I’ve always been a speedy one when it comes to getting ready for the day. Growing up, my Dad and I were the ones always waiting on my Mom and sis… who are both two ladies who surprise me with their ability to wash, blow dry, style and put on a full face of makeup everyday. They always look amazing. While I on the other hand, roll with day old hair in order to sneak in a few extra zzz’s (hats help too!). When I lived in San Francisco and commuted to Palo Alto for work, I really mastered my speedy beauty routine–when in a pinch, here’s how I freshen things up and am out the door in less than 5!
I had crazy curly hair in high school and college and in the past few years it’s changed back to the looser waves I had as a little girl. (Thank you to the powers above!) I’m loving that I can let my hair dry naturally when I have time and, since second day hair is always the best for me, hitting it again in the morning with a few curls around the face for extra oomph always looks best. I’ll plug the curling iron in while doing my makeup… and finish with a spritz of texture spray (also love).
Gloss on the lips if I feel like I need color (currently obsessed with this new-to-me line).
And finish with a brush and darkening of the brows.
All about a fresh faced look–no eye makeup for everyday. Tousle the hair, the messier the better and out the door.
