I’m not gonna let the cat outta’ bag and say who specifically asked this question – but I will say it’s been asked more than once. And when I am going to my 9-5 I often see women doing their makeup at stop lights, parking lots and gas stations. Let’s be real – IT HAPPENS! Let have a quick discussion about how you can have a good 5 minute makeup routine in the car.
5 Minute Makeup Routine In the Car – Why?
Often times, we are running late for an appointment (or work), time has gotten away from us, and we still need to look presentable. Well here are 4 items to keep in your middle console or to-go makeup bag so you can enhance that beauty on the go!
1. Powder/Cream Foundation
Keep a foundation in a compact. That is your best bet. They are totally mobile and usually come with a sponge to apply. You can swipe the product on your face just where you need it, or you can apply all over.
If you have oily skin – stick with a pressed powder. It is a whole lot less messier than mineral powder and will fight your oils for you.
If you are more dryer – you can use a cream to powder foundation.
Eyeliner adds definition to your eyes and will make them look more awake and alive. If your eyes water easily, grab a waterproof liner. You can skip the eye shadow all together and use fun colors with the eyeliner. Some popular colors are deep purple, dark green and dark brown.
I personally believe blush warms up your face and makes you look more radiant. When I go without makeup, if I apply only 2 things, it is blush and lip gloss. So, that’s what I’m recommending for you too. The nice thing about blush is if it is a pressed powder you can apply with your finger tips or with a brush.
Blush also comes as a lip and cheek combo product and is called a “lip/cheek stain.” This is swiped on your cheeks like chap-stick and you can blend it in with your finger tips.
4. Lip Product
Here you can be creative. What ever feels most like you. You can apply your favorite lipstick or lip gloss on the go. You can also try a cheek/lip stain and see how you like that. So can swipe on your favorite lippie as you are going in to that next important appointment.
If you can apply those 4 and still have time remaining you can apply your favorite mascara. And if you would like more individualized information, let’s set up a call, I’d love to chat with you. www.karirobertsmua.com/call.
