10 Products, 10 Minutes to an Easy Makeup Look

Some mornings, I wake up eager and ready to pull together a detailed, fabulous makeup look. Most mornings, I have snoozed for 18 minutes, am running late, and need to pull together a quick made-up face. Here’s the rundown for a look I’ve been doing a lot the past few months. It takes me about 7-8 minutes, so for those not as quick on the draw, let’s call it an even 10 minutes.

Jenn’s Ten-Minute Face: Winter Edition

Back in September, I wrote a post about my five-minute make-up face.  Now that the heat has FINALLY gone away, I can tolerate wearing a little more product.  For winter, I’ve been wearing foundation everyday and have punched up the color on my lips.
