My 5 Minute Make-Up Challenge

Oh the trials of getting everyone out the door in the morning. If you’re a mom like me you know that that it’s hard to juggle lunch and homework and the dog and finding your husbands keys. Not to mention getting yourself dressed and ready.

Now that I’m over 40 I rarely leave the house without make-up on. Last year I even insisted on applying lipstick before my husband carted me off to the hospital ER with pneumonia.

So I decided to take the YouTube 5 Minute Make-Up Challenge and I think I did pretty good. I used just 7 products (you can see them listed below) and I actually feel like I can face the grocery store with a smile.

My 7 beauty saves.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment for Dark Circle – My dark circles look like I’ve spent too much time in the Hogwarts dungeons. Luckily the Age Rewind makes them disappear like magic? OK, bad joke.

It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Complexion Perfection – The Bye Bye Pore Pressed and Blush in this palette evens out my skin and give me some rosy cheeks.

Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor – This is my new favorite lip stick. It glides on and make my lips shiny. It also smells pretty good too.

Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes in Lots O’Latte  – I love these Chubby Sticks when I’m pressed for time. They glide on and give great color.

The BrowGal Highlighter Pencil – The Brow Gal Highlighter Pencil wakes my eyes up in the morning. Wide awake? Yes!

Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara – Thin lashes no more with my Clinique mascara!

Revlon ColorStay Brow Crayon – This Revlon Brow Crayon gives me a little color on my brows.

So there you have it! 4 minutes and 45 seconds later I’m good to roll out the door looking pretty good.

 

I Just Turned 47 So I Decided To Do A Makeover (Before & After)

I just turned 47-years-old and it’s pretty scary to see all the changes my skin is going through. I have several problem areas including combination skin, large pores. dark eyes, uneven skin tones, hooded eyes and a some sagging. It’s actually quite interesting (and frightening) to take a selfie with zero make-up on, I debated putting this photo up but decided to be brave about it.

The bottom line is that we all age and just need a little help to regain a youthful appearance. I love make-up, it makes me feel good to experiment with new products and shades. There’s something very cathartic about buying a new lipstick or palette.

I believe that anyone can learn how to choose and apply make-up, it just takes a little practice and I learn new things everyday.

Here’s a list of the products I used for my makeover:

Eye Primer – My eyes need a lot of help so I used a combination of Maybelline Dream Brightening Creamy ConcealerMaybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment for Dark Circles, and Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion.

Eyes – I used the purple shades in the Grav3yard Girl Tarte Swamp Family Palette. I also used the Clinique Chubby Mascara in black. On my brows I used the Smashbox Eye Brow Ultra Tech Shaping Powder Mimics which is a neat product.

Face – I used the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter on my forehead, chin and cheeks first. Then I used the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed (I just got this) and the Bye Bye Pores Blush. I really love both of these products. I contoured with the It Cosmetics Sunshine In A Compact and highlighted with the Perfect Lighting Luminizer.

Lips – I can’t believe how pale my lips look bare. Geesh! This reminds me that I should never leave the house without lipstick on. I used the Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor in Desert for todays look.
