Weekend Beauty

Every weekend we are on the go. (We have kids, people! LOTS of them.)

Sometimes we only have minutes to get ourself ready and out the door in time for an exciting day of running around, so we like to make every one of them count.

After washing our face and applying sunscreen, we like to use a tinted moisturizer because TWO BIRDS! ONE STONE! Our favorites these days are Stila Illuminating Moisturizer and Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer.

If we want a more polished look, we’ll use MAC Studio Fix instead of the tinted moisturizer. In this case, we like to add a little Emulsion de la Mer before the sunscreen.

Our favorite quick and pretty blush of the moment is Lancôme Magique Blush in Pink Parfait. This goes on over our tinted moisturizer, or under our MAC Studio Fix (it’s never good to add cream blush over powder.)

Next we fill in our brows, add a little mascara and some tinted lip balm (either MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner SPF 15 or Clinique SuperBalm Tinted Lip Treatment) and we’re ready for our day.

If we have an extra minute or two, we’ll add some eyeshadow for more definition. Also, once we are out and about, adding a lip gloss from the selection at the bottom of our purse will always make us feel prettier.

And there you have our 5 minute weekend beauty routine.

Now we’re off to watch a cheerleading competition, entertain our weekend guests, and finish the enormous task of securing halloween costumes. Whew!
