5 Minutes to Get Ready in the Morning: What Do You Use?
So I was inspired by today's article on TotalBeauty.com about looks that take 5 minutes to pull off. This morning, I woke up with the birdies and was able to take my sweet time (I also have a date I'm very excited about this weekend so I'm taking some extra care to ensure my skin looks great).
However most mornings this is not the case. Between waking up, trying to get in some excercise, watering my plants, taking out the dog, making lunch, ETC, ETC each minute is precious (plus I want to sleep as long as I can).
I really loved the premise behind this article and believe me I'm totally a 5 minute morning routine girl (my co-workers can attest, especially on my no-makeup Mondays).
I also love being efficient (call is the German in me), so I'm always looking for ways to streamline my routines. I'd love to hear what some of you ladies do out there? Part of being efficient, is always looking for a better way of doing things.
So here is my 5 minute morning routine. Don't forget to tell me yours :)
Wash face with Desert Essence foamy tea tree oil cleanser.
User a non-alcoholic toner
Follow up with a bit of eye cream
Top it off with Serum
Add day time moisturizer with SPF 20.
Add a little bit of foundation and concealer under my eyes.
A quick brush of mascara. Quick lining of the under eye area and a quick dash of light gold eye shadow.
Lipbalm base, lip gloss coat (loving a coral shade from Yes to Carrots right now).
Pitch my checks to get a flushed look.
And Bamm...I'm out the door
I'm pretty fast so I'm usually able to get all of those things done within about five minutes.
Can't wait to hear what you guys do.
