Quick Everyday Makeup

Remember when a 40 hour a week job was called a "9 to 5"? What even is that? If I had to be at work at 9 am, I'd probably actually workout in the morning. Maybe. While I do enjoy getting out of work early in the day, I don't exactly love my arrival time of 6:00 am. I legit roll out of bed and into work, there is no "morning routine" of coffee and breakfast and reading the newspaper (newspaper? god I'm old!)  But I absolutely refuse to leave the house looking like I could be an extra on The Walking Dead. I have to at least do minimal makeup so that when you look at me, you think I'm awake. Even though my mind and soul is still very much asleep in dreamland. 

Get to the point, Kelly. Here is a very quick video of my very quick early morning makeup. 
I had a lot of fun editing this one. It's definitely my favorite so far! I feel like I'm actually starting to get the hang of this... sorta. 

What are your mornings like? Do you have time to wake up and relax and get fully ready? Or are you zombie walking out the door before the sun comes up like me? 
Thank you for watching, I hope your Monday isn't manic!

  1. I love this video! Loving the extra touch of the "rising" products hahaha ;) nice touch. Also, I can really up my eyeshadow game, and use a few colors and blend more, even in the am!

  2. Yep. Second Fav video. I mean, you cannot beat the unicorn video, I'm sorry. If i'm strapped for time in the mornings I just do foundation, eye liner, Mascara, and chapstick.

  3. I start at 8am and I roll out of bed to work. I'm pretty sure a 9am start time wouldn't change a thing for me! I just can't be bothered with make up to see the same people I see every day in an office that does not require outside interaction. Props to people who do!!! I wish I started earlier. My husband starts at 5:30 am which is pushing it but I'd love 7am

  4. Girl I LOVE your videos. I use the Benefit Gimmie Brow too...amazing stuff. I usually have to be there at 7:30 so these quick tips are great.

  5. I think you are amazing! I love making youtube videos but I am no way a beauty guru so yours are always super helpful :)

  6. hahaha i love you. i sometimes forget about that unicorn video just because it was such a nightmare to film and edit.
    mascara for life!

  7. thanks! I was pretty excited about that part too and I think I'm gonna always do products that way now :)

  8. This is close to what my everyday makeup looks like(: Thanks for sharing!
