The All I have is Five Minutes face!

I know you’re busy were all busy especially around the holidays. Lately I have bumped into clients out and about town who come or have come to my makeup studio in sunny Florida. However, they cover their faces and tell me please don’t look at me. I look awful. That’s kinda sad don’t you think?

If all you have is five minutes here is what you need.

A sheer foundation like Not Your Mothers Foundation or a powder foundation in a compact. Apply a sheer amount on your face staying away from your eyes and lips.

Next,blend a dash of concealer in a lipstick tube.Apply where you need coverage…eyelids, under eye and on sun or red spots.

A dash of  eye shadow all over the lid…Look for a shade like a Champagne,Pink Champagne or a soft beige gold hue.Yes all you will need is one shade. NOT two or three.

YES, mascara is  optional but liner is a must…it not only lines your eyes and accents them it also can create the look like you applied mascara but it is only eye liner eye pencil you have on. You actually don’t need both.

A kiss of blush or powder bronzer applied with a fan brush to give a warmth to your complexion.

A swipe of lipstick,lip gloss or lip balm…wraps up the look.

See how fast and  so EASY this 5 minute face can be to do? There’s no excuse why you can’t do this too.

My model is my girlfriend Nancy doesn’t she look awesome and pretty naturally?

If you have a holiday party to do and want to look good too…with not a lot of time involved…go for it!

Share with me,chat with me…I LOVE hearing from you and your sharing a beauty secret or two with me.

Hope you are enjoying the beauty of this holiday season.

Do you have issues with…Blush?

Think pink Kabuki travel bukiMaybe it is the shape of your brush?

The biggest beauty mistake women seem to make is using way too much blush! They simply don’t know what is the correct brush or use a heavy hand with that brush!

Here is my guide to show you how to apply it the right way and how to select the perfect brush for your blush.

Basic Blush Brush-this is a standard shape brush with a medium to long handle. If you bought it on the run and at a non-fancy big box or dollar store it is NOT going to give you a beautiful blush look.

Angle Brush-This brush helps to apply blush to create a contoured slimming the face effect with your blush. if you can bowl your face down an alley this brush is for you.Unless of course you like a more round face.

Blush/ Bronzing Blush Brush-This flat top beauty is usually perfect for applying bronzer or a kiss of blush color

Fan Brush-This helps to apply the precise kiss of color.Not too much not too soft. I highly recommend this brush for blush.

4 in 1 Blush- This brush is a multi-tasker for blush and other sections of the face too. It is must have in your brush wardrobe! 

And if you get a brush inside the blush compact…Do yourself a favor and throw it out !!!

OR in a pinch  use it as an eye shadow or  highlighter brush. Just remember the shape is off and the quality is not the best.

FYI

The brush pictured is a travel brush for POWDER but I often see ladies in powder rooms using it for blush. Of course the blush looks over done and a hot mess!

I love this brush but only use it for what it is intended for…loose or pressed powder!

Anetta's Photography and shared Polish yummy dish

You may not like your freckles

You may not like your lips

You may not like the way your skin looks

You may not like your short eyelashes

You may not like your toes

You may not like the size of your jeans

I wish I wasn’t so short,I wish my hair texture was thicker… but this is the way I was born.

I LOVE what God and my parents gave me.These features are me! I don’t plan on having cosmetic plastic surgery to change me,nor tattooing myself and covering my beauty.

This new year let’s make ourselves look and FEEL good by eating better,walking or bike riding more with a dash of a gorgeous lipstick, a kiss from the sun from a walk on the beach or from a bronzer compact and a pretty nail polish.

Love the way you look and if you don’t there are so many wonderful beauty products and tools that can help you along the way. So relax (or start) today and start fresh in the new year starting tomorrow.

You have the power in you.Take better care of your body,mind and spirit too.

Who runs your world? You do!

No matter who you are you are beautiful in your own way too.

Be YOU-tiful! You are a beautiful miracle from God.
