A Busy Girl’s Makeup Guide:

We all have the same elusive dream, don’t we? The dream of having nothing but time to devote to our beauty routines and leave the house every morning looking perfectly polished. Then reality comes along and tears every thing to shreds, including the hair I diligently washed the night before, so that I officially look like a walking tornado barging out the door to make it to work in time.

I always try my very best but just can’t seem to gather up enough extra minutes in my morning routine to glisten like a Hollywood vixen. So I cheat with these fabulous on-the-go products that every working girl needs:

 

Foundation:

Apply foundation evenly and in seconds with Maybelline New York Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation, $11. Offered in 12 heavenly shades, the lightweight formula leaves skin looking fresh and flawless.

Beauty Alert: When applying foam-based foundations, use less than you anticipate needing, the foaming agents allow the makeup to go farther than you expect.

 

Cheek & Eyeshadow:

Having makeup products that can be on double duty will save you time and money. The Too Faced Candlelight Glow Duo is an inspired powder that offers two unique shades that can be blended or used individually.

Apply the rose shade to the apples of your cheek to illuminate and brighten. Then apply the golden hue under your brow bone and the inner corner of your eyes for instant wide-awake eyes that shine.

Lashes:

Help your lashes last all day with Cover Girl LashBlast Mascara. Add volume and length to your lashes even in a rush. This mascara continues to impress me, plus it is hypoallergenic and suitable for contact lens wearers.
