5 products, 5 minutes: everyday makeup routine

There’s just something about getting dressed and putting yourself together that seems to make the whole day more productive even if you’re working from home. I don’t like to spend a lot of extra time doing either since no one other than my son sees me during the day. Honestly, when I was still teaching full time I still didn’t put much effort into my appearance! I’ve made it a goal to always get dressed in real, yet comfortable clothes everyday plus try to do a little makeup. I’m sharing my 5 minute (or less) routine using 5 products all of which can be found at your local drugstore or Ulta. As always all of the items are linked on my liketoknow.it account!

After I get dressed and brush my hair either leaving it down or throwing it up somehow I make sure to start with a clean face and moisturizer. My first step is to apply Tula’s Blurring Primer with my hands. I do have a discount code for you to use: PIGSFLY.

Second step is to wet a sponge, I like RealTechnique’s version. It’s affordable and I replace them monthly for sanitary reasons. I then go in with a small amount of It Cosmetics Illumination Tinted SPF using the damp sponge. I throughly blend that and make sure to apply a little to my undereye area as well.

Third step is to apply a small amount of Physican’s Formula Butter Bronzer with a large face brush. Make sure to get your neck as well so it blends!

Final step is the curl your eyelashes and brush eyebrows. I then apply L’Oreal Voluminous Primer and Mascara in Blackest Black. You can do as many coats as you like! On weekdays I usually just do a quick one on top. Feel free to apply lipblam/gloss of your choice and even use a setting spray if you like.

I love that this whole process doesn’t take long or many products. It gives me just enough coverage to feel confident and put together for the day. I did a short video on my Instagram if you’d like to see the whole process. All of the products I shared today can be shopped in the free liketoknow.it app and you can even save your favorites for shopping at a later time!

What’s one thing that helps you feel motivated for the day? Let me know in the comments below!

My Experience With Foligain

Ever had a bad hair day? Or even bad hair month or year? That’s what it feels like when you have thinning hair. 
I’ve always had extremely long and fine hair, but over the years certain areas have thinned so much that you can see my scalp, especially if my hair is worn up and away from my face. 
I know it’s mostly genetics but also partly many years of having pulled my hair back tightly in a ballet bun. I’m also sure having long hair for my entire life has put more stress on my scalp when my hair is pulled up. Taking into account all these factors together and you have a perfect storm for thinning hair.
I feel like thinning hair is something most women deal with at some point in their lives, but I don’t feel like anyone really talks about it. I’ve never really found a solution for the areas of my hair that are thinning except for putting a little bronzer there to hopefully cover it up a bit. When I heard about Foligain’s Triple Action System for Women I knew I had to give it a try!
These are the main areas of thinning that I have. It makes it very difficult to wear my hair up because it always ends up looking patchy. 
This is honestly one of the reasons why you’ll see me with a headband on most of the time when my hair is pulled up. I began using the Foligain system exclusively at the end of May. 

It’s been six weeks total now and I feel like I can honestly tell a difference in the fullness and body of my hair!

The steps are very easy! 3-5 times a week you wash your hair with the system. It begins with the Triple Action Shampoo which you massage into your scalp and then let sit for a few minutes to soak in. 
It is followed with the Triple Action Conditioner. Lather it into your hair. Both of the products smell amazing and don’t leave any residue. They contain ingredients that are great for hair like biotin, Jojoba Oil, and Trioxidil Complex. 
The final step is four sprays to the scalp of the Foligain Triple Action Targeted Formula; massage it into the scalp. It can be rinsed out after four hours or left on indefinitely!
After the serum, I like to use the Foligain Hair & Scalp Roller to help with the massage process. It helps circulate blood to the scalp and also helps with removal of dead skin and increases the effectiveness + absorption of the solution. 
I truly cannot believe how much stronger and more full my hair feels after just six weeks of using this system! I’m so impressed and can’t wait to see where my hair is in another six weeks. 
These products are extremely affordable and are available at www.foligain.com, www.amazon.com, www.shoplet.com, and H-E-B Stores. Questions about Foligain? Leave me a comment and I’ll be glad to answer!
