5 Minute Face

5 Minute Face

Life is crazy, am I right? Everyone is busy and rushing around to get everything accomplished for the day. It always starts with getting ready in the morning. Even though I am home most days with the kids, I still like to “get ready.” I am not saying I like to actually get normal clothes on, but a fresh face and brushed hair is a win for me ;)

I have been doing this “5-Minute Face” for a while now, and I love it! I am not a make-up artist by any means, but I know what works for me and I have become very efficient at it. I also like to keep stuff easy and simple, so how I get ready in the morning should be no different!


1// Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation. Full coverage and super easy to apply. When used with my foundation brush I got off Amazon [Prime] it allows me to use less foundation vs with my fingers. BUT read until the end... there is a way to get a FREE foundation brush ;) 


2// Touch Up Concealer Pen. This is a MUST! It hides my dark circles and any blemishes. Some days I have just worn this and I am good to go.


3// Color Define Brow Pencil. This one took a while for me to jump on the bandwagon with. I saw way too many scary eyebrows out there, that I was scared to do my own. And again, I am not savvy with make up so it made me nervous. However, I just went for it and it was super easy to use, and did not cause clown eyebrows ;)


4// Lengthening OR NEW Volume Mascara. This step I have had to skip the past few months because I joined the eyelash extension train. When I didn’t have them, I used the lengthening buildable mascara and LOVED it! They just launched a volume mascara and some of the girls on our team posted pictures, it looks awesome!


5//Powder Blush Duo. This was one of my first makeup products from Beautycounter! I saw how it helps define and bring out your cheek bones, so I had to try it. It is again, easy to use and the dark under your cheek bones really helps give it that pop!


6// Lip Gloss. I don’t even know where to begin with the lip gloss. I have loved every single shade they offer. I will say Fig has been my most go-to one for date nights/nights out. You really can’t go wrong with any of them.



I can confidently say, I get that all put on in under 5 minutes. I spray some Rose Water on to seal it and I’m ready to go…. Pour some cereal and watch Ninja Turtles ;)

The best part, it is all part of a promotion going on where you can get all SIX of these items for a deep discount when purchasing the “5- Minute Face" PLUS a free foundation brush! It is a great way to start switching over your make up products to safer options for you. Plus, you get the chance to try out the new volume mascara! My daughter has become obsessed with putting on make-up with me, so I can allow her to do so, without a concern. Need help picking out your colors/tones? Shoot me an email and I would be happy to help you with that. Beautycounter also has a 60 day return policy NO questions asked.
