Face Chart - Travel Edition

I have a lot of experiencing traveling for work, and have gotten the make-up routine down to a science (5 minutes to be exact).  When you have to wake up at 4:30am for a 7am flight, its important to preserve every extra minute of sleep you can!  While I LOVE make-up and could honestly use 25 products or more in one sitting for the perfect look, you can still look perfect with 7 products!   

Excuse the tired eyes, these pictures were taken at 5:45am this morning!  Make-up can work wonders, but when you are tired its hard to cover that up. 

7 MUST HAVE products for a 5 minute face -
  • Tinted Moisturizer (with SPF) 
  • Blush 
  • Bronzer 
  • Eye Liner
  • Cream Eye Shadow, natural color 
  • Mascara
  • Lipstick
My 7 step by step instructions:
  • Rub Tinted Moisturizer all over your face (make sure your moisturizer always has SPF) 
  • Blend in Bronzer on the highlights of your face (chin, jawbone, cheeks, nose, forehead)
  • Blot blush along the apple of your cheek and blend in and up along your cheek bone. 
  • Smear in your cream shadow along your entire lid
  • Line your lids with a sharpened pencil or ink liner 
  • Brush on two to three coats of your mascara 
  • apply your Lip color!  
Tips for Make-up when traveling
  • Choose longwear options (especially for eyes).  When you are on the go, sometimes your makeup is also (which would be tragic), so I recommend choosing as many products as possible that are long wearing.  Bobbi Brown's new long wear collection is amazing, it will not come off or rub off!  
  • Choose bright colors, when you are tired they help to make you look like you are awake!  
  • Keep chap-stick (colored or not) with you, as your lips will get dry on the plane!    
Vola!  The perfect stay-put face for your early morning flight, or the weekend when you just don't feel like painting the whole picture!
