Step by Step Makeup in 5

I’ve been asked, ‘Do you always wear makeup?

The short answer is, ‘Yes.  Yes, I do.

Even if it’s just powder, mascara, and gloss, yes I do.

So then the next question people ask is, ‘How do you have the time to apply it with 3 little children?

5 minutes.  I wrote about my 5 minute face here.

But let me show you.

Here I am ladies!  No makeup.

I washed my face with Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser and applied moisturizer as well.


I’m a sleep deprived mama of 3.  I was up maybe 4 times last night with my 8 month old, Mario.  He just loooooves to nurse.

I applied Bare Essentials ‘Well Rested’:

under my eyes

on my eye lids

a little on the tip of my nose



Then, I applied Makeup Forever foundation all over and MAC blush on my cheeks and t-zone.


Eyes:  I thought I’d do 1 eye first to show you the difference.

Just a little eye-shadow, liner and mascara can go a long way for a quick look!


However, my under-eyes are still dark but it’s nothing that ‘Well-Rested’ and a little dry powder can’t fix!  I applied more of it with a small brush over each dark line and kept dabbing it all the way to my hair line (while trying not to get too close to the liner).

All done!  Took no more than 5 minutes.


Trust me, if I can do it… So can you!
