I know this isn’t a surprise to many of you, but I have a confession to make. I NEVER leave the house without make up! I love everything about make up from buying it, wearing it, trying new products, applying it on friends and clients, blogging about it and talking about it! I love how make up makes me feel. It makes me feel renewed and ready to tackle to world. I know it sounds funny, after all the hardships we are forced to conquer in our lives, is make up really that helpful or important? Well I believe it is, for myself and for others. Adding make up can give us a little push of self confidence so we aren’t worried about how we look all day or how others are seeing us.

I don’t recommend wearing a full-blown evening look from day-to-day, but adding a few quick habits to your daily routine (even if you are just hanging out in your yoga pants all day) will make you feel better and ready to charge through the day.

Follow these six easy steps in the morning, before you start your day. Once you get the hang of them, you’ll find them to be  quick and effortless!

  1. Start with concealer.  Apply on lids, under the eye, the creases of your nose around your nostrils, along lip line and apply one light strip down the center of your nose.
  2. Add a skin tone shadow on lid
  3. Add a light coat of mascara
  4. Dust loose powder around face
  5. Gently add blush upward from the apple of your cheek towards your temple
  6. Apply your favorite long-lasting lip color to your lips. Choose a lighter color for day, keep the darker hues for night.
There you go.  Just six easy steps to help you look and feel beautiful!

  • I couldn’t agree more, while I will admit I do not always where make-up its a rare occasion that I don’t 🙂 I think its important for people to know that you can have a polished look in a matter of minutes. As all of us moms know you have about 5 minutes to actually take care of yourself!!

  • Great tips!! That concealer really makes a huge difference. I use a yellow tinted one to help tone down my red. I find if I looked put together, I feel put together. And that feeling helps me power through my long days.
