It wasn't all that long ago that my morning beauty routine consisted of a bit of powder foundation, some eyeliner and some mascara. I didn't even wear lip gloss or chap stick or anything, unless I was heading out for a night on the town with the Hubs. Then a dear friend of mine said to me, "Tiffany, you're 30 years old! You need to do a little something to enhance your natural beauty!" Or something to that effect. lol Now, I still don't do a whole lot to this face of mine, but I like to think my face looks a bit more put together these days then it did a year or so ago, thanks to my friend.

I still like to keep my beauty routine minimal because I only have a small window of time reserved for getting ready for work. You moms know what I'm talking about, right?!?
I use a little of the eye primer, which is like a miracle cure for dark circles! I put a little bit of that under my eyes and it covers up those dark circles that pop up when I have sleepless nights with sick kids. Then I brush on some loose powder foundation and swipe on a little bit of that shimmery off white shadow. Next comes the eyeliner and mascara and I'm ready to head out the door. Or at least I'm ready to quickly throw on my own clothes so that I can quickly throw my kids into theirs. And then I'm ready to head out the door!
Are you wondering when I apply the lip gloss and lip definer? That usually doesn't happen until I'm at a red light. =)
My makeup routine itself only takes me about 5 to 7 minutes. From start to finish, including a shower, hair and all that jazz, it takes me about 25 minutes to get ready for work.
What does your makeup routine include? For those of you that are moms, did you notice that you started weeding things out of your routine after the kids came along? How long does it usually take you to get ready for the day?
