Things have gotten a bit extra busy at my house with the onset of summer. Which I hadn’t thought was even possible, but apparently is. Which means that I’ve found a whole new definition of running around! While running from activity to activity, squeezing in days at work, and trying to do things like work out (which is new for me, but I’ve started doing Essentrics and love it), I’ve found that I have even less time to get myself ready for the day than I did before.
On those crazy busy days, I’ve decided that a “less is more” look works for me a bit better than I thought. The keys for feeling like myself (and pulled together) seem to be some sort of coverage on my face, a little bit of color with lipstick (I used Iced Iris in these pictures, and then that same lipstick as blush, and some emphasis on my eyes. Usually for my eyes I settle for the BB Cream on the lids, sometimes if I can find it quickly enough, I’ll use an eye shadow stick on my lids, and then I finish up with some mascara.
That’s it. It’s a whole new (and more minimalist) me! It only takes a few minutes, I can wear it for pretty much the whole day. I love the Iced Iris lip color as a pretty light and neutral pink lip color in the morning, but in the afternoon I usually punch it up a bit with Fuchsia Flood.
What’s your go-to look when you have a crazy day planned and not much time? I want to know what your bare minimum, feeling like yourself and still made up look is like! Let me know in the comments.
Here I am rocking my minimal look right after working out.
