30 second makeover

1.  Clarisonic Mia 2 in Peony (this adds 2 minutes to the 30 second makeover) but makes your skin into a fresh clean canvas before you begin.  Then I use Caudalie moisturizer.  

2.  Lancome Lit from Within makeup with SPF15 Foundation I got this from Sephora using their new "color match" system.  They take a picture of your skin in 3 different areas and the computer finds which colors would work best, and you can filter the results by type of make up like powder or liquid!  A beautiful African American woman was helping me with my color and accidentally got her finger in the picture of my skin so my first result was a bit off and we had to redo it!

3.  bareMinerals Well-Rested Eye Brightener If you use this to draw a line from the outer corner of your eye to the outside edge of your eyebrow and blend it, that supposedly gives an instant "face lift."  My eyes are too sensitive for this but they also recommend putting a line of this under your lower lashes to make the whites of your eyes "pop."  

4.   Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder which goes on all of the places the sun would normally hit.  This combination palate is great because it can go between seasons since it has a mixture of bronzing colors.

5.  Watt's Up Benefit Highlighter is to be used on cheekbones and brow bones for an extra glow.

6.  Clump Crusher Extensions mascara for luscious lashes.  This one comes off easily with eye make up remover, I can't stand when it takes forever to remove eye make up at night.  Mascaras should be changed every three months for eye hygiene so I hate to spend too much on mascara.

7.  Sugar Rose Tinted Lip treatment with SPH 15 is a nice option that keeps your lips sun protected and treats any dryness.  This is my go-to for lips in my 30-second makeover.

Maybe a splash of perfume and you're out the door!

Have a few extra minutes, and a few reinforcements from middle school?  

Have more than a few extra minutes?  Do your eyebrows, or get them done.  That always makes a difference!  And keep those brushes clean with a good brush cleaner.  They always apply make up better when kept clean.
