Friday Five --Must Haves

     This Friday I am featuring five must haves for my quick getting ready for the day morning routine.  As a mommy I have about 15-20 minutes of free time in the morning, if I am lucky,  to get ready for my day.  Here are my everyday go to's for a quick polished look.

1. Cover Girl Tru blend whipped foundation.

     I absolutely love this stuff.  It goes on light and blends so well with my skin tone.  I've tried other more expensive brands and this is still my favorite!  you can get it around $6-$7 and even less if you use a coupon :)

2.  Urban Decay Naked Palette

     This one is a bit more pricey at around $48.00, but it has been one of the best investments I've made.  There are 12 neutral shadows and a  primer potion.  I've had this for over a year and there is still plenty left.  I use the shadows for liner as well and sometimes a little on my cheeks or lips.  There are some great tutorials online as well for application ideas.  A couple swipes of the different colors and my eyes are done and pretty.

3.  Lash Curler

     The one that I have was from MAC several years and it was around$10-15 or so. You can get it online even cheaper now.  (never used this site, just saw it online)

     Revlon makes a good inexpensive one, as well as E.L.F cosmetics.  It just adds that extra pop to the eye.

4.  Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

     This stuff is the best hands down.  With a price of $4.99, it doesn't get any better! No clumping, always even and never disappoints.

5.  It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Treatment

     We can't forget the hair!  When I am in a hurry coming out of the shower I just spritz some of this in my damp hair and blow dry, and it makes it much more manageable.  This one is a bit pricey as well at around $22 for 4oz but this stuff really is a miracle, and great investment.  It repairs damage,  adds shine, protects against heat, makes it easy to comb through and more.  
If you have a friend in the beauty industry ask them to pick you up a bottle next time they're at their beauty supply store and they can get it at half the price!
