I then I do a quick flat iron for my hair and apply a little Jamaican black castor oil which nourishes my hair and fyi, it smells amazing. For special events I obviously put a little more into it, but my everyday life involves a lot of hustle so I rely on this day-to-day routine which takes me from my just rolled out of bed look to being presentable in under 10 minutes!
