My Goal For the Day

So, with finals quickly approaching you may have noticed my ever growing absence around the blog. Let me tell you, after my 12-14 hour days of studying the last thing I want to do when I come home is blog. I don't do anything instagram worthy either... so I feel as if I've fallen of the social media map! Nonetheless its finals season so I have to keep pushing. So today this is my motto.  

Be happy is a lofty goal, but if I can wrap up my paper (due tomorrow, so I'd better!) and get a good jump on outlining, I may be able to sleep without being awoken by a law school nightmare. That's my measure of sanity at this point. Last night I dreamed I was giving jury instructions in a case where my sister negligently ran into someone who then ran into someone else, who died. What those instructions were... I have no idea.

Law school does strange things to your mind y'all. I swear I'm slowly going insane.

Beauty Tuesday: November Favorites

It's been a while since I've done a monthly favorites round up, so I figured this post is long overdue. Lately as  sleep has become more of a priority in my life, I've begun to focus on mastering a five minute look. I swear it's quite the change from my working days were I routinely spent 20 minutes on just my eyes every morning. Ha. Now I feel good if I use more than 2 eye shadow shades.

So let me take you through my quick routine. I wash my face, then moisturize. While I'm waiting on my lotion to dry I go ahead with an eye shadow primer, then a light all over color, maybe blend a slightly darker color in the crease. I'm loving both the coastal scents natural palette and even the bronzer from the Naked Flushed palette. If I'm feeling really good I may even add an eyeliner. Ha! Then a quick swipe of the benefit they're real mascara (seriously the best mascara ever!) and I'm done with eyes.

Next up, blend the Supergoop CC cream all over. Great coverage, I don't even need a concealer! Finish with a setting powder, a little blush from my Naked Flushed palette. Done.

Then it's coffee time and apply the revlon just bitten kissable balm stain on my walk to campus.

Easy. What are your five minute face tips?
