I have ALWAYS loved makeup. I was the girl playing with all of my moms makeup, sitting at her mirror, dreaming of the day when I would have my own beautiful collection.
Fast forward 20 years, I am a stay at home mom, I have two boys. I am very BUSY, way busier than I ever thought I would be with children. As my kids have gotten a little bit older and out of the baby stage, I found that I had less and less time to think about myself and my appearance. When it came to makeup, you could find me at Target way too often, or if I was lucky at Sephora but with my limited time and budget I was quickly overwhelmed with all the options and makeup application techniques. And don’t even get me started about fumbling through my drawers and drawers of makeup products to find that ONE foundation!!!
So one day (this is 100% a true story) I was scrolling Instagram (as I am sure many of you do), and saw this STUNNING before and after photo, read the comment, and saw it was also a busy mom of boys. I thought-ok I need to check this product out, what was she doing that I was MISSING!?
I watched her apply her makeup in under 6 minutes, and it ALL FIT IN ONE COMPACT. My MIND was BLOWN.
I was IN. Here I am 11 months later, NOT a professional makeup artist, just a regular mom that wanted a fast simple routine - sharing it with the rest of the world.
