A Simple, Weekend Face

Wow!  Life can be exhausting at times! I’m sure you can relate to this. I myself have a full time job, and come home to become a mom and a wife. Then on the weekends I become mommy.  Yes, there is a difference between a mom and a mommy.  Mom is one who is stern, gets everyone fed, bathed, homework done, and to bed on time.  The ‘mommy’ lets her hair down, doesn’t want to really spend time applying make-up, and likes to lounge in sweats! But, who really feels that good with no make-up on? Not me! So, I have developed the perfect 4 step routine that takes less than 5 minutes of your time.

Step 1: Apply liner to only the top lid.  For the perfect fuss free liner, try Beautique Eye Pencil in Black or Brown.  By applying liner to only the top lid it will help to open up the eye and make it appear more alert.

Step 2: Apply mascara, again only to the top lashes.  Use a matte black like Femme Couture Total Impact Blackest Black. This will give length and fullness to the lashes. Why matte? This look is simple, so you want to keep impact to a minimum.

Step 3: Blush! Add some color to your cheeks to combat paleness.  The ideal blush, Femme Couture Floral Blush, is a two in one mix of color that provides bronzer with a hint of pink (My shade pick: Dusty Mauve).

Step 4: Don’t forget the lips! By adding a hint of glisten or light color, it will help to balance out the simple look. Sally Girl Wand Lip Gloss carries all the right shades, plus it’s small and easy to carry in a pocket or wallet for quick application on-the-go.

Now put your sweats on and go to that sporting event with your child, or even feel good walking through the grocery store not looking so pasty. Best of all you know you only spent 5 minutes to look this good – what a great feeling!

    I like to wear powder make-up and powder blush on weekends if I am not going anywhere special. It gives me a rest from the make-up base that I use during the week.
