As you can see, I really play up my eyes when I apply makeup. I have very thin lashes and yellow/olive tone skin. My son ended up with long beautiful lashes. So not fair! Over the years, I’ve been able to transform my eyes within minutes. I’ve even applied eye makeup without a mirror while sitting in the back of a moving car (don’t ever try that). I’ve got the basic — errand running, teacher meeting, conference going, lunch with friends and the oh, no I’m late — look down to a science.
My daytime beauty routine takes about 20 minutes (not including hair, which typically gets done the night before when I’m in super-organized mode). I always wash, moisturize with SPF, apply foundation, play up my eyes and eyebrows, wear blush and lip gloss, and set my makeup with pressed powder. And done!
