I’m a Texan, born and raised. I’ve always been taught to put your “face on” before you go conquer your day. Even if it’s just mascara, lip gloss, and a pair of earrings, I believe there’s something to walking out in public with your makeup on. You stand taller and it does wonders for you confidence. Plus, at the end of the day, I love feeling pretty when my husband walks in the door after a long day at work.
In these days of WFH (or Work From Home for all you non-millennials like me), I promise you that if you (at the very least) stick with mascara, lip gloss, and earrings, you’ll notice the difference it makes in how you feel about productivity and being ready for anything that comes your way.
Here’s everything I do to “put my face on” in the morning:
1. I am officially in LOVE with Lashify lashes. They last up to a week, you can wear them in the water, and their glue is the absolute best (does not bother my eyes and actually works). Remember me talking about just have mascara on with lip gloss and earrings? These lashes me look and feel put together and eliminate 2-3 steps from my make-up routine, saving me TIME. 
2. If you do not have a primer in your routine, this right here is my little secret as to how my makeup doesn’t moved an inch, even after a day full of calls, meetings, Facebook lives, course recordings, and appointments. My NV Primer also helps to prime skin, lips, eyebrows, eyelids, and eyelashes in one simple and quick spray. 
3. I recently found a very revolutionary foundation that I’m obsessed with. NV BB Perfecting Mist Foundation is a spray - yeap, a spray - that gives my skin an airbrushed look and LASTS all day! It also has a bunch of good stuff in it to act as a helper to my skincare. The best part of all? It goes on in SECONDS! 
4. I absolutely love my IT cosmetics concealer. I love that it’s a cream-like formula, giving me coverage without getting cakey.
5. Over the years, through trial and error, I’ve found my long-standing faves. My MAC blush is one of them. I’ve tried other colors and brands, but I just keep coming back to this one. Just the right amount of color on my face!
6. Eyeshadow pods… now again, I stick with my tried and true MAC colors. I love how the color stays on my eyes all day long!
7. I’ve used Kat Von D eyeliner for YEARS, and brown has been my color of choice. Black looks a little too intense for me, and I’ve always just loved how the brown is a great definer without being so harsh.
8. If you have not ever tried the Shiseido eye lash curler, you’re seriously missing out! When I do not have my lashes on, this is a game changer for my natural lashes. Trust me, you’ll thank me for it!
9. I top off my look with Chanel Mascara in black. I’ve tried ALL the brands and ALL the formulas. My niece, Jade, turned me on to this one, and I promise, it’s worth every penny!
