Let’s face it- it’s the most wonderful time of the year! But that also translates to the busiest time of year. And on top of all of the cookie baking, present wrapping, and decorating, there’s hardly time to get ourselves ready. Most days you’ll find me rocking a mom bun and yoga pants. On the days I actually do get to leave the house and run errands, I want my makeup routine to be quick and easy. But, I still want to look good too! That’s where Pixi Beauty comes in! you just need a few items for a quick, put together look that you can throw together in 5 minutes or less.
One of the most underrated things that you need to do to look put together is your brows. When my brows look good, I feel good. I love this Endless Brow Gel Pen for filling in my brows and keeping them in place. It stays put and the color is perfect. It’s my new favorite brow product!
I like to throw on a little eyeliner when my eyes are tired looking. I love this Graphic Greige Endless Silky Eye Pen because it’s more subtle than black, but still keeps me looking awake and alert. No shadow needed on those days when you need to get ready in a hurry! This liner has staying power too- once you put it on, it doesn’t go anywhere- which is a problem with a lot of other liners that I’ve tried.
Finish off your eyes with Pixi’s Lengthy Fiber Mascara. I mentioned this mascara in my last monthly favorites post, because it is awesome! Your lashes will look long and beautiful, but not all clumpy and gross. And like the liner, this baby stays. I’m not wiping mascara off of my under-eyes all day when I wear it. A definite must have for your makeup bag.
And lastly, if you want to look like you actually tried, you need something on your lips. But, when you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to line, fill in, and use a lip primer, a lip balm is your best bet. I love these Shea Butter Lip Balms because they’re nourishing but still give a good amount of color to your lips. And unlike most tinted lip balms, they last a reallllly long time. I’ve been wearing the Ripe Raspberry shade, which is a hot pink- and I get compliments every time! Bonus- I don’t have to reapply every 5 minutes.
If your eyes and lips look good, the rest of your face does too. I usually go ahead and wear a tinted moisturizer and powder, but can still have my look done in under 5 minutes. Which is always a plus when there’s a toddler hanging on my leg asking my to hurry up and get ready!
