Simplify your make up routine...

Keep it simple my friends....

One common misconception of being a make up artist, is people think that I am done up all the time. There is a very big difference between "Instagram make up" and "real life" make up. And seriously, stop comparing your face to these Instagram make up artists. The most common question I get is, how long does it take you to do your make up in the morning? My answer is always, 5-10 minutes. Unless I am getting ready for a photoshoot, I just do not spend any more time on my face. My time is more valuable in other places in my life. My children, my house, reading my bible, working etc. Not obsessing over what I look like. BUT, Its all about balance. Investing in your self, your appearance and how you feel is all very important. (Which I will get into more soon, another post, another day). If you sit in jammies all day with no make up, you will be less productive as if you woke up, took 5 minutes to do your face, spent another 5 minutes to put normal clothes on before you started taking care of the kids/house etc. 

So don't get over whelmed, keep it simple and keep it clean. Pictured above is my normal daily "running around" make up routine products. Simple, minimal, and it only takes me a few minutes. While I am not wild about the IT Cosmetics Illuminating CC cream, I do love the color. The pigment isn't too strong, but it has a good coverage. What I don't like about it, is it looks like I have glitter on my face in the sun. I am not down for that. So I will try their basic CC cream next time. Hoola is always a must have along with my "Love Joy" Blush from MAC. Elf brow kit is super easy and quick with an angled brush, waterproof mascara from Maybelline, and just a quick nude lipgloss. Actually, my favorite lipgloss right now is MAC's Deelight. It's GORGEOUS! Hope this helps! Email me or comment with your make up questions!
