I make my mornings before work very busy. I work out, I read, I clean sometimes, I watch reality tv, I blog, I read blogs. It’s when I’m my busiest. I am a morning person and I just don’t really sleep in.
Being a morning person, and not needing to leave for work until 20 after 11 on most days, I crack up thinking about how I’m still almost always rushing to get ready for work even though I’ve been awake for 5 hours already. I’m throwing together an outfit, brushing my teeth while putting on my shoes and running all over the place making my lunch and looking for my keys.
On those days, I literally do my make up in under two minutes. I examine my biggest flaws, and plan my attack. I pick the most essential items and run away with them. Here they are.
Under eye hideous bags of destruction.
Nothing makes me feel older than I am and more poorly rested than under the eye bags. For that f-bomb of a problem, I use the big guns known as Make Up Forever. This stuff is no joke. I got it at Sephora. I put a tiny dot under each eye and pat it on until it’s all blended.
On to mascara. I rarely leave the house without mascara. I only put it on my top lashes and I only do about 4 or 5 swipes on each eye. Even though I don’t use all that much, I just can’t imagine wandering this city with naked looking eyes. Ew. Just ew. I love Smashbox because it has a wonderful huge wand and it just applies so perfectly. I love this mascara.
I have never known what this is called. I guess Rosebud? I just call it my lip tin. I love this because it smells and tastes nice, but also because it was one of my first beauty products. I remember using this when I was a little girl. Only the case had a sliding lid. I used it until there was nothing left. Then I cleaned out all the slime and kept secret treasures in there. I bought this at Anthropology for basically double the normal cost, but you can also get some online for sure. I guess just google “Lip Tin from Reagan’s childhood”.
There you have it! My quickiest of the quicks make up routine!
