Look Awake and glowing in 3 minutes or less!
The biggest challenge for new moms –including me– is to leave the house looking ‘somewhat’ put-together and awake! I recently shared my quick and easy 3 minute morning makeup routine with well.ca. This routine is a daily life saver to help even out my complexion, brighten dark circles, and add a little rosey dew to my skin!
Step 1: Mix 1 pump of tinted sunscreen or moisturizer with 1 pump of foundation. I find this combo adds just enough extra coverage. Try: Consonant The Perfect Sunscreen + Elate Foundation (or my other favourite is Sappho Essential Foundation.)
Step 2: Dab a brightening concealer in the corners and half way under each eye. Gently pat the concealer until blended. Avoid applying a full circle of concealer under the eye–or you’ll look like a racoon! You can also dab a bit of concealer on the brow bone to lift the eye. Try: Pacifica Dreamlit Under Eye Brightener or Fitglow Eyebright.
Step 3: Use a ‘multi-stick’ to add colour to cheeks and lips. Swipe or dab the multi-stick onto the cheek bones, blending upwards. Follow-up with a swipe to the lips. You can even apply a small dab of colour to the upper centre of the lid to open and brighten the eye. Try: W3ll People Nudist Multi-Use Cream Stick
Step 4: (Optional) Add a coat or two of mascara to the top eye lids to make your eyes really pop, or apply a coat of bright lipstick (my personal fav!).
