Being a mother to 3 and a full-time blogger – I have a hectic lifestyle; I barely have few minutes for my skin care and makeup when I get ready in the mornings. I’m always in rush especially when I get out of the house carrying my favorite lip balm and hand cream. As a influencer and beauty blogger, every one expects you to look your best when you present your self on the platforms and seeing beauty blogger with an overwhelming steps of get ready may not be realistic. With time I have come to fixate a series of steps to implement before/after getting dressed on daily basis.
- You only got one minute to get ready – You’ll need to focus on the appearance of your skin. A bit of nice hydrating concealer or corrector will do the job to even out any discoloration. With a touch of lip balm for a nice hydrating lips. And if you have got couple of seconds left a little bit of blush brings life to you.
- You’ve got five minutes to pull a look – Five minutes ,it sound short but it’s good enough to pull a nice look together! Again, perfect you skin appearance with a concealer, a very light weight foundation or in this case cushion foundation (I’m obsessed over Laneige and La Prairie cushion foundations) and a blush for your cheeks. Then, use your favorite bronzer you add a little warmth to your overall look, like under your cheekbones, forehead and eye crease. To better show off your eyes line your lash line with a brown liner. A bit of mascara, lip balm and you’re ready to go!
- You’ve got 10-15 minutes to create a very sophisticated look – When you have 10-15 minutes to get ready, you consider your self Lucky! Then you make the best out of it! Now a nice light foundation, concealer, liquid highlighter, blusher and bronzer for your face. Using your bronzer combine with a charcoal/brown eyeliner to contour you face and eyes; applying your highlighter on the eye lids, top of your cheekbones and a bit to your top of the nose and forehead to highlight and a cream blush to top of the cheeks. To finish off your look a black mascara and a nice tinted brow pen or powder to give your face a nice frame. Finally taking the last minutes to outline your lips with a liner or your favorite lipstick.
This is probably one of the most realistic post on this blog. Most of us have more than 5 things to do in the morning when we’re on the way out and making the time for us to look our best shouldn’t take too long where we get to ignore it. We want to look our best and just couple steps makes a huge difference in overall look of us. I remember going to college back 15 years ago with just wearing a mascara seemed to be enough, but not anymore. I try to keep things realistic when it comes to social media, and showing off my bare skin doesn’t bother me at all – we all have imperfections and that’s what makes us unique. Hope you all enjoyed this quick get ready tips with me!
