My day job is about to get pretty busy, crazy, and amazingly fun. I work in a local movie production company, and our next film stars Miles Teller and Aaron Eckhart. As if things couldn’t get cooler, one of our Executive Producers is Martin Scorcese.  Since I never know who will be in the office on a particular day, I need to make sure that I am always wearing makeup so that I am presentable. I thought I’d share with you some of my simple work day beauty tips

I don’t go full out glam for the office, and try to keep my look simple, and efficient. Mornings generally have me making breakfast for Itty Bitty, throwing on my makeup, brush my hair (which is SUPER smooth and amazing thanks to my keratin concept treatment!) toss on a dress, and run out the door to bring him to the nanny. I even sacrifice a hair style for a little bit of makeup. Ponytails are still in, right?

Here’s my go-to get ready makeup routine – and all I use are just 5 items!

Tall Dad always does the first diaper change and dresses Itty Bitty in the morning. While this is going on, I put on my makeup.  Right now I am loving the Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Liquid Makeup – it’s light and wears like a BB Cream, and also has SPF 20!  On busy mornings, I don’t have time or patience to use makeup brushes, so I prefer to dab the makeup with my fingers. 

This makeup evens out my skin tone and still lets my freckles shine through! 

To help set the foundation, I always make sure to use setting powder – like this Shine Control. I like that it doesn’t make me look like a corpse, like other powders do. This one is invisible, sets my foundation so that it doesn’t run or crease into my wrinkles (damn aging!) and keeps me shine free throughout the day. I like to keep an extra case in my purse, just in case I need a touch up here or there.

Next, I like to bring out my eyes with the eyeliner. I line my top and lower eyelids with Neutrogena’s Nourishing Eyeliner. It goes on smooth and best of all – doesn’t melt off!  These eyeliners are infused with olive oil and shea butter – which is super nourishing for the delicate skin around your eyes. 

If I didn’t have my awesome eyelash extensions, I would coat both my top and lower lashes with mascara. Now, I sometimes just sweep a little bit on my lower lashes towards the outer corners to give my eyes a little pop.

Last, but certainly not least, I need to take care of my lips.  For some reason, my allergies have already begun (can someone please tell my body that fall is NOT here yet?!?) and I seem to always be partched. These MoisutreSmooth Color sticks have shea butter and fruit extracts – so they mositurize while giving color.  My color of choice is soft raspberry. It just sounds yummy, right?

I carry around the shine powder and color stick throughout the day for the occasional touchup, and they are also in my bag in case Tall Dad calls me up for an impromptu date night!
My inspration for this makeup tutorial is thanks to the gorgeous Hayden Panettiere, the star from the show Nashville.
