#WalgreensBeauty #CollectiveBiasDisclaimer, this makeup tutorial comes from real life experience with poor nap time management……..
How Lydia's morning nap normally looks (in my mind):
She's asleep. Nope, she's not. Ok, now she's REALLY asleep. I think. Better wait a few minutes just in case. Alright, one more cup of coffee. Make that two. I'll check a few emails, then hop in the shower. Oh no, it's been 30 minutes! Check twitter. Check instagram. Shower……victory! All done. Oh wait, she'll be up in 5 minutes……..I need SOME makeup, don't I?
Moms, you can relate right? Ladies who have to run out the door for work, you too? Yup, we've all had those days where time gets away from you…..and you find yourself with 5 minutes to do your makeup. After way too many days of skipping makeup all together, I finally found a 5 minute face routine that makes me feel pretty and pulled together. The best part? It's all drugstore makeup available at Walgreen's. A full face at a decent price point? SCORE! After quite a few 5 minute experiments…..I figured out the makeup products that provide maximum impact in minimum time. I love how soft and glowy this look is…..perfect for summer!
The most important steps in a 5 minute face? Prep + Conceal, Enhance and Finish.
Prepping and concealing with primer, bb cream and a concealer creates the perfect canvas…..and hides those dark circles. A cream blush and eyebrow gel come next…….it's amazing what a well defined brow and flushed cheek will do for a plain face! To finish off a speedy primping session? A gloss that lasts ALL day and great mascara.
A few hints for speed: keep your products out and ready to go and apply all with your fingers….I didn't use a single brush for this!
