It’s no secret that as a mom, sometimes you just need to run out the door to your next errand. Often with multiple kids in tow. But we don’t have to look homeless when we do this! Over the years I’ve gotten a lot really good at fast makeup looks that literally require 5 minutes of your time, and I want to share my process with you today! Let’s dive into the 5 minute mom face!
The main things to focus on when doing a 5 minute mom face are:
- Creating a clean base with a primer/tinted moisturizer
- Adding a little color back into your face
- Filling in those brows!
- Creating a simple eye look
- Finishing with a lippie (or gloss)
If you spend 1 minute on each of these steps, you will have your 5 minute mom face ready to go!
Base Face: Grab our amazing CCTM to color correct and brighten your face. Then take our color correcting concealer and add it to your inner corner of the eye and at a diagonal under your lower lash line, going towards your hairline. Then Blend!
Add some color: Now let’s add some color back into your face! Take Bronze Blushsense and blend upwards toward your hairline and around your hairline on your forehead. Then take a second BlushSense of Choice and blend toward your hairline.
Fill in those brows: Do not neglect those brows! Even if you have no eye makeup on! Your brows frame your face and make your eyes pop! Take Rustic Brown ShadowSense and blend lightly into your brows to darken them naturally!
5 Second Eyes: This is my best kept secret…you can achieve a super fancy looking eye look with 1 ShadowSense color! Just pick a semi-neutral shade and either blend it all over the lid or just in the crease (I chose Bella Cream for this look). Then finish with UnderSense + LashSense and your eye look is fancy as can be!
Luscious Lips to Finish: Top off your look with your favorite LipSense shade or Gloss Shade! I LOVE that LipSense stays all day and makes you feel so put together without having to worry about touch ups! Plus it’s mask friendly! I am wearing Bella + Bella Matte gloss for this look!
