"I’m sharing my top 4 tips to applying makeup when time isn’t letting me have even 15 minutes! I’ve come to truly lean on these 4 time saving tips by preparing my skin and having the right tools by my side. I’m sharing exactly what I do whether I’m off to work or with my family, and I hope you can use them like I do on the daily."
1. Have A Skincare Routine You LOVE
The key to applying your makeup when you are pressed for time and want to make sure it’s gorgeous and lasts is actually to make sure your skin is well prepped.
I have a 3-step routine after I cleanse which include Vintner's Daughter Active Treatment Essence, Sunday Riley CEO Rapid Flash Brightening Serum, and Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum followed by Dr. Barbara Sturm's Sun Drops. In a few short minutes my skin is clean, nourished and ready for makeup.
2. Multi-Purpose Foundation
There is a reason why I LOVE Gee Beauty Prime Skin, and the formula smooths out my skin and gives it a gorgeous glow. Prime Skin acts as both a Primer and Foundation so I get the coverage I love with the lasting effects that I need. (As a busy mom and business woman, I cannot touch up too often during the day).
3. Brightening Concealer
I’m absolutely obsessed with the Gee Beauty Dual Action Brightening Concealer because it’s both hydrating, brightening + correcting.
I apply it under my eyes, on my eyes as a base shadow and then I use it along the center of my face to enhance dimension and brightness where I need it.
4. Blush, Eyes + Lips, 3 In 1!
One of our biggest launches for Gee Beauty this year is our Cheek Sticks which define multi-purpose makeup! Launching in 3 stunning shades, this is the ultimate makeup time saving trick because I use these sticks as a blush, lipstick and eyeshadow.
