My 5 Minute Makeup Routine with #1 Top Beauty Advice with Supergoop!
Being a mama means mornings are extra hectic! Between the screaming baby, feeding the whole family and trying to get ready for work, things are downright chaotic sometimes! I pretty much have only 5 minutes or less to look half way decent before running out the door. Some days, my makeup routine is done in the car, parked in front of my office. By this point, I have it down SOLID and wanted to share my step by step routine plus my #1 game-changing beauty advice since discovering Supergoop!.
Step 1: SPF! All Day, Every Day!
You know those fine lines and wrinkles we start getting in late 20s, early 30s? Those are all thanks to our friend, the sun! Why didn’t I listen to my mother when she stressed the importance of drinking water and using sunscreen? Well, it is never too late to start. It is detrimental to wear sunscreen, even if you spend majority of the day at a desk job (hello! SPF gets through the windows!).
My biggest issue with sunscreen used to be the texture and shininess. Since switching to City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30, my skin feels healthier, fresher and not sticky at all! It’s specially formulated with Vitamins E and B5 to fight against pollution and environmental damage while keeping my face moisturized and UV protected. City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30, provides the perfect canvas for my easy makeup! My second biggest challenge was the reapplication. How do you keep re-applying sunscreen without ruining your make up? Stay tuned for the perfect solution I found to address this age-old question.
Step 2: Light Shadow and Highlight the Eyes
Dark circles and tired looking eyes are part of my mom uniform. I found applying light shimmery eye shadows to the inner corners of my eyes help reduce the appearance of being a mom ;)
I also swipe a highlighting shade across the inside of my bottom eye lids to create an illusion of rest.
Step 3: Frame Your Face
I never leave the house without filling in my eye brows. I always highlight the underside of the arches of the brows with a slight shimmer. This gives me a more youthful awake look! Eye brows make such a huge difference in the way our faces are framed. I used a 2-toned powder to get the perfect shade.
Step 4: Make Those Cheeks Glow!
I love a healthy glow, especially the one you get by combining bronzer and blush. Using a bronzer with a slight shimmer gives me a dewy glow! If I don’t have a highlighter on hand, using a gold-ish eyeshadow will also do the trick!
Step 5: Set Make Up with Extra UV Protection
Remember the life-changing products I teased earlier that allows you to put SPF over make up without ruining it? Well, the secret is out, I love love love finishing my routine with Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50. It’s a 3-in-1 mist that helps set your makeup and controls oil to provide a perfect matte finish. On top of it all, this refreshing mist smells like rosemary heaven while delivering a powerful SPF 50! The best, now I can reapply sunscreen without smearing off my foundation and bronzer! It’s a total game changer! I love using the Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50 as an afternoon pick me up too! I could get lost in the refreshing, rosemary smell!
Step 6: Reapply As Needed
As I am reapplying my powder throughout the day, I like to dust 100% Mineral Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45 over my makeup as well! This setting power also helps to control oil and reduce shine on my face, especially the T-Zones. It’s made from 100% mineral and goes on translucent. I love the way the soft brush feels. It’s such a great way to reapply SPF throughout the day! The weather gets so hot and humid in Texas, this powder is a must have!
I cannot stress enough the importance of protecting my skin with the proper SPF. These amazing products from Supergoop! helps me apply and properly reapply throughout the day. It’s such a game changer, I will never sunscreen the same way again!
