Makeover your makeup bag!

Alisha’s tip:

Many nights I go to bed without washing my face—let’s face it, with a newborn in the house, I’m happy to have my teeth brushed and my contacts removed before I hit the pillow.

But recently I’ve felt my face get a little grungy at night, especially after I’ve worn make-up all day, so I decided to go hunting for an easy to use make-up remover.

There are tons to choose from, but I settled on an off-brand detoxifying face wipe, that removes my make-up and leaves my face feeling fresh.

What I love about them is that they’re inexpensive and easy to use—I pull one out, wipe my face and throw it away! I can even do it with a baby in one arm!


Alana’s tip:

Have I mentioned before that I’m not big on makeup? It’s just the last thing on my “to do” list and often gets forgotten!  But lately, I am trying to find at least a few minutes in the morning so that I look presentable 🙂

My big find is “BB cream”.  According to Garnier (which is the brand I use), it “renews, brightens, evens, hydrates, and protects”.

I personally use it instead of foundation to even out my skin and give a nice base to a light layer of blush and lip gloss.  I still have much to learn, but I love this new go-to product for a quick and easy morning routine!
