Ready In A Flash

Do you ever have one of those mornings when you have to get ready VERY fast? Sleep through your alarm? Or watch too many hours of YouTube so you only have 5 minutes to get ready? Today I thought I’d focus on some of my favorite products for when I have to get ready in a flash!


COLAB Dry Shampoo in Tokyo

Let’s all have a round of applause for my friend Ruth who is the woman behind this outstanding dry shampoo! COLAB is a sheer and invisible dry shampoo that freshens up your hair, but also adds texture and volume. Besides all of that this stuff smells seriously amazing. Honestly, I’m bordering on using it as a perfume. Well done Ruth!

Juice Beauty CC Cream in Natural Glow

I’m all about the quick bases when I have no time to get ready in the morning so CC creams are perfect for that. I really love Juice Beauty’s Antioxidant Serum, so I had high hopes for their CC Cream. As you would expect from a CC cream it’s lightweight, moisturizing and evens out the skin tone. I love that it has SPF 30 and because of its formula I really feel like it’s helping my skin at the same time. Of course, I can’t live without a bit of my Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer under my eyes though!

Benefit Gimme Brow

A quick swipe of this Benefit Gimme Brow gel and I can call it a day. Although it doesn’t give my brows as much definition as a pencil it still fills them in and helps give my face some shape. I absolutely love this stuff!

Benefit They’re Real Mascara

Benefit They’re Real is one of my favorite mascaras because the wand manages to separate all of my annoying eyelashes. I’ve been blessed with misbehaving lashes, but this mascara almost detangles them and makes them be the best lashes they can be! Sometimes, I will also go individual fake lashes. The downside is that it can be tricky working with glue for individual lashes.

Fresh Sugar Balm in Plum

Tinted lip balms are my best friend, but they’re especially amazing when you’re in a hurry. The plum shade adds a tiny amount of pigment to the lips so it adds a bit of color, but nothing too scary.
