Makeup Timesavers

I am so excited it is finally March, and spring is just around the corner.

After a long winter, it's so great to finally see the sun peeking through again. Daylight savings time can really reek havoc on my system for a while, so I am always searching for the best products that can make me, (or my clients), look more awake, refreshed and make up that time that mother nature took from us!

Losing that hour of sleep over the weekend, hurts, but it's nothing that a little concealer, (and caffeine) can't handle...or how about a concealer, with caffeine, to instantly perk up the eye area?

Smashbox High Definition Liquid Concealer does all that! The caffeine helps sooth the redness and puffiness around the eyes, while never getting cakey. Apply this after your foundation to lighten under eye circles and soften the lines.

Spring is the time to shed the heavy foundations and lighten the coverage with some of the newer BB creams. I'm a huge fan of Miracle Skin Transformer. It gives a flawless, airbrushed look to the skin while moisturizing, priming the skin, minimizing pores and providing a SPF 20. The formula glides on like silk resulting in perfect looking skin without looking like you're wearing a full face of makeup.

Continuing my quest for flawless skin, another one of my new beauty time savers comes from celebrity makeup artist, Kendra Richards. Heir Atelier Ultimate Makeup Prep is a hydrating serum designed to moisturize, nourish and prime the skin for a beautiful complexion. The silicone free formula is so lightweight and immediately absorbs into the skin. It's a must have on all of my shoots as it keeps the makeup looking fresh all day.

And finally, on those days where you just want to look alive, and fresh and have absolutely no time for makeup, there's always time for NARS Multiples. With a quick swipe of the stick on your cheeks, eyes and lips, your skin glows and instantly perks up with sheer beautiful color with a hint of vitamin E and acai oil.
