Summer is wrapping up and it’s time to get my “super mom” suit back on and get my kiddos back into the school/activity routine. That means early mornings full of lunches and backpacks. No one wants to be the “just rolled out of bed” mom at drop off in the mornings, but who has time for all that fuss while trying to get the kids in the car?
Here are some tried and true tips and products for a 5-minute face that will have you getting to school looking fresh as a daisy and ready to tackle the back to school hustle like a superhero.
Step 1: Apply a BB cream to the whole face. BB creams are great because they allow you to skip some steps in your skin care process. Most BB creams have correctors and particular agents in them that you can tailor to your skin needs. Skip the four skin steps in the morning and look fresh with a glowing, even skin tone.
Step 2: Apply a brightening concealer under eyes and pat into under-eye area and down to nose. By brightening this area, you’ll diminish the dark cycles and draw the attention away from any imperfections. It’s an instant eye awakener.
Step 3: Apply some mascara to top lashes.
Step 4: Follow with brushing up brows with brow brush. This step is great for lifting the eyes and making brows look groomed without adding any more color to them.
Step 5: Add a cheek stain to the apples of your cheeks.
Step 6: Blend cheek stain well with fingers to give cheeks a flushed appearance. Our faces lose color when we are tired, and having some cheek color really awakens the face.
Step 7: Use the cheek stain on your lips as well to give color to lips.
No one will ever know if you are tired or not! You will look fresh and ready to tackle the day!
