Since my kids are close in age and toddlers now, they play together well. I’m taking advantage of this by using the time to do a quick makeup application for myself. This application is something I do before we engage in an outdoor activity or even when we’re just at home. It’s a good way to wake me up and help me feel ready to chase my boys around. 😉 Here’s a step-by-step makeup tutorial, perfect for women who only have 5 minutes to spare for makeup. This is great for busy moms like me!
1 After I moisturize, I use a primer that has an illuminance glow finish on my face. I love it!
2 Using liquid concealer that comes with a wand, I apply it under my eyes and around my nose to even out these areas.
3 I usually use my fingers to blend my concealer, but I find using beauty blender (similar like this)a quicker way to blend liquid concealers. I love to spray my beauty blender with a bit of facial spray (water will work too), so that it’s easy to blend with the liquid product.
4 Right now, I like using an eyebrow pencil that comes with a brush tool on the end. This way, I can brush off and blur edges quickly.
5 I then apply blush onto my cheeks. I have recently been using a lip and cheek stain as my blush, which is easy to apply and blend using just your fingertips. I love how it stays on longer. Plus, it is made with all-natural ingredients like cherry fruit water which prevents fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
6 I use the same product for my cheeks for my lip color. I also like how the colors fit for springtime. I have dry lips, so I like to apply lip balm on top of it.
7 Next, I curl my eyelashes and apply mascara.
8 After that, I put highlighter powder on my upper cheeks and/or bridge of the nose. I use a technique where I spray a little bit of facial spray (or water) on the brush, before applying the highlighter powder on my skin. Check my post about this technique here.
9 (Optional) Apply a flesh-colored eyeliner on your waterline. This makes my eyes open up and helps me look less tired. Be sure you blend, so it won’t look patchy.
10 (Optional) Use a contour powder (which is 2 shades darker than your skintone) on the side of your nose and cheeks.
