Makeover Monday | Jan

In favor of keeping it real over here, I did a little makeover on myself to give you all an idea of what everyday looks like for me.


Makeup took about 5 minutes minus mascara. I was trying out a new one that has a bit of a learning curve so that added an extra 3-4 minutes. Hair took about 15 minutes and it was all done together because the babies decided to sleep until 9:00am. What?!! Otherwise this would be spread out over breakfast and naptime.

My Goals: even out a droopy eyelid (left eye), look like I got more than 6 hours of sleep, fake-it-til-you-make-it, and get it all done before a kid needs something.

Makeup: Tined Moisturizer | all-over mineral powder foundation | blush on apples of the cheeks only | copper eye shadow to balance out eyelids | skin tone shimmer shadow on lid and brow to blend | bright, sheer pink lip gloss so I look alive | mascara after curling lashes


Hair took about 15 minutes. This is an everyday style for me because it lasts 2-3 days before I wash and do it again. It was already dry so I did a little Aquage Sea Extend Silkening Oil then curled with my super fancy Conair clamp curling iron. If I have to blow it dry, add another 20 minutes. Then it's not everyday. I'm currently in a wash at night, curl in the morning phase of life. Thanks tiny humans.

Big kudos to these two movie stars. They passed on some pretty good hair genes that can handle washing every 3-4 days. Thanks Mom and Dad!
