Carpool beauty routine | 5 step, 5 minute make-up

March 7, 2018


I’ve been asked a lot about my morning routine, and let me tell you with 3 kids under 5 it revolves around getting 2 out the door to 2 different schools before 8:15 am. Because I’m not a morning person I take in every last ounce of sleep and give myself no more than 5 minutes in the morning which involves splashing water on my face, a quick swoosh of moisturizer and Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30 and I’m out the door. I dedicate two morning carpool lines for make-up and have edited that process down to 5 products! I find that the days where I make time for a quick beauty fix I’m more confident and thus happier, so really try to put my best foot forward as efficiently as possible!

So here’s the drill…..

Step 1: I apply Guerlain Terracotta bronzer to cheekbones, nose, forehead and chin. I have no idea what the rules of bronzer are but I feel like it does the trick.

Step 2: I use Bobbi Brown blush in shade nectar to give a little rosiness to my cheeks. Even with a quick makeup routine I think blush is so worth it because it brightens your whole face and makes you look more awake. And with a teething baby, I’ll take all of the help I can get in the “look like you are rested” department.

Step 3: I think everyone can agree mascara is actually a game changer when it comes to looking dead or alive in the morning so that is my irreplaceable 4th step. For years I have used Le Volume de Chanel in 10 Noir and I think it’s safe to say it is my Holy Grail product.

Step 4: Moving on to lips! I use Tom Ford’s Paper Doll lipstick which is my favorite but also a splurge, so for anyone who isn’t wanting to spend a pretty penny on lipstick I’ve heard NYX Couture is a great dupe!

Step 5: Last, but definitely not least I seal everything in with my Supergoop! 100% Mineral Invincible Setting Powder. This is a dream for someone like me who does their makeup on the go because it’s a powder, but it applies mess free since the product comes out of the attached brush. I love how well it sets my carpool make-up in place, but also provides the benefit of an SPF 45. It comes in 4 shades, is mineral based which is awesome for my sensitive skin. I also reapply this product throughout the day for continued SPF coverage! As Baz Lurman says, Wear Sunscreen!
