Get Ready With Me: Quick and Simple, Everyday Makeup| 2016

Hey Loves,

How are you all doing? I am gearing up for my son’s birthday, he turns 2 on the 10th of August….Yay. It is so surreal, I still remember finding out I was pregnant, going through the whole
pregnancy, his 1st year birthday etc. It all seems like yesterday, I am so grateful to God for keeping and blessing us.

Today I have a quick and easy makeup look to share with you guys. This is the look I throw on during the week, It is my GET UP, LOOK FAB & GO look. As a mum to a boisterous toddler with a very demanding job, I do not have that much time in the mornings to get all dolled up.

So I came up with this easy but efficient makeup look that can easily be transformed into a FULL GLAM look by adding some false lashes and a sexy red lipstick or a fun look look by adding a quirky coloured lipstick.

The key to this look is getting your base right, a flawless looking skin will make the difference between a well put together look and a rushed job. No one wants to look rushed and haggard right? This look takes me 20mins max in the mornings and this is due to loads of practice and sticking to whatever makeup products that work. No time to test out that product you have been itching to use… I also prep my products the night before; sharpening any pencils, washing any makeup sponges etc. Doing this will definitely shave off any wasted time.
