the big four.

I am geekalicious and I have a confession: Time management is my downfall.

This morning, I had to be at the Berkeley boutique early to help film the fabulous beauty artists there, which meant after a fight with my snooze button, I woke up with 20 minutes to get ready. Needless to say, I barely put on any makeup…and was looking tired. Thankfully, at Benefit, we don’t think you need a ton of makeup to make a difference.

The awesome gals at the boutique helped me out and just added 4 products that made a big impact! I mean, if that’s not something I can find time for, I don’t know what is.

What I needed:

  1. brow zings
  2. high brow
  3. sugarbomb
  4. benetint lip balm with SPF 15

Here is the before (you can tell how rushed I was…and how unprepared for pictures by my wonky wing-tip hair):

the before basics: magic ink, leggy shadow & BADgal lash

fill in those sparse brows with brow zings

lightly sweep on sugarbomb on apples of cheeks

the halfway point: see the difference in those brows!

blend in high brow under brows

the after: what a difference a brow makes!

This was all in about 3 minutes to warm up my complexion and really define my face with my brows! I am definitely using these every morning…of course, I might need to pack them in my purse for inevitable beauty-on-the-go.
