My Quick and Easy Morning Beauty Routine

I’d like to thank bareMinerals for sponsoring this post.

I’m not much of a girlie-girl these days. I don’t have a shopping addiction and my closet isn’t lined with shoes. With that said, makeup is something that I’ve always loved.

I actually really enjoy that quiet time in front of the mirror in the mornings, and when I was younger, I used to spend a lot of time getting my makeup just the way I wanted it. Now that I’m a mother of two rambunctious little ones, my mirror time has been cut dramatically.

My mornings are chaotic and I just don’t have a lot of extra time to primp. These days, I have to be really picky about the products I use, because I need to create a fresh face in ten minutes or less.

My morning beauty routine is pretty basic, but it gets the job done. I start every day with a warm mug of green tea. It wakes me up and helps focus my thoughts on the tasks ahead.

By the time I’m at the mirror with a clean face, I reach for my first line of defense. I’m absolutely loving Complexion Rescue from bareMinerals.

I’ve been using bareMinerals since I was in my early 20’s. It’s really the only line of cosmetics that I’ve stuck with through all of the changes that life as brought my way.

I just recently started using their Complexion Rescue product that I picked up at my local ULTA.

It’s a mineral-based formulation that combines the best of a BB, a CC cream. The light, tinted moisturizer provides hydrates my skin and protects it throughout the day with SPF 30 sun protection. I love the dewy look it gives my skin.

This product does a great job multi-tasking to take care of all my morning face issues. I love that it helps cover the dark circles under my eyes, my blemishes and it evens my skin tone. All this while being super lightweight and easy to apply.

On my busiest days, Complexion Rescue along with some mascara and lip gloss are all I need to create a bright, fresh and pretty face. When I have a bit more time, I love layering a bit of bareMinerals foundation on my skin for fuller coverage. I add a little blush to brighten my face, and of course, my trusty pop of color via my fave pink lip balm.

I love this video from bareMinerals that really highlights a morning in the life of a real mom.

Whether you’re a total girlie-girl or just need a product to get the job done, bareMinerals Complexion Rescue is a real winner.
