5 minute makeup!

I'm not one to leave the house without at least a little makeup on ...but with a little one kicking around it's hard to find time to do myself up as much as I used to!  

My 5 minute makeup routine consists of tinted moisturiser, a concealer  for under my eyes and  "illuminating" serum, mascara, a nude gloss and a pale eyeshadow all over my lids and brow bone.

It's a nice natural look, that plays up my skin tone but I'm curious what others do...?


What do you do when you have to get ready in a flash?

I only do mascara & eyeliner in the summer, since I swim alot & the heat makes you sweat it off.

Right now I'm addicted to the VS PRO radiant Face illuminator. You can get it online. It's nice and natural looking and feels great on my skin.

Right now it's moisturizer, serum, powder foundation and lip gloss. Every three to four weeks I get lash extensions, so there's no need for mascara. If I am seeing people for meetings, I add eyeliner and blush. I also have a tinted moisturizer that I use from time to time.

Eyelash extensions are a fabulous way to look good and save time. I was wearing them for a few months and just recently decided to give my eyes a break.

I am curious about eyelash extensions if you dont mind my asking APPROX how much does it cost to get them and how long do they last?

I live in Canada so I'm not sure if prices are the same in the states. I've seen a wide range in eyelash extension price the cheapest being 60$ the most expensive at $300. I would pick a place that either specializes in eyelash extensions or a reputable salon. Try the $150 range. You don't really want to cheap out with your eyes. Mine lasted about 1 month but some started to fall out before then. They always say they last longer ... But not for me!
