Time for Beauty A-Z! For Q, I’m discussing quick beauty, rather, products that can streamline your morning!
We’re on the road to Asheville/Highlands this morning! I’m excited to drink a million beers, watch the Derby, and ring in the Dirty (Derby?) 30 on Saturday!
Mornings are hectic for me and everyone else. I wake up around 5:00 every morning, shower, do hair and makeup, cook breakfast, and schedule blog posts all before 6:30. Honestly I’m not a morning person but do love having a few hours to myself. I don’t have kids, but kudos to those of you who manage all of that while trying to keep up with your babies!
To help alleviate the time-crunch in the morning, here are a few multi-use products to save you time:
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer + Treatment: This stuff is amazing. It’s great at erasing dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines. It brightens your whole face.
Benefit Brow Zings: Eyebrow wax, powder, tweezers, two brushes, a mirror, and instructions in one compact. Doesn’t get much easier!
NARS Multiple: all-in-one makeup stick that highlights eyes, cheeks, and lips!
It Cosmetics Vitality Flush Stain Stick Lip & Cheek Reviver: the 4-in-1 product of your dreams: it gives a pop of color to your cheeks and lips while providing you with hydrating and anti-aging benefits. This is next on my list to buy.
Physician’s Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash-Boosting Eyeliner and Serum: I haven’t tried this but I’m intrigued… Boost your lash growth by simply applying eyeliner? Curious to see how it works!
What products do you use to streamline your morning beauty routine?
Today I’m also introducing you to one of my BFFs, Alex from Always, Al! Al was one of the first bloggers to consistently comment on my blog and she remains one of the sincerest, sweetest people I’ve met on this journey. You’ve probably seen her name on here several times because she regularly posts content I love! Alex writes a lifestyle blog and I’m particularly fond of her DIY projects, blogging tutorials, and recipes. She’s also in the midst of planning a gorgeous wedding, so all of you brides-to-be need to follow along with her Wedding Wednesday posts for resources and ideas! I know you’ll love her as much as I do.
Take it away, Al!
Always, Al is a lifestyle blog where I write about all the different things that interest me. I write a little bit about beauty, books and you’ll see the occasional recipe or DIY on there too. I started writing Always, Al as a creative outlet when I was in college, and continued it when I moved down South for work!
What is your must-have beauty or skincare product?
I am absolutely obsessed with argan oil. I received a Josie Maran set for Christmas, and now I can’t get enough. I have combination to oily skin, and this is just the elixir of life for it. I can’t say enough about argan oil for skin, hair, lips. Just everything.
One of the big things for me lately has been wedding planning. We are about to hit the one year mark of being engaged, and now things are starting to get real on the wedding planning front! I’ve been a little bit sporadic on the Wedding Wednesday posts, but I think there will be some DIYs coming! I don’t want to give away anything before the actual wedding on July 2, 2016, but I love to read wedding planning posts, so I am excited to share them.
Isn’t she amazing? The good news is she’ll be back for May, too- hope you’re ready to get super close to her!
What are your plans for the weekend?
