I've got something to confess....I'm EXTREMELY lazy in the morning!
I'm the girl that sets her alarm for 7am, but hits snooze for 45 minutes and wakes up with barely enough time to get out the door on time. I feel like a mess if I don't put makeup on so I've tried to master an everyday look that doesn't take more than 10 minutes, but looks really put together! If you see me during the week this is probably what my makeup looks like...defined eyebrows, mascara, bronzer/blush & a bright lip color!
Here are a few tricks I've learned...highlighter can be your best friend when you didn't get as much sleep as you should have! Applying it on your brow bones & in the inner corners of your eyes make you look awake! Number two, always wear blush, it makes you look alive! Lastly, curl your lashes before applying mascara, it will make your eyes look more open!
What does your everyday makeup look like?
