If You Only Have 3 Minutes, Do 5 Things

I love putting on makeup just as much as the next girl but sometimes (most of the time) I'm running very late and only have a few minutes to do my makeup before I run out of the house. When I only have 3 minutes, these are the 5 essentials that make a difference.

1. Foundation- Creme foundation or tinted moisturizer is best because you can apply it quickly with a brush or your fingers

2. Neutral creme shadow- A neutral can be in any color family, pink, purple, brown, blue, green, as long as it's light and sheer with a little sheen to brighten your eyes

3. Eyeliner- I generally use a liquid or pencil when i'm in a rush. I like the liquid liner with a small felt tip because it gives the most control for detailed lining (you can do a think or thin line without doing more than one pass)

4. Mascara- I'm all about using mascara on the top and bottom lashes because it opens up your eyes, especially if you have brown or blonde eyelashes

5. Neutral lipgloss- I like neutral lipgloss because if it smears or starts to come off, it's not noticeable

Here's the finished 3 minute look with my 5 essentials

Here are my 5 essentials
1. Benefit some kind-a gorgeous foundation in "deep"
    I use MAC 187SE stippling brush to apply the foundation
2. Benefit creaseless cream shadow/liner in "flatter me"
3. Palladio liquid eyeliner ELL274 "black shimmer"
4. DiorShow Iconic mascara 090 in "noir"
5. Sally Hansen natural butter lip shine in "nectar"

Race For The Cure

On Saturday, I walked with my Mom and tons of friends from ZFL in the Susan G. Komen Race For the Cure. I would assume that most of you know what it is but just in case, it's an annual 5k and 1 mile race that benefits breast cancer research and education and brings together mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, gmas, gpas, daughters, sons, cousins and friends who have been affected by breast cancer and to honor those who have or had it.

We had some much fun running, walking and just enjoying each other's conversation. I decided I would make a few hair bows for all of the girls to wear to unite us (and to match our tshirts). Here are a few pics of how the bows turned out and that fun morning!

My mom and I showed up bright and early to walk for my Aunt, her sister Brenda!
My tights and shoes are Nike. My thermal is from Madewell, My bow is DIY :)

Helping my friend Byrd with her was early, I should've stopped at Starbucks too. 

Goofing around as usual...

Danielle (middle) is the owner of ZFL and brought us all together. Courtney (right) is one of my oldest friends, we met in the 2nd grade :)

Action shot of us celebrating after the race!

We brought it in for a group celebration!
And here I am squeezing the life out of my bestie Danielle! SO glad she brought us all together for a great cause.
