Sometimes we have all morning to get ready for the day. Hot shower, hot coffee, flawless hair and makeup.
Sometimes we have 10 minutes to get ready. Luke warm shower, screaming child, diet shake for breakfast and 5 minutes to look presentable.
When those days happen, and they happen more often than not, I am here to help you with some easy tips for creating a FRESH FACE and not a “Are you feeling ok? Cuz you look really tired…” face. You know the one.
So on those days, when you’re running out the door, wondering what happened to all that precious “free time” you used to have… try this.
I received these Mereadesso products from a PR company I sometimes partner with. They wanted to hear my thoughts on these amazing products.
I’ve been keeping the Travel Sized All-in-One Moisturizer and the Lip Treats in my purse for the past month. I can tell you right now, that I love them so so so much. The lip treats are FANTASTIC and make my always chapped lips feel fantastic and smooth and super soft. The lip treats are made with a blend of evening primrose, grape seed, coconut and sunflower oils, enhanced by Vitamins C and E. They are a great lip prep before I wear lipstick to prevent feathering, help smoothness and allows my lipstick (and gloss!) to last longer, so I reapply less! Bonus! Did I mention they come in tinted versions too?
This All-in-One Moisturizer, folks, I can not stress enough how amazing it is. I wish I had 100 more of them to share! I love it! My skin has not felt so good, and smooth and moisturized in a long time. Even with all my weird nose issues, my skin is still bright and vibrant! I’ve been letting my friends and family use it, and I am almost out. Plus, how awesome is that resealable snap closure?
It’s so amazing because it’s chock full of awesome benefits; 20 antioxidants, 16 botanical extracts, 8 minerals and enzymes, making it everything you need in one amazing product. It’s a day & night cream, an eye cream, a serum and a makeup primer all in one. So it makes your skin ready for anything you want to throw at it makeup-wise in one super easy application. Which saves you a bunch of time and money! Love!
So with these 2 fantastic products, I am going to show you how to look fresh faced, clean and awake to tackle your day in 5 minutes flat! Ready?
All you need besides these 2 amazing products is pigment. Pigment is loose color, usually made from minerals. You can wear it a variety of ways and can buy it pretty much anywhere makeup is sold. With that being said, find a natural color that compliments your skin tone, pinks, peaches, golds, and nudes are best for this. You could use blue too if you wanted to have a little fun, but for this tutorial we’re going to stick with naturals.
Start by applying the Mereadesso All-in-One Moisturizer all over your face. If you need to, apply a tinted BB or CC cream all over your face to even out your skin tone.
Take a small amount of the All-in-One moisturizer on your fingers, and dip it into your pigment. You can also sprinkle some pigment onto the moisturizer if you’re afraid of contamination.
Rub your fingertips together and apply this “highlighter” to the apples of your cheeks, blending out on the cheekbone and into the temple.
Next, take your lip treats, and apply generously onto your lips.
Dip your fingertip into the pigment and dab onto your freshly moisturized lips. Rub your lips together to work it in.
Take your moisturizer again and apply a thin layer to your eyelid. Using the same technique as you did with your lips, dab some pigment onto your eyelids and blend outward.
Any left over pigment and moisturizer mix can be dabbed onto the bridge of your nose, above the eyebrow, or on the chin to highlight these areas. Finish off with your favorite mascara, if that’s your thing.
5 minutes bam! You’re done! Now you look bright, highlighted and fresh! The moisturizers freshen up your skin and the shimmer micas in the pigments highlight your skin’s assets, making you appear far more radiant and awake than you maybe are.
This is also a fantastic way to “wear makeup” for those of you who don’t really like the look of a totally made up face. My bathroom lights are very warm, so I also took photos of me in the natural sun.
So fresh and so clean! It was a pony tail kind of day, maybe next week I can do a 5 minute hair tutorial!
