Slapping on makeup in the morning can be a simple and easy way to give yourself a mood and confidence boost! But what if you have no idea what you’re doing? Check out my video for an easy makeup tutorial that takes 5 minutes or less.

You guys are probably more than aware that I am NOT a beauty or makeup blogger…there was a time when I spent more than 5 minutes on my face or hair but this season of life (WAHM, pregnant with her 9th kid) is NOT it!
But that doesn’t mean I want to look homeless when I leave the house. I often get people telling me “You look GREAT for having 8 kids!” but what I hear behind these words is “You don’t look like a mental patient in a frayed bathrobe! Good for you!” How about just wanting to look good, period?
I’ve been relying on this super basic and easy makeup routine for years, and while I’m CERTAIN I’m not doing all the proper techniques or using the fanciest makeup, I love it and it makes me feel great about myself in 5 minutes or less!
Check out the quick video below and then let me know if you’ve nailed a daily makeup look that you love or if you still struggle!
Products I used:
Elta MD Tinted Moisturizer with SPF
NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer (I use Creme Brulee)
Elf Instant Lift EyeBrow Pencil (in Neutral Brown) This doesn’t last long but it’s cheap so stock up!
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner (Black)
Benefit They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara (Jet Black)
But I also often use the following mascara and might love it just a tad more!
Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara (Black)
NARS The Multiple Stick (Maui)
When I run out of this, I also use this NARS blush palette which is great!
MAC Lip Pencil (Redd)
MAC Red Lipstick (Russian Red)
Looks like Nordstrom also has this amazing red lipstick trio from MAC!
Flekk Eyeshadow Palette and Brush Set (Fancy)
