Be the girl who can get ready in 15 minutes (if you have to) and you will have to!
I have never liked to be the girl people are waiting on. Whether it’s skiing or going to brunch–I don’t want to keep anyone waiting. EVER! So, tell me what time you want me ready or where I’m meeting you and I’m there…probably early too!
Sure it’s fun to take your time and get dolled up for girls night out or date night but it’s really great when the last minute invite presents itself and you can get ready in 15 minutes. I’m there!
Here are my go to products to get you out the door!
This tinted moisturizer by Physcians Formula has been my ride or die for years (I never say ride or die–thank you Jaclyn Hill)! But it truley sums up this tinted moisturizer). After a workweek of full coverage foundation I opt for light, minimal coverage–don’t get me wrong I still need the coverage, but this feels light and still covers blemishes. So I apply this–if I’m really in a rush or not that worried about my makeup staying, I’ll skip a primer. Two primers I have been loving here and here.
I’ve been using this mascara from Rimmel for a few years now. I love it! The wand is amazing–it really gets in there and grabs my lashes to fully coat them. Mascara is definitely one of those items where you absolutely don’t need to spend a ton of money. The drugstore ones always seem to be the best!
Ok, so your face is on, your lashes done–if there is one step I always want done it’s….eyebrows! I think I’ve been obsessing about eyebrows since the 8th grade when my mom and my aunt took me to get them waxed for the first time in Denver at Antoine du Chez. I swear by putting on eyebrows. I’ve tried a few different powders and pencils and again drugstore buys seem to do the trick, like this one.
If you really want to save time I also swear by getting my eyebrows tinted. Lauren at Waxing the City in Albuquerque is the best! I always like to get my eyebrows tinted before hosting a big show or if I have an event. Talk about a huge time saver and they really make your eyebrows pop!
Bronze & Blend! Along with my tinted moisturizer I’ll grab a Morphe brush and a bronzer. I’m not too picky on bronzer and I’m not partial to one in particular. Bronzer is another product I don’t think you need to spend a ton. I’ll swipe a little bronzer on my cheeckbones and along my hairline. And that’s it you’re out the door! So the next time you get that last minute invite you can say, “Yes, I’ll see ya soon!”
A setting spray I love….Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray. This travel size is great to throw in your bag on the go. A friend gave it to me for my birthday a few years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since. It truly does extend the life of your makeup.
And lipgloss I’m obsessed with and can’t get enough of…pretty much anything by Buxom. I love this color, Jennifer. It’s a best seller, shimmering lip polish and claims to make your lips look fuller and more voluptuous. Love the tingling, plumping effect! Comes in 88 shades.
What are your go to products? I wanna know! :0)
