Mom Makeup in a Pinch

Disclosure: This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of bareMinerals. The opinions and text are all mine.

I’m sure many of you understand this struggle: get out the door and be on time somewhere with children. It’s a daily struggle over here, that’s for sure! One thing that tends to get thrown to the wayside is having myself look put together and completely made up. I do a lot of child wrangling while trying to get myself ready in the morning, so I am always reaching for makeup products that perform well in a pinch.

I recently had the opportunity to partner with bareMinerals to try out their new Complexion Rescue, which is the best of a BB cream, CC cream and tinted moisturizer. It’s a hydrating gel cream that offers amazing skincare benefits and coverage all in one, and it also has SPF 30. I picked mine up at my local Ulta.

bareMinerals put out this video on how to fake a full night’s rest. I love how it’s a real mom doing her makeup. Just take a look:

It inspired me to do my own video! I find myself running out of time to get ready very frequently, and sometimes I have to do some of my makeup in the car. I have to admit, sometimes that’s just easier because I can strap the girls into their seats and play their favorite music. So, I actually filmed myself doing my makeup in the car with both kids! I’m featuring the Complexion Rescue, trying it out for the first time, and using all other bareMinerals products.

Not too shabby for a makeup look that was done in five minutes! Seriously, though… my skin looks so good!
