Favorite Beauty Product

I’m pretty minimalist when it comes to my morning routine.  Having a 3 year old to also get ready cuts into any time that is spent on applying lip and eye liner and three shades of eye shadow.  That’s for date night and the weekend!  Also, I have to admit, I don’t like a full face of make up for the office.  I want to look clean, presentable, and ready to work.

The one product I absolutely adore and must use every morning is Benefit Cosmestic Eye Bright pencil.  I started using this about two years ago when I wanted to always ensure I looked well rested even if that was far from the truth with a busy 18 month old and a deployed husband.  I line my lower lash line, dot some in the corners of my eye, and then smooth with my ring finger.  (No one wants pink eye lashes.)  Amazing!

And it gets better.  Just recently I stumbled across this video from Wayne Goss on extra ways to use a highlighter, specifically Yves Saint Laurent ‘Touche Eclat’.  I was inspired by the video to try some of his tips with my trusty Benefit pink pencil and I’m never going back.  I quickly draw a line with the pencil down the center of my nose, across the t-zone on my forehead, and right in the middle of my upper lip.  And of course blending with my ring finger.  I am no make up artist, so I can’t explain the logic behind it, but I am telling you it perks up your entire face.  Now to dust on some powder/bronzer, crimp my eyelashes, light layer of lipstick and this working momma is ready for the day!
