We are in the prime of Summer right now and I am getting busier than ever. My son starts his first season of full-contact football this week and I have a slew of doctors appointments to usher both of my children off to in the coming weeks. I don’t even want to mention all of the thousands of things on my to-do list. I am going to take you through 5 things that get me out the door in 5 minutes or less so that I am able to go be super-mom. Four of those things are in my makeup routine and one is 5-hour ENERGY® shots!
By the time I get up and get my kids fed and dressed and ready to go and experience their day I am usually left pretty worn out. I take a 5-hour ENERGY® shot and then begin my quick and easy beauty routine. I like the 5-hour ENERGY® shots because they give me energy without making me shake and get jittery. They also don’t have any sugar and only contain 4 calories. Woo hoo for being able to work on my girlish summer figure.
The first part of my beauty routine consists of perfecting my complexion. I recently picked up Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid-Touch Foundation and I have been loving it. It offers a lightweight, natural coverage. Perfect for everyday wear.
The one truly exciting thing about this foundation is wand that has a point in the shape of a teardrop. It is meant to act like a dropper to drip the foundation onto our fingers without having to touch the opening of the bottle to remove product. Very hygienic for those people, like myself, that enjoy applying foundation with my fingertips. It also cuts down on the time spent on your beauty routine and allows you to get out the door to live life.
One of my favorite “tricks” to looking alive and eel, like I have had all the sleep and have all the energy, is applying a little blush. One of my absolute favorites these days is the Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink. It appears very shimmery in the pan but when applied onto the cheek it gives a beautiful satiny, luminous quality.
Sometimes I will actually apply a touch of blush onto my eyelids or in the crease. I like to add a touch of color but be careful using blush around the eyes because pink, or redness, around the eye can actually give you the appearance of being worn out if overdone. I like this one because it is subtle. The finishing touch on the eyes is a great mascara. One that I enjoy a great deal is the L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Waterproof Mascara. It has a VERY interesting applicator and I have actually previously reviewed it. Check it out for yourself.
The perfect finishing touch to your beauty routine is to add a little color to your lips. With the rest of your face at a bare minimum you can now make the ultimate choice – “My Lips But Better” or bold. Both of these looks are beautiful and require the same amount of effort. Red lips can be scary for some but these Maybelline Color Elixirs are extremely pigmented, are comfortable on the lips, and easy to apply. I am in love with the formula and the fantastic shade range. Another added benefit is that the applicator is super fluffy! Who doesn’t enjoy fluffy applicators?
You know… I started taking 5-hour ENERGY® shots a couple years ago after my husband introduced me to them. He saw me trying to manage two jobs while also keeping my at-the-time 6 year old son organized and on top of everything. He said that I should try them because they are better than the other energy drinks I was buying at the time. They contain a blend of B-vitamins, amino acids, and essential nutrients. There’s zero sugar, carbs, or herbal stimulants. They also contain the same amount of caffeine as a cup of the leading premium coffee! YAY for that! I stock up on 5-hour ENERGY® shots at my local CVS because they have a large variety of flavors and they come in all different sized value packs.
