5 minute Make-up

New mommies know why this tutorial is important.  We rarely get anymore than a few minutes to put on our "face."  Here is how to get a put together look quick.

Foundation / Tinted Moisturizer

If you are someone that only needs light coverage use a tinted moisturizer.  I recommend Boots No7 Dual Action Tinted Moisturizer. No sponge needed.  Just apply as you would your regular face moisturizer.

If you need more coverage mix a squirt of your liquid foundation with a squirt of face moisturizer in your hands and apply to your face as you would a regular face moisturizer.  This makes for even coverage.



Using a non-stick concealer is a little quicker.  I recommend Maybelline's 24hour SuperStay Concealer. Use your finger to blend.  The warmth will make blending a lot easier


A cream blush or cheek tint is usually best in a hurry.  I recommend Revlon Cream Blush or Benetint.  Apply to the apples of your cheeks with your finger tip.  Again, the warmth will make blending easier


Apply a tinted lip balm. I recommend Burt's Bee's Tinted Lip Balm or Ageless Derma Lip Gloss for more color.


Applying mascara from root to tip should give the appearance of a thicker lashes at the lash line.  Some recommend holding a credit card behind your lashes while you apply but I find this isn't worth the time it takes to do so.
