My 5ish-minute makeup routine

When my babies aren't waking up because they're sick or teething I am waking up around 5am to get myself together. Who else struggles to get out of the door if you don't have yourself all made up before the babies are awake? I swear on those days it takes us 2 hours to leave. Real talk. Between picking up messes or telling your toddler not to get into things, you name it...we have probably been through it. 

That's why I wake up well before them to drink my coffee hot, put a little makeup on and get dressed in peace. #selflovin  This is my go-to beauty look! Super easy and not too over done, unless you love blush like me (insert sassy emoji here). Ha! How do you get ready? I'm a stay at home mom but I love wearing even just a little makeup. It makes me feel prepared for the day, prepared for my kids. I can't be the only one. I'd love to hear your feedback on how your mornings go. 

Here's a breakdown of all of my fave products:

it cosmetics CC+ cream-light: I love this foundation. It's actually a CC cream so it acts as a moisturizer and a sunscreen. 

Hourglass ambient bronzer-nude bronze light: This bronzer is just perfect. I have just recently gotten into bronzer and I have a few but this one is my absolute favorite. The color is so pretty and blends well with any makeup. 

Milani blush-tea rose: Inexpensive and works like a charm. These days just because something is more expensive doesn't mean it's the best. Like this blush, the colors in the Milani line are all so beautiful and super afforadable. This is one of like 10 that I own. 

Revlon Lipstick-bare affair: Revlon kills it in the lipstick game. If you haven't given their line a shot, I would now and you can always find a sale and buy 2 for $6 bucks. The color range is huge too. They break it down by reds, plums, pinks, mattes, get the point.

NYX micro eyebrow pencil-expresso: How did I forget my HOLY GRAILLLL makeup item?!?! I have been trying to test out other eyebrow pencils and have yet to find one that works like this guy. The formula of this isn't as creamy as some of the other pencils can be. I love how precise the point is so you can shape your brow perfectly.  Plus, you don't break the bank buying eyebrow pencils.
