If you’ve ever had the thought “Oh Crap!! I hit the off button – not snooze,” then this post is for you. I, for one, have experienced that more times than I’d like to admit (I’m not a morning person – at all). For those of you who are like me, the “5 Minute Face” is a major beauty saver.
Why the “5 Minute Face”
I’m a strong believer in looking your best whenever you leave the house. I mean, if you’re going to be out-and-about, you might as well put your best face forward, right? We all have those days where we just don’t want to be bothered; however, a classy lady should always strive to be presentable. After all, you never know who you’ll bump into…
What got me started with the “5 Minute Face”
The goal is to look polished without taking hours of primping to get there. But, who has that much time anymore? And like I said, I’m not a great candidate for “early to rise” anyway – so I need all the time-saving help I can get. The need for this was cemented one morning before
a major meeting…
You see, when I first learned to apply makeup there were at least 15 steps that had to be done to put on my makeup… and that was before hair! Needless to say, I was not a fan of makeup. But, I did it anyway – after all, I had to put my best face out there. And being in the corporate world – being polished was a must.
Well, this particular morning, I was running late and nervous about a presentation. I ran in the door and got straight to work on prepping for the meeting. The good news: I wasn’t presenting the meeting – just setting up. The bad news: I had one eye completely done, one eye only half done, w-a-y too heavy blush and a line of demarcation. (That’s where you can see your foundation at your jawline – usually from using the wrong color and/or not blending enough.)
I was so embarrassed.
From that day on, I not only took the time to be sure everything was finished (!), but looked for ways to reduce the number of steps needed to get the look I wanted.
